"Nuclear Blast America (aka CENTURY MEDIA) screws us over and DOES NOT INCLUDE the free CD that the real Nuclear Blast Records (in Germany) included with the European DVD. Century Media always does things half-assed, and this is yet another example of cheating the U.S. customer!"
\m/etal DVD that sets a standard for the "invasion"...

"First, and foremost, I do agree with the last reviewer (and anybody else) about the US clientel getting screwed from the live cd that was released in Europe, he was justified in expressing such remark. Second, the invasion I am referring to is the influx of DVD's being released by the titans of Heavy Metal (Immolation, Blind Guardian, Krisiun, Incantation, and many more in the forthcoming future called the apocalypse), thus giving the legions of the world wide community a reason not to destroy their televisions with a sledge hammer. Third, and to my review, pretty much this is an amazing DVD from one of Germanys superpowers of the \m/etal world. What makes it really good is the fact that the production was "as is", meaning, it wasn't perfect, but tried to capture as much of the live performance and transfer it over to the tv screen thats polluted by Most horrendous TV, plus the clarity of the live footage (both concert and bonus sections) as well as the camera angles were shot with accuracy, with some mishaps, but very minor ones. Then there's the bonus which were chosen very wisely as well as having the video for the "Ravenous Beast" song, man, everytime I watch that video I never get bored it, especially if you're watching on a really big tv (which I did at a local Best Buy once I got my DVD from the mail). Overall, the DVD the 5 stars I have given it, and definitely deserves to be in any legions armory. Also, keep an eye out for the interview with Destruction, you'll love the part when Schmeir talks about Motorhead.- I6Z6A6N"
Excellent piece of 80's Thrash Metal

"Finally I have this DVD in my hands and can say that Thrash Metal Rules!!!!! This DVD, the Live Kreation DVD ( Kreator )and the Chaos DVD ( Sepultura ) are the best adquisitions I have at the moment. I recommend this dvd to all true Headbangers. Long live to Heavy Metal!!!"

"One reviewer wrote that there was no CD with this release. I must have gotten one of a limited edition pressing because in the upper right-hand corner of my copy, which I just purched on 8/21/06 from this Amazon site, there is a hand-written 522/666. This release DOES contain the live CD. Now, I can't promise that this is still available this way from Amazon or elsewhere but this is what I got.
For the DVD alone, this gets five stars. The fact that the CD is included puts it over the top. Here's a rundown of the DVD, then the CD. The DVD contains live footage from three seperate venues: Prattein, Switzerland. Wacken Open Air '02 and With Full Force '03.
