"Green Carnation are one of a kind in the world of progressive metal. Founded by ex-Emperor bassist Terje Vik Schei (aka Tchort) in 1990 and coming into bloom at the turn of the millennium, Green Carnation have since been associated with local peers In The Woods… with whom they also share members all along. In the eyes of many fans their crowning achievement was 2001's "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness", a sixty minute long progressive metal masterpiece, putting the band, and the small Norwegian city of Kristiansand, on the map. It is a record that both comes to terms with the tragic loss of Tchort's daughter and embraces the birth of his son.

Now, after a crowdfunding campaign that made the whole project possible the band and production team, in collaboration with Prophecy Productions are thrilled to present "Last Day Of Darkness", a 95 minute documentary and concert film based around their 2016 world tour celebrating the 15th anniversary of "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness" and the grand finale in the band's native Kristiansand. The documentary features candid behind-the-scenes and rehearsal footage from that tour and an exclusive interview with band leader and "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness" composer Tchort delving into the personal and background details of Green Carnation's most important album. The concert film captures Green Carnation performing "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness" in its entirety at the epic, final tour show in Kristiansand's Kilden Konserthus. Featuring multi-camera production and splendid sound these recordings together with the documentary show Green Carnation as you've never seen or heard them before.

With the front cover by Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Enslaved, Arcturus, Arch Enemy) and additional artwork by Niklas Sundin (Dark Tranquillity) the "Last Day Of Darkness" high size Digipak includes the documentary and concert film on DVD, the full concert audio on CD, and a 12-page booklet with a preface written by the DVD's director and an exclusive interview with singer Kjetil Nordhus. For those more interested in the sonic journey, Prophecy is offering a gatefold double LP featuring the concert audio on vinyl as well as the story behind "Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness" narrated by Tchort as spoken-word bonus content. This is the ultimate acquisition for all fans of Green Carnation and those who want to celebrate an iconic release. "Last Day Of Darkness" is a potent monument honoring one of the 2000's most important prog metal releases."

Didn’t get the DVD yet, only the live album. It’s awesome of course - such a great album and this live performance is spot on! Kjetil is one of the best vocalists in prog these days.

The ppusa show of Green Carnation was indeed incredible. I wish that was the show on here, but this show from Norway is really really great too.

Wasn't at PPUSA to see it, so this goes high on my list.

I gave the disc another spin this afternoon - it's been a while. Yep, still love it.

***Same here -- I don't know that this DVD will give me the same feeling that I had at the PP show - but when you see a show like that, and have a special band / CD that remains timeless, you have to get the show just to have proof it existed. Ordered !!!

I finally got around to popping this into the player - and guess what ? Problems ....... First off, this is in PAL format. Dug out my Pal player from a box and started over...... nope. Took my player 5 tries to start the DVD. Very weird. So now it starts - and I get to the menu - it says " play movie " ...... so I hit it. A documentary starts. Dont' want that - I want the show. play around in the menu some, and nothing. Back to the doc - no concert. The documentary is an hour long - so I fast forward through it - and about half way through, lo and behold - there is a concert. Are you kidding me ?? I have to literally fast forward 30 min to find the show ? If I'm doing something wrong - someone please tell me.

On to the show .....for standard quality, this is excellent in both audio and video ......it's a very clear recording, with every instrument placed where it should be (hey there are 3 guitars) and it's vocal heavy as well ...... you can now actually hear the words of Light of Day where as on the CD, it was a bit difficult. Kjetil's vocals are way up front, but he is a bit off on some of the higher notes - not like at PP where he was dead on ..... overall, he is excellent. The vibe is not the same of course, as it was at Prog Power, but it's damn close. Overall - if you are a fan of this disc - ( the package comes with the live CD of the show as well ), you need to own this if you have a PAL player..... I'm guessing this is a one off tour from this band and making the DVD was the legacy of it. The disc actually makes more sense once you know what Light of Day is about - it's all explained in the documentary, and being able to hear the words make it more emotional as well.....

It's essential if you love the disc - want to see the show - or want a live copy on CD.
