Some videos really stand out above them all, and it is obvious that some are indeed classics. Some of the classics from this include: Morbid Angel's 1989 video for "Eternal Rites," Carcass' 1993 video for "No Love Lost," Pungent Stench's 1993 video for "Viva Las Muertes," among others.
My top 5 favorite videos from disc 1 (no order) are:
1. Sonata Arctica "Wolf and Raven"
2. Dimmu Borgir "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse"
3. Helloween "Just A Little Sign"
4. Stratovarius "Eagleheart"
5. Cradle of Filth "Her Ghost In The Fog"
My top 5 favorite videos from disc 2 (no order) are:
1. Thunderstone "Virus"
2. Rhapsody "Power of The Dragonflame"
3. Carcass "No Love Lost"
4. Mnemic "Ghost"
5. Gathering "Leaves"
Ultimately, I'd highly recommend it to any fan of metal DVD comps, this is the top of the game.
IN FLAMES, MNEMIC and this series I would have missed out on alot of GREAT METAL, real METAL!! No SLIPKNOT, No KORN, No MUDVAYNE!!!
GET ANY OF THE 4 VOLUMNS NOW!!! YOU WILL NOT BE LET DOWN..AND NUCLEAR BLAST (Century Media) IS HE BEST METAL LABEL ON THE PLANET!
Many of the "videos" are actually live performances that are not listed as such: Dimmu Borgir's "Puritania" (live show with studio track overdubbed), "Leaves" by The Gathering, and Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills" to name a few.
The vast majority of the bands on here are completely unknown to me, and for the most part did not win me over to their music. One band, THERION, really stuck out, though, with their video for "Summernight City". The video was strange and unique, and the song was very bizarre yet very original with some authentic operatic female vocals over the heavy music.
Speaking of operatic vocals, the once great Theatre of Tragedy is represented here by the song "Let You Down", which actually WAS a letdown. It's a borderline dance song which sees them dropping their metal influences entirely for a sound akin to--say--Ace of Base. At any rate, it isn't metal and I'm not sure why it's included.
Also in the "should've packed it in years ago" department is Paradise Lost from their "let's copy Metallica by cutting our hair and writing pop crap" phase with "Say Just Words".Read more ›
