`(sic)nesses,' is a pretty great package, documenting their 2009 headline performance at the UK's Download Festival in front of 80,000 excited fans. Also included is a documentary (curiously on disc one, with the concert on disc 2) from Shawn `Clown,' Crahan and all the music videos from the band's `All Hope Is Gone,' album cycle.
Performance wise, everything you expect to happen at a Slipknot concert is there, so don't expect to be disappointed in that regard. One can expect to see people hanging off things, jumping off things and throwing things at regular intervals; in addition to a spinning in mid air drum kit, Different band members fretting the notes for the guitarists, different band members hitting a keg with a baseball bat, Clown and Criss's strap-on marching drums during `The Blister Exists,' and `Psycho Social,' and of course Sid getting into the midst of everything, including the crowd whenever possible.
Without a doubt the entire concert is made on the strength of the crowds passionate reaction and that undefinable live energy that just makes the concert feel amazing. Seeing 80,000 plus people singing along to very heavy music is almost life affirming.
If you were disappointed by the band's live performances on their live album `9.0 Live,' or the bonus live material from `Voliminal,' specifically the mix, Corey's vocals and the disjointed feeling caused from material being taken from various concerts and are unsure whether or not to buy `(sic)nesses,' then I'd like to reassure you that it is of a much higher quality than the previously mentioned releases, the whole concert is much more impressive and intense, Corey's vocal performance is noticeably stronger and the mix is a lot more suitable.
The audiovisual quality of the release is in absolutely no question, the tech crew behind it have done an absolutely sterling job recording, mixing, filming and editing it and the whole viewing experience is of as high a quality as you would expect from a band of Slipknot's size, even considering that this was a festival performance which is where a lot of big bands release their weaker DVDs due to the reduced amount of control available. Put simply this DVD looks and sounds fantastic, better even than you'd expect.
The only negative things I have to say are mere nitpicking, such as a perceived shortage of material from the `Iowa,' album and that the documentary is very much in the Shaun Crahan style (as seen on the main Voliminal film and the All Hope is Gone bonus DVD) which I don't personally care for but of course, you could indeed love this style. These minor and circumstantial niggles do nothing to detract from the sheer quality of the release. It may sound cheesy, but `(sic)nesses,' proves why people love Slipknot so much.
Singing along to the intro of duality sent shivers down my spine then, and now I can relive that moment, everytime I watch this DVD. Of course, this is Paul Gray's last festival performed at the UK and what a fitting tribute it is to his early death.. R.I.P Paul
For every fan out there, if you don't own this DVD then you truely cannot call yourself a maggot...
Buy it now from Amazon, put it in the DVD player, sing as loud as you can and feel the elecric atmosphere of that night
If you are a slipknot fan there is zero excuse for not having this concert, its pure epic. No messing around, just amazing songs and relentless madness for all you maggots. Warning, your neck will hurt a lot after watching this.
Add to basket!
Hearing my children often mentioning the group, and seeing a poster on one of my kid's walls of the group masked up, led me to this.
Very good, oh yes.....Exciting even. What a brilliant visual spectacle. Surprisingly good musicianship as well.
