Last year marked the inaugural Sounds of the Underground tour, which saw 17 of the best and most brutal metal acts around traverse the U.S. and Canada in what proved to be a very successful alternative to the more commercial Ozzfest. The tour hit the parking lot of the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on July 2nd, 2005, and with it came almost 5000 fans. Metal bands like A Life Once Once Lost and Strapping Young Lad hammered out their sets alongside hardcore acts like Madball and Throwdown in the sweltering 95+ degree midday heat. As the sun began to set, stalwarts like Chimaira, Poison the Well and From Autumn to Ashes played well into the darkness. All of the passion and power of that day is captured in Sounds of the Underground Live: Vol. 1, which will hit streets on June 20th.

DRT Entertainment will be releasing the DVD which documents the day's festivities, complete with performances from 16 of the 17 artists who participated in the tour. Along with over 90 minutes of performance footage, the DVD also features vignettes on every band on the tour, along with a host of hilarious 'guest interview' segments from members of GWAR, Every Time I Die and Throwdown. The DVD was filmed by Doug Spangenberg of Highroller Studios (Lamb of God's Killadelphia).

Featuring live performances from:

All That Remains
DevilDriver
A Life Once Lost
Madball
High on Fire
Strapping Young Lad
Throwdown
Norma Jean
Every Time I Die
Gwar
Chimaira

well remember that for those that listen to the finer things in life, names like AILD, In Flames, and Trivium might sound very familiar. but for the radio listeners those bands dont even come close to being household names.

all anyone has to know is that BEHEMOTH is headlining this years Sounds of the Underground, and even if you dont like this bands style (death/black) you must witness their live show.....the musicianship and energy of their set is unmatched in music today. If you dont believe me, just go check them out. Plus Nergal is the best guitarist/frontman on earth.....ALL HAIL BEHEMOTH
