First DVD by the legendary American Thrash Metal Band.
Recorded at Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, California, on December 7, 2001, it is the band's second video album.
This must be what fans have been waiting for and undoubtedly rekindles the fires of their past live offerings. The main attraction of this DVD is yet another bold and terrifyingly energetic performance from the band, which is just what fans would expect. Included also is a rather hilarious 50 minute documentary, full of stupid fans doing stupid stuff, a video for the “God Hates Us All” cut "Bloodline", an interview with the band, and a rather small photo gallery.
It is the last release by Slayer with drummer Paul Bostaph (before he came back in 2013), who left due to a chronic elbow injury. Bostaph was subsequently replaced by the original Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo.
"War At The Warfield" was well received by critics, debuting at number three on the Billboard DVD chart, and sold over 7000 copies in its first week. It was certified Gold for selling over 50000 copies. It also won a 2003 Metal Edge Readers' Choice Award for DVD of the Year.
Fans of the band will like this DVD which stays true to Slayer's uncompromising and brutal live show. Those who want a laugh will apply for the documentary too. Perfect DVD release that will definitely please Slayer fans' cravings for more!!
