Master is an old school death metal band from Chicago, US. Master has released albums through labels as Nuclear Blast, Displeased, Pulverised and Pavement. This live-release is a registration of the 2014 show Master did in Athens and is released by Doc Records on cd-digipack and 4 different double-vinyls; a full show of Paul and his crew with all the highlights from his whole career are played and recorded on “Alive In Athens”! For fans of: Obituary, Autopsy, Possessed, Vader, Benediction, Massacre, Death and Bolt Thrower.

If there is an old school death metal band that doesn’t need much introduction it is Paul Speckmann’s Chicago, US-formation Master. One of ‘The Godfathers Of US Death Metal’ still releases new stuff, and nothing sounds (luckily enough) much different, as you know what you get; plain, fast & grooving old school death metal as it is supposed to be. 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 famous Combat Records. An album was recorded, but was ‘shelved’ by the label (later to be released by Displeased as the “Unreleased 1985-album” in 2003). They were shortly after signed by German metal-powerhouse Nuclear Blast and the debut-lp “Master” was finally released in 1990. Two more albums appeared on the label (“On The Seventh Day”-1992- & “Collection Of Souls”-1993-), 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 is on-and-off releasing new albums (with different labels) and embarking on several European tours.

This live-release is a registration of the 2014 show Master did in Athens and is released by Doc Records on cd-digipack and 4 different double-vinyls; a full show of Paul and his crew with all the highlights from his whole career are played and recorded on “Alive In Athens”!
