DubbWind-Up Records is preparing a DVD chronicling the history of hard rock act Drowning Pool, whose singer Dave Williams died of natural causes during the band's stint on this summer's Ozzfest tour. Dubbed "Sinema," the two-and-a-half-hour video will be released Nov. 19 and will feature backstage footage, rare interviews, and personal tributes from those who knew Williams, including Pantera's Diamond Darrell, Rob Zombie, and P.O.D.'s Sonny Sandoval.
Darrell contributes a 15-minute montage specifically compiled for the DVD with material from his personal home video collection. Among the others who share their remembrances include Disturbed's David Draiman, Ozzy Osbourne's lead guitarist Zakk Wylde, and members of Ill Nino, Adema, and Seether. Additionally, the film captures Drowning Pool in its hometown of Dallas, and features footage from the making of "Sinner," the group's sole recorded album, which has sold more than 1.2 million copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The band's videos of three songs, "Tear Away," "Sinner," and "Bodies," the latter of which hit No. 6 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks tally, will also be included on the DVD. Additionally, the disc will feature previously unreleased music, an audio commentary by the band, and never-before-seen live footage.
Wind-Up has committed $250,000 from the sale of the DVD toward a new home for the parents of Williams.
