"What really needs to be said? Unearth has always put on an excellent live show, and their first live dvd shows that. Fill-in drummer Derek Kerswill (Kingdom Of Sorrow) is spot on with his performance, I didn't know what to expect. All I knew was Mike Justian wasn't in the band anymore, and it was a revolving door going on with Gene Hoglan (Death/Strapping Young Lad) filling in, and now Derek (who knows if he'll official join?). His playing is very top-notch, he just explodes, which is something that I could hardly say about Mike. The performance as a whole is excellent. I'm sure that people'll likely say that they used overdubs, but does it really matter as long as it sounds good? The best of the bonus features on the second disc, of course, is the 60+ minute documentary which crams in a lot of the history of the band from the early days to right now. It's filled to the brim with hilarious tour stories, talk about recording albums, record labels, line-up changes, plus interviews from other musicians including Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), Vinnie Paul (Hellyeah/Pantera), Matt Devries (Chimaira), Dino Cazares (Divine Heresy/ex-Fear factory), Adam and Joel from Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God, Every Time I Die, As I Lay Dying, etc. All of the band's music videos are here as well, plus two bonus performances, and a photo gallery. This dvd set will fit right in with the dvd's Killswitch Engage and All That Remains have put out.
Also check out the new live dvd's from God Forbid and Nevermore, which'll be coming out later this year."

"The production value of both DVDs is top notch. Excellent sound quality, excellent/funny documentary of the band. The downside comes from the substitute drummer throwing the band off beat on some of the songs, particularly from In The Eyes of Fire. The drummer gets fatigued and slows a bit while the rest of the band can play faster. Other than that, the live show it's crazy and sounds great. The singer doesn't fatigue at all. Also worth noting is the portions between songs are cut out for CD-like tracking. It's a plus and a minus, matter of opinion. Great DVD overall. FANS MUST BUY THIS. It's definitely worth every penny and showcases just how intense and ridiculous the band can be."

"The song choices are spot on, their performance is jaw-dropping and Unearth's energetic live acts are displayed at their best here. Very good sound mix (I think they overdubbed a tiny bit, but you will be more absorbed in their performance to notice :D), and excellent camera angles make this a great grab for a fan of Unearth. You also get to see audience interaction as well during the show which is a great touch.
To be honest, I think their songs sound better live than on their album recordings.
Finally, the second disc is great. The biography provides a lot of insight into the band's history and has a lot of interviews from members of other bands in the metal/hardcore genre.
Grab this, you wont regret it...I promise."
