Everything on this album is raw, crunchy, new (at least back then), and not to mention quite awesome. 23 minutes of pure fun and just plain o’ thrasshhh!! Just listen to the live version of ‘Captor of Sin’, ‘Show No Mercy’, or ‘Black Magic.’ While not top-notch on production, the problem is easily solved by just crankin’ up your stereo as loud as it can go.The Band: Tom, bass and vocals- Tom sounds great live, as always. He’s got to have one of the coolest high-pitched screams in the ‘biz. His bass is acually pretty present on this album too. He’ll make you laugh out loud a few times on this album as well with his little jokes in between songs. Dave, drums- Dave rips on this album. And I thought he was good on ‘RiB’! Just listen to ‘Evil Has No Boundaries’ or ‘Captor of Sin’ to see Lombardo’s crazy double bass work and booming rolls. Kerry, lead guitar- Ah, the raw energy that flows through every song through King’s guitar. The solos sound absolutely perfect, and the King/Hanneman duo keep it tight as ever. No screw ups on this album, and no overdubs! Jeff, lead guitar- You know, a lot of people are gonna be angry at me for saying this, but I believe than Jeff is the better guitarist. Don’t get me wrong, Kerry is amazing, but I just see that Jeff has written all my favorite Slayer songs, and all my favorite solos. Anywho, Jeff also tears it up on this album, making every 1/4 of this band absolutely perfect.So why, you ask, do I give this 4/5 stars and not 5? Where’s ‘Chemical Warfare’?! Argh, I was devastated that they didn’t play this, but I got over it. Plus, they got my hopes up with printing the four songs from ‘Haunting the Chapel’ on the CD, making me think they had included it too. Nope. Those are only minor cons though, and if you’re a Slayer fan, you definately gotta check this mofo out.
If you’re into the early Slayer like Show no mercy, Hell Awaits, Haunting the Chapel and Reing in blood you must have this album. [forget] production and quality for a second and just blast this CD when you need to get out some aggression. Live performances allways get you stoked of course, this one go’s past that. Slayer live infront of a routy NYC croud in 1984 is something we will never experiance again so I say get this CD and cherish it! One more important thing about this CD that Amazon seems to have left out. There is a newer (1980’s) recording of Chemical Warfare (one of my favs of all time) as the last song, it is Not live and is slightly diffrent then the one on Haunting the Chapel, I would say this Chem warfare ver sounds crisper and clearer. i’ve had this tape since 1989 and still crank it to this day!
New York City. Plenty of rowdy headbanging fans. One of metal’s most influential bands while they were approaching their apex. Take all that, shake, stir sparingly, and you get Slayer’s “Live Undead”. Yes, the production is shoddy, but the atmosphere of the band and fans more than makes up for it. Musically the band is incredibly tight knit; Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman’s dual layered double guitar assault is nothing short of amazing, while Dave Lombardo’s insane drum assault must be heard to be believed. Also featured on here is a studio recording of “Chemical Warfare” which sounds much cleaner and crisper than the version featured on the “Haunting the Chapel” EP.
I own every Slayer cd and I find everyone of them enjoyable. They really dont have a weakness in there career, and even Paul Bostaph was incrediable drummer. This live cd is great sound quailty and very intimate. I love early Slayer because Tom says some pretty funny stuff. So if you like Slayer, get it. If your just a fan of Regin in Blood, skip it.
