Undertakers - _Live in Brutality_
(Nocturnal Music, 1999)
by: Paul Schwarz (6 out of 10)
Live albums are generally put out as contract fulfillers, cash-ins or alternatives to best-ofs. It's a fact, let's face it. This is not to say I don't enjoy them sometimes, because I do, sometimes. A live album from the underground, though, is a dubious prospect. Are there really enough fans of a band as small as Undertakers to warrant a CD containing five live originals, one SoD cover and two remastered demo tracks with a total running time of twenty eight minutes? [According to sales figures of this, there are, since I am informed that it has shifted 500 copies in two weeks -- Paul.] The live sound on this is surprisingly good, the material is mostly new and as yet unheard, the SoD cover is well performed and the demo tracks have been given a professional sound, but if I were scoring solely value for money, you could knock four to five marks off my rating.
