Yes, fans of hard rock and heavy metal love new releases put out by favorite bands - and yes, attending a concert of a well-loved band is one of the greatest experiences there is. But, for many music lovers, a guilty pleasure of the fan is all the behind-the-scenes stuff that some artists put out. Backstage and rare interviews, studio sessions, and home videos -- this is the kind of footage that is voraciously sought after by many lovers of bands because it offers that insight into the lives, minds, and creative process of band members. And Grammy-nominated metalcore masters, Killswitch Engage have just released one of these gems that fans are absolutely going to love.
Having just unleashed Beyond the Flames: Home Video Vol. II, this special package is available in two-disc, Blu-ray and CD options. Containing over three and a half hours of footage, Beyond the Flames: Home Video Vol. II also includes a 75-minute documentary detailing the return of vocalist Jesse Leach, after nearly a decade away from the band. Check out the trailer here.
But that's not all as the release is also jam-packed with seventeen live performances from around the globe, Leach's first show back in the band, Download Festival, Knotfest, Loud Park Japan, and more. And the additional bonus material includes music videos, unique individual band member profiles, outtakes, and a bonus audio disc of six, previously unreleased live tracks from Killswitch Engage's 2014 "Monster Mosh" show in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The track listing for the live CD is as follows.
"No End in Sight"
"Life to Lifeless"
"In Due Time"
