South East Europe, Republic of Macedonia, Skopje – that’s the place from which BORN FOR SLAUGHTER do the ass-kicking. There are two songs on their bandcamp site, from an split LP with SILENCE MEANS DEATH (Belgium).
That LP was released in November 2012 but I can’t find it anywhere. I guess I have to ask the band if they have a copy left. METAL and CRUST – that’s what BORN FOR SLAUGHTER put into these songs. These two songs sound very fluid, consistent, tight and dynamic. That goes especially for the drum work and the snare sound. Crusties from wherever – this is how a snare should sound! Tight, dry as a bone and without any reverberation effects.
Ok, let’s take a look at the guitars. BORN FOR SLAUGHTER have two guitarists and these dudes play lots of metallic, technical riffs and even some shrieking solos (I bet they love SLAYER!). Cool – because a little more variety in crust, always prevents boredom.
Hmh…this band is very good. Think of WOLFPACK & meets early FROM ASHES RISE, add some guitar tech stuff (not really tech like DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN but more tech than your usual metal crust band has, understand?) …and out comes BORN FOR SLAUGHTER. I hope these guys go on with their music and that they put out more records in the future.
