Despite existing only for a brief period during the early 70s and being largely obscure throughout that period, it's undoubtable that Comus was one of the most interesting bands to emerge from the folk-prog scene. It could be said that they're a far more deranged and experimental version of Jethro Tull, although to say this wouldn't quite do them justice. Their songs often go from beautiful mellow passages to strange, tribal chanting, their lyrics often being brutal and graphic (just look at "Drip Drip" from their debut album!). Live recording in Tokyo 2012.
The DVD titled “Rapture” was recorded in 2011, when Arena visited Poland as part of the tour promoting their new release “The Seventh Degree of Separation”. The album opened a new chapter in the history of the band led since 1995 by two acclaimed musicians: Clive Nolan (Pendragon, Caamora, Shadowland) and Mick Pointer (ex-Marillion). The album was recorded with a new singer, Paul Manzi (Oliver Wakeman Band), the bassist John Jowitt, who returned to the band’s line-up after a several year break, and the guitarist John Mitchell. Filmed in 2011 at Wyspiański Theatre in Katowice, Poland, the DVD features a wide cross-section of Arena’s music, with material ranging from the tracks from the band’s very first release (including The Visitor, Solomon, Crying For Help VII, Ascension) up to their latest songs (The Great Escape, The Seventh Degree Of Separation, Rapture, One Last Au Renoir, The Ghost Walks, What If?, Burning Down).

For years, the easy point of comparison for Muse and their brand of driving rock was Radiohead, but as the trio has grown, it became clearer and clearer that the sound they were really striving for was something akin to the pure spectacle of Queen. To their credit, Muse have done a fine job of growing into their ambitions, and even though studio albums like The Resistance really show off their more theatrical qualities, the enormity of their sound is best captured in the live setting. With Live at Rome Olympic Stadium, the British band does just that, bringing its massive…
