June 11th, 2011, was a landmark date in Empyrium's history. After more than 15 years, Schwadorf and Helm played their very first show ever on that day, taking place at the Wave Gotik Treffen in the Pantheon of Volkspalast Leipzig. The show, which lasted about 70 minutes, was captured in sound and vision to be released now as a BluRay/DVD.
This magical world premiere, recorded in high-resolution HD video and stereo, respectively 5.1 surround sound, constitutes the heart of "Into The Pantheon". In addition to the concert, a documentary of more than 100 minutes provides a detailed and exhaustive account on the band's past by means of interviews with Schwadorf, Helm and the live musicians.
