||The heaviness of Lamb
of God is one of the main traits of the band. “Terror and
Hubris” shows you what the heaviness does to the crowd at live
shows. I was fortunate enough to see one of the live shows that’s
on this DVD. The 2003 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival show
was crazy. The pit attacked, after the singer told the crowd to mosh;
it was INSANE! I doubt anyone walked out of it without at least a
few bruises. They know how to get the pit moving at will. Nearly an
hour long, this disc explains why these guys have come to the front
of the metal scene so quickly, with only two professional albums.
It’s impossible to not have you head nodding to the music. Its
heavy, its rhythmic, and brutal as hell. The intensity the band show
on “Terror and Hubris” does don’t stop, its inexorable.
Four live songs, two music videos and the rest is behind the scenes
footage, interviews and other stuff. Lamb of God explains about their
band and what they are about. One extra on the disc that I had to
mention is the winner of the fan video contest. People had to get
their whole family involved doing their own music video for “11th
Hour”. Seeing parents jamming with their son (the contest winner)
was an awesome site. I got a kick out it. The only thing I would add
to DVD is to make it longer. An hour is great, but if they added another
half hour of shows or music videos this disc would be fantastic. It's
a great effort overall, especially for their first DVD.
