Album Notes and Credits
Audio Mixers: Kieran Panasar; Andy Sneap.
One thing that Ozzfest certainly accomplished was that it showed annual metal festivals could thrive in the U.S. (something that had been regularly occurring for decades in Europe). As a result, many bands took notice, which led to several other similarly styled traveling road shows, including the Megadeth-created Gigantour. Since 2005, the tour has been headlined by (take a guess) Megadeth, with lineups comprised of seemingly more underground metal acts than Ozzfest, as well as veteran acts that never toured as part of Ozzfest (Dream Theater, Overkill, etc.). Gigantour, Vol. 2 was released as both a CD and a companion DVD in 2008. The CD contains a mixture of metal acts old (Overkill, Megadeth) and new (Arch Enemy, Lamb of God). And instead of including renditions of classics by the better-known acts, the "lesser known" are focused on, as evidenced by Megadeth's "Take No Prisoners," Overkill's "Long Time Dying," etc. (although a "hidden track" proves to be none other than Megadeth's classic "Peace Sells"). Overall, Gigantour, Vol. 2 is a fitting sampler of your average Gigantour gig. ~ Greg Prato
