"saxon's two dvd release "to hell and back again" is billed as a movie but its more a documentary about the writing and recording of, and touring for, their superb "lion heart" cd. the feature is about an hour and a half long and while it was interesting to watch once, im not sure if i will watch it again. disc one contains the documentary feature as well as a live segment. the live segment consist of the many shows they did in support of lion heart spliced together to create a montage. i was not crazy about this particular effect because although you hear a live recording you do not know which show it was from. the scenes shift from outdoor shows to indoor shows from large venues to small ones. disc two features all of their recent videos including rock to stay alive with lemmy and other guest and a live rendition of judas priest you got another thing comin featuring female metal singer doro. there is also a full concert on here the "rocksound festival" which is, to me, the best thing about this dvd set. the band tares it up in this set but i found the audience to be a little on the tired side. biff thanks the crowd for staying around so long so it must have been one of those twenty hour shows with a thousand bands where saxon was one of the last bands to appear. i personally loathe these kind of shows. all the concert footage contains saxon's classic songs but i was kind of surprised they did not include more live material from the lion heart cd. the audio was great, nothing buried in the mix guitars drums bass vocals everything sounds ferocious. in conclusion, great band, great music, so-so dvd."
