Classic DVD Reviews: Various Artists | ReCollection / Noisy!

Get plenty of bang (and bands) for your buck with these hard-hitting compilations.

This came out in 2004 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


Even the punks and headbangers have joined the digital revolution.

For decades, unerground labels have put out compilation CDs to turn cash-strapped kids on to their bands. Now, they’re increasingly adding anthology DVDs like these two into the mix. The video-clip collection ReCollection — issued by Pennsylvania label Relapse — compiles 16 intense blasts of full-throttle metal, hardcore and noise-rock from heavyweights Neurosis, Dillinger Escape Plan, Brutal Truth and Today Is The Day. The Punkervision set Noisy! takes a different approach, gathering live cuts from a varied menu of punky outfits like Atom & His Package, Supersuckers and homegrown radicals Propagandhi, who weigh in with four tracks recorded during a recent gig in London. Either way, you get plenty of bang for your buck.
