Master are an old school death metal band from Chicago. Originally formed in 1983 as Death Strike after the demise of the band War Cry, they were heavily influenced by the rough brutal assaults of Venom, Slayer and Motorhead.
In 1985 vocalist / bassist and bandleader Paul Speckmann renamed the band Master and obtained a record deal with Combat Records. An album was recorded but then shelved by the label (later to be released as the ‘Unreleased 1985 Album’). The band were then signed by German metal powerhouse Nuclear Blast and the debut album ‘Master’ was finally released in 1990.
Two more albums appeared on the label but Master went on hiatus while Speckmann focused on several other projects like Abomination and Krabathor (and relocated to the Czech Republic). Since then Master have been releasing new albums with various different labels and embarking on several European tours.
This live release is a recording of the 2014 show Master performed in Athens, released by Doc Records on CD and double vinyl - a full show of Paul and his crew with all the highlights from his career.
