If the mystical and biblical imagery in Dead Meadow's new concert film and accompanying soundtrack doesn't get your Led Zeppelin-loving heart racing, then you must be made of stone. Mixing live footage of the Washington, D.C.-based band's show with clips full of smoke, cloaks and automatic weapons, Three Kings is the band's The Song Remains The Same for a new age. DM's film is decidedly a little grittier than the bizarro concert doc that Page and the boys put out in 1976, though. You will hear a bit of Zep in the album track "That Old Temple," which sounds like "Houses of the Holy" after a handful of Xanax and a day cooking in the sun. That means we like it just fine.
