The second DVD by legendary German Hard Rock/Heavy/Power Metal band.
If you like Axel Rudi Pell or if you just like to listen to great Heavy Metal, "Live Over Europe" is a must! In Europe, Axel Rudi Pell's live shows are a hot attraction because they so faithfully replicate the experience of '70s and '80s Metal gatherings. "Live Over Europe" is full of 21st century performances that do everything possible to give audiences a '70s/'80s-like Metal experience. The first DVD focuses on Pell's 75-minute appearance at the 2007 Rock Hard Festival in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, while the second DVD is billed as the "Official Bootleg DVD" and was filmed at several different events (including festivals in Sweden in 2004, Germany and Belgium in 2005, and the U.K. in 2006).
In terms of visual quality and sound quality, there is an obvious difference between DVD one and DVD two; Pell's Gelsenkirchen set was filmed professionally, whereas most of the footage on DVD two was filmed from within an audience and has a home movie-ish appearance. The overall quality on DVD two isn't terrible, although it certainly isn't audiophile quality either. But the performances are inspired on both DVDs, "Live Over Europe" is a captivating example of how much live Metal performances of the 2000s can feel like live Metal performances of the '70s and '80s!
The magical atmosphere of Axel Rudi Pell's music, laying sophisticatedly on his smart-influenced Blackmore taste, has raised his reputation to a respected level worldwide.
"Live Over Europe" is an amazing DVD, really this is a must for all the people who like Heavy Metal and great musician skill of course. The Axell Rudi Pell band is a great combo full of amazing musicians, so if you like great guitar soli and catchy songs, please check this release, you'll not regret it!!
