Metal Retardation (DVD)

If you ever wondered how George Fisher of Cannibal Corpse would answer the question "If you eat enough bubble gum can you blow a bubble when you fart?" than this is the movie for you. Over an hour and a half of such interviews with many stupid answers to dumb questions is what this disc is all about. It does show some of the bands in a very different light but the bulb is burning out as you realize that the title of this movie is most aptly named. It was a real test of durability to make it through the whole disc.

There is also two telephone interviews on the disc with Darkthrone and Venom. If you want to see a slide show of women in various states of undress while listening to these bands talk about the metal scene than this one is a must have.

Bands such as King Diamond, TYR, Leaves' Eyes, Nevermore, Finntroll and many others show you a side that well frankly, I could have lived without knowing about. This is a curiosity piece at best and one that I doubt will ever get played again. It took 2 pots of coffee to stay awake for the whole thing and unless I find a night that I cannot fall asleep then this one will remain on the shelf. Do yourself a favor and go check out the many bits that are already on Youtube before investing in this disc.
