What an odd show. It starts out with the PA just hissing loudly, and then when the band starts playing, you can’t hear Carlos. I guess the P.A. blew before they went on. That probably explains the 28 minute set length. If you ever wanted to perform Redrum karaoke, here’s your chance. The tape sounds good and the band is pretty tight- this is probably the best live intro to Blood Sucking Freaks I have ever heard.
Oh, and we were clearly stoked about being “signed” to Metal Blade (for 1 song), as we mention it multiple times during the show. Carlos says that the band is going into the studio on Tuesday to record that track for Metal Massacre, but they were going to record Into the Ovens according to the show. They ended up recording Random Violence. I wonder what happened there… I personally think Random Violence is a better choice.
