Too Heavy To Hug #675

Welcome to THTH, Forte’s premier source of all things heavy, hard, fast and metal.

Great news for us all just in time for Xmas (fuck, already?), with the release of Dimevision Vol: 2 – Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over DVD/CD on Friday November 24. This release is the follow up to 2006’s Dimevision Vol: 1 – That’s The Fun I Have which was a compilation of video footage of the world of Dimebag Darrell. Vol: 2 is yet another celebration and compilation of even more raw video footage of the legendary Dimebag. If you happen to know a massive Dimebag and Pantera fan then this is something that is a must, and if that same person you know is so unfortunate that they don’t own any of the Pantera Vulgar Videos then why not drag the waters of the internet with the hopes of uncovering a DVD release of those, or VHS releases, but then, you know, you’ll probably also have to buy that unfortunate person a VCR too.
