Check Out This Video Playlist of Legendary Wacken Performances
You guys may already be familiar with the video streaming platform Qello from when they released Lamb of God’s excellent As The Palaces Burn documentary a few months ago, but if not, let this serve as an introduction.
In the spirit on the summer festival season, which is now in full swing, I’ve compiled a video playlist of my favorite performances from Wacken, the big daddy summer festival to end all festivals. Qello has a pretty impressive library of live performance DVDs and documentaries streaming on-demand — this week they’ll be releasing new titles by Mastodon, all four Big 4 bands, Rob Zombie and Black Sabbath — but my playlist focuses on titles culled from Wacken in years past, featuring Enslaved, Ensiferum, Municipal Waste, Overkill and others.
I’ve sadly never been to Wacken, but watching these clips is the next best thing. Check them out right here — several clips from each show are available for free for a limited time.
