This is one of my favorite metal compilations of all time. I brought it sometime in the summer of 1994. I bought it on cassette. During this time, I was slowly getting into death metal and being a major fan of Malevolent Creation (who are one of the bands on this compilation), I decided to buy this album and I’m glad I did because you can’t find it anywhere nowadays. This was released back in the early 90’s which were death metal’s haydays. So I say get it any way you can.
Now for my review. This is a live compilation album that consists of 4 early 90’s death metal bands performing live at the annual Metal Fest held in Milwaukee in 1993 or 1994. These bands are Suffocation, Malevolent Creation, Exhorder and Cancer. These bands delivered a pulverizing show and when you listen to this album, you’ll have your head ripped off. I mean this is a supreme demonstration of brutal death metal the way it should be and trust me, you will agree. Some of my favorite songs here are Infecting The Crypts by Suffocation, Premature Burial and Slaughter Of Innocence by Malevolent Creation, Credance Of The Dirge and Desecrator by Exhorder and Hung, Drawn And Quartered and Bloodbath by Cancer. This is classic collection for all the old school death metal maniacs. Like I said before, this album was made in the early 90’s and you can’t find it in the stores like it was like back in the days. So get a copy if you ever get the opportunity and experience some live, classic death.
