Very good sound. Thanks to piktstevs for sharing this recording on DIME.

The show at 19. Wave-Gotik-Treffen was a part of the band's Ankoku Butoh Tour. This recording is incomplete and is probably missing 1,5 track ("Souvereign" is fading out and "Sparks" is missing completely). I didn't attend the event myself, so can't comment anything regarding the actual performance, just can note that I dont like the Agra Halle because of the fact that regardless what kind of music is played there, it drowns in the immense space of that industrial hangar.
So the quality of this recording is below the average (5/10). I left the recording uncompressed, just made the sound panorama correction, some very slight EQ and tried to attenuate irritating talkings, handling noises, etc. The recording was very polluted. I even removed the annoucement, because it was unrepairable.
There is another, more complete version of this show, taped by a different guy with the different equipment, appeared on DIME right after the show.
