Ok, not really, since I won't be spending the entire weekend watching my newest acquisitions, but it was the best title I came up with... Anywho, my music DVD collection has just grown larger, thanks to not one, but two new discs! The first was the final piece in my (now) complete Dark Funeral discography.
Yup, that's right, I'm speaking of Attera Orbis Terrarum Part 1!!! (part 2 is coming out this year) This is a rather special release because black metal bands are not exactly known for their dvd's, in fact they rarely release one, so to be able to have an official live record of one of my favourite bands is truly great!
Unfortunately, as I was already expecting, my two favourite tracks, "In the Sign of the Horns " and "Thy Legions Come", are not on the tracklist, but they're the only ones missing, for all the other great tracks are there.
Secrets of the Black Arts
Ravenna Strigoi Mortii
The second is Mastodon's The Workhorse Chronicles, a truly great release featuring tons of content, from the usual concert footage to detailed interviews with the band and that sort of extras. About the live performance, in this gig they played practically every song that matters from their first EP (Lifesblood), compilation album (Call of the Mastodon) and both first and second full-lenght cd's (Remission and Leviathan).
Blood and Thunder
(not from the dvd, couldn't find it on youtube)
Expect fucking brilliant songs then, like Blood and Thunder, shown above, or Hearts Alive, shown below. This one, like the last Iron Maiden song I've posted, is also rated FE (for Fucking Epic)! Really, I'm not kidding, you owe to yourself to watch this, so be sure to play the youtube video that follows:
Have you finished watching it? Good, otherwise you've just missed one of the best songs EVAH!!!
Now I can't wait for another Mastodon DVD, because their last album (released after this dvd) is just utterly brilliant, great, AMAZING!!! It lacks something as epic as Hearts Alive, but other than that it's better than all their previous releases put together. Yup, it's that good! In fact it's so good that I think I'm going to make a post just about it! Expect it soon...
