Slaughterday are a band from Germany that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Abattior" which will be released in May by F.D.A Records.
A very dark, heavy and old school sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds alter while the faster sections of the songs bring in a great amount of blast beats as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of dark sounding melodies and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's.
A great amount of Swedish influences can be heard in the bands musical style while the solos and leads also remain very true to an old school style along with the slower sections of the songs being very heavily influenced by doom metal as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and they also bring in covers of Trouble's "Victim Of The Insane" and Amorphis's "Grail's Mysteries" and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, spoken word samples can also be heard briefly.
Slaughterday creates another recording that remains true to their old school mixture of doom and death metal, the production sounds very professional in a 90's way and the lyrics cover horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Slaughterday and if you are a fan of old school doom and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wasteland Of Demise" and "Cursed By The Dead". 8 out of 10.
