I saw them in Atlanta in August 1990. Death metal was still underground at the time, and maybe 75 people showed up on a Sunday night. I remember they had a campy upside-down cross in front of the drum riser. I also recall a sizeable portion of the crowd gathered behind Pete Sandoval, since at that time it was quite a feat to play that fast. Now, of course, blast beats are a dime a dozen.
