A Collection Of Noisymotions
(Osmose Productions)
Approx. 150min

Osmose Productions had the excellent idea to literally cram tons of video clips in one DVD which sums up the visual history of the label so far, and the result turns out extremely convincing! All I can say is that all the tracks featured here are pleasant to watch to say the least. On the most sick and disturbing side, you certainly enjoy both ARKHON INFAUSTUS ('Whirlwind Journey') and ANTAEUS ('Blood War III") clips, proving that the French extreme Metal scene is more than healthy today. Really offending material. Another clip worth to mention is the ABOMINATOR one ('Renegades Of Hell Command', a FANTASTIC track, an instant classic) where the editing work is remarkable, with a perfect synchronization of the soundtrack (directly taken from the essential "Subversive For Lucifer" album) with studio and live footage. The price of the most bewitching and beautiful segment goes to ABSU for 'Fantasizing To The Third Of The Pagan Vision': strange occult visual atmosphere to illustrate an adventurous and sinuous song, a true journey into the dark side! IMPALED NAZARENE takes the lion's share here, with no less than six videos featured. One of them ('Hardboiled And Still Hellbound') proved to be peculiarly funny in my camp, reminding me silly cover arts of both NWOBHM and German cheesy early 1980 Metal albums, but put in motion this time. Yeah, a cool chick indeed! The palm of originality, both musically and visually, goes to NOTRE DAME (three clips included here), an alliance of French Grand-Guignol and Italian Horror B-movies perhaps? The most funny and moronic clip is certainly the GEHENNAH one, with a certain SPINAL TAP vibe surrounding it: refreshing indeed to see Metal dudes who take themselves not that seriously and enjoy stupid fun! I stop here the surely fastidious enumeration of all the acts included here; I can't cite everything and everybody! Let's say that the bonus section of this DVD offers even more! No less than five live tracks of IMMORTAL featuring the classic line-up Abbath-Demonaz-Grim (RIP), footage of an ANGELCORPSE performance (shot in Paris I think, if I am right, I was there, right beside the guy who shot that), BLASPHEMY on stage somewhere in Europe (?), only to cite the most interesting stuff. Of course, if you collect video bootleg, maybe you own this special stuff already, but personally I am more than happy to watch this stuff on an inalterable format! The only let down of this superb DVD is for me the "At Home With Snowy" segment, a loss of time, where Snowy looks more like a tired transvestite than anything else, embarrassing really. Well too sum it up, I am far to have described all the richness of this DVD. I am sure you understood you have to own this piece of plastic urgently. Thanks Osmose for offering such a class product which proves the respect the label always have to the Metal fans (that said without vile flattery!)
