SLAUGHTER - Meatcleaver CD
One of the first thrash/death metal bands that started out in the early 1980’s that combined hardcore punk with screaming heavy thrash and death metal. “Meatcleaver” was their first demo tape recorded in August 1984. 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. In early 1986, Slaughter joined up briefly with the late, Chuck Schuldiner (Death/Control Denied) to form a 4 piece but Chuck quickly left to reform his band Death. Febuary 1986, Slaughter signed a record deal with Diabolic Force/Fringe and recorded their debut album; “Strappado”.
