I went into this DVD only knowing the name All That Remains rather than what the band actually sounded like. Living in Rhode Island, that’s odd for me because I usually have a good idea of what’s going on in the New England Metal scene. All That Remains comes from Boston, Massachusetts (my backyard) and they play many local dates among bills that have been in larger venues like Ozzfest and Sounds Of The Underground. Not only that but their last studio album, THE FALL OF IDEALS (2006) has exceeded 100,000 units sold and is closing in fast on 150,000! All That Remains is also featured on the GUITAR HERO video game and MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball. With all this success, and the band’s close homebase, it’s surprising that I haven’t come across their music.

When I pressed PLAY, I watched a serious and energetic performance from The Recher Theatre in Baltimore with fan reaction before and after. Knowing nothing about the music, I was immeadiately drawn in by Phil Labonte (ex-Shadows Fall) commanding presence at the mic and the guitar dueling of Oli Hebert and Mike Martin. Songs like ‘Six’, Tattered On My Sleeve’, and ‘Indictment’ are explosive and just make the crowd go wilder as evidenced by the pit and the floor that never stops moving and is slam packed. Interviews after the show reveal a list for the ER: broken feet, fingers, cuts, bruises, sprains…..all with an undying enthusiasm for All That Remains.

The concert from Philadelphia, at The Theatre Of Living Arts, is slightly shorter but no less powerful. ‘Become The Catalyst’, ‘This Darkened Heart’, and ‘Not Alone’ pound the audience into a frenzy. The crowd eats up the band’s blend of Hardcore and Melodic Death Metal and responds like Baltimore: more broken bones, cuts, bruises…..to be young again! Not sure I’d venture into the pit!

For someone that had no clue about the band, the inclusion of six videos, backstage footage, and interviews really helped me get an idea of who the band are and what there studio albums sound like. My favorite extra is the fans…..hearing how they react before and after the two concerts, at the meet and greets, etc is truly what being a Metal fan is all about.

Bottom Line:
If you like All That Remains, this is essential to your collection. If you’ve just discovered the band, this DVD is a great introduction. For me, this was a great way to discover a new band (to me, they have three albums!) and become a fan. This DVD was just released on October 30th and is well worth the money spent…..now I have to spend some more and get their studio albums.

    I love All that Remains, I got to see them live a few days before one of the filmed dates and they put on a great show. I have been wanting to pick this up and when I get a little extra cash – I will.

  3. Rob – I honestly had no idea what their music was like…..pleasantly surprised.

    Lying – It’s worth the money!

    Yeah, the DVD really shows how the scene is, and reminds me of my younger days. All That Remains is one of the greatest bands today because of their progressive style which has influences from hardcore, death metal, and melodic vocals (bands like AFI); although, it is a bit on the heavy side, which I have no beef with. Live long and prosper, motherfuckers. \m/ \m/
