Slaughterday are a band from Oakland, California that plays doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Ravenous" which will be released by FDA Rekotz in August.
A very dark and evil sound starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction which leads up to growls, blast beats, fast playing and a great amount of Swedish death metal influences being added in before slowing down and adding in the doom metal elements as well as bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The bass guitars sound very powerful on this ep and the band also adds in a small amount of high pitched screams and melody at times and when solos are added into the music they bring a very raw and early 90's death metal feeling to the bands musical sound and the music on this ep sound s like it could of easily been released in 1992 and the last track is a cover of Acheron's "Ave Satanas"..
Slaughterday remain true to their old school death/doom metal sound with their music remaining me as a mixture of Autopsy and Dismember, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover darkness and horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Slaughterday and if you are a fan of doom/death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crawling In Secrecy" and "Ave Satanas". 8 out of 10.
