German record label SPV Sept. 3 is set to release in Europe the newest music offering, Stage Fright, featuring live music from venerable British heavy metal band Motörhead in HD DVD.
SPV says the music HD DVD is the first next generation optical media disc to feature interactive capabilities, including picture-in-picture video commentaries, custom photo galleries and play lists.
SPV said it would utilize the HD DVD player's networking feature to update Motörhead fans with band news, pictures and fan artwork.
For example, “Motörhead for Life” is an online section whereby fans of the band can upload their newest tattoo logo ideas dedicated to the group.
The 2005 Grammy-winning band's music appeared earlier this year in Universal Studios Home Entertainment's HD DVD release Smokin' Aces.
