ROADRUNNER UNITED - The Concert (2DVD)
On December 15th, 2005, in New York City, Roadrunner Records celebrated its 25th Anniversary with the Metal Concert to end all Metal Concerts. 39 musicians, representing 25 different Roadrunner bands, performed 25 songs from 19 different bands' repertoire. This unique and unprecedented aggregation of musicians was no jam session. Each song was studiously rehearsed and arranged, coming together in exuberant perfection to produce a concert that can only be called Legend. Conceived as a follow-up to the Roadrunner United All Star recording sessions, the label recruited a core team of musicians (Dino Cazares, Adam Duce, Paul Gray, Joey Jordison, Andreas Kisser and Roy Mayorga), and as they chose the songs and rehearsed them tirelessly, dozens of other musicians came on board. More than a celebration of Roadrunner, this DVD represents the gathering of a community of musicians that spans the last 25 years of heavy metal history, from King Diamond to Slipknot and beyond. All those who were lucky enough to be there had a night they will never forget. This DVD presents that concert in its entirety, along with a documentary of interviews with many of the artists involved, looking back on the event, and sharing their stories about one special night.
