Chevelle: Live From The Norva [DVD]
Released: October 14, 2003
This DVD is awesome, it really gives a good idea of what the atmosphere of the concert may be like. They provide a good solid performance, hopefully the next DVD they make will have the same energy as this one.

Sound: First off, I am a very big fan of Chevelle, so I was really excited when this live DVD came out. The trio of brothers sound great live. Because of the nature of Pete's guitar riffs on the album, the concert's sound quality was somewhat hollowed compared to their previous albums. The vocals were on key, and everybody did a great job performing, but there were some parts in "Forfeit" and "An Evening With El Diablo" that seemed a little subpar. Pete did throw in a little augmentation into some of their songs, like an ending solo on "An Evening..." // 8

Overall Impression: I thought the DVD overall was not needed. Nothing outstanding happened. Chevelle came back for an encore, which was planned, because the audience really wasn't cheering for an encore. Most of the members of the band stood around the entire set, which was pretty boring. The sound was great, and the vocals were surprisingly great, except the background vocals which definitely needed work. The highlight track was definitely "Closure", but their first album material was very nicely done as well. There just weren't enough features or material to make this DVD anything worth watching. I bought the DVD and only watched it twice - it's nothing special. // 6
