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.
