Vision of Disorder Dead In New York

Vision of Disorder Dead In New York
Vision of Disorder’s unique approach to the New York hardcore style has earned them a dedicated fan base within that crowd, despite their diversity and willingness to expand upon the established formula. Documenting their supposed final performance, a reunion show on Long Island, Dead in New York sees VOD tearing into a lengthy set of crowd favourites with tightness and vigour. Noticeably avoiding material from their controversial nu metal bid From Bliss to Devastation, the material here mostly consists of older tracks from their self-titled and For the Bleeders releases. Underrepresented is their finest hour, 1996’s Imprint, with classic numbers such as "12 Steps to Nothing” and "Up in You” noticeably absent. The DVD also includes some extras pertaining to the group’s history and maintains a noticeably clear sound and picture quality throughout. Overall, a respectable document of an underrated group’s swansong, set list gripes aside. (Koch)
