Recollection 2: Relapse Video Collection

Year: 2004
Format: DVD
Label: Relapse
Genre: [Heavy Metal/Death Metal/Grindcore/Hardcore/Metalcore/Hard Rock/Instrumental]
Overall Rating: 7.5
Music: 7.0
Production: 8.5


Relapse Records' popular Recollection DVD series has reached to its second installment. This time there are seventeen videos full of attitude and energy. Recollection 2 features performances from 15 different Relapse artists. Maybe your favourite is included...

As a lot of different bands perform on this video collection, there isn't a single genre to describe all the music... Therefore this DVD is quite diverse and it should have something for everyone (it also works as a way to discover new bands). However, this is also a downside. If there are lots of different styles, someone might only find few songs that he/she likes.

The bands that I liked the most on this DVD were Nile, Amorphis, Neurosis and Alchemist. These would be my listening recommendations to you (but you might have different taste in music, so you're free to disagree). To my surprise, there was also one experimental song on this collection. Vidnaobmana had a nice instrumental tune (Skin Strip), where a bow was used to play guitar (unfortunately the high pitched sounds started to annoy after a while ruining the whole song for me).

Production varies a little (regarding the sound). As all of the music is mixed & mastered at different places, this is excusable. The worst sounds by far were on Today Is the Day's video (they were inferior). The overall production on this album is quite commendable. Especially the picture quality is excellent (very clear). Actually I was a little surprised by the high picture quality of the videos.

Overall this DVD is a good buy, if you're a fan of these bands... But if there are only few bands you like, you might want to use your money on something else. The overall sound of this collection resides on the heavier styles (hardcore, grindcore and death metal). If you're a fan of basic heavy metal, there aren't many songs you'll like (maybe Amorphis and Neurosis).
