Black Label Society, is the brainchild of guitar great Zakk Wylde. Having graced the world s stages for the
last 20 years, both as Ozzy Osborne s right hand man and fronting BLS, Zakk Wylde has established himself as one of the few remaining guitar heroes. European

contains the full Paris show as well as extensive bonus features. Originally a 2 disc DVD it is now presented in superb picture and sound quality on a single disc Blu-ray.

This is such an amazing concert, but the video gimmicks are INSUFFERABLE. Fortunately Black Label Society puts on such an top-notch performance I can't remove any stars; it's not their fault their DVD was produced by tasteless egomaniacs. It is really incessant, never ever ever lets up. You can't get through two seconds without some stupid video gimmick getting in the way of what is otherwise a truly stellar concert. I have finally switched off the video and am just letting the music play. I guess you just had to be there to experience BLS in their purity; the rest of us have to suffer through some pissant video editor's personal ego-trip. do they think they're improving on the show? Don't they know the band has already prepared a show? Don't they know their JOB?!?! If I want to see a bunch of animation, I'll get a Disney movie. DOWN WITH ANNOYING CONCERT VIDEO EFFECTS!!! Just let them play!!! Morons.

The music, especially some of the longer jams during the performances were top notch. BLS is one of those bands that seems to take music to a different level. From his start with Ozzy as young man to developing into the Juggernaut that he is now one of the most prolific performers able to push his stamp on music further and further. Quite a few other bands could take a lesson from Zack. From his full frontal assault to more melodic acoustic Zack has been a staple in my listening for years now.

As for the video, well, there are some flaws. As mentioned in other reviews the sophomoric effects reminded me of something you would see in a late 60's to early 70's video. Tacky. Personally I would rather see the video without, but it is what it is. Amen. Much better to just turn the tv off and let it rip through the speakers.

I only paid $3 (yup!) from FYE. So not complaining. A must for any BLS or Zack fan.

Not sure why the producers, editors, or whoever feel compelled to use these irritating visual effect in concert vids. It's painfully annoying and you never get the sense you're watching a concert. It's like watching a cheesy video on Mtelevision. The audio is ok but far from great. The extras and London show are nice.

Zakk Wylde is an easy target for anyone who wants to criticize the heavy metal/hard rock guitar stereotype. But the guy is obviously for real - he's no stereotype, he's an archetype, and for anyone who appreciates pull-out-all-the-stops rock guitar, he is the complete package. This DVD is the single best produced hard rock concert video I've seen. The band manages to be raw and polished at the same time - not an easy trick. This is an improvement over "Boozed Broozed & Broken Boned" in every way - and that was a glorious sonic assault.

Zakk has obviously paid attention to his critics and has made a few changes without selling out at all. He relies far less on pinch harmonics in his guitar work, he's toned down the stage profanity which was previously far overdone, the band is tight and well rehearsed, the audience participation is used to best possible effect, the set list draws on his strongest Black Label Society material, and he's even increased his already-exceptional prowess on his instrument. The acrobat has a few new stunts!

The "intro jam" sets the tone well, opening with the band attacking their instruments, and they don't let up. It's not until the first pause comes in "Been A Long Time" that you realize just how much noise you've been exposed to so far. When this band takes a pause for a beat, it's the most solid proof yet that the note with the most impact is not a note at all - it's silence: the pause. The "Iron Man Interlude" is really just the first few bars of the Sabbath song. It would really be something if Black Label Society took the Dream Theater route and recreated an entire Sabbath album - or just did a set of covers. I'd plop down god money for that.

In This River slows things down a bit and gives Zakk a softer texture to play over.

In some of my other music DVD reviews, I take the tact of applying a set of standards to a release and establishing how the DVD in question measures up. Let me say in advance that when I take this tact, it usually means that I was disappointed in the release. Such is the case with Black Label Society: The European Invasion - Doom Troopin' Live.

A memo should go out to all bands and music DVD producers that says at minimum: "1) Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards. 2) The musical performances within should represent the talent that made the studio recorded CDs sell. 3) Theatrics are very cool too, as long as you can pull them off without deterioration in the quality of the music."

Let's break it down then for Doom Troopin':

1 - "Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards." - The picture quality in Doom Troopin' is average. Look, I understand that it's more expensive for the band to record in high def, but Doom Troopin' looked like it was recorded in the '80s. The picture just wasn't up to the standards set by some of the better releases of the past few years (click on my name above to see my Listmania List of The Best Rock DVDs With High Quality A/V).

Further contributing to a below average experience, the director has chosen to indulge in what he feels is "cool production" versus giving the viewer a front row seat to the performance. There are a lot split screens and funky video effects (you know, like image stretching and goofy '70s-like animated image overlays). This kind of junk really ruins the illusion of having a front row seat to the show.

The sound is okay. You get your choice between Dolby Stereo, Dolby 5.1 or DTS. But the mix is way below average.
