Overview

This disc documents a concert from heavy metal legends Megadeth. The DVD offers a standard full-frame transfer. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Stereo. There are neither subtitles nor closed captions on this release. Supplemental materials include backstage footage, interviews with the band, and film of the band working in the studio. The band performs two-dozen of their songs including "Wake Up Dead," "Symphony of Destruction," and "Sweating Bullets." Fans of the band and metal heads in general will appreciate this disc, but there is little here for the average DVD consumer.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
When Megadeth recorded Rude Awakening, the band’s first live disc, they couldn’t have imagined that it might also be their last. However, after guitarist Dave Mustaine damaged a nerve in his arm early in 2002, he announced that he was walking away from live performance to rehabilitate. The injury was devastating for Mustaine, who, after being booted from Metallica, went on to form one of the fastest, angriest bands in history. With a combination of mind-blowing guitar licks and darkly satiric lyrics, Megadeth rose to the forefront of heavy metal. This two-disc set is packed with extra features, including interviews, b-roll footage, and a rare studio recording of "The World Needs a Hero." If Rude Awakening turns out to be Megadeth’s final performance, they’ve gone out in a blaze of glory.
