I dont get the Spinal Tap reference either! I dont get any reference to Spinal Tap in this bands history with the exception of Loch Ness!! That would have made a good follow up to Stonehenge!! lol [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Bazooka Joe from Thursday, June 04, 2009 12:44:37 PM)

What's Spinal Tap about the new live album?
Sounded like that to me as well.
However, no matter how Spinal Tap this live album may be, it'll come to my hands.
The Acolytes of the Unholy Church of Our Lord Icariotis must never (officially) challenge the PRIEST'S decisions!
That was tongue-in-cheek in case some harder nuts are trolling about.

I know Beyond the Realms of Death is from Rising in the East. Pretty sure Painkiller is too.

Hi all, gave the 4 (sample) live tracks a listen and wanted to get ur thoughts & opinions. Here are mine (IMO):
Eat Me Alive - The true gem on the last tour, this song totally kicked ass live! Was great to hear them finally play it live and worth the wait absolutely.
Painkiller - Alot of Power behind this one, but lets be honest Halford should not be performing this live anymore. Put it on the shelf.
Beyond the Realms - This has to be from 2005-2006. Still a great showstopper for Priest, always cool to hear, but has not stood the test of time very well. Too many great versions of this song from all the previous tours, this isnt one of them.
Death - To me, this is the dark horse of the clips I heard. Sounded real tight and I love the eerieness of it. They can bring this one back for sure. Dont want to have the entire Nostradamus epic played live but this is pretty damn good.
Finally, a couple of songs that didnt make it to Touch of Evil Live disc but absolutely should have from the 2005 - 2008 tours:
Devils Child (2008) - Sounded great and Rob friggin nailed it. Loved it!
Hot Rockin' (2005) - To me, this was the best track on the Budokan DVD. Great dusted classic and live it put the crowd into a frenzy. Sorely omitted, why?
