Check out the live video here:  https://youtu.be/XYanGKGiPsI

 

Victor states:
"As a bonus DVD for our new album release "Rush Of Death", we compiled an extensive package of live material from our tours in 2019: From atmospheric recordings at the sold-out club show in Belarus to the bombastic concert at the Jeonju Stadium in Korea, which was our absolute highlight of 2019. There will also be some great impressions of ALMANAC shows at the Metalfest Open Air in Pilsen/CZ and the Big Gun Festival in Moscow/RUS. All recordings are a 100% live - without any touch ups or corrections (which is quite rare on today's DVD market). We hope you have fun listening and watching our handmade music!"

Victory at final run at german Rallycross Mastership 2019!

Unbelieveable victory at the final run for the German Rallycross Mastership 2019! The weather god has listened to my request, sending some rain convenient for the final race. As the power of the engine is not that important at a slippy surface, it actually was a dance on a razor blade. So I was totally happy, reaching the checkered flag first, having some little scratch at the car and a big advantage. That was a fantastic finish of a super successful mastership! A large part of my success belongs to my fantastic team Günter Beckers and Uwe Godau, who optimised my car from run to run. Thanks to all of you, who gave me support at the race track or at the internet!
