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 ??☠️

Yowie looks good. I used to listen to alot of sepultura. Will check it out. What your best era for sepultura. The early thrash years, the roots groove metal era or the Derrick green stuff. 

Definitely the Max era for me, but Roots being the album of that era I've least enjoyed. I've only liked the last 2 albums since Derrick Green joined. In saying that, there's a few albums I haven't listened to since he joined so I might like a few more.

Yeah roots is not my favourite either. They have more of groove metal thing going on which didn't like so much. Still roots is a song I very much like. The album's before are better for me, guess I prefer the Thrashier music of albums schizophrenia, beaneath the ...., And arise,  still like chaos ad but not quite as much chaos ad, it  was my first proper metal album so I still value it for that. Haven't listened to much of Derrick green era. Sounds like you gave  sepultura a go for most of there albums which is great. More than me and loads of others. ? I've listened to some stuff from green era and it was good, not max good but still .

Nah, never got to see them live. I got to see Soulfly in 1999 and that was very cool. 

Arise is definitely my favourite Sepultura album. It was the first thing I'd heard of them. Before I heard it I was into stuff about as heavy as Metallica and Slayer and Arise just blew me away. It took it a step further and I loved it. It just sparked something in me. I still love that album to this day.

True mettalica followed by sepultura is a mind blower. First time I heard sepultura. It was Territory. I thought it was a monster singing.ha ha. I was truly shocked but was a big fan soon enough

Would you see sepultura if they played at city near you. For ages I was like no way. I'm coming round to the idea and only taken me 20 odd years ? although seeing soulfly is  cool, is max better live or on cd. 

 

arise is pretty cool album. For a while when I listened to them most days after work arise felt like there most complete and mature album. Sort of like a peak. Obviously the catchy riffs helped. I'm pretty sure macabre eternal has done a very good review on this album on this forum too. It's there somewhere. Worth a read if you find it.

Arise is fantastic, my favorite from Sepultura and one of my two favorite thrash albums overall.

I would definitely go see Sepultura if they came to a city near me. We don't get many big bands come to or near where I live, especially big metal bands. I usually have to travel about 1,400 kilometers to see big metal bands that I like. 

Max was great live back then. It was 20 years ago. I think his voice has changed a bit since. He doesn't go as low as he used to.

Good to hear from you yowie. That makes you most determined metal fan I know. I see most of my gigs in London.  Very easy 60 mins commute in to most north London gigs. Which part of world are you from is it Australia?

Also interesting point re Max voice. You'd think you'd go lower as you get older but maybe his lungs have lost some of there power after all the use he's given them. 2nd hand Smoke from performing gigs won't help his lungs much either

Cool. Will see rest of sepultura live video you posted. It's really good but got bit distracted with life and lack of free time. I've been watching children of bodum live as after Kerry king was singing Alex laiho praises thought I would check it out. What an amazing player live and so quick.  Keyboardist is great too. So sad he died at 41. Whilst I'm not biggest fan of there sound I can really appreciate the skill and like the music enough to keep watching.

I've definitely enjoyed listening to this one a bit. Such a good recording imo. For me band sounds so tight which is impressive considering that there a veteran band and some veteran bands just can't play live as well as they used to. ?? Also includes unexpected bit when Trevor  chuggs a pint. Obviously a thirsty man. ?

    • 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!
