I sometimes come to a tricky dilemma, why trying to make money, by all means, on the back of almost any musical accessories?! If being more precise, I must say the first 7 tracks are MAYEM live, including various albums, while "Chainsaw Gustfauck" seems to benefit of the best interpretation ever or perhaps the most appropriate studio version. The other 5 tracks are pre-productions of "Grand Of Declaration Of War", that is to say the unpolished and raw version. It would have been correct for this CD to appear before last MAYEM album. You should be happy for not buying it already, since you had spent money for 7 live tracks and 12 unrepresentative wiredrawn ones, at least as far as MAYEM's sound is concerned.

You do not miss a thing if not listening to this CD, as the sound itself is cheap. You can still fulfill an expensive whim: Maniac, Necrobutcher, Hellhammer and Blasphemer in concert. If the French label had the inspiration of including at least a video track, perhaps it would have been justified releasing this material. Otherwise, you and only can contradict me!
