Descriptions du produit
This outstanding rocumentary features part 2 of the series "Hell On Earth". With almost two hours of running time "Hell On Earth Part 2" documents the 1998 "Hell on Stage" European Tour with almost 30 shows. Mixed in 5.1 surround sound it features for the first time ever full length versions of some of Manowar's most classic songs like "Bridge Of Death", "Blood Of The Kings", "Hatred", "Guyana" and the epic "Dark Avenger" - featuring the bone chilling narratin of Orson Welles, "The Gods Made Heavy Metal" and the glorious epic "Master Of The Wind as well as many others.
The second DVD "Blood In Brazil" contains one of the band's most legendary performances as the Special Guests at the 1998 "Philips Monsters Of Rock" in Sao Paulo Brazil'. For the first time a complete concert performance has been captured in the band's career. A visual testament to Manowar's kingdom of steel in Brazil. Filmed with more than twelve cameras in front of more than 30.000 of South America's wildest and most devoted metal fans and also mixed in 5.1 audio, this spectacular concert was the highlight of the 1998 "Philips Monster Of Rock".
Naturally bonus footage is included in both DVDs: alternate song versions, interviews with journalists and crew members give viewers an incredible insight into the magic of the music and the fans of Manowar.

Non seulement il nous offre 2 DVD avec 2 périodes de concerts, mais il comprend pleins de bonus qui nous font découvrir le groupe comme on ne les a jamais vu...
Pour ceux qui ont toujours apprécié Manowar, ils vont encore devenir plus fou du groupe car lorsqu'on a vu cette exclusivité, on a déjà envie de découvrir ce que le groupe nous prépare..
Un DVD à voir, revoir, écouter en musique de fond, ce bijou ne vous quittera plus !...
Enfin un concert de A jusqu'a Z des maitres du metal!
En plus ce n'est pas n'importe quel concert puisque c'est celui qu Manowar a donne aux monsters of rock de Brazil, autrement dit c'est bouillant, et il faut aussi dire que l'autre dvd "hell on earth part 2" est encore mieux que le précédent, les Chansons qu'on y retrouve sont géniales et le son exceptionnel
J'ai été particulièrement touché par l'humanité des membres du groupe, par exemple, lorsqu'ils font monter un fan en fauteuil roulant sur la scène.

I was a little disappointed with their first commercial video release, "Hell on Earth Part 1," but I have to say that "Hell on Earth Part 2" is excellent.
Whether you take this group seriously or not, you have to admire their dedication to their fans and to their unrelenting standards. No other group I'm aware of appreciates their fans as much as Manowar. It's a shame they don't have a larger following in USA - maybe I'd get to see them live out here on the west coast if they did...
-disc 1 takes footage from various concerts and adds introductions and some commentary from the band about the signifigance of the song or specific performance. Some great comments are given by guitarist Karl Logan especially.
-disc 2 is a full concert in south america and some passionate commentary about the concert and the entire legacy of Manowar from a journalist. The extra material here was something i was sceptical of, seemingly useless, but it turned out to be very satisfying. I declare myself a true fan of the group after taking in all of these experiences.
I own the 1st and 4th Manowar dvds, both of which have too much talking, too much wasted time. On the first dvd, the sound quality isn't very consistant or good, and on the 4th, the song selection and performance quality drops dramatically. I believe that Fire and Blood is really the band in it's prime. The sound quality and visual spectacle is very well done here.
It is a dvd that may open the eyes of the ignorant to the often unheard gems of manowar's career (the songs Gates of Valhalla, Bridge of Death, Guyana, excellent bass and guitar solo spots)
i often feel sorry that many people do not know much about Manowar, or that they only see the cheesy and brutish aspects of the band. This dvd captures some of the true spirit that the band should be known for, true heavy metal power and majesty. HAIL AND KILL and so on, Manowar is truly great.
1) It's the band at their most vintage. It's a very sad fact that there is nothing live from the mid and late 1980s when the band was arguably at their artistic peak and still relatively young. Some people criticize that the band is getting older and their music is getting a bit repetitive--this is a bit unfair, but I think most fans will agree their earlier music is their best, even if their releases in the 90s and 2000s are terrific as well. So, all of the tracks on this album come from the 1980s and some from the 1990s, which is a plus, and sets it apart from the other releases in this series. For me, having a video release of footage from the 1990s is big in another way in that by the time Warriors of the World came out, Eric Adams' voice had deteriorated with age a little and so he started changing his style to rely more on a raspy sort of singing for larger parts of the songs. Which is fine, but like many people I prefer his earlier, higher-pitched and more operatic style from when he was younger, and this is the only release that gives a glimpse of the very end of that era for him. Seeing him perform March for Revenge, Bridge of Death and Gates of Valhalla was stunning. Not that he can't do it today--I saw him perform all of Battle Hymns in Cleveland this month and he was utterly superb. But he will never sound quite as good as he does here, in my opinion.
2) The song selection. Amazing. This was the tour for Louder Than Hell so there are some tracks from that album, but surprisingly few, and they are all solid mainstays by now anyway like Gods Made Heavy Metal with a dude from the crowd playing guitar on stage with the band, which is a lot of fun. But otherwise, 85% of the tracks here come from the earlier material and represent songs that are uncommonly heard in a typical concert. Metal Daze, March for Revenge, Dark Avenger, Bridge of Death, Hatred and Gates of Valhalla represent some of the best music they have ever written, and they are hard to find in live performances, in addition to more mainstream vintage tunes like Battle Hymns and Blood of My Enemies that appear on here (two of my favourite songs). No other Manowar release has a total song selection as good as this.
3) The documentary. In my opinion, this is the best one of the bunch as well, and it's a nice balance between showing behind-the-scenes material, brief interviews with the band and crew, and actual live songs. Other releases are a bit more talky and even though interesting sometimes I wished that there was a bit more music. Also, every Hell on Earth doc is basically the same; girls, partying, bikes, funny behind the scenes moments. At least here it was more novel.
4) The concert itself. This was the first full-length concert the band released on video, and it's a great set for a combination of all the reasons listed above: it's a great venue and you get to see a lot of amusing footage from before the concert to get you ready, the band itself is in top form, and the songs are all first rate. The only thing you can really say against it is that it is briefer than normal because Manowar was not headlining, so it's only about 90 minutes or so. I prefer to think of it as efficiency, because when the show is over you feel pretty satisfied.
Finally, the audio is top notch and so is the video quality. On a technical level this is a very slick, well produced release. I did notice that my disk 1 had an audio sync drift that began about halfway through the runtime and was about a half second out of sync by the last track. I believe this was just a defective disc though. Anyway, the quality control on this is otherwise very good.
So, in short, this is really the best Manowar video release so far, although I think Day the Earth Shook, which is on it's way to me right now, might be the new crown champ. But certainly of all the Hell on Earth releases, this one from quite a few years ago is still the best. And, if you feel the age of the material makes you starved for some more recent tunes, you are in luck because there are a couple of bonus tracks from 2002's Warriors of the World concert in Germany (these appeared on Hell on Earth III, which finally caught up with then-recent releases, although it's slightly deceptive as there are only two live tracks from WOTW on that concert and they both appear here so you really don't need to buy Hell on Earth III if you just want newer tracks).
