This is a great pro-shot video from the 1991 Painkiller tour. The video quality is pretty good, although it has some minor errors every now and then, and of course being VHS sourced it's a bit blurry at times. There's also a slightly noticeable change in source (and a drop in quality) during Beyond the Realms of Death. A strong rumor suggests that the first part comes from the TV station master which was copied by an employee (this part was never broadcast), which would explain the legal warnings in the beginning. And the latter part is recorded off the broadcast (as it started during Glenn's solo). But despite the legal warnings, I can assure you that this concert has never been commercially released (even the copyright markings in the cover art are just an insider joke by Pete Z), so I think it's OK to seed it here.

The audio quality is really pristine throughout, and the lossless PCM coding is really justified here. I'm not certain if this is the full concert, but this is probably all there is available from this concert. Enjoy, and keep the metal faith!
