5.0 out of 5 stars Mirror like polish!, December 8, 2009
This review is from: Emperor: Live at Wacken Open Air 2006 (DVD)
I am writing this to counter another reviewer who seems to have looked a little too deeply into the directing approach of this DVD. By no means did the director do a bad job. This fellow review just seems to disagree on a personal level about it, commenting on shirts and sexual preferences (really, dude?) I also have a keen eye for directing and found that the approach taken did not remove anything from the shear greatness of the performance made by Emperor. It's shot crystal clear in 16:9 with cameras on booms, cameras on wheels, cameras flying through the air, cameras EVERYWHERE. I feel the director did a wonderful job capturing this performance as a whole and the production is razor sharp. The sound that go's along is earth shattering. Levels are spot on and leave no desire to remaster your EQ. I must say it sounds better then the original recordings. For $11.50 there is NO WAY an Emperor fan should pass this up. I would pay $30 for this if I had to.

The bonus track is a little over an hour of DV cam recordings of shows and the sound quality compared to the Wacken show will have you fast forwarding a bit, but be sure not to pass the Trym cam that shows him whaling live for about 3-4mins straight. After the live shows Ihsahn and Samoth belt out a few bars of a few songs. It runs for about 5-7mins You can see side by side how smoothly they blend opposite scales into one harmonic, wonderful Emperor sound. There is also a small booklet in closed with full page live shots from the show. I don't know how someone could bash all this for $11.50. For shame!

Sounds a bit like the Van Halen dvd that I bought for 12 bucks where the person from the New York Bitch Committee filmed Van Halen on the tour last year but missed almost the entire drum solo done by Alex Van Halen and then also filmed the rafters which needless to say makes it a very bad bootleg copy of the concert.

Uhh, no it doesn't sound like that at all. This DVD is of amazing quality that leaves NOTHING to be desired.
