It’s been over a decade since Dimevision Vol. 1: That’s The Fun I Have was released. The 2006 DVD featured rare archival footage from the late Dimebag Darrell that spanned throughout his career with Pantera and Damageplan including his earlier Metal Magic days. However, volume 1 wasn’t enough and now Metal Blade Records will be releasing Dimevision Vol 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over on November 24th. This DVD/CD package will include additional raw footage and five previously unreleased demos, picked from a vast catalog Dimebag accrued since longtime girlfriend Rita Haney gave him his first 4-track in 1984.
A PledgeMusic campaign has been launched as well to support the release, which also includes an assortment of rare items to buy such as props and costumes that belonged to Dimebag.
“It comes from something he was saying a lot in 2003 and 2004. He’d call from the road and he’d say ‘man, I’m beat up out here, but that’s the highs and lows of rock and roll. You gotta roll with it or get rolled over.’
He had a unique way of seeing things, and he always lived with a video camera. No matter where we went he was always capturing what was going on, and myself and others around him were filming a lot too. In putting out these videos I just want people to see the way he was, 24/7. What you saw on stage and backstage, that was how he lived.”
“There were some really touching, deep, heavy and emotional moments in the first one, where he’s talking about himself to the camera while in the shower. Filming himself like that was something he did a lot, and you’d have no clue until you’re looking through the tapes and come across them, and when you do the goosebumps crawl all over you. People that love and know Darrell are going to be touched by what he has to say, because it’s him telling you for the first time.”
