More than three years ago, Roadrunner Records celebrated their 25th anniversary by corralling 56 musicians from 44 different bands spanning the label's entire 25-year history to release "Roadrunner United: The All-Star Sessions."

Now, Roadrunner Records has announced that a new live DVD entitled, "Roadrunner United The Concert" will be released on December 9th.

The double disc DVD features the concert in Times Square where members and alumni of Roadrunner Records gathered to perform some of the label's best known tracks, including former Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach dueting with current vocalist Howard Jones on the song "My Last Serenade" and a variety of vocalists and musicians joining together to perform classic songs from the likes of King Diamond, Soulfly, Type O Negative, Machine Head, Slipknot and Sepultura.

Also on the DVD will be a 75 minute documentary which includes interviews and behind the scenes fottage. More details will follow as they're announced.

I checked it out STD (hehe), and I see what you mean, everybody on a lot of the articles sound droll or just pessimistic about everything. I should create an account on there and just stir up drama, pick fights and whatnot, just so somebody gets excited about something. :p

There's a few trouble makers here as well. On a bad day, i'm one of them. :p
I'm excited about this though. I hope they have some songs from the compilation as well Chuck of Perdition! About 70% of the cd was great!

Phhp, roadrunner did all but spit in the face of all the death/thrash bands they trod on and dropped when the latest trend hit.

Now Playing: Sunn O))) & Boris - "The Sinking Belle"

Recipe for Roadrunner United DVD:
1. 1 cup HOT water
2. Place a tea bag (any flavour) into the 1 cup HOT water
3. Read record sales for bands you used to own.
4. Chose the biggest money makers then put them all on a live cd and let it sell itself.

Yes - I think it was a marketing tool - too - but the album was not that bad. I want to check out this DVD.
