of live acts from 1974, material mostly taken from "Blind Windows" and some from "The Fountain Beyond the Sunrise", with high sound quality. All in all, this boxed-set is a great and complete discography of this underground Austrian Progressive rock band, that more or less remained an underground group for a long time. *** 2) KYRIE ELEISON's history begins in Argentina in middle 1998, when Diego Ribeiro (guitar) contacts Horacio Carrizo (bass), who joined the structure also made up by vocals and drums. After some shows, the first desertion takes place, which forces them to start a long search for a drummer, and in May of 1999, Sergio Vazquez (former Vehemencia and Manifiesto) arrives, and he had to adapt to the addition of sequenced keyboards.
After a few more shows, the band loses the vocalist, what implies the end of the music style developed by the band so far. After some more time, the remaining band members decide to start a new project, where all of their musical tastes would be involved, and they began looking for a vocalist to join the project while starting the composition of the new songs -which lyrics would focus on social, real subjects, not fictitious (as usual in the genre). Orchestral arrangements, fast and slow harmonious melodies, and a vocal choir are added to the double-bass drumming, distorted guitars, and progressive-like sections. This results in the songs going through different atmospheres, which constitutes a characteristic of the band. After a long time auditioning many vocalists, in June 2003, Alejandro Fernandez (former Magiar) joins the band for recording only, at first, but later decides to join the project, taking part also in the songwriting. "...In the Arms of Decadence", their first long play album, is released in September 2007 in Argentina, and in October 2007 in Japan.
