Was Slayer “Live Undead” A Real Live Album?

slayer live undead vinyl

Live Undead or Peter Frampton Comes Alive?

Here. is a question that may shock or amaze even some of the most die hard metal fans. It IS know that record companies would (especially in the 70’s) “live albums” that were really recorded in the studio — most of note and KISS and Peter Frampton.

There was a simple reason record companies were putting out so many live albums: THEY SELL!

But how about Slayer? Would they pull such a stunt?

You might be surprised….you can even listen to some of Slayer’s live recordings and demos that have been bootlegged from that period.

Kind of.

SLAYER LIVE UNDEAD – LISTEN TO THE WHOLE LP

Are You Ready For The Truth?

SLAYER LIVE UNDEAD

Here are the tracks:

Side A

  1. Black Magic 03:56
  2. Die by the Sword 04:01
  3. Captor of Sin 03:32

Side B

  1. The Antichrist 02:57
  2. Evil Has No Boundaries 02:54
  3. Show No Mercy 03:04
  4. Aggressive Perfector 02:32

Total Running Time – 22:56 

HERE IS HOW LIVE UNDEAD WAS RECORDED….

Tracks B1-B2 taken from the 1984 Haunting the Chapel EP.
Track B3 taken from the 1983 Show No Mercy album.

Recording information:

  • Tracks A1-A3 recorded live with a small number of fans in the studio.
  • Side one mixed at Track Record Studios, N. Hollywood, CA.
  • Side two recorded and mixed at Track Studios, N. Hollywood, CA.
  • Mastered at Capital Mastering, Hollywood, CA.
  • Track B3 mastered at MCA Whitney Recording Studios & The Town House Studios.
  • Co-produced by Slayer.

That said, it’s still an awesome album. If that shocks you, I can assure you that Show No Mercy was not a fake live album. In fact, the studio was so small that drummer Dave Lombardo had to OVERDUB HIS CYMBALS because the would “bleed over” into other tracks. If you list you can tell.

Show No Mercy and Live Undead Are Still Up For Grabs

Everything You Wanted To Know Slayer’s Hell Awaits (1985) – But Were Afraid To Ask!

Slayer 2nd full lp cover

Hell Awaits is the second album by Slayer. It was released in March 1985 on Metal Blade Records. It is metal heresy to say this, but Hell Awaits is my favorite Slayer album. Most fans consider “Riegn In Blood” to be the bands high watermark. I’ve bought a copy the day it came out. You can see pictures of the actual album in this post.

Some Interesting “Hell Awaits” Facts You Might Not Know

  • The album was mixed in one night.
  • Around that time, Kerry King’s hair was thinning. He came into practice one night wearing a hairpiece. He was ostracized by the band. This led to his trademark shaved head look.
  • The demonic growls in the intro of the album say, “Join Us” if you play it backward. The final phrase, which is not backward but is pitch shifted says “Welcome Back
  • “Hell Awaits” was the first album a record company put up the budget to release. Show No Mercy was self-financed by the band, largely because Tom Araya had a good job at a hospital.
  • These days, the band considers the production of the album to be quite poor. When asked if they would ever record or re-master it, Tom says “No, that was a snapshot of where we were in our career at the time.”
  • God Hates Us All” is the bans least favorite album. They consider the production on “Hell Awaits” to be superior.
  • Hell Awaits” and “At Dawn They Sleep” are still staples in the band’s setlist live.
  • All of the music and the lyrics were written by Jeff Hannemann and Kerry King. Tom Araya did not contribute lyrically until the “South of Heaven” album.
