The first disc, titled Voliminal, is a 80-minute film made up of rapidly edited scenes shot on handheld digital cameras, for 28 months
during the making of Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and on 'The Subliminal Verses' world tour. This is not a slick concert film with interspersed backstage footage. Nor is it a travelogue of fantastic sights and fabulous babes. This is survival in the belly of the beast. Crahan has assembled the shots into a dizzying cacophony of deafening sound and jarring imagery that's both challenging and impossible to ignore.
Like the films of Harmony Korine, Voliminal juxtaposes seemingly unrelated ideas into a collage of disturbingly surreal reality. The result is a shocking, disorienting view of the thrill and terror of dangling on the precipice of the abyss. 'It's vomit at its finest,' explains Crahan. Buried within the septic folds of the first Voliminal: Inside The Nine disc, are nine 'rabbit holes' that viewers can access with their DVD remotes. Each hole will feature a short starring each member of the band.
The second disc of Voliminal: Inside The Nine features exclusive, in-depth interviews with each of the band members. The discussions cover 10 years of band history in unflinching candor. 'The band is 10 years old and I felt that we needed to talk for real,' Crahan says. 'We're going into our places of choice, individually, and you're being invited all the way in. Hopefully you'll be able to stomach what is real.'
In addition to personal band interviews, the second DVD will include bonus live footage taken from festivals and television performances from around the world and the music videos from Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) - 'Duality,' 'Vermillion,' 'Before I Forget,' 'The Nameless' and the controversial 'Vermillion 2,' which was never officially released. Fans will also get an up-close view of the 'death masks' Slipknot use in concert.

Great DVD but the 1st disc is a let down.

I have been a Slipknot fan since I discovered them when their first album was out, and I have alot of merchandise/CD's/DVD's of Slipknot, I love these guys.
When I heard there was about to be a new DVD released on their fansite Outside The Nine I was very excited because this DVD was also a world wide release unlike many of the other DVD's that are released and the UK has to wait a few months until we get our copy here.
I agree with the previous reviewer about the 60-minute movie. It's really quite bad, you're pretty much baffled sometimes at what is going on and why.
The other disc however, makes up for everything and is worth the purchase. There is un-masked interviews with the band members (many of which are in black and white) so it kind of still gives the impression they want to stay annonymous. There is video's of their singles and some live performances.
I just wish the first disc was as first-class as the second, it's a real shame the first DVD is a let down.
The packaging of the DVD and such is fantastic as well, it's a cardboard packaging (just like the Disasterpeices DVD packaging really).
With their new album coming out sometime this year - let's hope a third DVD is better than the first disc on this one...

i'm a huge slipknot fan.
but i didn't enjoy this dvd at all.
after the amazing disaster peices dvd i thought that the nest slipknot dvd would be amazing, i was really disapointed. i wouldn't recomend it to anyone but if a friend has it still watch it to see for yourself (who nows, there might be someone out there that likes it), but don't waste your money on it
i can't wait for slipknot's new album which hopefully will be released next year.

An incredible let down

Usually I equate Slipknot to quality productions which do not disappoint the fans and are generally great value for money. However 'Voliminal: Inside The Nine' is a catastrophic disappointment. The whole of the first disc looks as if it has been filmed on a cheap camera phone by a drunk roadie (which it probably was). There are also some incredibly irritating sections of film that are just played backwards and forwards, slowed down and sped up - almost as if they were created by a child just discovering how to use movie maker software, not a professional director.
I understand that the whole shaky camera, un-tampered with footage idea is to give the viewer an idea of what it is like to be a member of Slipknot, and indeed there are some awesome montages, but on the whole it is very boring and just smacks of laziness on the directors (Clown /Shawn Crahan of Slipknot) part.
The live videos on disc 2 are somewhat better, but they wre nothing I hadn't seen on youtube before. The individual band member interviews are most definitely work a look, however, offering a very interesting, and often terrifying (check out number 5) insight into the band.
This is a DVD for completists and avid fans only, newer fans might just be turned off the band. Check out 'Disasterpieces' first.

Let me begin by saying that im not a slipknot hater i have a fan of their since i heard the first album and love each every release they put out since i saw this.
I have marked this dvd 3 stars because i didnt love it nore did i completely hate it. The movie is a let down but the extras save the dvd.
This movie is made up of grainy footage and random pointlessness which soldon the fact that its supposta be what life of slipknot is like on tour. i mean who wants to see shawn fixing the toilet.
The so called main feature of this the slipknot movie which the dvd is sold upon. Is also its majour downfall because it means nothing. It gives you nothing there fore you end up with nothing. None of slipknot speak or feature in the movie unless you count shawns back.
But the movie side of the dvd does feature one or two awesome clips such as joeys drum solo in which the camera is planted on his head givin you a front seat making you feel like your playing the drums yourself.
But this sensation lasts only minutes.
But as much as the main feature is a tottal let down this dvd is just about saved by its extras. The live features are awesome esp the the deathmasks on vermillion.
Elsewhere there are interveiws with each and every member of the band and 8 of the 9 members give detailed and worth watching interveiws. But the pinhead i was most looking forward to let me down the most. cuss he is the member that i know nothing about was a bit annoyed when i came to watching his interveiw just for it too last a mere 5 secs.
Also there are all of the bands most recent interveiws here including the banned second part vermillion video which is was expecting to be an exciting video when all i got was a merely good video.
Overall this dvd was not a tottal let down even if the main feature was the extras save it by a thread.
The extras are what gave me moneys worth because the movie was supposta help you get into the mind of the monster instead you leaving with what you already knew.
