Roadrunner United's 'Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr' now in HD
Official press release:
We have opened the vault to bring to you for the first time on vinyl Roadrunner United The Concert (Live at the Nokia Theatre, New York, NY, 12/15/2005), featuring members of Slipknot, Anthrax, Trivium, Machine Head, Fear Factory, Sepultura, and more. Roadrunner United was a project organized by the heavy metal record label Roadrunner Records to celebrate its 25th anniversary. On December 15, 2005, in New York City. Roadrunner Records produced the metal concert to end all Metal Concerts: 39 musicians, representing 25 different Roadrunner bands, performed 25 songs from 19 different bands' repertoires. This unique and unprecedented aggregation of musicians was no jam session. Each song was studiously rehearsed and arranged, coming together with exuberant perfection, to produce a concert that can only be called legendary and iconic!
Conceived as a follow-up to the Roadrunner United The All-Star Sessions, the label recruited the core team of musicians (Dino Cazares, Adam Duce, Paul Gray, Joey Jordison, Andreas Kisser, and Roy Mayorga) as the backbone of the performance. Sure enough, as they fine-tuned the songs and rehearsed them tirelessly, dozens of other musicians boarded the performance.
This 3-LP set represents the gathering of a community of musicians that spans the heavy metal history of the first 25 years of Roadrunner Records — from King Diamond to Slipknot and beyond. Those who were lucky enough to be there experienced a night they will never forget. For the first time as a live concert album, this 3-LP set on red, white, and black-colored vinyl is a chance to relive that special night again and again.
The concert will also be available digitally. It is also presented in HD for the first time ever. Pre-order here.

2000s metalcore fav word … "martyr"
The video of it might be worth the watch.
Need the Ripper Owens and Glen Benton stuff, that was rad.
That was so f*cking terrible, and I actually like this song
Pump harder in the depths of my farter
Pull harder on the dong of your father
Didn't know Heafy was already playing Razorbacks then.
Iran wouldn't barter for hostages with Carter
No cream of tartar in my grandma's larder
Would your sister guard her incestuous ardor?
Sounds fantastic iconic album and amazing concert I'm very glad they brought this back
Roadrunner showcase... where was Turnstile?
Pull my cock harder instead
That was so meh, even Heafy's hairline was looking for the doors.
Durr durdurr on the durrrrrr of yer durdurr
Was there. Was rad.
I am here to ride bike!
Cargo shorts are stoked
