One of Swedens first death/thrash metal bands were formed in 1986. After recording some demos and playing a lot of gigs, they recorded their first album "The Awakening" in 1989 which was followed by two more albums. Then the band was laid to rest. But now after taking a longer break they are back, stronger and louder than ever. Nine years later the legendary death/thrash metal band Merciless has returned with a new self-titled album. On May 27th 2003 their furious power was captured at a concert Stockholm/Sweden.

This 2-disc special DVD edition includes the full concert plus extra material, such as other concert recordings from Stockholm in 1999 and one more from Hultsfred in 2003, offstage material, promovideos and more.

The live DVD has a great show with a setlist consisting of songs from all their released albums. The sound is fantastic, but surely dubbed in the studio later on. This DVD is well worth to get.

The documentary DVD contains some bonus material, showing the band backstage with an interview and fun stuff. You'll find old promo videos ("Pure Hate" and "Cold Eyes Of Grey") and live shows with a more poor quality.
Usually I would call it a waste of space, but on this DVD it's a good thing to find a biography and a discography, too. Since Merciless don't have a website, it gives you some info about the band. After a few searches we had to give up, the promised image gallery is not on the DVD or we just couldn't find a hidden path for it...Maybe they mean the few pictures in the very poor booklet. Well, I wouldn't even call it a booklet, since it's just a cover to open up and there you find the pictures. This is a bit lame. Especially because Merciless don't have a website they could at least have added some pages where the band could have written some words for the fans, i.e.

The DVD is subtitled into English, German, French and Italian.
Running time live: 70 min, running time Extra Footage: 90 min.
