Debut DVD by the legendary American Death Metal band.
Recorded live and filmed on 4 cameras at the Mean Fiddler, London, 29th November 2004, this DVD features a full 17 track set with old classics and tracks from the last album "Scars Of The Crucifix", played by classic lineup of: Glen Benton (bass), Steve Asheim (drums), Jack Owen (guitar) and Dave Suzuki (guitar). The songs are great, pretty diverse selection here - starting with the new stuff, while heavy on the classics near the end. The crowd is pretty rowdy when the classics are played and that is definitely a plus.
There's also a bonus 30-minute documentary "Behind the Scars", featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Deicide recording "Scars Of The Crucifix", candid interviews at home and backstage with the band, exclusive footage from the rehearsal room and the formation of Deicide, and explanation of Glen's forehead branding. It really takes you inside the band. The documentary features the Hoffman brothers before they left (they left Deicide five days before the concert was recorded) and there's a lot of footage of them, they mainly discuss the band's history. Glen Benton is hilarious, he talks about an e-mail he received from some kid, he plays with a lizard before kicking it (!). Steve Asheim is a crazy bastard; he shows off his gun collection and goes to the shooting range to take pot-shots at some Osama targets.
This is a very solid DVD release from notorious Death Metal band. The production is good, the band sounds top notch, and the extra features go very well with the rest of the release. This DVD is a nice in depth glimpse into the history of Deicide, and their status at that time!!
