Nice try, but this one's not an official release

"Paradox - Closing the Chapter marked the end of an all too brief era for Royal Hunt, as it was released just after the band fired their fantastic vocalist DC Cooper. This video is essentially a complete live performance of the band's amazing studio album Paradox, the last to feature Cooper on vocals. It is a solid performance, and DC delivers the goods, but it lacks the variety and crowd interaction that made the band's previous live effort "1996" so enjoyable.
Watching DC Cooper on stage you can't help but think he's a man out of time. If he had been around a decade earlier he'd probably be as big a star as David Coverdale (or at least Mike Tramp). He has that whole 80's rock frontman persona down pat.
NOTE: The DVD listed here is not an official release. I'm guessing some enterprising fan converted the VHS tape to DVD. Given the split between Cooper and Royal Hunt, it is unlikely that this great video performance will ever make it to an official DVD release. The "1996" video will likely suffer a similar fate. I can only hope that some day the band will give these a proper DVD release.
I'll believe this product exists if I ever recieve it

"I ordered this product, but instead was sent an item totally different than what I ordered. Before and after I ordered this item it said that there was one item of this in stock. Before AND after? Seems fishy. And rather than offering to send this to me (which is what I wanted) they refunded my money. I kinda thought seeing this item for sale was too good to be true. And you know what they say about somethig seeming to good to be true."
