Collector's Information:

"Live Undead" is the first live extended play by the American thrash metal band Slayer. It was released through Metal Blade Records and recorded in New York City in front of a room of people. It has been questioned by both critics and authors that the audience sound may or may not be faked, however when asked if they were fake, producer Bill Metoyer said, "I don't know if I should tell you." The album begins with an extended introduction of "Black Magic", followed by a small speech. The remaining tracks include both those of 1983's "Show No Mercy" and 1984's "Haunting the Chapel". Ned Raggett of Allmusic gave the album two and a half out of five stars, and noted that it "isn't really necessary except for the hardest of hardcore fans."
