I wont bother you with an introduction to this Italian band..but if you do not know them; imagine a weird hybrid between glassjaw and a hardcore band, with two vocalists and some crazy songs.

Earache did a nice job with this DVD. The presentation is very nice, featuring stylish animated menus. I cant say the sound quality of the live concerts is top-notch, but I think you`ll always keep that unless you are really dedicated to recording a live concert. Its much better then the average bootleg quality though. The quality of the videos is as good as it gets, so again kudos to Earache.
One of my favorite parts of the dvd are the making-ofs from the "Numb" and "Ketchup Suicide" album. Its always cool to see a band during the creative writing process. Personally I would have prefered to have one less live concert and more footage of the band on tour or something similar, because its always fun to see the band fool around. Things like that can really add "character" to a band. You would almost think you know the guys!
So is it worth getting? Definitly if you like the band..but for other people I would say try to pick it up if you can find it cheap, or lend it first from a friend.
