Hell On Earth Part I

Rated 3.79/5 (75.71%) (14 Votes)

Well, this sure isn't your usual live video. "Hell On Earth Part I" is not as much the Manowar live experience as it is the Manowar TOUR experience. The majority of the video shows the guys partying, in autograph sessions, in interviews, preparing before the shows, shooting a video, and doing some tourism as well. There's also a lot of on-stage footage but very little complete songs on this video. Rather, you'll see party break loose on stage, and of course the groupies getting on stage, sometimes baring it for their idols. Sure thing is that those guys can't complain of not having enough women around them. Let's just say that I hope the chicks in the video are single, otherwise their boyfriends must have been going ballistic. "This video contains nudity and explicit situations." hehe.

Really the only deception here is the little musical contents, I hope it's in their plans to have a "real" live video out sometime, just so those who don't get the chance to catch them live can enjoy the experience on their TV, because judging from the show footage on the video, it seems like those guys kick serious ass live. The formula is interesting though, as you essentially follow a bunch of party animals for almost two hours. One may wonder how long they'll be able to keep up with that lifestyle! Sure thing is that they're not wasting their time on this Earth. A very interesting video. Recommended.
