  • by Jeff Micham

    Really good self released effort to remember the shows of the last tour. One little thing you need to have in mind for the next one: the 16 tracks can't be recorded on one CD so you may have this in mind to master the final tracks with fades so we can burn our CDR's properly (or cut some stuff to get all the music in one CDR). Anyway, great live sh**t!!!! Cheers from Argentina (again!!!)...

    The live album download is awesome! EXCELLENT quality, Martin did a great job! It's a perfect souvenir for anyone who attended any of the shows all over the world so far this year. (NYC here!) Not my first time ordering from the webshop and certainly not my last. Thanks guys!

    A great souvenir of the 2013 tour. Saw them in Los Angeles and they put on a kick-ass, high energy show. Long, generous set list, too. Every song you could want to hear is here. Sure, Simon’s voice cracks in a few places and there are some high notes that are just out of reach but this is a raw, unedited live performance. They had been on tour for a while at this point, probably with little sleep. These are demanding songs even when you’re not running around on stage and singing 16 songs in a row. I really hope he stays with the band.

    The band sounds really tight. They do a good job with the backing vocals live and the recorded sound of the instruments is excellent. Any time the guitar drops out and it’s just bass and drums I picture Peter swaying back and forth in that red leather jacket. Maritn is one of the best guitar players out there. I like that he doesn’t go for all the Yngwie noodlie-noodlie crap that helped kill rock music for the fans that didn’t play guitar. He plays rock guitar right—octaves and harmonics but no whammy bar a la Joe Perry or Slash. With some live albums you really miss the overdubs when there’s only one guitar player in the band but here it never feels like anything’s missing. Eric is an outstanding drummer and as much as I love drum solos, like most fans I’d rather hear another song so kudos for that, too.

    The world really needs a band like Crashdiet right now. It seems like the only good rock music left in America are the snippets we hear in movies and T.V. commercials. It takes hearing “Back in the New York Groove” in a DiCaprio movie to remember what a great song that was—you’ll never hear it on the radio again. Many bands have the look but not the chops to back it up or might play great but not have the songs (Dream Theater). They might borrow a lot of their song titles from other bands but Crashdiet are original and current and I hope they come back to Los Angeles again soon. And next year the Wiltern instead of the Whisky!

    I normally hate livecd's, so the fact that I bought this one means something. It's an easy download and very clean sound. I've been to a few shows of this tour and listening to this album brings back great memories.my favourite live song : cocaĂŻne cowboys!! Too bad I don't understand a word Simon is saying inbetween songs :D

    This live album is amazing! I was lucky enough to see Crashdiet when they were in the US (Utah).And this live album does a great job capturing the energy and quality sound that you get when seeing them live!! Rock on Crashdiet!

    It's KOOOL!

    To start very easy download, I think the album sounds great for a live cd, I know it was many different shows combined into one cd. The mastering I think was done very well, as an album it sounds very good. // Actually it was only one show, the one in Stockholm! Thanks for the review! Cheers //LONDON

    Great live album! 83 minutes of awesome kick ass rock n roll. Their harmonies are bang on and the band is tight as fuck.

    Good to hear lots and lots of new songs of "The Savage Playground" in the setlist and the guest appearances are an added bonus.

    If you haven't already brought this album you're missing out!!

    CRASHDIET KICKS ASS EVERY TIME!!! So happy to see this is available now for all Crashdiet fans. I bought this when they were raising money for their tour and it was money well spent. Kiskass setlist from start to finish. Im old school so I put mine on a cd and I love to crank it to 11 til the speakers are ready to blow whether at home or in my car. Ive been a hardcore Diethead for 8 years now and have been lucky enough to see them live in 2011 and 2013 in US. This album is raw, in your face, balls to the wall rock n roll just like the live shows. Crank it up, you will feel like you are there. Also happy to have good recording of Simon singing old and new songs. HELL YEAH!!! This album has excellent sound quality and is full of passion and energy. That's what live music is all about and Crashdiet definitely has a live gem here. SO CHECK IT OUT AND RAISE YOUR FISTS AND ROCK IT MY FRIENDS YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! HELLS YEAH!!! RN'R FOREVER!!! DIEHARD DIETHEAD FOREVER!!!

    it's a great live! sound is amazing and really takes you 'in' the live tour. The setlist has a lot of great songs (more than the italian tour 2013) so "the trip" is endless...! well done guys!!

    It's great that the band's live condition on last winter was recorded! The set list works very well and it's a perfect mix of old and new songs. Simon's voice is full of attitude, anarchy and rock'n'roll. Specially "Breakin the chainz" and "Chemical" sounds awesome on live from the old songs."Garden of Babylon" is one of the best songs from the new album and it really works on live too. In that song you can notice how well the band plays together at the moment. I should also mention "Liquid Jesus" because this live version is just great. I'm really happy that "Excited" is there too. It's my favorite song from the new album and I really hope that it would be on the set list in future too. On live it sounded even better than on the album. This record is what sleaze rock is about. It really takes you to the gig. Keep up the good work guys!

    This is actually one of the best ideas you vever had. It brings back wonderful memories of a great concert and some special time with you guys. It 's great to finally have some of the old songs performed by Simon and he does them credit, oh yes. My favs are It's a Miracle and the Blues Jam. It's an absolute must for every Crash fan imo and a perfect addition to the collection. I'm listening to it now and everytime I do I love it more. A special memory of a special (if cursed) tour which tightened the bond between Crashdiet and their fans even more. Kudos for having pulled it through despite the heavy obstacles in the way. You guys made me proud to be part of this *bows*

    My best friend and I missed seeing the band live here in the U.S. (hadn't heard of them until after they were in our city) and this recording helped to convince us to cash in our airline miles to fly to Stockholm and drive down to see the band in Copenhagen and Malmo in October! (Seriously - you only live once, right?!) It's that amazing. I own countless live recordings of various bands and usually find that the energy of the performance doesn't come across in a live recording - but this album is truly an exception - it's as raw and intoxicating as I would expect CrashDiet to be. The song list is great, and I was thrilled to see that Excited and Garden of Babylon were included. The download for the lossless version was quick and easy, and the artwork is fantastic! Can't wait for October to experience the band for myself!! - *Jenna*

    "Scandinavian Hell Tour 2013" is a high quality live download by Crashdiet following their IndieGoGo Campaign.

    The opening track, Change The World, is a sort of hymn. It encorauges people to think with their own mind and live is just awesome. Circus is another track which comes from the street. Every word smells like gutter, while the guitar keep screaming like a hot girl for the entire song.

    The third song, Tikket, is a nice piece of songwriting and it's well performed by the current line-up. Although it has been written by Dave Lepard, Simon and the guyz play it with lots of feeling. Anarchy is just perfect for a live show: it has the words, the power and the blast of a riot.

    Then, Breakin The Chainz reminds us the old days, but nowadays it's played in a nice original way, so it sounds like it was written yesterday. Rebel: the title says all. It's one of the most loved track in Generation Wild, but the stage's taste glorify it in a mystic way.

    The work behind records infects the studio version of Chemical. Now we have the chance to hear it in a more natural way, enjoying every single note. Queen Obscene is a classic and one of the most beautiful song of the last decade. Live is pure madness, and the guyz know how to exalt it. Then we can admire the sounds of Got A Reason, with experimental riffs and guitar works. This is a nice piece of classic Rock 'n' Roll, and live is as raw as dirty sex.

    It's A Miracle and Riot In Everyone are pearls of Dave Lepard; but he's still in Crashdiet's hearts. We clearly feel him, even if they are sang by another rocker. Simon Cruz performs 'em well: in a personal way, but with the right sensations and emotions. Between those two masterpieces, we find Garden Of Babylon. The oriental shades are excited by this live version, which shows us that Crashdiet can make the difference with every song.

    Excited could be the sountrack of a Hollywood's Movie. The rythm and the lyrics explode on stage, this version is so emotional and unique. The piano of Otto Welton and the technique of Crashdiet narrate this urban story with feeling and pleasure.

    The presence of Liquid Jesus is a good surprise. It's a bonus track, so it wasn't expected to be heard live. Thin Lazy, Linda Öst and Otto Welton give the right “color” at this exibition. This song is perfect for parties and sad days. It took yer pain away. Another anthem is Generation Wild. The title track of the third album of Crashdiet was clearly written to be lived on stage. The lyrics are thrilling and attractive, clearly speaking about the rising of a generation. But every good generation should follow them.

    The last track of “Scandinavian Hell Tour 2013” is Cocaine Cowboys. The blues jam acting as intro is something Crashdiet never shared with the fans. It's another revelation of this show and introduces one of the rawest song of the latest studio work. On stage is just wonderful.

    So... This is my poor review. I just shared it with you all because this record was worth every money they ask. 100% recommended!

    Great setlist. Especially very cool to hear Liquid Jesus, since it's not played often live. High quality recording, and as mentioned by others, a good mix of new and old CrashdĂŻet. Simon does it justice! Awesome!

    Kick ass. You guys always knock it out of the park!!! Money well spent
  • by Keith Renfro
    Am I glad I downloaded this!! The sound is simply amazing. Listening to this CD puts me back in the many up close shows I seen when they toured the USA back in March 2013. This CD is just what I wanted. It's perfect! Thank you for this CD Crashdiet!!

    Wanna experience Crashdiet live? Besides the big tours, festivals and concerts? Originally only a perk in the „Bring the music, save the tour“ campaign - now is your chance to get a one of a kind experience. Martin has done a fantastic job mixing: Look forward to a crystal clear sound adventure and if you listen, focus on listening! You'll be able to recognize every single note, every beat of Eric's drums.

    Recorded during the “Scandinavian Hell Tour” in Stockholm this collection of songs enables you to feel like you're actually there - live!. Put your headphones on (the good ones ), close your eyes and just listen. It doesn’t matter if you've seen the show in Stockholm, in Frankfurt or Barcelona. Or if you've never seen any before. You're gonna sense it trough the music. The singing and dancing crowd, the guys on stage and this feeling you only get if you hear it live. Celebrate with us lucky owners this fantastic band and enjoy one of the best live recordings this year.

    A high quality live recording of what sounds like a very high quality performance! The setlist features a good balance of new material from 'The Savage Playground', and the band's previous albums--even if some of the best tunes from 'The Unattractive Revolution' are lacking. The band play very well, and with enthusiasm, and this comes across on the recording. It sounds raw and energetic, just as a metal performance should. The album very much captures the energy of a Crashdiet live show, providing the opportunity to experience your favourite Crashdiet songs as they sound on the stage.

    I have my bf to thank for introducing me to this band and with perfect timing to go see them live and appreciate what they have to offer. I got involved with the Indiegogo campaign after seeing them here in Vegas in March and I had a blast watching them perform. I'm not a massive fan of live recordings but like a previous reviewer wrote it sounds so close to what it was like standing in the crowd watching these 4 tear up the stage. Great job guys! worth every penny and I can't wait to see you in Sweden soon!
