Progressive metal band Redemption is preparing to film its second live DVD at the Progpower festival in Atlanta, GA in September, 2012.

Los Angeles-based progressive metal band Redemption is performing a headlining set at this years ProgPower festival in Atlanta, the leading US festival for progressive and power metal.

We last did a DVD in 2007 -- we've had two new CDs and a whole lot of great ideas since than, and want to film this upcoming performance and release a new DVD with the help of our amazing fans and the Kickstarter community.

We're going to put together a great 5-camera hi-definition shoot, with our own lighting guy with a great lighting show and some great ideas for our stage dressing.  We'll be performing some of our best-known songs from older CDs, plus some never-before-heard material, plus songs from our two more recent CDs, Snowfall on Judgment Day and This Mortal Coil that were not released at the time of our last DVD.

Our last DVD -- one clip of which is featured above -- was pretty darn cool.  But we've got some really unique things planned for this new shoot including the performance of a song that will only be performed once for as long as the band exists!

Be a part of this DVD project by contributing today -- thanks for your interest and support!


  • The concert is indeed September 15, 2012. The perils of drop-down menus when building a website! ;)

    Last updated:
  • The base budget here covers a regular DVD. There's not a of money in Blu Ray relative to its additional cost but if we generate significantly more than our initial target (which only covers some of the DVD production), I promise I will strongly consider a blu ray or high-def download option.
