Lair of the Minotaur: War Metal Battle Master (DVD)

Ready for some blood, violence, nudity, and extreme metal? Then you've come to the right place. War Metal Battle Master is the new DVD from Lair of the Minotaur, which focuses on the video of their song of the same name. Apparently the original uncut version of this video has been banned in 31 countries, and once you watch it you'll realize why, as it contains a heaping amount of gore, violence, and naked women. With the band pummeling your senses with their brutal death metal/hardcore attack, sword wielding warriors attack each other, hacking off limbs and heads, while buxom vampires then start to feed on the corpses as well as the living. If you are into gore and naked breasts, this will be fun stuff, and horror movie buffs surely will get a kick out of all this. In addition to the uncensored clip, there is also the edited version that aired on MTV's Headbangers Ball, a making of featurette (featuring plenty of the naked babes covering themselves in fake blood), and a host of live clips of the band shot over the last few years from around the world. The audio and video quality of these are mostly of a bootleg quality, but you almost come away with the feeling that you were there in the sweaty mosh pits with the audience. "Carnage Fucking Carnage" is interesting in that they edited segments from multiple shows together (New York, Boston, Baltimore, etc), each one having a different feel but it all works. The band completely crushes on a behemoth version of "Behead the Gorgon", taped in France in 2007, one of the heaviest songs you will ever hear. Overall, this is a healthy dose of live Lair of the Minotaur, plus all the fun that goes along with the music video.
