What would we do without Metal Mind Productions?
This label from Poland has released over 60 dvd titles and is now producing and recording many Prog-Rock bands to DVD. In 2009 we see a rage of British bands go to Poland and record their concert.
Galahad, Final Contact, Credo, Pendragon, Shadowland and Overhead,Deeexpus and now the German band RPWL with The RPWL LIVE Experience DVD, all recorded and filmed at The Wyspianski Theatre in Katowice Poland.
This theatre is turning into a genuine Metal Mind Records Prog Temple.

With this recording you get a great concert with beautiful lights and a great band

As listed above only three songs from their latest album in witch This is not a Prog song is the worst song of that album. But it has a statement.RPWL is a band that not will be judged or put in a corner
Lyrics are full criticism on social and political subjects and about prejudice.

Eventually the result is one of the best concerts released in 2009 with great craftmanship on recording (lights and camera) and performence of the band.
All progsongs are as you know them from the albums except This Is Not a Prog Song (with extra introduction of the band and great Bass, Guitar, and Keyboards-solo's)and Biding Time which is the first encore and is great blues-jamming song.


The concert proves that they are an outstanding band that won't be put in a corner
Breath in and Breath out and run to the shop for this one. Highly recomended
