Slipknot is back with their new DVD, titled "Voliminal," a movie that offers a never before seen look at the band on its most recent tour in support of the "Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses" album.
The movie is a combination of live concert footage and documentary style home movies. Unfortunately, it doesn�t do either very well and is excruciatingly boring and pointless. The concert footage in the movie has at best, bootleg quality audio, and the home movies offer no real insight into the life of a band on the road.
The only redeeming thing about this DVD is the second disc of bonus material which includes interviews with all nine band members, music videos and live footage of the band. The interviews with each band member are quite intriguing and the live footage offers the audio quality that disc 1 fails to deliver.
This DVD will only appeal to hardcore Slipknot fans, with very little to offer the casual metal fan.
