The 20 Years Of Brazen Abbot is an anniversary package containing a CD and a DVD. The release celebrates two decades of the bands existence, since it was founded by the Bulgarian multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Nikolo Kotzev.

The Live DVD was shot at a concert at the Amphitheatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The DVD also contains 15 songs. True to his philosophy, Kotzev has not tempered with the live recording in post production, so there are no studio overdubs on this live production.
