In anticipation of their upcoming first North American tour starting today (dates further below), Slaughtbbath stream the entirety of their Contempt, War and Damnation compilation. Released today by Hells Headbangers on CD format, hear Slaughtbbath’s Contempt, War and Damnation in its entirety exclusively HERE.
One of the most elite hordes in the shit-hot Chilean black/death scene, for a decade and a half now, Slaughtbbath have prolifically pursued a fierce ‘n’ fiery vision of total black/death METAL. With a rich yet uniformly exemplary discography, this power-trio have laid waste to the underground across a myriad demos, splits, EPs, and 2013’s now-classic debut album, Hail to Fire.
Now aligned with Hells Headbangers since last year’s red-eyed ‘n’ raging split 7″ with Grave Desecrator, Slaughtbbath hereby present an exclusive collection of tracks from their post-Hail to Fire period. Aptly titled Contempt, War and Damnation, this seven-track CD compiles tracks from splits with Grave Desecrator, Ill Omen, Kill, and fellow Hells Headbangers cult Hades Archer as well as a rare compilation track and a brand-new song specifically recorded for this release. As ever going from strength to strength, Contempt, War and Damnation displays a Slaughtbbath at the peak of their powers, pulsing with both bestiality and burliness alike, and yet exhibiting a nuanced songwriting nous that is second to none.
As North America quivers before Slaughtbbath’s impending assault on its shores alongside fellow Chilean tyrants (and new Hells Headbangers labelmates) Communion, prepare for Contempt, War and Damnation!
