Well, I can keep this review quite
short. This video kicks some major ass! Forgive me starting to
sound like a fucken' US redneck but I can't stop being in total
awe of this monster metal feast!
DEATH fans should already have this one in his/her collection,
but those who don't: go kill yourself you poser! Anyway take a
look at the track list, songs range from all the way back to the
cult "Scream Bloody Gore" days to the more sophisticated
work of the "The Sound Of Perseverance" album. The sound
quality is nearly perfect (the drums being very loud in the mix,
which honestly doesn't bother me since Richard Christy is one
fucking amazing octopus!): a dry as fuck drum sound, the trademark
crisp guitar sound and the bass nicely audible.
The image quality is pretty good (I've seen better), the filming
is quite sober. All in all this is a very honest and rewarding
72 minutes of one of the best metal bands out there...
