Slayer - Live At Dynamo 1985

Do you wanna know what the most pretentious subgroup of music fans is? There is a group of metal fans who won't listen to Slayer after 1985. Say that out loud. Their claim is "Slayer died at Dynamo." Dynamo is a famous venue in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The first time I heard the aforementioned claim I was confused so I sought out the Dynamo set. It is a ripper. It features only songs from Hell Awaits, Show No Mercy, and Haunting The Chapel. In any case, people who believe that "Slayer died at Dynamo" are retarded but their claim does shine a spotlight on Slayer's early catalog. Considering that many people focus their adoration for Slayer on Reign In Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons In The Abyss, perhaps it is a silver lining that there are people out there saying this to remind us about the greatness of Slayer's early work.
