This live album - released by the mighty Southern Lord in 2005, but recorded in 1989 - captures Wino-era VITUS at their absolute best. In fact, Live might be a better career retrospective than the compilation intended to be just that, Heavier Than Thou. Wino is in top form here, not only vocally, but also hammering out riff after riff to accompany the grossly underrated Dave Chandler. The fact that quality SAINT VITUS boots are few and far between makes the band's only official live album (belated as it may be) absolutely essential. Every song here is a highlight, but also check for Chandler's homage to Batman during his solo break in "Clear Windowpane".

Love the site. I love this live saintvitus. I was wondering if you could re-up the electric wizard live at the 2005 Roadburn festival recording you had a few posts back.

Keep up the good work.

Anomic-- You're looking for "Disco Marching Kraft" and "Individual Sky Cruiser", right? I don't have either of them, but I'm sure someone here can up "DMK" for us. I'd like to have it too. The second one is 7" only. Hopefully someone out there can up it for us, but I'm not holding breath.

Anonymous People-- Glad you're digging both G.O.M.E. and the live Vitus. I'll re-up the live Wizard this week and post some old Vitus. Check back for other bands in that vein as well. I have some rare Warhorse you guys might dig.
