Alice Cooper - Raise The Dead Live From Wacken

Alice Cooper is a household name and an instantly recognisable figure whose career has spanned five decades, and whose art has inspired many other artists we all know and love.

Anyone who has seen Alice Cooper live will tell you that he puts on an amazing show it is more than just a rock concert; next month Cooper will be release a live album; Raise The Dead Live From Wacken, which will also be as a CD/DVD Digipack.

Raise The Dead Live From Wacken is a double CD which plays the complete concert, the sound is perfect; the levels are spot on, Cooper's vocals are clear, the band sound amazing and most importantly, the sound of the crowd does not drown out the performance.

The album also highlights how talented his team of musicians are; Ryan Roxie, Chuck Garric, Orianthi , Tommy Henriksen and Glen Sobel put on faultless performances, showing that they are all at the top of their game.

The DVD only has 22 songs rather than the full 24 songs which feature on the CD, but much like the CD, the sound levels are perfect and you almost get the full Alice Cooper show experience.

Raise The Dead Live From Wacken is a great release which proves why Alice Cooper has had such a long and successful career. Cooper fans will love it as it is the closest you'll get to experiencing a Cooper show without actually being there, and it is bound to bring new fans into the fold. It shows that there can be more to a rock and roll show than just looking pretty and playing instruments.
