I wasn’t able to travel to their back-to-back shows way back when, so I didn’t want to miss the opportunity in Germany to see them play their second album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 live and in its entirety.
The title image was one of a series I posted from the concert, the band isn’t visible but luckily it was picked up by their social media team and shared on their social profiles like Twitter and Facebook.
