Back of tour shirt [b]

The first time I saw Death perform was when I was in high school around the summer of 1991 (or maybe later, my memory isn't that well) during the "Spiritual Healing" Tour. They played at a small club/bar called AFTERDARK. The other bands that played were Devestation (I am almost sure) and Dark Reign from Houston, TX (I am definately sure). The most memorable moment of the show was when Death started playing "Spiritual Healing." The pit grew large and the brutality was flowing. I got up enough guts to dive from a speaker stack and was thrown around like a bag of old rags (I weighed 95 lbs at the time). The energy and the intensity grew. Then "it" happened. The barrier that seperated the audience from the stage COLLAPSED! Fists were flying. Bodies hit the floor. Bouncers were crushed. It was mayhem. I can say that no one died. I was almost sure were we going to have some crippled teenagers on our hands. As far as I know, that didn't happen either. It was one hell of a night of PURE BRUTALITY.

I still remember my "I Survived The Brutality" T-shirt I bought. I proudly wore that shirt to school as much as I could because I believed I truly had lived through a night of "awesome brutality."

Thanks for the memories Chuck.
