NUNSLAUGHTER. The name alone strikes fear into the fainthearted. The ever-present stench of this band has wafted through the scene for years now. But from the looks of things, 2011 may as well be 1991 for all the band gives a god damn. "Demoslaughter", as a means for old schoolers to re-live the old days, or as an introduction to one of Uncle Sam’s best and long-lived Death Metal bands, is a detailed collection – as it should be, for if NUNSLAUGHTER is known for one thing, it’s productivity. They produced enough material for a collection of tracks over an hour and a half long, and demo tracks at that. The music collected on this NUNSLAUGHTER demo-lexicon differs little from modern analogues such as ‘I Hate Christians’, off the 2007 album, Hex. The earliest tracks, dating from the days when the band’s working name was DEATH SENTENCE, are the most primitive, sounding the least like the NUNSLAUGHTER we all know and love. However the spirit of the band is loud and proud throughout. But a word of caution, poor souls: the torment is only just begun. These brilliant, foundational songs live (or is it die?) again and again on multiple NUNSLAUGHTER releases; remember to give them a listen as well. Well worth it. www.myspace.com/nun666slaughter, www.hellsheadbangers.com
