2005 issued 2 DVD + Bonus CD deluxe box set. The entire DVD set includes more than 340 minutes of audio and video material, while the CD has over 75 minutes of the band's concert at Java Island in the Netherlands, 2005. Their album "The Silent Force" is an exhilarating listen - a monument of opulent melodies, sweeping orchestral elements and tremendous power. Like their European counterparts Nightwish and Opeth, they have intertwined an otherworldly sound with a slow, brewing power that is like a classical symphony of old. The band was formed in 1996 by guitarist Robert Westerholt and singer Sharon den Adel. Their single "Ice Queen" reached number 1 on both the Nederlandse and Belgian charts in 2002. Their "Mother Earth" album went platinum in the Netherlands and gold in Belgium. Fans of Nightwish, Lacuna Coil 7, Evanescence will want to investigate their sound.

First I noticed some scratches inside the case, suggesting that the item was not new and that it was refurbished. Quite annoying, but I will not return it because of that.
The first DVD seems to be a combination of 3 concerts: Netherlands,Finland and Belgium, but in reality only the first one is a full length performance, while the rest contain about 3 songs each.
The main issue I have is that the picture and sound quality is not good for the concert in Netherlands. It is even more striking when you compare it to the other two which look and sound clearer with a more professional shooting method.
What saves the whole package from a 2 star rating is the bonus content on the second DVD in terms of "behind the scene" and "making of" as well as the "videos". These additions make it worthwhile for any WT fan out there.
I do not regret my purchase, just disappointed at the video and sound quality of the main concert.
better on a stereo setting in both of my WITHIN TEMPTATION videos (one Blu-ray, one DVD). Don't know if it is my equipment or the recordings. All sound settings sound great, though. The video is a recording of a concert, so it is not like a music video.
The group's performance is still captivating.
The disc is PAL encoded so if you only have an NTSC machine you will not be able to use it.
Can't wait until my MOTHER EARTH concert DVD arrives.
I wrote a better review before but Amazon did not like my ****s.
I would give it an 8.5 out of 10!
