Serving to chronicle the meteoric rise of one of metal music's music enduring, prolific collectives, the 2004 concert film Killadelphia from Lamb of God is a regarded as one of the genre's cornerstones.
Ranked as an essential in the vein of Maiden's Rock In Rio and Pantera's Official Live: 101 Proof, Killadelphia captured an era of Lamb of God that underscored the band's transition into elites of the culture - a transformation augmented and punctuated during the band's immortalized decimation in a blistering 17-song set.
Filmed at the legendary Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, the timeless footage was shot and directed by Doug Spangenberg with the audio component brilliantly mixed by Machine - the same man responsible for the band's colossal sound on their seminal Ashes of the Wake full length.
The film was shot while the band was touring in support of that third pivotal album. The live footage showcases a comprehensive set that included mandatory selections from Lamb of God's first three albums - New American Gospel, As The Palaces Burn, and the previously mentioned Ashes of the Wake.
The concert DVD would go on to become certified platinum in 2007, further cementing the legacy of the Virginian metal giants and confirming that metal music had added another essential entry to the archives of unforgettable performances captured on film.
