LAMB OF GOD's new double disc DVD, "Walk With Me In Hell", sold more than 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 2 on Billboard's Top Music Videos chart. The DVD shipped gold (25,000) in its first week and the heavy metal icons were a close second to pop mainstay JOHN MAYER.
LAMB OF GOD's prior DVD, the platinum-certified "Killadelphia", sold 8,000 in its first week and debuted at No. 4 on the Top Music Videos chart. With its incredible first week success, "Walk With Me In Hell" is poised to surpass its predecessor.
Drummer Chris Adler commented on the initial success of the double DVD: "We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated fans and friends across the world. This incredible achievement is a very proud moment for all of us. Our journey over the past two years has been nothing short of amazing, and we thank you all for joining us."
"Walk With Me In Hell" (read Scott Alisoglu's review of the DVD at this location) features over five hours of incredible, all-access footage. Disc 1 contains the feature documentary "Walk With Me In Hell" and multiple live performance extras from across the globe on the "Sacrament" world tour. The documentary chronicles every detail in the lives of LAMB OF GOD as they completed recording and toured around the world nearly three times over in support of the highly praised 2006 album "Sacrament". Disc 2 includes an additional full-length "Making of Sacrament" feature plus LAMB OF GOD's entire, uncut, brutal performance at the Download festival 2007, where they performed in front of over 72,000 fans. Extras include deleted scenes, live performance videos for various tour stops, the official music video for "Redneck", and a "Making of Redneck" documentary.
"Walk With Me In Hell" was directed by Doug Spangenberg, who has also directed the platinum-awarded "Killadelphia" DVD, plus LAMB OF GOD's first DVD, "Terror and Hubris".
