Erm, I have a question about this DVD:

Who does distribution in Europe for this item?

I work in a cd store, that's why I want to know.

Something like Surburban, Zomba or Bertus?

great dvd. it really showed what it took to get the music out to us. i am actually taken aback by the amount of content on this dvd. ive bought other dvds of my favorite bands with nowhere near the amount of content. props to you.

btw i am a new poster here. i found a promo copy of dissimulate from an idiot "friend" in 2002 and immediately fell in love with the album. i then tried hunting down the 2 disc re-release of the self titled album which proved to be rather difficult. but after about 3 months i found a place in OZ that would ship it here. the wait and searching was well worth it. now i want to buy another copy of dissimulate so i can have the cd insert instead of the promo cardboard sleeve that my idiot "friend" had "thrown-out" to me.

btw some questions if i can ask them here. new album? new tours? i really want to see you guys in the US. also when will you be needing a second guitar player?? i think i am ready!!!!!

I that i previously hadn't seen it listed on their site before so here ya go .....


Page the 2 Disc Self Titled is listed

hey guys , ive recieved an email from earache webstore apologizing and it says official release for uk is 19th april but as the dvd is ntsc / region 0 you americans can order from the uk/euro store too!!!!!!!!!

they basically said

"The release date has moved a lot because of unforeseen troubles. There has been a few technical setbacks but all is now sorted for the 19th" - therefore i should recieve my copy on the monday because pre-orders are sent out earlier.

i also re-rang a few shops such as mvc/virgin/hmv and smaller music stores , all saying its special order , so it looks like there hasnt been mass demand for the berzerker dvd.

Got my copy last night.
Looks even better than the version I saw a week or two before the deadline for making it was up. Damn, but there's a lot of footage of me falling asleep....!
You are all going to love it.

Saw it last night too. The live footage is exceptional and I'm sure will disappoint nobody. The making of the albums were informative and entertaining (Val cracked me up) and the bass player is so hot, i want to make sex with him.
Well worth the wait if you ask me :D

OH MY GOD , i finished watching the dvd not to long ago and dear lord its everything you guys could expect

- It starts off with a earache intro which like the earache dvd uses a loop of spheres of madness by decapitated which is an amazing song but i tell you certain sections looped and you want to kill yourself

- Then the menu , and for me i just went from top to bottom , watching everything , therefore i started on the live show , taken from there nottingham uk gig
Opens with the immense forever but things really kick off with betrayal then the mayhem commenses , everything you expect speed , accuracy , energy obviously i could talk about each individual part but YOU MUST SEE THIS FOR YOURSELF

Im picking out favourite parts

- For the live songs (not bootleg section) the audio from the nottingham gig is always used but for some songs they have taken video clips from there 100s of tours and on Disregard a clip from a different gig the bassist punches this guy in the face who was asking for it LITERALLY he was pointing to his nose , and the punch is done the second the song kicks in ,so it works together pretty well .

- When Incarnate Solvent Abuse comes in ,its a different gig all together , Its old aswell , as there is 5 members , and the masks arnt particularly developed , luke can be seen adjusting his mask whilst singing because the spikes are sticking into his face

-Then some touring clips with Labrat and in there is some funny playfights where the berzerker bassist is against the labrat singer , only thing is the bassist is blindfolded

-Back to the Nottingham gig "February" is performed to such a high standard with one of my particular "live" favourites being "Mono Grind" the attack of that song is brutal

I do realise i havent spoke off ALL the songs but im picking bits out, but trust me ALL of them are outstanding

-Onto bootlegs , cool to see mask swap arounds and more members + Tony from "Nile" drums on corporal jigsore quandary , he is also filmed practising it on a chair and it seems that the band have simply come to him and hes learnt it on the spot

- A real stand out part for me are the rehearsals for "Pain" and "Reality" , just the band practising , on reality the drummer is the cameras main focus , he also is filmed quite a bit in pain , and FUCKING HELL is all i have to say , me being a fellow drummer it is a particular favourite for me.

- Then the making of self titled , my main conclusion of this is EVERYTHING that could go wrong/negatively DID , Lukes trip to Canada was complete bullshit , nothing but crossed wires and lies , But there is guy called Val who helped luke so so much , it was disheartening to see so many things go wrong but also very inspirational to see such drive and passion , it reaffirmed for me what music is all about , seeing the passion has even inspired me to better myself
Val was there for Luke constantly trying to lift his spirits , but its hard when everything fucks up
Val does a lot of singing for Luke and this guy called Patrick plays a lot of the riffs but sadly luke used NONE of what these guys acheived on the final mix

-Back in Australia , a guy called Sam pops up (current bassist) and he offers up some riffs/ideas and tries to lay down some of Lukes ideas and manages it but is pushed to what seems like human limits (a must see for guitarists- a lot is focused on guitar )

-LUKE IS A SLAVE DRIVER because "DO IT AGAIN" can be heard many times , these guys are pushed pushed pushed then "Taped" haha .

-2 more guys accompany sam called ed and jason all being driven driven driven by Luke , there fueled by lukes passion and enthusiasm for the music and there eagerness is tested . To be fair to luke though his lack of patience is due to the complete letdown of what he thought were musicians helping musicians and not money grabbers

So much went wrong , nearly everything........................................ ........Luke has been extremely unlucky but there has been glimmers of hope as he did find accomplished musicians , so there is 2 sides to the story , its just frustration then more added frustration then you include frustration/lies/letdown you sort of get an idea GO BUY THE DVD

- Then onto making of dissimulate , this time it is smoother and more organised , lukes lack of experience with computers /mixing was what caused such frustration so this time he wasnt going to be the sound engineer , but mid-way the sound engineer has to leave due to family issues (Watching the dvd its like - is the berzerker cursed) , therefore luke is left to mix the album which he successfully does

- There is a crazy part where the you see the drummer drumming the final takes on dissimulate then they take out the trigger sounds , its unreal , very strange

-Both albums were produced at lukes home studio

-Then some interesting interviews , with band , designer , bit on making masks and a part of the ultimate fan who has THE MOST berzerker stuff ive ever seen

What ive posted is still vague compared to the detail this dvd goes into

It really is an inspiration for all musicians

The masks i now believe are vital to the performance of berzerker , human image just gets in the way of things , the bassist/ex guitarist sam makes me laugh cause he looks like an accountant , but he has one of the worst inner demons , this guy goes crazy and has a voice to go with it

I listen to the albums , self titled especially in such a different way , this dvd gets very personal , and when you finish you feel like you know the band

i got my dvd through the post five minutes before i had to leave for a 9 hour work shift this morning so it kept me going all day, i've nearly watched all the dvd now though and it is really really really amazing, the whole passion for the music is portrayed and the live shows to watch gives you quite a buzz and generally it gives you a whole better understanding for what the berzerker are all about and stand for. incredible.
