DVD Review: Vision of Disorder – Dead in New York
Vision of Disorder
Dead in New York
Released: November 16, 2008
Label: Koch Records
A couple years ago Long Island’s Vision of Disorder briefly reunited for a handful of shows. The events were filmed by Bill Yukich, who was granted full access to the band, both on and off the stage.
The Dead in New York DVD includes shows from Long Island and Worcester, Massachusetts from 2006. “It shows everything from the mayhem of the material with people getting knocked out during the crazy breakdowns along with insane crowd sing-a-longs” explains guitarist Matthew Baumbach.
He does not exaggerate. Vision of Disorder’s performance grabs you by the throat and throttles you senseless. The crowd in attendance is left a tired, bruised, and bloodied mess, and we are reminded of just how dominant this hardcore/thrash band was… and is.
The production of this DVD is awesome. The audio is crisp and clear, and the fast cuts between multiple cameras helps to convey the energy of the show. Nothing is lost. Crank up the volume loud enough, and it’s almost like you were there.
The special features, including a brief history of the band and behind the scenes footage, is pretty cool and you get to know a little bit more about the band chemistry and what makes them tick.
It was recently announced that Vision of Disorder is reuniting to record another album. This DVD gives us a forceful reminder of what we’re in for, and what we’ve been missing… a major ass-kicking.
