I don't know what kinds of archaeology, both literal and technological, were necessary to unearth this little gem. This is a live album put together from recordings on Desaster's 1997 tour just after the Stormbringer EP came out, and it features the classic lineup with Tormentor and Okkulto pounding out classics from the very earliest part of their career. You get "In a Winter Battle," "Devil's Sword" and a ripping cover of "Tormentor" just in case you wanted to know what this band is all about. Two covers on a disc this short may be pushing it, but they are classic Slayer and Kreator, so I'll let it pass. The sound on this is really excellent, especially considering what there probably was to work with on a '90s underground recording. A lot of extreme bands turn to mush on live tracks, but this just sounds like you are there in the club with them. A must for fans of this great underground band.
