Canadian Thrashers SLAUGHTER Launch Official Web Site

Influential 1980s Canadian thrash metal band SLAUGHTER have launched their brand new official web site at

According to, "SLAUGHTER was a cult Canadian pre-death metal band, who attracted a fanatical following through their short career. Formed in 1984, the band went the usual demo tape route (at a time where underground tape trading was rampant, this only served to heighten band awareness), eventually recording their seminal 'Strappado' album in 1986. Recording commenced on a followup album to be entitled 'Paranormal', but the band broke up in 1990, preventing its release [the album was eventually issued in 2001 via Nuclear Blast]. Guitarist Dave Hewson recruited a new lineup and continued playing as STRAPPADO (the name change both to indicate a new direction and to avoid conflicts with [the cock-rock band fronted by Mark Slaughter]), but they never progressed beyond the demo stage. Later, Hewson and Bobby Sadzak (one of the new STRAPPADO members) formed INNER THOUGHT, which survived for a few years before folding. The band last recorded a song for a CELTIC FROST tribute in 1994 and disbanded for good shortly thereafter."
