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!
