From the very first guitar chords, that unmistakable frying, sizzling, and wailing signature sound of Dave Chandler as well as the trademark deeply resonant vocals of Scott "Wino" Weinrich, any adherent of classic doom metal will immediately know: this is Saint Vitus. Despite having been around for more than 35 years, the American heavy legends are only now getting ready to release their second official live album after the 1990 seminal Live record.
Saint Vitus taped Live Vol. 2 during the tour for their acclaimed comeback album Lillie: F-65 (2012) at the Kulturfabrik in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg on March 19, 2013. Album and tour marked the return of legendary vocalist Scott "Wino" Weinrich. The undisputed godfathers of American doom metal performed in front of many sold out venues in a triumphant harvest of long overdue laurels. Out of respect for their vintage heritage, Saint Vitus chose to preserve the raw and pure live sound without cleaning up and patching with overdubs. As a result, Live Vol. 2 is a true live document.
The band roars through a set of classics (“War Is Our Destiny,” "Born To Late” and “Dying Inside”) at maximum volume leaving no doubt that this is prime Vitus. Strictly limited one-time double vinyl pressing.
