Changes is a documentary and live DVD released in September 2004 by the hard rock band Godsmack. The DVD was recorded in early 2004. That same month, the group also released "Batalla de los Tambores" a drum dual between Shannon and Sully, available only via online services such as Apple's iTunes Music Store, Real, Napster, and the Zune Marketplace.[1] The DVD has been certified Platinum by the RIAA, with access sales of 100,000 copies in the United States.[2]

Filming[edit]

Changes offers fans the opportunity to experience the band in several ways. First is concert mode, which consists of 58 minutes of live performance footage including the hit songs Straight Out Of Line, "Voodoo", "Awake", "Moon Baby", "I Stand Alone", "Faceless," "Keep Away", "Bad Religion", "Whatever", "Re-Align", "Changes" and "Serenity".

As a feature film, which consists of 105 minutes running time, viewers experience the songs performed live directed by Daniel Catullo inter-cut with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage directed by MacNaughtan. Additionally, the DVD features super deluxe, collector's quality packaging and a choice of 5.1, DTS, 5.1 Multi-Channel or PCM Stereo/SRS Circle Surround Sound for a superior audio experience. The stereo track on "Changes" is encoded in Circle Surround 5.1, allowing anyone with a surround sound system (not just a Dolby Digital A/V receiver), to enjoy the 5.1 mix that the band and audio engineer intended.
