Side 1 is EPIC.
Side 2 is mostly rubbish.

Sadly, the only thing retained from Black Metal's "Geordie" production values is Cronos' Bass Tone. A massive massive fucking loss. Oh, what could have been....
6/10

Venom live in concert blows away studio albums.

True Black Metal, brother. All the live 80's stuff i've seen is fun 'n quality.
Just pains me that Side 2 of this is such arse considering what they evoked for The Seven Gates of Hell ep. Which, i must say imho, is some of their best output ever. Did i feel cheated? Yes, i felt cheated. A 14 year old had/has that right. Fuck all.

A UK 80's NWOBHM band with a singer/bass player who wanted to be Gene Simmons.
A guitarist who wanted to be KK Downing.
A drummer who wanted to be a drummer.

Erm...yeah. No sympathy with the UK press being "Geordie" devils either.
