5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Wizard Nov. 18 2007
Format:DVD
Zakk Wylde is unbelievable again!! The only bad thing about this DVD is the use of camera tricks. They are pretty bad, like the ones you can do with your home Camera.
Anyways, the standard siren stars the show off with some backstage and pre-show footage. This time he comes out with a polka dot Flying V. Fantastic!!! This is where the camera effects come in...too bad.
Stoned and Drunk, great opener and into Destruction Overdrive is great!
Get ready for some pick squealin'!!!! There is no shortage in this, as any of his shows.
Been A Long Time, one of my favorites is absolutely fantastic!! After a few great guitar lessons during In this River, Suicide Messiah, Demise Of Sanity Zakk brings out his classical guitar and sits cross legged in front of the drum kit. Zakk does some guitar noodling right into the blues some more noodling and then Zakk Solo stuff. All the while drinking beer Wylde then brings classic Rhodes to the stage with Diary Of A Madman and right into Mama I'm coming Home with the crowd singing!! Another fav of mine, Spoke In The Wheel finished the acoustic set with some electric soloing with the crowd. Stillborn is unbelievable with a huge guitar solo intro. Ends with Genocide Junkies ends it all.
Would have loved to hear Berserker's and Graveyard Deciples, but you can't please everyone with the amount of great songs he writes.
Overall, I have to give this a 9 out of 10. Losing a bit for the camera effects. You will Love this!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy. Nov. 5 2006
Format:DVD
Zakk Wylde. What a mountain man. He drinks approximately the amount of beer it would take to fill a large space shuttle and he can still get up there and rock. The acoustic jam on this dvd is amazing. Zakk Wylde and an acoustic guitar. I love it when he starts to play Diary of a Madman and he points up to the sky as a tribute to Randy Rhoads. And then, the entire crowd starts singing along to Mama I'm Comin' Home. It's the highlight of the dvd. Other highlights include his version of Stoned and Drunk which, despite what I've heard people say about it, I think it's great. I love it when he does a big "OOHHHH YEAAAHH!" He must have the best "Oh yeah" known to mankind. It's great. When he plays In This River, it's a really emotional performance that is a really nice tribute to Dimebag Darrell. I apologize if I spelt that wrong. Also, when they're playing Genocide Junkies, he begins to throw his amps into the crowd and the amps go for a nice little crowd surf. It's a wicked DVD definately worth buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stop with the Fx July 15 2010
By sunni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Not sure why the producers, editors, or whoever feel compelled to use these irritating visual effect in concert vids. It's painfully annoying and you never get the sense you're watching a concert. It's like watching a cheesy video on Mtelevision. The audio is ok but far from great. The extras and London show are nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zakk Delivers The Goods Aug. 29 2006
By Samuel G. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Zakk Wylde is an easy target for anyone who wants to criticize the heavy metal/hard rock guitar stereotype. But the guy is obviously for real - he's no stereotype, he's an archetype, and for anyone who appreciates pull-out-all-the-stops rock guitar, he is the complete package. This DVD is the single best produced hard rock concert video I've seen. The band manages to be raw and polished at the same time - not an easy trick. This is an improvement over "Boozed Broozed & Broken Boned" in every way - and that was a glorious sonic assault.

Zakk has obviously paid attention to his critics and has made a few changes without selling out at all. He relies far less on pinch harmonics in his guitar work, he's toned down the stage profanity which was previously far overdone, the band is tight and well rehearsed, the audience participation is used to best possible effect, the set list draws on his strongest Black Label Society material, and he's even increased his already-exceptional prowess on his instrument. The acrobat has a few new stunts!

The "intro jam" sets the tone well, opening with the band attacking their instruments, and they don't let up. It's not until the first pause comes in "Been A Long Time" that you realize just how much noise you've been exposed to so far. When this band takes a pause for a beat, it's the most solid proof yet that the note with the most impact is not a note at all - it's silence: the pause. The "Iron Man Interlude" is really just the first few bars of the Sabbath song. It would really be something if Black Label Society took the Dream Theater route and recreated an entire Sabbath album - or just did a set of covers. I'd plop down god money for that.

In This River slows things down a bit and gives Zakk a softer texture to play over. I wouldn't insult the song by calling it a "ballad," it's just a bit lighter than everything that's happened to that point in the Paris concert. Suicide Messiah has what I consider to be the heaviest guitar tone I've heard, and the band has real fun with it. I don't think I've ever seen Zakk smile onstage, but in the postlude to Suicide Messiah he's clearly having real fun and great interaction with Nick Catanese. Just to show the DVD is not "prettied up" in post-production, there's a point in the postlude where Zakk is about to switch pickups and use the pickup switch as a kind of tonal/volume modulation, and the volume on the pickup he switches to is clearly not set right, and he has to make a quick correction. Catanese gives him a bit of a poke for fun when the mistake happens. A nice moment to see between musicians.

The acoustic solo set is very casual, with Zakk just jamming and throwing in some old riffs (including a bar from Pride & Glory's "Machine Gun Man"). A set for true guitar freaks only, as subtlety is the least used weapon in Zakk's arsenal. The set finishes as heavy as it started with Fire It Up, Stillborn and Genocide Junkies. Riffing overkill from start to finish. In addition to the complete concert filmed in Paris, there are 4 tracks taken from a London show - also very strong, but nothing new - different performances of "Been A Long Time," "Suicide Messiah," a take from "Stillborn Jam" and "Genocide Junkies."

Disc two features a better than average road documentary of the band and three videos, but it's the concerts that merit this DVD a 5 star rating.

One thing I thought was very cool - Zakk brings a bunch of people up onstage from the audience at one point and straps his guitar on one of them. The guy actually plays pretty well, and obviously has the time of his life getting the unexpected opportunity to jam with Black Label Society.

Great DVD, a bargain at the MSRP - and please, people, if you haven't seen it please don't comment. The whole 357 group issue is addressed on Zakk's website, and I'm sorry if a few unscrupulous businessmen scammed some Zakk fans, but that has nothing to do with the quality of this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Going Wylde In Paris Jan. 2 2007
By Sky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In some of my other music DVD reviews, I take the tact of applying a set of standards to a release and establishing how the DVD in question measures up. Let me say in advance that when I take this tact, it usually means that I was disappointed in the release. Such is the case with Black Label Society: The European Invasion - Doom Troopin' Live.

A memo should go out to all bands and music DVD producers that says at minimum: "1) Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards. 2) The musical performances within should represent the talent that made the studio recorded CDs sell. 3) Theatrics are very cool too, as long as you can pull them off without deterioration in the quality of the music."

Let's break it down then for Doom Troopin':

1 - "Music DVD's should be produced to the highest standards." - The picture quality in Doom Troopin' is average. Look, I understand that it's more expensive for the band to record in high def, but Doom Troopin' looked like it was recorded in the '80s. The picture just wasn't up to the standards set by some of the better releases of the past few years (click on my name above to see my Listmania List of The Best Rock DVDs With High Quality A/V).

Further contributing to a below average experience, the director has chosen to indulge in what he feels is "cool production" versus giving the viewer a front row seat to the performance. There are a lot split screens and funky video effects (you know, like image stretching and goofy '70s-like animated image overlays). This kind of junk really ruins the illusion of having a front row seat to the show.

The sound is okay. You get your choice between Dolby Stereo, Dolby 5.1 or DTS. But the mix is way below average. Either the producers of Doom Troopin' were novices or their equipment needs a big-time upgrade. I've viewed some recent rock music DVDs (again see the Listmania list that I referred to earlier) that sound as good as being at the show; a good recording shakes the foundations of my house through my 5.1 system but sounds as clear as if the band was playing live. Doom Troopin' sounds almost like it was recorded with the bass levels way down; it almost sounds like an amplified version of the way a live concert would sound from the lobby just outside the performance auditorium.

The one bright side to the video was that the shots actually lasted long enough to take them in before changing angles. Too often you find entire music DVDs where the visual often jumps around similar to the music video format of "4 seconds then cut to another view". Doom Troopin' gives you some good, long lasting looks.

2 - "The musical performances within should represent the talent that made the studio recorded CDs sell." - You say, "Eddie Van Halen," and everyone knows who you're talking about. You say, "Zakk Wylde," and everyone goes, "who?" Zakk Wylde is one of the best...no wait...IS the best hard rock guitarist on the circuit today. His riffs are heavy and melodic and his solos are complex and precise. He definitely brings his guitar playing talent to his live shows. And all of the guys in the band prior to hitting the stage must have huddled and committed to each other to go out and play the music true to the studio versions of the songs. All of the tracks on Doom Troopin' are performed very well (albeit with some jamming that gets a bit long in the tooth after a while).

And Zakk's voice is as good as it is on the CDs. Zakk's singing voice has the same nasally sound familiar with Layne Staley (Alice in Chains), Ryan McCombs (Drowning Pool formerly of SOiL) and...um...Ozzy!. Zakk's not quite as good as the three aforementioned fellows, but he gets the job done.

3 - "Theatrics are very cool too, as long as you can pull them off without deterioration in the quality of the music." - The theatrics were minimal in the show, and that's the way BLS is. They're about the music. Zakk, John DeServio (the bass player that looks just like Zack), Nick Catanese (guitar) and Craig Nunenmacher (drums) just go out and play the music. Pretty much the only attempt at theatrics was Zack stopping into his pub between each song to down a pint of ale. Some dude makes a guest appearance to help pump up the crowd, crowd-surf and sing along with some of the songs, but it's never really clear who the heck it is.

One other note is that a live performance includes getting the audience charged up. Man, was this audience charged up! Gotta hand it to BLS for establishing a loyal, rowdy following.

All in all...it's a decent performance with a very very distracting choice in video production. If you are a dedicated BLS fan that for whatever reason hasn't made it to an actual performance, Doom Troopin' is no substitute. If you don't care about a quality viewing experience then Doom Troopin' should work just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bleed Black Label Aug. 15 2006
By Ken Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Doom Troopin' Live: The European Invasion" finds Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society in Rock solid form once again. The second DVD from the guitarist is a lot better than the "Boozed, Bruised and Broken Boned" release from a couple of years ago in terms of both camera work and overall production. "BBBB" seemed to be a little too thrown together and lost my interest at a number of turns while this new release had me from start to finish. Clearly they were paying a little more attention to details and quality this time around. This video finds BLS in support of their Artemis Records album "Mafia" and shortly after the album tour completed the band would leave the label to join Roadrunner Records. Fortunately for all Chapter members the good folks at Eagle Vision captured a killer set of tunes on film when the group hit Europe and give it to them in vibrant color. The first DVD of the two disk set features a long performance from Paris (with the Paris Chapter as they call it) along with just under a handful of songs from the London Astoria (noted with an "*" below). As the casual BLS fan I was happy to find the songs I enjoyed most present here such as "Stillborn" along with newer, quality numbers like "Suicide Messiah" and "In This River". Wylde dedicates this particular song to his fallen Brother Dimebag Darrell Abbott and truly rips the strings like never before with this number. Clearly, Dime is not someone who will easily be forgotten especially when it comes to Zakk and their Friendship. The set list is also a great mix and the band is very energetic throughout. I caught one of the shows when it hit New York, and don't remember enjoying it as much as I enjoyed catching it on this DVD. Perhaps the band was not having a good night or maybe it was me as I recalled mixed opinion on that show and none of that is found on this film. That difference alone made it a worthy viewing session for me and I am sure his fans will feel the exact same way. Since that show the band has added James Lomenzo (formerly of White Lion and Pride & Glory) on the bass as he joins Craig Nunenmacher (drums) and Nick Catanese (guitar and vocals) to make sure that Zakk has a powerful group along with him. It's perhaps the tightest I have seen BLS in some time.

DVD2: "Backstage Pass" - a 50 minute documentary. Music Videos: Suicide Messiah, In This River, Fire It Up, making of Suicide Messiah. I love documentaries like this and this particular one is a bunch of tied together segments with interview footage and commentary while live footage is show. There are also some treats to enjoy as the band tours some other countries and takes some time off. Of the videos, I would have to say that "In This River" is the most powerful as it's loaded with imagery and references to Dime.

This is the DVD that all of Zakk's Chapter Members have been waiting for as its loaded with music and interesting features that will all serve as a nice herald for the new album from the band. Be sure to check this one out if you are one of the people who "Bleeds Black Label".

4.0 out of 5 stars The European Chapter Review Nov. 5 2010
By William Garrity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As a long time fan of Zakk Wylde I looked forward to this Blu Ray release. I was not disappointed. The show is all that you could want with a great audience particpation piece on stage! The guitar playing is up front and diverse. The interaction with the fans was hugely entertaining and shows how this band appreciates thier audience. (You have to see the guitar player from the crowd!) The sound quality is excellent. The special features are extensive as is the beer consumption evident throughout the video! Good music, good visuals and interesting features. What else could you want?
