hmmmm

Hey grouch, you might have noticed it but im just pointing it out any way. The jesters mask is acctualy the berzerkers current mask if you look close enough. I might be getting this wrong but if you have a good look at both of the masks then you can see they are the same one just customised to hell. Its the same with the other masks, they look different to the final product. Admittedly the bass mask looks pretty much the same other than the colours but the drummers mask looks like a dam alien's head until the dreads are put on and its fully painted!!!!

I appologise if i missed what you said completeley:

"when it came to the showing of the making of the masks what was wiv that shitty jester mask?"

If thats the case i think luke did a dam good job with the mask's. His mask just looks evil, as if he's inside somone else trying to crawl out through the mouth of the guy he's in!!!

wow. That was seriously fucking awesome. The amount of shit thrown at Luke even by inanimate objects like his computer, and him overcoming it all is..fuck i cant even find the words.

This is seriously a DVD that all music producers, engineers and maybe musicians themselves should watch, even if they arent into death metal (in my opinion). It made me realise the amount of effort and detail put into both albums, even the artwork on Dissimulate. I wonder if Luke had a hard time with making the DVD as well.

I applaud every one who has been a part of The Berzerker and I reckon they really should get an award or at least respect from musicians outside metal.

Thank you for making such great music and a fucking awesome DVD.

I didn't even know that the DVD was out until friday, so the first thing I did was go and get it (£16.99 HMV), worth every penny and then some.

The first thing I thought when I saw Luke without the mask is Mick Foley with a mohican, I don't mean that as an insult neither.

Couldn't wait the week, so went and got it from JB at Chadstone. Cheers for that Necropolis. (When I rang up Dandenong JB, they only told me about the one at Frankston, bastards!)

Fucken awsome DVD. Loved the bit where Sam was trying to learn Massacre (my fav song by far). And when the bezerker was fighting the singer from Labrat blindfolded. :D Killer DVD, great work.

As some of you might know I write for two webzines, namely The Blastbeat zine and Still Online .

Recently I wrote following DVD review for both zines:

THE BERZERKER
The Principles and Practices Of The Berzerker DVD
Earache
Australian industrial death metal merchants the Berzerker have taken the extreme metal world by storm with their two consecutive releases “the Berzerker” and “Dissimulate”. In the wake of their year long world tour Berzerker mastermind/creator/vocalist Luke took his handicam along the ride. The result is this an impressive and thorough look into the world of the Berzerker. Including an hour of live footage shot over the course of different gigs and countries, a promo clip for ‘No One Wins’, two making-of features: 101 minutes about the recording of “the Berzerker” and 25 minutes about the “Dissimulate” album. Another 25 minutes of interviews with the band themselves and band related items such as artwork and the creation of the bizarre masks. Concluding another 35 minutes of fan footage. The DVD is laid out beautifully and the animated menus are a dream to work with. Most of footage has an outstanding quality in both image and sound – with occasional rougher fan footage thrown in between for good measure. Considering the time, dedication and effort invested into the making of this DVD the Berzerker have raised the bar exponentially for extreme metal DVD’s. In completeness “the Principles and Practices” brings Fear Factory’s “Digital Connectivity” to mind, although this one is even more complete. Mandatory buying for any the Berzerker fan.

Damn excellent, especially the part about how difficult it was when you made the first album. The DVD is worth every cent/penny/whatever, it's an example for other bands!
