Description

About five years after their seminal third demo “Surrender or Die”, Slaughter were no more. The band had released their first album “Strappado”, a masterpiece of deadly thrash in its own right, and main man Dave Hewson moved on to form a new group under that very name.

A significant line-up change with the addition of a second guitarist resulted in “Not Dead Yet”, an album put out independently on tape and later fittingly re-issued under the old moniker – because it´s nothing less than a logical progression from Slaughter´s early sonic adventures.

“The situation was very different back them”, remembers Dave. “New members had come into the fold, and while we were still very heavy, the music developed into a more technical thrash metal style.” Eventually, the 35 minutes the four-piece churned out were not unlike what their countrymen Sacrifice managed with their classic full-length “Forward to Termination”.

However, the Slaughter signature was still there, albeit in a more refined guise. Bangers such as the explosively short ´Flake´, the playful ´Time Warp´ and the breakneck speed metal ´Astral Projektor´ show a remarkable degree of sophistication while remaining as uncompromising as ever.
