Various Artists
Century Overload (DVD)
July 2016
Released: 2007, Century Media
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: JP

This video compilation is extremely similar to CENTURY MEDIA-THE VISUAL EXPERIENCE which came out just a year prior in 2006. This collection, simply (and appropriately!) called CENTURY OVERLOAD follows nicely in continuity.



The three disc set is housed in a thicker DVD case and comes with a 20-page full colour booklet with brief liner notes on each band. There are a massive 39 bands represented and a total of 85 videos! It would take you exactly five hours to watch this start to finish! What I find is a really good value, besides the sheer volume of videos, is that I personally have never seen most of the videos. Century Media were still making videos at a time when nether Much Music nor MTV would show videos and this is well before the creation of YouTube! The complaint I have is that like it's predecessor there is absolutely no rhyme or rain to the sequencing of the videos. They are not listed alphabetically. They are not listed by band. They are not listed chronologically. They are not organized by genre. It is a real mess and it is a shame they didn't learn anything from the first DVD, which was also a logistical nightmare. Let's say you want to watch all the Strapping Young Lad videos. You have to watch one on Disc 1, take it out, watch two on Disc 2, take it out, and watch one on Disc 3! What a pain! Something so simple to make it easier for the viewer and yet it is a jumbled mess. On the plus side of the equation there are several bonus features such as trailers, TV commercials, guitar lessons, a photo galleries, this thing is jam packed! The graphics and presentation are very nice as well.



It would be a pretty massive review to discus each video on CENTURY OVERLOAD but suffice to say you can look at the track list to the right of this review for the full list. It is nice to see some rarer videos from bands like Dream Evil, Kotipelto and Nocturnal Rites along side the more popular bands like Shadows Fall and Arch Enemy each with four or five videos. I understand that in 2016 all of these videos are quite readily available on Youtube but it is nice to have this collection on DVD.
