Yes it is, if it wouldn’t have been for Grave Digger’s really fucking great songs this DVD would have been, one can say like, almost nothing.
First of all, bad things: The so called “bonus track”, A Journey To Brazil. It feels soooo empty, and it’s soooo short. You’ll get too see the band flying over to Brazil, see some fans screaming, see some interviews that you mostly can’t hear what they’re speaking about (except one short-as-hell-clip) and not much more, I would call that stuff bonus material. And while speaking about empty, I just say, in the concert, my god the scene decoration is awful ! (if it’s allowed to call it decoration ?) You have a pretty big stage, with a huge ugly white-pink striped drapery and with the Reaper (H.P. Katzenburg) standing behind the drums…you can only guess how empty this looks. And then we have the band, have they lost all energy ? They’re not that old, if compared to Ronnie James Dio and dudes like him. The band is almost complete still-standing, except for the running around Chris (cool that someone in the band has energy at least). But bassist Jens Becker really stands still in his corner of the stage, and almost looks bored. And guitarist Manni moves at least a little, but is also pretty still-standing. But despite this, they eventually make a good concert, which I will come into now.
The good things: Which I’ve said already, it’s Grave Digger’s songs. They are so amazing that they make the concert awesome, eventhough the stage decoration is shitty and most band members are standing still. I mean almost every track is kicking and the band sounds tight and Chris’ singing is mostly good, although he avoids pretty much of the higher-notes. Just seeing songs like Excalibur, Grave Dancer, Symphony of Death and so on, and so on is great. But best of all is the tracks following each other in a row at the end, from 20 – 27, it’s goosebumps all the wayI can tell you. The choruses of “Dark Of The Sun”. “Twilight Of The Gods (best on the DVD), “Rebellion” and “Heavy Metal Breakdown” is pure awesomeness.
The concert is long, so that’s good. But if you’re thinking of buying this, I would say, don’t do it for a full price. You’ll get awesome live-versions of the songs, that would maybe be sufficient, but you maybe need some funny and interesting bonus material to watch to, and that is something this DVD doesn’t have. But since I’m such a huge Grave Digger fan, I still think it’s a reasonable good DVD.
