    The DVD contains a eleven song concert, a video for the song "Black Room" and a interview with the band.  The concert was taped in a very small venue, probably a pub, and if I had to guess the location I would say some where in the general area of Norway.  Because the venue was so small the concert footage has a very personal feeling to it.  Set up behind the band is a screen that flashes images of a skull, upside down cross, and text.  It doesn't take very long to realize that Krux is not your normal every day death metal band.  Leif's vocal style has a very modern rock feel to it.  The songs, "Black Room", "Enigma Ezb", Nimis", and  "Popocatépetl" completely blew me away. "Enigma Ezb" has a very cool twin guitar rhythm arrangement and sound.  As a general rule with death metal bands the songs are usually written and recorded in such away where the songs don't sound like they have very much of a structure.  This is not the case with Krux.  Leif's vocal style gives the songs a very progressive metal feel.
    If you are into progressive metal or death metal than this DVD is defiantly worth checking out.
