SLAUGHTER (CANADA)


SLAUGHTER was formed in August of 1984 by Terry Sadler(vocals/bass guitar), Dave Hewson(vocals & chainsaw guitars) and Ron Sumners(drums) in Toronto, Canada and were one of the first, original, death metal bands to emerge in the early 1980's, pioneering daze of thrash/death and doom metal! Slaughter often mixed old, school, hardcore and punk rock with thrash, death and speed metal that sounded like Black Sabbath playing punk rock. "Bloody Karnage" was their first demo tape recorded on New Years Eve 1984 which led to their signing with Diabolic Force/Fringe Records for the recording of their second demo; "SURRENDER OR DIE". This demo became heavily traded amongst the early 80's tape trading scene and blasted open the doors for the Canadian thrash and death metal scene which later spawned such other bands as "Sacrifice", "Razor" and "Infernal Majesty". Febuary 1986, Slaughter signed a record deal with Diabolic Force/Fringe and recorded their debut album; "STRAPPADO". After many delays and record company turmoil the album was released a full year later. Sounding like Black Sabbath mixed with a freight train with old-school punk/hardcore influences, the band forged one of the heaviest,doom-thrash metal albums to belch out of the legendary 1980's,early metal scene! They eventually broke up because of their annoyance for the music industry. Dave Hewson formed a new band under the name Strappado.
