MEGADETH - THAT ONE NIGHT - LIVE IN...
What's it about
Metal band Megadeth doing what they do best, playing heavy f*cking metal!
Is it good movie?
I remember it well, the year was 1985 and I was a long-haired heavy metal loving kid enjoying one of the best years ever for metal music. The kings of shock W.A.S.P. released The Last Command , Ratt was smoking the charts with Invasion of Your Privacy, Power Windows was turning Rush into a household name, and Dokken was Under Lock and Key. The radio was jamming the Crue's Home Sweet Home, and Kiss' power ballad Tears are Falling was getting guys laid in the back seats of cars all over the world.
Every card carrying metal fanatic alive during the 80's remembers 1985. I was watching MTV (they actually played videos then) when the news that former Metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine had a new band and a new album out. As soon as the vjay changed the subject I was on my way to the Record Bar in the mall to pick up my copy of Killing is My Business...And Business is Good, and then ran home to listen to the chunk of metal history that I held in my hands. Songs like Rattlehead, and the title track burned my eardrums with glorious metal. I realized at that moment that I was listening to a true metal band.
When I got my copy of That One Night - Live in Buenos Aires all of the memories of my heavy metal glory days came rushing back. I was sure I was gonna dig it, but what about todays metal fan? What could a metal band that has been around that long offer the miscreant youth of today? Well I'm happy to say that anyone that calling themselves a true metal fan is going to love this baby.
Mustaine is still kicking ass and taking names as the front-man/lead guitarist and is also the only remaining original member of the band. With that said the band still sounds fresh. The band kicks out all the classic songs like; Wake Up Dead, Piece Sells, and Hangar 18 as well as new material so well that at times it was hard to tell it's a live performance.
The stage coverage is beautifully photographed and the production is huge for this kind of band. Huge screens grace the back of the stage and a wall of amps tower behind the band members as they tear through some of the best metal songs ever written.
Long live Megadeth!
Video / Audio
Video: The video was in beautiful widescreen.
Audio: The DTS Surround Sound was killer!
Not much to speak about here, but don't let that sway you from enjoying what this has to offer. There is an alternate version (more like a music video) of Symphony of Destruction which is cool but didn't compare with the main event.
If your a Megadeth fan, then get this DVD as soon as you can and watch true metal masters show you how it's done.
