One of the Best Live Performances Ever Put to DVD!

"I can honestly say that even being a fan of mainly black metal like Burzum, Nokturnal Mortum, and Emperor, and being a huge fan of bands like Summoning, I'm still a metalhead at heart. I still have room for the mercyless pummeling of savage and ruthless live performances, and SJR fill that space perfectly.

After 2 albums, and already 1 DVD, these grungy metalheads hailing from the South decided to take the camera to the widely renowned CBGB's in New York. Now, you may think that isn't a big deal for a band like SJR, but it is the PERFECT live setting for a punk-laced, hardcore-laden metal band such as Superjoint. The atmosphere presents a true unity between the fans and musicians, especially with the stage-diving, enthusiasm, and all-around aggressive performance.

The setlist is perfectly executed, and have an equal share of songs from both albums. The sound is amazing, every instrument can be heard clearly. The camera angles capture all band members very well, and the quality itself is very clear. Kudos to the cameraman for braving a small venue, and a death-trap of a moshpit! Phil's interaction with the crowd is also quite shocking. You would think he would have a rockstar attitude, but he welcomes the audience to jump on stage and interact with the band. His vocals lean toward more of the style of high screams used on "Use Once and Destroy". He runs out of breath a few times throughout, and seems to struggle at times, but if I rocked as hard as he does on stage, I would as well! The highlights are "Personal Insult", "One Song/Ozena", "The Alcoholik", and "Stealing a Page or Two.."

The bonus features include videos of "Dress Like a Target" and "Waiting for the Turning Point", and an exclusive interview with the band, offering quite an insight with some funny moments. I would reccommend this DVD to all SJR fans, or to anyone who wants an in-your-face live performance."

"I hate people that just write reviews without even buying items. In this case Philosophyfan wrote a review saying that there is no interviews or music videos, only concert footage. Well... I dont know where you bought your dvd because, I have this DVD there is an interview containing each member after the show. There are also videos for Dress Like a Target and Waiting for the Turning point. I just wanted to clear that up. Ive seen Superjoint Ritual 4 times. This dvd is more like the live shows then the first one. The first one didnt have fans jumping on and off stage like a true superjoint ritual show. The last time I saw SJR was in Charleston, SC w/ Slipknot. The set was pretty much just like this with the 1 song/ozena. The sad thing was I was the only person to jump on the stage. I jumped up during the first song Anti-faith, shook Phils hand and jumped off. As i was croud surfing a bouncer threw me down and said "there was no croud surfing" and if i did that again i would get thrown out. I thought that was stupid. Its a SJR show! not Linkin Park. One good thing that happned was a lady onstage after their set, gave me their set list since I was the only person to jump onstage. All in all this is a very good DVD that captures the true SJR show with fans jumping onstage and going nuts. Hopefully Phil wont quit music as his statement about Dimebags Death insinuates:
"This has changed the entire world, and this is the last you'll be seeing of me for a long time.

"I just bought this today, and I loved every single moment of it. The two bonus videos for Dress Like A Target and Waiting For The Turning Point are very cool as well. A must have for true headbangers. Thanks Phil. Superjoint Ritual rules all!"
