1.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype, 4 Dec. 2005
In short bad !
I know Korn (seen them, met them) and have done for some time - well at leat through their music.
Although I knew the DVD was unauthorised and so no Korn music I still expected some Korn goodies, however I was very disapointed.
Not only were some of the most well know facts missing or incorrect, but the general feel of the documentry was half harted at best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take off your hat and get ready to sweat !, 4 Dec. 2005
This review is from: Elegies [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Machine Head – Elegies
If you’ve even seen Machine Head perform live then the quality and quantity of this DVD will come as no surprise, if you haven’t seen them live yet then this DVD will show you see exactly what you’ve been missing all this time.
Machine Head have starked around in the dark outer reaches of the Metal world for over 10 years, regularly stepping into the lime light to claim new members to their own dark cult, training them in the ancient art of thrash & head banging.
However after many years dominating the out skirts of metal and with over 1.7 million in world-wide sales under their belt, Machine Head have returned to claim their rightful succession to the throne.
A DVD full of live, full throttle extremes from both the band and audience alike, with superbly typically over excellent performed set list that is so Machine Head at their very best.
But wait that’s not all the DVD also has a generous amount of behind the scenes footage as well as their past video releases. So in short if you like or love Machine Head buy this DVD, however if you have not yet tasted the sweet nectar that is Machine Head, then you should very definitely buy this DVD.
Rock your socks and shoes off !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Live and Loud, 23 Nov. 2005
This review is from: 9.0: Live (Audio CD)
An album of greats from start to finish, without a doubt !
Live albums seldom go down well with the punters as they fail to capture the energy and heat of a live performance, however as with every other aspect of Slipknot they fly in the face of normalcy and release truly live album and managing to capture what is normally lost during recording – personality.
Take a stage, stick together nine different men, slap on a thick layer of alter egos, add personalities that cut then stick them in front of thousands of screaming fans and you have Slipknot doing what they love to do and that is perform.
The album captures the very essence of their live performance, packed to busting with their most infamous hits and long enough to make the listener feel the burn and believes they are really there.
The air is thick and heavy, yet through the whole of this album the energy flows through it, listen to this with the volume up and the lights out and your there, in the eye of the Slipknot storm.
Metal fans buy this one now, you’ll won’t regret it…..

5.0 out of 5 stars Cradle of Brilliance, 13 Oct. 2004
This review is from: Nymphetamine (Audio CD)
The latest release from Cradle of Filth is upon us, not unlike the preverbal beast stalking its helpless prey. The new album is just that, new and much harder than previous releases but with all the usual bravado and skill that is lifting COF up and out of the underground within sight of the mainstream.
The new album kicks off with a short but poignant mini-track that sets mood and scene for this epic of big sounds, hard riffs and contrasting vocals from Danni Filth and the Italian devour Liv Kristine. The tracks are all distinctively COF however with the huge almost operatically sound you could almost be fooled into thinking that you were listening to something else.
Unlike some of their earlier works this latest release flows from start to finish and although each track is distinctly different, the artistic flow is deeply apparent and works extremely well all the way through the album.
Most of the tracks are of significant length (up to nearly 10 minutes for some), but COF have never shied away from allowing the expression of their creativity to over rule the industrial standards of 3 ½ minute tracks. With track names listings such as Gilded Cunt and Coffin Fodder, COF show that they certainly still have a flair for stirring up a storm of controversy.
The final track which is, insodently also featured on the film "Resident Evil - Apocalypse, features the incandescent Ms Kristine, former member of Theatre of Tragedy and her cool, crisp vocals contrast beautifully with Filth's rips and screams.
All in all probably one of COF best peaces of work so far, although some of the old school COF fans may not approve, but will I am sure, find it hard to resists this latest offering from Mr Filth and his boys.
