God Seed's performance at Wacken 2008 where they headlined the main stage in front of 75,000 Screaming fans is being released on October 25th in North America and October 21st in Europe.
The Wacken performance was a reconstruction of the controversial Black Mass show from Krakow in 2004 filmed in a TV studio in Kraków, Poland.
The concert featured sheep heads on stakes, "crucified" nude models, satanic symbols, and eighty liters of sheep's blood. The band came under fire for violating Polish anti-blasphemy laws as well as Polish animal rights laws, resulting in a police investigation with allegations of religious offence and cruelty to animals. The band went free of all charges and at Wacken 2008 they recreated this now legendary show in all its glory.
This show is made available as a Live CD, including the film of the entire show on DVD. The album is only available in a deluxe digipack edition and holds liner notes from the band about the process of recreating this special show.
God Seed came to life as a result of a dispute over the band name Gorgoroth and the name was chosen as the banner under which Gaahl and King wanted to continue their art.
Gaahl and King went on to take the band to new heights in 2007 & 2008 when they played to sold out clubs and headlined some of the biggest festivals in Europe.
