Black Label Society - "The European Invasion Doom Troopin'" DVD
From Aural Innovations #35 (January 2007)
Last summer I got to see Black Label Society on this tour at the Sweden Rock Festival and despite the short set they kicked ass. You even get to see some video shot from the stage of this gig in the extra material. This was a great set and the band plays fantastic at this Paris gig and the London Gig is quite special too. I recommend you see the backstage stuff about the London gig before you watch the concert part to get some insight into the madness. The filming of the Paris concert is first class and cool effects are used and Zakk does plenty of soloing and is in top form both musically and mentally. This is a great set of tracks focusing mostly on the Mafia and Blessed Hellride albums with only 2 older tracks from the first 3 records played (Demise of Sanity and Genocide Junkies). Great 5.1 sound and picture. The extra stuff is really great and funny and you really feel like you are on tour with these alcoholics. Excellent double DVD and a great value for the money!
