Deluxe CD/DVD edition of this 2008 album includes a bonus DVD that contains three live performances from Alcatraz plus the 'More Than Meets The Eye' video. Few bands have the capability to survive lineup changes, health crises and 25 years of rapidly changing musical tastes, only to come out stronger than ever. Testament are one of the only remaining legends of the Thrash scene and arguably one of the few who have grown whilst still maintaining the substance and integrity for which they are known. In the almost two years since TFOD's release, the band have toured continuously (most notably with Judas Priest), charted higher than ever before, defied expectations and truly proven themselves as the real deal.

This is, for the record, the third copy of TFOD Tour Edition I have owned. I play it til it dies and buy another. Support the bands you enjoy, it's a brutal industry.
In this package, you get the audio CD of TFoD, an impressive hardcover Digi-Book with liner notes and glossy band photos, and a bonus DVD, which includes a 20-minute "making of" TFoD documentary. The DVD also has a photo gallery of the band during TFoD publicity shoots, and the entire album again, but with an onscreen song menu, and scrolling lyrics while a tune is playing. Perfect for your next Testament karaoke party...
The documentary is essentially raw studio footage taken with a Handycam, edited without narrative or interviews. If you're new to the band, you might not get much out of it. But if you're a fan, some of the in-studio clips are great: Alex Skolnick playing his solo over "The Evil Has Landed"; Paul Bostaph isolated in the booth pounding his double-kick drum setup; and Eric Peterson's flying fingers on the opening riff of "The Persecuted Won't Forget."
Is it worth an extra $14 for the DVD and Digi-Book? I think so. TFoD will arguably end up an all-time thrash record, and this is a peek inside how it was made, with a deluxe package to boot.
Here's the answer, buy all three like I did this summer/fall and enjoy!!
