Manowar continue along with their collection of DVD’s with the “Hell On Earth” series. This is the fourth volume in the series and comes to us courtesy of the people at SPV Records. This edition is probably the most comprehensive of the entire batch and it comes in perhaps the most well-designed package that I have ever seen. Loaded with photos and artwork on its numerous fold-out compartments this truly makes for an impressive addition to your DVD Collection. There is also a great little booklet in the box that features not only excellent band pictures but also has a discography and videography of the Magic Circle Music family products. MCM is a company run by bassist DeMaio. One of the features on the first DVD which is the main part of the program, is the opportunity to decide how you will watch it. As there is live footage along with crowd interaction and band stuff I was glad to be able to simply watch all of the live clips in one sitting. It’s great to include some of that stuff, but many viewers might want to get to the meat of the piece and that is very simply Manowar in concert. Too often bands release products like this and you have no choice on how to watch it. The lineup for the DVD stands at Eric Adams, Joey DeMaio, Scott Columbus and Karl Logan. The band is still amazing in performance and a legend in Heavy Metal music. The DVD does not feature too much of the bands classic material, but that makes sense since there are three other additions to enjoy.

On the second DVD you get a great amount of bonus features. There is everything from information on the band; and the fans to stuff such as a Heavy Metal Marriage. There is even additional live stuff and stuff that was cut from the main program. The group also includes for you an audio CD that includes the unreleased “King Of Kings”. This track is from the forthcoming Manowar CD and is a nice bonus to include. Certainly the fan of this band and the particular series collection will be getting their money’s worth. I don’t think we shall see the end of this line any time soon and since each one seems to capture a sense of time in the bands life, this is a good way to keep a video archive of them for posterity. Check it out and yell “DEATH TO FALSE METAL!!!!!!”
