5.0 out of 5 stars Metal is Forever....and here`s the proof., 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the age of 55,i`m now re-embracing a lot of the bands I used to love over 30 years ago.having been out of the loop with a lot of Metal over the years,only now am I rediscovering the joys of it-as you can tell,it`s taken me 6 years to even know this dvd existed.ok,here we go...a nicely put together 2 disc box set,the documentary is very good,especially the behind the scenes stuff..the bands-Anthrax--i used to be a huge fan but as with lots of things in life,times/tastes change-not always for the better.a storming set,some of their best songs,the band having a great time and the audience giving them the kudos they deserved-10/10...Megadeth--easily the best band on the day and-in my opinion-should have been the headliners-10/10...Slayer-I love Slayer,always have done but here,they seem tired and playing during the day takes away a lot from them-6/10...Metallica-good but not great,too reliant on Hetfield`s crowd rabble rousing,a different setlist would have been better-6/10....quite why Metallica got 2 hours yet the other 3 only got an hour apiece is frankly a crime....all in all,if you love your Metal,buy it,you won`t be let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unleashed in Germany., 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A stunning return to form for the Priest after the brilliant-but vocally patchy Epitaph....Rob seems to have been reborn over the past 3 years.his demeanour,stance,moves,vocals all have gone up a notch and he appears to be really enjoying himself....the whole band is on fire,a great set/song list...can`t fault it visually/musically but.......a rather staid Wacken audience does not help,a few more songs from Redeemer of Souls would have been nice also I could do without Rob`s Freddie Mercury sing-a-long-with-me skit......and only a 93 minute set.............minor quibbles aside,one of THE best live Priest dvd recordings.....great to hear Jawbreaker/Devils Child as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbent.....Unbowed.....Unbroken., 18 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
my dvd box set arrived sunday at 4pm meaning I could start the season a full day before it was in the shops-nice job Amazon....box/discs/packaging all in mint condition-just how I like it...now,on with the show...after seeing a few negative reviews on here I was a little worried that the quality of the storytelling may have taken a dip-no idea why anyone could think this ?.a superb season from start to gut wrenching finish,certainly one of the best and leaving many unanswered questions.......roll on season 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fight For The Future., 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dystopia (Audio CD)
a stunning return to form.superbly produced-vocals,guitar,bass,drums-all sound loud/in your face.some of the lyrics are very politically overt-obviously mirroring Mustaine`s paranoia/fears/xenophobia for modern day America but...luckily-it`s not veered into Donald Trump territory as of yet.as a Christian,he knows which side he is on and that his "God" will sort them out.....lets hope the next album is as good as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars By Your Command....................., 2 Feb. 2016
when i saw this was being rebooted/remade,i was sceptical.after all the original was camp,frothy,silly and not to be taken seriously.when it started here in the .U.K.in 2004 on Sky,it took one episode and i was hooked.dark,militaristic,humourless,grey,no funny robots or children to spoil it and unrepentantly bleak....what was not to love ?..the writing was superb,the visual effects-for a tv show-were outstanding,some great characters/situations...possibly one of THE best tv shows ever...the box set has it all including the mini series plus Razor which is vital to watch.only the webisodes-which became Blood and Chrome are missing,i can live with that.some excellent behind the scenes stuff/deleted scenes etc etc...all in all,a superb box set.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Luddites Are Revolting., 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Astonishing (Audio CD)
What IS Astonishing is that i actually managed to get through all of this in one go without "hearing" most of what was going on..sadly-like my friend pointed out-it`s like 2112 on acid...i`m a big DT fan but this is far too long,overly complex,pretentious,both lyrically naive` and trite at the same time,cliched and worst of all-dull..far too much piano,orchestration.where are the Rock/Metal guitar stylings that John Petrucci is known for ?.you can`t fault the musicianship/playing but when it results in something akin to wallpaper muzak,you really have to ask-what were you thinking ?...i`m glad now i decided NOT to go to the London shows they are playing this in it`s entirety

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal Is Forever., 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as someone who used to love all this type of music-i was the first person back in 1984 to take Metallica`s "Ride The Lightning" album to our local Rock club,i bought everything.as with lots of things times/tastes change..happily about 3 years ago-i`m now 55-i got back into all that music i loved so this dvd was a must buy.let us start at the beginning...Anthrax-Joey Belladonna was often considered-not by me-the weak link due to his voice,having watched this dvd set 5 times now,i have to disagree.for me the whole band were superb,Joey`s voice was top notch and the played some of their best songs...10/10.....Megadeth-simply superb-should have closed the show...10/10.....Slayer-good but nothing special,maybe i`ve seen them too many times...6/10.....Metallica-very good but as with Slayer,should have been so much better...7/10....sound/picture quality on the dvds was outstanding-no complaints,the 45 minute documentary is really good...a must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soul-Less., 20 Oct. 2015
This review is from: The Book Of Souls (Audio CD)
after A Matter Of Life And Death in which the band turned into Dream Theater,quite frankly i was ready to call it a day.thankfully The Final Frontier went some way to appease me but this album is pretty poor.why they had to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out those songs over 2 discs is unknown,a single 75 minute album with 9-12 songs on would have been great...
