MetalBite Review by Tom on 2/11/2009
For those of you that are not too familiar with Anthrax
videos or their videography altogether - here's a short flashback. "Through Time P.O.V."
is a collection of videos (including all the bands singles) originally released in 1990 by Universal Music on VHS.
Long out of print, out of reach and probably out of existence, the aforementioned tape tormented all fans that wanted to add it to their collections. Re-released on DVD in 2008, sold and distributed by England's Cherry Red Records, it is finally back on the market.
As for the videos themselves, what we have here is simply Anthrax
. All videos have a little introduction by a member or members of the band, explaining either the idea behind the video or just remembering the times during which that particular video was made. Quality of the picture isn't so bad considering the age of the original and same goes for the sound. Neither one was enhanced in any way, forcing me to think that the whole thing was simply recorded from good quality tape to DVD with the addition of menu at the beginning. There may be some complaints about all that but I'm simply enjoying something that was out of my reach for so many years. 9 videos of one of my favorite band that I could only watch on You Tube in very poor quality are now on DVD. How can I complain?
