And yes, I mean music and movie dvd’s. This dvd is amazing. Being a fan of Killswitch Engage ever since their debut came out on Ferret, I HAD to buy this. A huge documentary, I think it’s something along the lines of an hour and a half, tells the story of how the band formed from many different bands, to Jesse leaving, to right now. It includes all the music videos, which is great. The bonus features are great, and often humorous, especially when their roadie gets naked and crawls into bed with Jordan, the drummer of AILD, who is passed out asleep. And the greatest thing about this dvd, is the amazing live show they play. They sound fantastic live. The show is about 75 mins and never lets you down.
I’m sure some of you have read what I just wrote about how well they sound live and are saying to yourself “Oh they over dubbed the concert, blah blah blah”. I have seen plenty of live Killswitch Engage videos that weren’t “overdubbed” and they sounded fantastic. My friend has also seen them a few times and has told me how amazing they are live.
For all of you complaining about the “overdubbing” and how lame it is, did you even buy the dvd? If you did, and you can actually read, you will realize that it says “Live DVD Audio Mixed By Adam Dutkiewicz at Zing Studios” and “Audio Mastered By Drew Layne at All Digital. NYC Oct. 3, 2005.” So of course the big show they have on here is going to sound well. Anything is going to sound great if Adam is in charge of the sound. (You hear about this in the dvd.) And I bet that almost all of the music dvd’s you complainers buy has a live show that is “overdubbed” or mixed and mastered.
All in all, I love everything about Killswitch and their dvd. They are one of the few bands that you never have to skip a track when you are listening to any of their cds. I highly recommend this to any Killswitch fan. It is a must have and is definitely worth the money.
