I like metal, any live concert that's come out sucks, with the exception of Black Symphony by Within Temptation. I hate hate hate this band but the recording is stellar, and the orchestral mixing is very 'progressive' so to speak. Nightwish's recent BD was just offensive for quality, so was Epica's retrospective (which wasnt even given DTS-HD MA, just a 640k AC3 track). A couple years back extreme symphonic metal band, Dimmu Borigr did a live orchestral performance that was slated to come out on BD but never materialized. A HDTV cap is floating around with 640k audio... this was mixed damn well. Its a real shame it probably wont see retail.

I like Opeth's at Royal Albert Hall on DVD. I think that is a fairly good recording, not epic, but pretty good.

Porcupine Tree (not metal) Anesthetize is one of my favorites on BD. I have Stephen Wilson's too.

I'm trying to collect more concert DVDs/BD but so few of my favorite acts put them out.

I have Queens of the Stone Age on DVD and the performance is good but the audio quality sucks donkey b*lls.

The White Stripes at Blackpool Lights on DVD is superb. Jeff Buckley on DVD is really good.

So far not too many BD of bands I really like.

I was watching Gojira's BD last night. It has very good PQ and fairly good SQ (for this kind of music). I am not super familiar with their work, so I can't comment on the performance per se.

I just picked up the one and only Jerry Garcia Band concert to be released on DVD. (No Blu Ray :cry: )

Just over a month after Brent Midlands passing the Grateful Dead had cancelled some fall shows in 1990. So Jerry and his band filled in for an emotional
show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre.

A great show with a bit of soul / gospel feel with Melvin Seals on organ and the back-up singers Jackie LaBranch and Gloria Jones.
A fantastic cover of Van Morrison's "And it Stoned Me". I could play this over and over... 8)

Steven Wilsons releases are brilliant, definitely both the best surround mixer and remixer working today. Theres better in both fields (very arguable though) but the two rarely translate well.


Highly recommend Nightwish's 2 albums that got DVD-As and proper surround mixes. Still the best multichannel symphonic mix ive ever heard, lightyears ahead of other bands. The only thing that comes close is some of After Forevers & Epica's SACDs and if it was ever released that Dimmu Borigr concert.

Septic Flesh released The Great Mass which IS a great album on DVD but it was only AC3, the mix is very good but due to the complexity of the music suffers from the AC3 encoding. Its a shame these bands only invested in surround during the mid to late 2000s mostly

NINE INCH NAILS - SOMEWHERE IN TIME. AMAZING SOUND AND THE VIDEO IS UNBELIEVABLE. VERY HARD AND NOT EVERYONES CUP OF TEA BUT IS POSSIBLY THE BEST QUALITY I'VE SEEN IN BLUERAY CONCERTS.


Totally agree, sound, performance and video quality all are phenomenal! It doesn't get any tighter than this. (It's actually called "Beside You in Time")

Talking Heads "Stop Making Sense" may not quite make the list for picture quality, but the the sound quality and performance are 11 out of 10. Same with Peter Gabriel "Secret World Tour".

I can't believe no one has mentioned James - Getting Away away with It all messed up - live.
Without a doubt the best live concert I've seen on disc. Musically, sonically and performance. It was their final concert, in their home town of Manchester, before they (briefly) disbanded. Tim Booth's (lead singer) engagement with the home town crowd (including his Mother) is compelling. He has the crowd from the first song. Production is great with split screens profiling the band, the audience and Tim Booth. I generally get bored with concert videos after a couple viewings, but not this one (nor the aforementioned John Mayall - 70th Birthday party). Everyone I've played this for has watched transfixed for the whole duration (and wanted more). It's that good!

Following that - David Gilmore: Live in Concert, a bit more obscure than Live at Albert Hall or Gdansk but smaller setting, great back up band(including strings), plus a killer acoustic version of Shine On You Crazy Diamond to open.

Well....and... Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere.....gotta like Steven Wilson!

I second the Dave Matthews with Tim Reynolds Blu-ray, it's my go to for showing off my setup :P the acoustic guitar really shines on a good system.
