Paradise Lost - The Anatomy of Melancholy (2008) [DVD9 NTSC]

Title: The Anatomy of Melancholy
Artist: Paradise Lost
Genre: Gothic Metal
Release Date: 23rd May 2008
Label: Century Media Records

.: Tracklist :

As the band is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, this is the perfect point in time to release this recording. It is entitled ëThe Anatomy of Melancholyí and is available in several formats. The edition I received contains both the 2 DVDs and the 2 CDs containing the concert. Already the packaging is way beyond the ordinary and comes embalmed in a precious digi book. The artwork was again designed by the Greek artist Seth, who also created the illustrations for ëIn Requiemí. The figure on the front cover seems to be an abstract form of an anatomic model with two faces, maybe to visualize, the melancholyís more than just one facet. If we fold out the digi, thereís a b/w picture showing the band at the concert. I think the decision not to use a coloured one instead was very wise. It just appears more precious in my opinion. The inside also reveals more beautiful illustrations and a detailed booklet with liner notes to every track by the band, giving some interesting insights.

The track list contains 21 tracks in total including one additional which is not mentioned and obviously wasnít planned to appear on it but Iím glad it did after all. Songs from almost every album the band has ever released, landed on the list, starting with the live premier of ëThe Enemyí over ëSo Much is Lostí and ëNo Celebrationí to such classics like the beautiful ëGothicí and ëForever Failureí.

Letís have a look at the visual part now, which is especially important for such a release, because when the recording and therefore the picture is bad it can spoil the whole fun of watching a concert DVD. In case of the PARADISE LOST DVD, thereís nothing to complain and I really took a closer look at the picture but it always remained sharp and clear, especially important as the pictureís often dark and some encoders tend to make the picture grainy in such situations. The cuts during the concert are not too fast, so you really get the chance to see what happens before the camera skips to the next perspective. As for the performance: The joy of playing on the bandís side is really sensible and itís just great fun to watch them treating their instruments. Nick delivers a remarkable vocal performance and while performing ëGothicí he almost grunts as deep as he did on the same-titled album back in 1991 and it was a big surprise for the fans as well as the band hasnít played this one live in years.

It doesnít spoil anything to say that the mood was absolutely fantastic during the whole show, seeing the people mosh, clapping their hands or sing along with Nick who had a good grip on the audience right away. He just needed to make a simple gesture or demand and the audience did as it was told. The spotlights bathed the whole scenery in powerful darker colours. Whatís to say about the sound? Well at least to my ears it sounds amazing. The engineers put a lot of effort in working out the live atmosphere of that evening without neglecting a clear, differentiating sound of the music. I would say they found the right balance. One can feel the stream of emotions running through the venue and youíre feeling like being in the middle of it all, going along with the sound and stuff like that and you just canít sit still while watching this show, thereís just so much energy that itís absolutely impossible.

The second DVD goes much more behind the scenes featuring an interview with the band where we learn that Nick and Aaron would be location managers if PARADISE LOST wouldnít exist because itís just great to hang around and to drive expensive cars (great job indeed). Following right behind are some small interviews with fans in front of the venue, who were all very enthusiastic about the show lying behind them. The next stop is the European tour report. I always find it interesting to see some footage from behind the scenes and whatís going on aside from the stage, otherwise I probably would have never learned something about Jeffís German skills and the PARADISE LOST Internet CafÈ :)

And as if that wasnít enough, there are two promo videos i.e.: ëThe Enemyí and one for ëPraise Lamented Shadeí which is basically a live video and a short trailer for the tour documentary ëOver the Madnessí. And for those who also want to enjoy the concert on their home stereo, thereís a the complete concert split up on two CDs as well.
