SCORPIONS – Forever And A Day DVD Review

It’s been quite a while since my latest DVD review, so I thought it would be cool to do another one. Yesterday I watched the documentary “Forever And A Day”. It documents the farewell tour of Germany’s biggest Hard Rock export, Scorpions. The movie was released in some cinemas in conjunction with the release of the new album “Return To Forever”. I will discuss whether or not this was a smart move in this review.

ALICE COOPER: Raise The Dead – Live From Wacken Review

I liked the introduction to the covers section of the set and the covers themselves are great. It takes a brave man to cover one iconic song by an icon band but here Alice takes on four of the most famous and familiar songs of all time and every one of them is brilliant. A big part of that is due to the band – it’s not very many guitarists that can or should attempt “Foxy Lady” but the version here is one of the stand out tracks on the album.

Dream Theater – Live at Luna Park DVD Review

These music virtuoso’s shine once more and no matter how much of a burden the life of being in DT had to be for Portnoy after 25 years of the same grind as he pretty much stated he wanted a break from the band and the guys did not want that, is evident to me that they keep on forging forward more stronger then they’ve ever been, and their fan base has only gotten bigger throughout the years. No complaints from me, great package for any Dream Theater fan.

EUROPE live at Sweden Rock / 30th Anniversary Show Review

In 1983 a young band from Sweden got out to conquer the world. Only three years later they wrote one of the biggest rock classics of all time: with “The Final Countdown” Europe were at the top of their game. After the big break in 1992 they did the comeback of the year in 2004. But the sound had changed. Today Europe are a more harder rockin’ band with lots of bluesy elements (especially on their latest album “Bag Of Bones”). So, this year the guys celebrated and recorded their 30th Anniversary show at one of the biggest Rock festivals: Sweden Rock! A concert, 30 years in the making – let’s see if it’s so bombastic like it sounds.

Deep Purple – Perfect Strangers Live DVD Review

Deep Purple even brings an element of fun in this live setting as you hear long virtuoso pieces that the fans used to, including a drum solo from Paice in Lazy or six-minute keyboard solo by Lord all make for an interesting performance one which many didn’t think could happen considering the bands peak and the turmoil within at one point. If you’re a long time Purple fan, you NEED to check out this performance simply to take a sneak peak in time, a wrinkle of greatness was again rekindled and shared live on stage, chemistry that can only be had when you make great music, and this line up was responsible for so many of those moments early on in their careers.
