Not sure if I'd label this intermediate because while some of the tricks may seem intermediate they aren't really. Metal guitar gets heavily into Modal Scales as well as heavy arpeggiated riffs which aren't discussed here.
What Mark DOES do is explain things like how to get a heavy tone by how to set up your amps as well as your stomp box settings. Then he explains some of the things Metal guitarists use such as pull offs, hammer-ons as well as scale use. The material is graduated to a point where you are playing the very song that plays through while the DVD is parked at the Menu. It's not a bad tune but nothing all that intermediate.
If you're an intermediate player, you may want to pass on this however if you're a beginner and you've been wanting to learn how to jam with some of the big boys, this DVD will give you a step in the right direction. If you learn the song on here, you can pick it apart in pieces & use them to comp with others in a garage band.
Overall I give this DVD 4 out of 5 stars due to it being an excellent beginner starting point but not quite intermediate (in MY opinion - your mileage may vary).
