Great music with great extras,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forging The Land...(2dvd+2cd digi book box) (DVD)
Well, I went a bit mad -- the extra CDs aren't really a lot of use. (However, as I rarely watch videos, the CDs are actually what I listened to first.) I'd only heard "Am Universum" before this, from a period of the band's history that they now sound like they'd like to distance themselves. Shame! It still sounds great to me. The trail through the years in the DVD extras also made me add a few items to my wishlist from the preceding and succeeding albums.
The main event itself - well, I'm a big Marillion fan and their stage presence always comes across very well in live videos. Unfortunately, Amorphis don't seem to have the same impact on video that I imagine they do live. (I'm also not a great fan of either the rather "weak" mic effect used on the "natural" vocals nor the death grunt... It seems more pronounced when you're watching rather than just listening, too!)
Overall, I enjoyed listening to the music and the extras are great, with great interviews. Do ask yourself if you really need the DVD+CD package, though.
