"I agree that this dvd was a pretty big disappointment. I went to this tour twice, once in Atlanta and once in Denver. It was an amazing show and so I expected the DVD that I pre-ordered to be able to capture this. I too was appalled with most everything to do with this DVD. Particularly the song selection, and the lack of special features. I think for the price each band should have gotten more songs, especially Decapitated, whom is no longer together because of the tragedy. I would like to comment though on the fact of why Arsis is not on the DVD. For those of you who may know, Arsis had broken down while on this tour and missed quite a few shows (including the show that the dvd was filmed at). That is why they are not on the dvd, but they should have taken their name off of the cover. Altogether, I felt completely ripped off buying this dvd. It's a good thing the live shows were so unbelievable."

"great bands of the Metal Extreme, all so brutals,
but I hoped much more of Necrophagist, more songs,
I buy this dvd for they,
I feel a little disappointed"
COMPLETE RIP OFF

"wow, what a waste of money this turned out to be.what's wrong with it you ask? well let me count the ways:
1. bad song selections
2. only one decapitated song with poor sound quailty(and they dedicate it to vitek, shameless and disgusting)
3. no arsis even though they put thier name on the cover
4. jump cuts every 2 1/2 seconds
5. poor extras
need i say more"

"Decent enough audio quality. Video is quite dark during most sets, although the camera angles are carefully chosen.
My main gripe is that there is only one Decapitated song...and the audio mix for them is awful (bass guitar overshadows everything else significantly) If this is supposed to be in tribute to the mighty Vitek, then this DVD is actually an insult. Check out the Winds Of Creation reissue or the Humans Dust DVD for much better footage of the band.
The Necrophagist song selection is poor as well...Stillborn isn't exactly their definitive work...and won't do anything to bring new fans to the band. The Marco Minnemann drum solo was a nice addition, though.
Actually, with the exception of Decapitated, every band on here seemed to get shafted with song selection....
Last but certainly not least....an Arsis performance is nowhere to be found on this DVD....yet they played the tour and are listed on the front cover!
Overall Pick this one up in the used bin, don't blow $20 on it.
