Tierra Santa: Las Mil y Una Noches (DVD)

After releasing five studio albums in five years, including 2003's adventurous Indomable, one of Spain's leading progressive-metal bands (whose name means "holy land") has finally captured its live show for the whole world to see. By making recent forays into the American market, the band must be hoping U.S. metal fans se hablan Español, as Las Mil y Una Noches spans 17 songs recorded outdoors on a huge stage in August 2003 at the Festival Lorca Rock in Murcia, Spain -- where the band shared the stage with the likes of the Scorpions and Uriah Heep. Even if you don't speak Spanish, there are enough heavy riffs, rock-star poses and memorable melodies here to satisfy prog/power-metal fans. Quality-wise, Las Mil y Una Noches is a bit grainy, with lots of reds and blues courtesy of the stage lighting. Plus, there are no extras. But the sweeping shots of the crowd from the stage and the sight of five guys (well, four guys – drummer Iñaki looks like he's just collecting a paycheck) having the time of their lives banging their heads make viewing Las Mil y Una Noches a worthwhile – not to mention cultural, yeah, cultural – experience.
