tour was professionally filmed for a 90-minute DVD, to be released later this year via Nuclear Blast
"We haven't shot a live DVD or CD since our 'Live In London'
release and we've had two killer albums since then," commented Chuck Billy
. "We thought it would be cool to put out a live DVD/CD focusing on the last three records ('The Gathering'
, 'The Formation Of Damnation'
and 'Dark Roots Of Earth'
) mixed in with a good amount of classics, too. Last time we recorded anything live in America was for 'Live At The Fillmore'
on the West Coast. This time we thought we'd give the East Coast a chance to show the world how crazy and loud they can be."

01. Rise Up

03. Burnt Offerings
04. Native Blood
