This DVD series is simply one of the very best documentary videos ever made on heavy metal and about music and musicians in general, right up there with "Metal: a Headbanger's Journey." But the great thing about it is that it's over 4 hours long (if you include the bonus chunks). Absolutely fascinating stuff about death metal, heavy metal, the birth of the death metal scene, musicianship in this genre... and of course Cannibal Corpse!
You'll probably want to watch this over and over like I did, and keep picking up great stuff every time.
There are lots of interviews with heavy metal artists in many genres, including from the bands: Nevermore, Anthrax, Nile, Cynic, Kataklysm, Amon Amarth, Red Dahlia Murder, Monstrosity, Obituary... and many more, even the unlikely rapper Ice T. is there sharing his own thoughts about Cannibal Corpse (apparently he's a fan himself!).
The production is top-notch and the live performance DVD also has some great parts.
I recommend "Centuries of Torment" to any heavy metal or death metal fan, or anyone curious about music in general.
Warning: it will probably turn you in to a raving Cannibal Corpse fan by the end!

The first disk covers the band's history in exhaustive detail. It'll eliminate any confusion about who was in which band before they formed Cannibal. It gives a pretty balanced look behind the reasons for Chris getting kicked out of the band (both the band and Chris himself wanted Chris out). The history is organized by album; musicianship gets lots of coverage here.
The 2nd disk has various CC performances, couple of which are almost entire shows. The rest of the shows are little snippets, some being just one song. It does have all of the music videos, thus negating the need for pixel-y youtube versions. Plus it has Travis from Black Dahlia Murder singing "Stripped, Raped, and Strangled" with George (definitely the highlight).
The 3rd disk has lots of killer bonuses. It contains in-depth discussions of the artwork and the lyrics. The Metalocalypse bit should have been longer; there wasn't any footage of George recording his lines in the booth. The disk does have lots of entertaining tour stories (Rob almost blowing up with the RV, playing in Jonny Depp's Viper for Cher's son's birthday...), and also shows band members living out their personal lives. You may see George is many things, but I think you may see him as more of a peter-pan than a death metal vocalist after viewing this disk. Oh, and there's an amusing claymation short that incorporates a lot of the covers--butchered at birth being the "star" of the short.
In short, every hardcore CC fan (am I covering the entire fanbase here?) should have this! Great performances, and you'll get a deeper insight into the twisted minds of the band.
Centuries of Torment comes very close to that level, but unfortunately it is the live show part that falls ever so slightly short. Personally I've never been a fan of compilation live footage, with material from several different shows with constantly changing audio/video quality. If you prefer it like that, this is a nice DVD. It has clips from many different years and places with few tracks appearing twice. I was horrified when the main girth of the live shows, the Toronto 2006 show, started off in extremely poor sound quality. Luckily the sound picked up after a few songs. Maybe they had technical problems at the mixing/recording desk?
But the interviews and history told by the band themselves, and pretty much anyone who ever had something to do with the band, really makes up for the slight live show troubles. This is definitely one of the most thorough band DVDs I've seen, including the Evergrey one. Nothing is left untouched, and the Bonus Chunks part really goes out there with the bizarre tidbits - delicious!
Overall for the price (especially ordering from Finland, with the Euro being very strong vs. the US Dollar), this is simply an awesome package. The packaging artwork and holographic coating is also very cool, wrapping up this piece into one great release!
