One of the guys from Stormtroopers of Death (I think it was Scott Ian) once said 'We're going to be the first generation thats tougher than our kids'. The performance on this DVD could be strong evidence for that theory.
Its true that many of the tracks are 'older' 'thrax staples, but they just illustrate how great a band they are. This stuff is still harder than contemporary metal. No need for show-boating, no need for make-up, just full on metal, non-stop.
Anthrax show their versatility within the metal genre. High-speed classics like Got the Time are balanced by power-ballady Safe Home. A great chance to enjoy the John Bush era too, since the band reforned the original lineup.
Nicely put together for a metal DVD. Lots of mixed angles with a couple of tracks including multi-angle shots (like the tracks on Cunning Stunts).
A mixed bunch of DVD extras. One mini-vid for each band member. Scott's is probably the only one of any real interest.
But you get all this AND a live CD too! Its reall annoying when you have a great live DVD but can't listen to the music outside your front room. The live CD in this set contains a slightlky different line up of tracks to the DVD. Some different songs, and some slightly edited versions of the DVD tracks (not the music, just some of the links are reduced).
A great package. Classic metal history that won't be embarassing in a few years time 'cos their clothes or hair aren't fashionable.
