Discuss some quality metal DVD's and such. Some good ones that I own..

Opeth: Lamentations - I won't say too much about this one, because I'm sure most Opeth fans have already seen it. Opeth in all their glory. A truly great performance. Also contains an hour-long look at the making of Deliverance/Damnation with interviews from all 5 bands members.

Death: Live in LA (Death & Raw) - Watching Chuck play live is truly a sight to behold. I must admit I'm not a huge fan of Death, but after watching him play this set I was completely blown away. Highly recommended viewing for any death metal fan.

Amon Amarth: Wrath of the Norsemen - 3 seperate performances. Over 70 songs. Over 7 hours worth of total material. They play songs from every album up to Fate of Norns. Quality stuff here and can't beat the value.

Arcturus: Shipwrecked in Oslo - Filmed shortly after, sadly, their last album Sideshow Symphonies was released. Very enjoyable/quality production on this one from an extremely unique band. Arcturus play at least one song from each album. Also cool to watch Hellhammer performing live and freaking Vortex on vocals. This guy needs to get the hell out of Dimmu Borgir and get his own band. He performs Garm's songs on here quite well, which is saying quite alot. Don't recall if there are any bonus features or interviews on this DVD though.

Solitude Aeturnus: Hour of Despair - One of my favorite doom bands, and since I know I will probably never have the chance to see these guys or Candlemass live, this was the next best thing. Recently released in 2007, Solitude plays multiple songs from every one of their albums, missing a few of their classics I would've liked to have seen, but everything this band does is gold. Solitude's stage presence is basically non-existent here, but I dont care, this is doom metal. Also, contains an excellent interview with John Perez and Robert Lowe. A must for doom fans!

The Curse of Candlemass - Released shortly after Candlemass's S/T album hit shelves. Consisting of Candlemass's best line-up imho, with Messiah on vocals. I believe this show was meant to be their farewell performance, although, that thankfully proved untrue. Each member here shines through giving 100%, especially Messiah who gives an awesome and especially energetic performance. They play a bunch of classics here. Although I would've liked to have seen Samirithian. Anyways, a great band giving a great performance. There's also some live cuts from 1987-1993 and an hour-long interview with the band, although I havent has a chance to watch these yet. A great DVD overall, essential for doom fans I think!

Anyways, discuss some quality vids and such you have seen.

Only one I have is Heaven and Hell at Radio City Music Hall, and it is amazing. Dio does NOT disappoint in the least, and neither do the rest of the band. Appice, Iommi, and Butler all serve up a heaping plate of kickass.
Nevermore, Opeth, and BTBAM are all coming out with DVD's soon though. Should all be great.

Iron Maiden-Early Days, Live After Death, Rock in Rio(Rio is my favorite)

I only have Gorgoroth's Black Mass 2004 DVD. If Gaahl's vocals weren't shit I'd love it because everyone else in the band is pretty good, specially their drummer. But no, Gaahl has to ruin everything with his horrid vocals.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

I didn't know metal bands released DVD's. What is this? But seriously...
You guys will hate me for this.

Metallica - S&M

It's really good. It made me like a few of the songs off load and reload that i didn't like. It didnt help me with Hero of the Day though. That's still arse.


Dream Theater - Score
Watch it.

Lamentations is a good set, made a little worse by Mike's wobbly vocals a couple of times. But most of the other stuff about it is good. The documentary in particular, shows the band in a very interesting light.

I have a few dvds but I'll talk about them another time

satyricon - roadkill extravaganza

Even if im not a big satyricon-fan i found this dvd to be quite entertaining.
#12
Strapping Young Lad - No Sleep 'till Bedtime.

Guitars overdubbed to hell, but amazing performance, energetic, funny, generally awesome. Absolute must. They don't have any material from Alien or later, but they do have Far Beyond Metal.

Bloodbath - The Wacken Carnage

Absolutely fricken' amazing. Mikael Akerfeldt, Dan Swano, Anders Nystrom, Jonas Renske and Martin Axenrot playing some of the best DM of the past 8 years.

Say no more

I've also got the DVD's that came with the re-releases of Carcass' Necroticism and Heartwork, no live performances but if you're a big fan they're essential.

Cannibal Corpse - Centuries Of Torment

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Dream Theater's Score is probs my top pick. Watching 6DoiT in it's entirely with an orchestra is truly a sight to behold.

Sepultura - Live in Barcelona is an absolutely killer show too, so much energy.

Devin Townsend - Safe Zone is nothing short of breathtaking too.

Last one I watched was Cathedral's 'Our God Has Landed'. That was pretty damn good I must say.

This. I haven't even seen the whole thing, but the select songs I watched on Youtube make it so that nothing can compare.

Also, in terms of Opeth, Lamentations is good, but I have a feeling The Roundhouse Tapes will be much better because of the setlist.

Its all you need, really.

Not that much of a fan of live dvds as such, but there are a few standouts.

Immolation - Bringing Down The World
Napalm Death - The dvd
Kreator - Live in East Berlin
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Black Symphony by Within Temptation, out September 22nd


Their own orchestra and choir, and pyros... Might be worth a look although I'm not interested in their music anymore since it gotten so damn poppy. Now only Nightwish need to do this.

Kamelot - One Cold Winter Night
Everygrey - A Night to Rememer
Iced Earth - Alive in Athens
Iron Maiden - Death on the Road
Therion - Celebrators of Becoming
Dream Theater - all of them

All worth watching.

I loved Iron Maiden's "Raising Hell" DVD. The combination of their awesome set and the magic/horror show was pretty sweet.

No way, avoid this at all costs unless you're a diehard Maiden fan. Bruce's worst performance with them, and the magic tricks were really corny, even for the early 90s. Blaze was a breath of fresh air back then.

My picks -
Iron Maiden - The Early Days, Live After Death, Rock In Rio (I wouldnt recommend Death on the Road because of Steve's crazy camera switching.....Rio is only just bearable), many bootleg DVDs are pretty good...
Judas Priest - Rising In The East

^ Rising In the East is phenomenal.
