SLAUGHTER

SLAUGHTER
Strappado
(Marquee Records)
143:44min

Probably music’s history first living proof of the fact why there is a good reason that “guitar” rhymes somewhat with “chainsaw” are Canadian cult Death / Thrashers SLAUGHTER whose debut album “Strappado” is a milestone in sonic extremity and still to the very day rips your auditory canals with its truly bestial sound ‘til rivers of blood shoot out! Several versions of this album exist but Brazilian Marquee label who are renowned for stunning reissues have just put out the definite version of this album in cooperation with the band by offering the original ’86 LP mix, the more powerful sounding ’93 Fringe CD version along with tracks 'Maim To Please', 'One Foot In The Grave', 'Tyrant Of Hell' and 'Death Dealer' recorded during the album sessions as well as live tracks recorded in Toronto, Ontario in 1986, the "Meatcleaver" demo (1984), the "Bloody Karnage" demo (1984) and “Surrender Or Die” demo (1985). Whereas both 1984 demos as well as the five live tracks sound extremely filthy and barbaric (and hardly listenable), the devastating “Surrender Or Die” demo still is a total listening pleasure and prime example of the band’s “1,2, fuck you!” attitude and style. Having both the “Strappado” album and fabulous “Surrender Or Die” demo on one release makes this a must-buy already as Dave Hewson’s punkish snarl and the VENOM, DISCHARGE inspired to-the-bone heavy carnage Metal is f**king essential for every maniac out there and a prime example of total “arghhh-ness”! If you don’t own this album, get this version asap or else “your fucking souls shall be raped”! And by the way – isn’t 'Tales Of The Macabre' one of the best songs ever? www.facebook.com/pages/SLAUGHTER-Canada/12169425739, www.myspace.com/slaughtercanada, www.marquee.com.br
