THE DVD OPENS W/ CROWD SHOTS & THEY ARE CHANTING & MOSHING ALONG W/ THE OPENING NOTES OF "AMONG THE LIVING" WHICH SETS THE TONE FOR THE WHOLE SHOW.

"CAUGHT IN A MOSH" TOTAL AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION, LOVE SCOTT IAN & FRANK BELLO'S GO PROS ON THE HEADSTOCKS OF THEIR GUITARS. "I AM THE LAW" GETS THE CROWD IN A FRENZY THEY ARE SO INTO IT! THEY KNOW EVERY SONG.
FOOTAGE OF THE FANS OUTSIDE THE SHOW & THE BAND GETTING TO THE SHOW. "NFL" THE CROWD SINGS NEARLY THE ENTIRE SONG, WHAT AN AMAZING FEELING IT MUST BE TO HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SINGING YOUR SONG! "SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET", "IN THE END", THEY PLAYED THEIR VERSION OF AC/DC'S "T.N.T.", JOEY BELLADONNA HAS THE VIDEO CAMERA. "I'M ALIVE".
EXTREMELY ENJOYABLE DVD/CONCERT/SHOW. THE CROWD WAS AMAZING, NO WONDER THEY CHOSE TO SHOOT THE DVD HERE. VERY LITTLE FOOTAGE OF THE LATEST GUITAR PLAYER JON DONAIS. "INDIANS", JOEY IS COERCING THE CROWD TO GET CRAZY, IT SEEMS THEY TOOK OUT THE AUDIENCE NOISE AT THIS POINT, WHICH I THINK WAS A BIG MISTAKE.

BACK FROM BEYOND
CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS
MASSACRE is BACK FROM BEYOND releasing their 3rd full-length album by way of Century Media. Gracing the talents of artist Toshihiro Egawa on the cover (a slight continuation of the cover art from 1991’s FROM BEYOND by Edward Repka), are 13 tracks (+1 intro) of Floridian Death Metal. Some, or many for that matter, might concern themselves with the absence of original vocalist Kam Lee, but this shouldn’t over-shadow the fact that Terry Butler (DEATH, OBITUARY, SIX FEET UNDER) returns since his absence from 1996’s PROMISE, leaving Rick Rozz as the only long-standing member. Making their presence felt are latest members Edwin Webb on vocals and Mike Mazzonetto on drums, both having only appeared on the previously released EP (2012) CONDEMENED TO THE SHADOWS, of which all 2 tracks appear on BACK FROM BEYOND.
Rozz’ songwriting grooves real well with the rhythm section of Butler and Mazzonetto backing him up, all rounded out by a successful vocal effort by Webb. My favorite tracks from this album are “False Revelations”, “The Evil Within”, “Shield of the Sun" and the title track – all which highlight MASSACRE’S style., not to mention “Honor the Fallen” which pays tribute to the late, great Jeff Hanneman (RIP).
MASSACRE is sticking to its roots with the thick crunching sound that they're known for, not feeling the need to over-polish or over-produce with BACK FROM BEYOND as a demonstration of Old School Death Metal still holding ground in a time where bands are over-exerting themselves (and the fans) with scales, arpeggios, convulsive drumming and mathematic rhythms. Don’t get me wrong, I love the evolution of what Extreme Metal has come to be., but BACK FROM BEYOND gives you a break from all that with tunes that remind you why you got into Death Metal in the first place.
COMEBACK KID ARE:
Kyle Profeta - Drums
Andrew Neufeld - Vocals
Jeremy Hiebert - Guitar
Stuart Ross - Guitar
Bringing forward the modern edge of hardcore punk are the Canadiens known as Comeback Kid (named after hockey great Mario Lemieux's comeback to hockey) with their fifth effort DIE KNOWING (Victory Records). Only about a decade old, this four-piece is straight to the point with their short tunes, (the opening track being the longest at 4:07) with a commercial new school sound with echos of the old-school, painting a good picture of a younger generation easily relating to this singing and dancing, east coast-style. Die Knowing is a good mix of the fast punk and slow groove oriented hardcore. The heaviest and fastest tunes I’d recommend are “Lower The Line”, “I Depend, I Control”, “Beyond”, and “Full Swing” featuring ex-vocalist, Scott Wade. So whether you’re diehards/fans of Sick Of It All or a New School fan who likes Hatebreed, It has something for everyone and definitely worth a listen.
