“Metallica’s A Year and a Half in the Life of…., and Live, Shit, Binge and Purge, were my bibles while growing up,” states guitarist Rob Arnold. “Watching the guys in the studio, out on the road, and backstage, taught me so much, and definitely played a major roll in shaping me into the musician I am today. After watching our new DVD set, Coming Alive, I sat back, ULTRA satisfied, and knew that this DVD would do the exact same thing for fans and musicians of today. The quality, the content, the humor, the realism, the insight, and the impact of this product, will definitely erupt onto the music community. Even the packaging is totally sick…. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of the first copies, and I KNOW that you’re going to love yours!”
