SLAYER


artist: SLAYER (Los Angeles, California, USA)
venue: Dynamo
location: Eindhoven, HOLLAND
date: late May/early June 1985
length: 84 minutes

Recorded on SLAYER's first European tour and widely circulated via video, this recording is top notch and screaming. There's a reason why this band is the bench mark...also, some of the between song banter must be heard to be believed (and I'm specifically talking about the introduction to "Necrophiliac" here).
