Proves Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt They Were the REAL DEAL,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death: Live in L. A. (Death & Raw) [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
This album contains most of Death's best songs. The production value could have been a little better, however, the music and musicianship more than make up for it. If you're not familiar with Death, shame on you, they are one of the best bands ever, cetainly within the metal genre. If you're just getting into Death this is a good starting point, and it is a great addition to any Death, or metal, fan's collection.
These guys - even considering a few personnel changes - were at the top of the thrash-metal heap and have been credited with creating the subgenre "Death Metal." Personally, I do prefer the pristine studio recordings that capture all of the pounding, razor-sharp complexities in these songs, but the "raw" sound is still pretty freakin' great.
If your a Death fan or appreciate skill and want to see the one that paved the way for the rest of us check this out.
R.I.P. Chuck... hope you and Dimebag are making the angels ears bleed.
