Slayer @ Mammoth Events Center, Denver CO, 1991-01-19

Here is another tape out of the Lantz box.  I was excited about this tape particularly since I had been to this show.  Way before I was recording shows myself so it was fun to relive it.

Once again Lantz did a great job with the gear he had.  Sounds to me like a fix position recording. He was able to set his tape deck down somewhere and not move it.  Barely any phasing or other changes in tone.  Really nice tape of this era of Slayer.

This show happened days after the start of the first Gulf War in Iraq.  Tom mentions it in intro to a few of the songs.  Tom is extra chatty and there are many a classic piece of stage banter from him on this.  Band it tight as hell and the set list is top notch.  Raining Blood right into Black Magic!!!!

I recall it was below zero freezing in Denver the night of this.  Just brutal.  Tom mentions that too.
Testament opened.
