This particularly hard to find live album from the mighty Behemoth is for sure worth the time and effort to seek out. If you are new to this band, start with their brand new disc, Evangelion. It is without a doubt the best of their collection. If you have been along for the Behemoth ride for a while now, check this album out. Behemoth, in my opinion, suffered up until Evangelion with a problem which plauged many metal bands in the 80’s and early 90’s: They simply did not sound as good, heavy, technical, and brutal on their albums as they did live. Here you get a first-class recording of Behemoth in all their live, blasphemous glory. You can really get a feeling for what a Behemoth live show is like. This cd rips from front to back and is in my opinion on of the all-time greatest live metal recordings, hands down. Worth the money and as Behemoth will be taking over the international death metal world in the next few years, this album is certain to go up tremendously in value. Five well-deserved stars.
Convenient new size…Still f***ing huge! Metallica’s Live Sh*t: Binge & Purge – the unprecendented box set featuring three complete concerts on three CD’s and three VHS tapes, more than eight hours of live Metallica – is now being made available on three CD’s and two DVD’s at a special price. This colossal box has sold an incredible 613,000 copies since its 1993 release, and this reissue is sure to swell the ranks of those blown away by these shows. Nothing gets left behind — the complete original 72-page full-color book is even included on DVD 2, and the commemorative backstage pass and scary guy stencil are enclosed as well. It’s a one-two-three punch unmatched by any band, before or since, and the perfect gift for that special someone who needs their ass kicked hard by the world’s greatest rock & roll band.This enormous live box set is a necessity for the hardcore Metallifan, though casual fans (if Metallica has any casual fans) might be scared off. It contains material up to and including the self-titled ”black” album, including concert favorites ”Creeping Death” and ”Seek & Destroy,” as well as classics like ”For Whom the Bell Tolls,” ”Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” and ”Fade to Black.” There are also a couple of ripping-fast solos from Jason Newsted and Kirk Hammett, and covers of ”Last Caress,” ”Am I Evil?” and ”Stone Cold Crazy.” The videos are from a 1992 San Diego concert and a 1989 stop on the Damaged Justice tour in Seattle; both are guaranteed to turn any fan who hasn’t had the considerable pleasure of hearing this seminal metal band live green with envy. Pricey, but very highly recommended. –Genevieve Williams
