case the DVD consists mostly of mostly Slipknot's concert in
London, England. The band goes through 15 songs, including one
song that has never been heard before. Before the concert we are
treated to Slipknot getting ready before taking the stage, such
as putting on on their masks and applying make-up. The entire
concert is over an hour and a half long. The beauty of this
footage is that each band member has a head-cam attached to
them, as well as an additional 21 cameras recording their
performance. Throughout the concert there are rapid cuts at
precise times to capture all the fury of this army of a band. I
have never seen them live, but I always wanted to. This DVD
stresses why Slipknot must be seen live in concert.
there are 30 cameras all set up to record their performance, the
quality varies. The main cameras set up are of movie quality and
look spectacular, but otherwise don't expect the quality of,
let's say, Star
Wars: Episode 2 - Attack of the Clones.
is presented in Stereo and 5.1 surround sound. I was very
pleased to hear all the madness come through my surround sound
speakers. The sound, which is extremely important on a DVD like
this, passes the test.
The DVD is
two discs. The first disc has your normal set-ups for audio and
disc has all their videos. There are 5 in total with "Left
Behind" being the best as far as quality goes. There is also an
animated version of "Wait and Bleed". This video is all in
claymation in the kind of style as the old TOOL videos. My
favorite is "Spit It Out," which is a nice spoof of "The
part to the 2nd disc are the different camera angles on two
songs, "The Heretic" and "New Abortion". This feature is so much
fun to toy around with considering there are 9 guys in the
band. You have the option of switching to any one of the nine
between the song using your angle button, which I found
love this band then this DVD is a must. I didn't even know the
DVD was coming out until I went over to my local store. They
don't have any other official DVDs like this one. I finally got
my wish of watching Slipknot in concert. Slipknot thrash around
on stage without getting my butt handed to me in the mosh pit.
this DVD only makes me want to see these guys live even more.
The fast pace of the concert and the editing of all the cameras
is really a visual and musical dream for any other heavy metal
fans out there. Enjoy the DVD!!!
