Sometimes, I like to kick back and take a break from all the heavy rock and metal that I usually flock to with open arms. I’ve always felt that it’s good to have a bit of musical diversity. Doing so helps me appreciate artists that I would normally steer completely away from. So I looked at the opportunity of reviewing the new Dead Meadow DVD, ‘Three Kings’, with a tenuous excitement. Here was a chance to not only listen to an album for review purposes but also a chance to get some visual accompaniment that would (hopefully) take the listening experience to the next level.
From the moment the DVD started, I knew that this was something that I would need to become very comfortable for. It wouldn’t do to just sit down and watch this. For this experience, I needed to close the blinds, pour myself a nice drink, lay back on my couch and just let the rest unfold.
