  • Disturbed, Chevelle, Taproot, and Unloco, not a very good combination, since the only awesome band is Disturbed in there. The only song I like from the other bands is ‘The Red’ by Chevelle. The Distrubed part was awesome, their cover for ‘Fade To Black’ was infallable, proving once again that they are the future of metal, shock-rocker Ozzy Osbourne was right.

  • Disturbed, Taproot, Chevelle and Unloco. Awesome combination. Taproot is a good bad, however didn’t sound the best live, but their cd sounds awesome. Unloco and Chevelle both sounded pretty good on the cd and were very easy to get into and enjoy the music, good balance between vocals and music so you can understand the lyrics. We all know Disturbed is an incredible band. Powerful vocals, great guitar riffs, very talented band. This live performance was nothing less than that. They remade Fade to Black by Metallica which was incredible. The intro to their performance was very well done. The content and song choice was excellent, powerful and intense vocals with their well known beats and guitar made this cd definately worth while. Throw in the DVD for 5.1 surround on all the songs, turn up the volume, and enjoy the music.

  • Even though I never attended any of the ‘Music As A Weapon 2003′ shows, I have seen Disturbed & Chevelle live, and that is why I found this album so appealing. Disturbed’s second headlining package tour featured Taproot, Chevelle and the now defunct Unloco. Together, some of the bands best tracks are present, with a few collaborations, covers and rarities. Obviously, Disturbed are prominently featured. Most of the live songs here are pulled from 2002’s ‘Believe’ disc, but there are a few little nuggets that stand out, such as a collaboration with Pete of Chevelle and Joey of Unloco on the hit “Stupify,” the previously unreleased track “Dehumanized” (the studio version remains unheard) and a surprising cover of Metallica’s “Fade To Black.” The band is in top form (just as when I saw them in 2001) here. Taproot, who played direct support to Disturbed on the tour, only get three songs, which is disappointing. I would have hoped for more, especially since nothing from their debut, ‘Gift,’ is featured, but the band does a superb job with what they are given. Chevelle are given a mere two tracks, which is shocking considering the amount of success they have had in the past two years. “Forfeit” is an amazing song live, and Disturbed frontman David Draiman helps beef up “The Red” with a guest spot. If you want more live Chevelle, they have a live CD out called “Live From The Road,” which is definitely worth checking out. As far as what they have featured here, I am a little disappointed. It would have been nice to hear some songs that are a little harder to find from them (i.e. “Don’t Fake This,” which they didn’t play live when I saw them and doesn’t appear on their live album either). Finally, Unloco, the opening band makes a decent performance with “Empty” and the far superior “Bruises.” Nothing much to scream over, though. The DVD covers the same area as the CD. Same performances and all, along with the music video for Disturbed’s “Liberate.” All in all, it’s a decent buy. It’s definitely somewhat lacking, but if you went to one of the shows or have seen any of the bands live, this would be a nice little package to own. Personally, I don’t feel the DVD is really necessary, and I recommend sticking to just the CD version.
