After viewing the DVD, it is somewhat difficult to reflect on the Killadelphia as a live record in its own right. Although this release does give listeners a bit of flexibility as to how they may enjoy this live document, this audio CD would have better issued as a DualDisc in order to give the fans their money worth. For those that have already gotten the DVD, it seems a waste of money to repurchase the exact thing just so that one has the option of checking the record out in the car or the garage.|
Certainly, this recording is a very good example of what one can expect from Lamb Of God in a live setting and all of the fan favorites are here. As the band that led the charge of the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal, Lamb Of God has been thrust into the limelight and the sixteen songs on this disc prove why they're worthy of the attention they currently enjoy.
With the visuals removed, the music carries a bit less impact. As is the case with all live records, you can't match the experience of seeing the band tearing through their set in the flesh. Even so, decent production and a few twists and turns along the way make it worthy of joining the growing pile of Lamb Of God discs in your collection. Concert renditions of 'Laid To Rest', 'As The Palaces Burn' and 'Now You've Got Something To Die For' seethe with the intensity that this group is known for, with vocalist Randy Blythe taking control of the attendees with his patented, commanding presence as frontman.
But in the end, the timing of this release seems to be firstly and foremost, a shrewd marketing move. Although there is a much wider market for this release as opposed to the DVD, it simply makes no sense at all to pay for the same thing twice. Unless, however, you were one of the fortunate to have witnessed this excellent live set from one of America's brightest heavy metal hopes in person, as it happened in Killadelphia.
