did you film it and were unhappy with the performance?
any sort of answer from a berzerker member would be very much appreciated, because i really love that song, and am very upset that it is not on the dvd (although i am very greatful that the dvd is coming out even without the song).
thankyou
very simple the band never learnt it! it was a song that i wrote! but they just learnt it for the album. sorry!! i would have liked to play it though

There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves! Guess what... Einstein PROVED that. Death doesn't exist cos everything is matter, all matter is energy. Energy does not dieits all in the mind, instead, energy builds itself into life like you and me.

Hey, is there any chance The Berzerker will tour with Vader again?

I read that they will be doing a US tour around October or November on their site, and seeing as you guys said you liked the last tour ;) maybe it could happen again?

I missed both Berzerker tours, with Vader and the headlining one, and am still kicking myself for it, hopefully a Vader/Berzerker tour can happen again so I can see 2 of the greatest bands in Metal play live :D

If the DVD has live tracks on it, are you guys going to make a live cd soon? I saw you guys in... must've been 2002 at the Underground in London, Uk and it was insane. The tracks on the first albums is fine, but it doesn't accurately portay the immense energy of the Bezerker. Its an energy which is... inhuman. Isn't that what the Bezerker is all about? Being separate from your real life personalities? C'mon guys, bring out those live cds, I know your live shows are brutal, capture that sound and sell the pure energy that is The Bezerker.

Your dream may be to awaken into a world where people will consider others before themselves, but we can change this. America invests Trillions of dollars into developing weapons each year and that money could be spent to feed the globe. What I want to ask is this: Is it not both natural and logical to lookout for your own welfare rather than others? Your dream can be easily misinterperated, do you mean people should act less selfish or the extreme, be very compassionate?

Also, is the album Dissimulate going to be re-released with extra tracks? If so when and if not, why not?

In the liner notes of Dissimulate, someone named Sloth is thanked. Is this Sloth, the drummer from Sadistik Exekution? If so, how was he involved in the production of the album?

Are there lyrics to "Abandonment" and "Ignorance"?

Where the insperation for the lyrics to ...

Corporal Jigsore Quandary as the Lryics are so cool they seem abit like some of the poems that I write and where did you guys get the samples that you use on most of the Dissimulate Albums as I would love to use some of them on the Mixes I make for my own use!

recording techniques

As im in Australia and have been unable to get the dvd as of yet, i was wondering about a few things from the recordings(im an engineer).
Firstly, how did you get your drum sound, i heard you use a 909, im guessing you then run this through some kind of pedal or distortion unit for the sound, if so, what and how did you do this.
Also a similair question as to how you distorted the vocals, I saw the pics on the site from the recording of the first album what looks like a DOD death metal pedal in the signal chain at the mixer, is this what you ran the vocals through, as i have tried this myself but cannot get the clarity needed.
Im sure the response will probably be either "watch the dvd" or "thats my fucking secret" but im generally interested to know.

Thankyou, Nasag
