Best metal gigs live filmed

Recommended Posts

Assuming there is not already a thread for this I was interested in what are people's favourite recorded filmed live metal shows? I can't go to so many gigs even before Corona due to family commitments but am interested what others like. I really like immortal live at wacken 2007 such energy and show manship, obituary live at bloodstock 2016 just a very good show all round everything very sharp.

Hands down "Live After Death". Excellent audio and the camera work was great. Back in the day, Stryper's "Live in Japan" was really well shot.

Great thanks audio phile will check those out. I can only guess that bands don't really release many live filmed recordings these days? Has it ever been much of a thing? There are a few recently released ones of note prob amon amarth is best of the newer lived filmed gigs but was quite expensive new.

Live after death. What a recording of maiden live. Really gets alot of the energy of it all with great camera work and sound quality is really good like you said. Dodgy clothes though 😃 mind you other bands no doubt wore worse in the 80s probably another thread for that😆 i take it most fans count Dickinson as the maiden frontman. 

There must be a few other classic live filmed concerts anyone🤔 priest and Sabbath likely and Metallica definitely but anymore apart from big 4 live 👻🦇☠️

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
