While touring on the Clash of the Titans tour to promote the studio album Seasons in the Abyss , separate sections of the Decade of Aggression album were recorded on October 14, , March 8, , and July 13, , however, AllMusic said that Rick Rubin 's production "seems to be in terms of shaping the live sound to make it sound like this is all one gig. The main disc was [disc] one and then we had other songs that we played a different night that we added to the package, and that was our first live experience, the first anyone could have Slayer live unless it was a tape-trading kind of thing from way back when.
So it was kinda cool, you know, we were proud of it. The release was intended to give them time to decide what their next album's style would be. The album does not feature an overdub of guitars. In The Rough Guide To Rock , it was said to be "intense" and "put studio favorites through the live shredder in a brutal and definitive manner. The album booklet includes a photo gallery with pictures dating back to The majority of the photos come from Kevin Estrada, who has said:.
Usually I choose my favorite shots that I've taken, and then I give them to the band and they choose the ones they like best. It's funny, because you'd think Slayer would have a definite vision for what they want to do with the photos, but they don't.
I say 'What do you want to do? They like to work quick — they don't want to do any two-hour photo shoots — and our personalities work really well, because I work quickly too. Thom Jurek, a staff writer for AllMusic ,  gave the album a rating of three out of five stars. Jurek gave notice to the album's sound quality, telling readers that it does not "capture the sheer overblown intensity of the unit in a concert setting," but that it comes closer than one may imagine.
The album charted on three different charts. On November 9, , it peaked at number 55 on the Billboard It maintained a number on the chart until February 2, , giving it a total of three weeks on the chart. It stayed on the chart for two weeks.
