AllMusic Review by

The Wacken Open Air Festival has become a heavy metal institution, transforming the small German town of Wacken into a metal mecca for tens of thousands of people. Capturing the energy of this wild festival, Live at Wacken 2012 gives listeners a chance to check out the storied event's 23rd offering. Featuring metal stalwarts like Saxon, Suffocated, Testament, and Overkill (who somehow manage to keep getting better and better), this live compilation is a perfect encapsulation of the event for both those who couldn't make it to the show, and those brave metal explorers who made the trek and want a reminder of the dizzying array of metal giants who took the stage that year.
