Last year, the Austrian band Blank Manuskript were one of the bands performing at the Night Of The Prog Festival and pleased the festival crowd on Friday. Now the band has released a live album consisting partly of recordings of this performance (alongside ARGEKultur Festival Salzburg and Woodstock Forever).
At almost 80 minutes, A Live Document offers a concert-like cross-section of the band’s previous concept albums. The recordings are from the aforementioned festivals and these were the three biggest performances in 2022 for the band.
A lively journey through the versatile oevre of Blank Manuskript – ear candy is guaranteed!
