About Black Mass Krakow 2004

  • Year Released:

Black Mass Krakow 2004 is a live concert DVD by Norwegian black metal band, Gorgoroth. It was released on June 9 in Europe and on July 8 in the US. The DVD features the band's controversial 2004 concert that was filmed in a TV studio in Kraków, Poland. The DVD also features live footage from the Full Force Festival Leipzig 2000, a band biography, discography and photo gallery, desktop images, and web links, and is also compatible with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. The concert featured sheep heads on stakes, "crucified" nude models, Satanic symbols, and eighty litres of sheep blood. The band came under fire for violating Polish anti-blasphemy laws as well as Polish animal rights laws. A police investigation took place with allegations of religious offence (which is prosecutable under Polish law) and cruelty to animals. Though these charges were considered, the band was not charged as it was ruled that they were unaware of the fact that what they were doing was illegal, although the concert organiser was eventually fined 10000zł in 2007 as he knew about it and neither informed the band that it was against the law nor intervened. The whole controversy led to the band being dropped
