What was Roadrunner Records supposed to do after the label corralled 56 musicians from 44 different bands spanning the label's entire 25-year history to release one groundbreaking album, called Roadrunner United: The All-Star Sessions? Simple. Throw one helluva party!

The label did just that, holding a party complete with an all-star performance by artists once and currently signed to the label, as well as friends of the company!

Almost three years to the day after the now-legendary concert held at the Nokia Theater in Times Square in New York City on December 15, 2005. The concert will be available on a double DVD set.

Roadrunner United The Concert captures the festive intensity of the evening. A house band, featuring members of core Roadrunner acts such as Slipknot, Sepultura and Machine Head, performed hits and classics culled from the entirety of the Roadrunner catalogue. Some of the highlights included Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor performing "Bother" with Life of Agony's Keith Caputo; former Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach dueting with current vocalist Howard Jones for KsE's "My Last Serenade"; an assortment of frontmen handling vocals for staple songs like Slipknot's "(Sic)" and "Surfacing," Machine Head's "Davidian," King Diamond's "Abigail," Sepultura's "Refuse/Resist," Type O Negative's "Black No. 1," Soulfly's "Eye For an Eye" as well as four songs from the Roadrunner United: The All-Star Sessions album. The double disc set also includes a 75-minute documentary, complete with interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, making it an even more intimate, fan-friendly experience!

If you want to see something that wasn't even considered before in the music/metal/rock industry, because it was probably considered to be too much hard work and near to the impossible, then buy this DVD. From start to finish it had me head banging from start to finish in my lounge. It actually makes you feel like your a part of the gig itself and all you want to do is to jump into your tv, grab the mic from Rob Flynn and start singing along with them.

This concert is a perfect example of what would happen if you took your fav. Drummer from one band fav. Guitarist from another and so on and so on.. You get a heavy metal monster album that fans would only dream of. But in this occasion it actually happened and some of the greatest metal musicians came together to perform the RR united concert in L.A. Baring in mind this probably wouldn't of happened had the album of been a flop . But it didn't and was a success globally and at this one concert they were able to get most of the artists together Current and Past to do the album in its glory .

Is It Worth it? In my view yes it is to see that many artists come together not only for the album but for a concert aswell is a rare thing to happen.

And The Price? Under £15? You bet that's worth it considering ONE artist music dvds can be as high as £25
