There's not really too much to comment on this list as they are live albums. That said, everything listed here is completely solid and worth checking out.
Avantasia- Avantasia Live (Ghostlights Bonus CD)
Circus Maximus- Havoc (Bonus Live CD)
I would have included these in the main list, but as they are bonus discs, it doesn't really seem fair. But they are both stellar.
5.) Steel Panther- Live From Lexxi's Mom's Garage
FFO: Comedy, Glam Rock, Acoustic
A fun live acoustic Steel Panther show. This is sure to make your glam loving significant other scream for joy, then leave you for Steel Panther.
4.) Seventh Wonder- Welcome to Atlanta Live 2014
FFO: Progressive Metal, Power Metal
Seventh Wonder performing the landmark album, Mercy Falls, at ProgPower 2014 in Atlanta with a special Best Of set & a couple studio tracks at the end. Magnificent album and magnificent recording.
3.) Leprous- Live At Rockefeller Music Hall
FFO- Progressive Metal
The double disc live album is a live recording of the band's hometown show in Oslo, Norway from June 4th, 2016. Such an incredible band performing a nearly perfect setlist with outstanding quality production.
2.) Primordial- Gods To The Godless (Live At Band Your Head Festival 2015)
FFO- Black Metal, Pagan Metal, Celtic Metal
Primordial performing an 80 minute set at 2015's Bang Your Head Festival, featuring a fantastic setlist, stunning production and no pressure as the band didn't realize the show was recorded.
1.) Pain Of Salvation- Remedy Lane (Re:mixed & Re:lived)
FFO- Progressive Metal
Disc 2 of this release is Pain Of Salvation playing Remedy Lane in it's entirety at ProgPower USA 2014 in Atlanta, GA. Yes, the same festival Seventh Wonder recorded their live release this year. One of the greatest Progressive Metal albums laid down to record being performed live and giving Daniel Gildenlow the inspiration to revisit their Metal roots with their upcoming album, In The Passing Light Of Day. Superb!
