Filmed live on December 12th, 1993 this Blu-ray disc captures the heart and soul of one of hard rock/heavy metal’s absolute legends. As a huge fan of Dio’s catalog of work, the set list on this disc could not have been better and includes not only his classic hits (“Rainbow In The Dark,” “Last In Line”), but also songs from his time spent in Rainbow (“Man On A Silver Mountain”) and even iconic songs from his days in Black Sabbath (“Heaven And Hell,” “The Mob Rules”). This disc covers the highlights of his career and fans of Dio are going to absolutely want to get their hands on this ASAP!

Fans of both Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society are going to totally dig this Blu-ray disc which features 17 kick-ass tracks performed live in a rather intimate setting. For this performance the band are seated at the front of the venue and the focus is on the killer, hard-edged, bluesy tunes and unbelievable playing of Zakk Wylde and the band, rather than on a energetic and theatrical show.

Filmed on November 14, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan this concert extravaganza features some of the best players in the business performing together onstage for one magical night. With drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs) bassist Billy Sheehan (Talas, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth), guitarist Tony MacAlpine and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion, Dream Theater, Billy Idol) all playing in unison, the amount of talent on the stage is just utterly ridiculous.

“As The Palaces Burn” was originally a movie meant to document the increasing popularity of the extreme metal genre that Lamb Of God has helped define. But the direction of the movie took a much different twist when the front man for the band, Randy Blythe, was arrested and charged with manslaughter of a fan in the Czech Republic. Viewers of the movie will find themselves in the middle of a high tension, nail biting court case that spans continents and rivals any courtroom drama you may have previously seen on the big screen.

Bath Salt Zombies is yet another horror film from the prolific B movie producer Dustin Mills. I have been a fan of his work since I saw the Puppet Monster Massacre a few years back; it is quite amazing what he is able to do with so little in the way of finances… I only wonder what he would be capable of if he had a typical Hollywood budget. Alas that is not the case.

I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Maiden England ’88 for some time now. The concert was previously released in VHS format (and later CD) back in 1989, but never available on DVD until now. While I have heard most of Maiden’s past live albums, Maiden England ’88 has always been spoke of in reverential tones by those who have seen it, so I was curious to see what it was actually like.
