I like imagining the singer describing this record to his friends, “Dude, so I dressed up like a crazy Gwar Viking, and the guys from Pulling Teeth played all these W.A.S.P. riffs and, dude, we totally have a song called ‘Thunderhawk.’ We recorded a live album. You shoulda been there!” Being there was important. The sound is fine, but I feel like I’m missing out on the fun by not seeing it. The fact that there’s almost as much onstage banter as music drives that point home.
