First ever CD release of this classic early live set from legendary US thrash metal act Nuclear Assault. Captured live on their very first European tour, this recording comes from their show at Hammersmith Odeon, London, on June 20, 1987, on a bill completed by Agent Steel, Onslaught and Atomkraft. Features liner note contributions from the likes of Ryan Waste (Municipal Waste) and Howard 'H' Smith (Acid Reign). Formed in 1984 in New York, co-founded by bassist Danny Lilker after he left Anthrax following the release of their debut album. Signed to Combat Records, Nuclear Assault released their classic debut 'Game Over' in 1986. 1987 saw the release of an EP, 'The Plague', released to coincide with the tour from which this live set is taken. Two more classic full lengths followed; 'Survive' (1988) and 'Handle With Care' (1990), before the band fragmented. They remain sporadically active to this day. Lilker went on to find further success with Brutal Truth, as well as with his ex-Anthrax bandmates Scott Ian and Charlie Benante in Stormtroopers of Death.
