Now, here's a hard-nosed recording for sure. The band is close to the end of the tour and firing on all cylinders. This is the final date in Japan on their first tour of the country, and judged by the opening remarks it seems the band has had a very enjoyable stay there.

Some crowd control with the help of a local translator ensues at first, but things seem to settle to a more peaceful level soon. Not that the playing would get mellow, quite the contrary in fact. The band rocks real hard song after song.

The sound is pretty aggressive and there's a little distortion when things go to red during the loudest moments. Not too badly though. Overall this recording works better on a stereo for me, because with the headphones it feels very pushed. The guitars and vocals are prominent. Joe's bass tends to drown, which is a pity. The drums on the other hand sound really powerful. This is a soundboard recording of the totally-in-your-face kind. There's a touch of added reverb which adds a little air.

Reclamation is as strong as it gets here. Another highlight is a bombastic Bad Mouth flowing into an attitude-filled Burning.

Last Chance For A Slow Dance is coming along nicely and is closer to the album tempo here. Repeater is a total contrast to that peaceful moment exploding the roof off the place. Finally, Reprovisional turns to a huge, noisy jam to close the evening.

This show practically flies by in flames with only a few breathers, and it's recommended especially for fans of the band's hardcore roots.
