Slaughter  


Those seeking information on the "Up All Night" hair metal band Slaughter, look elsewhere. This 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. 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 aforementioned glam band), 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.

From a 2002 perspective, Strappado comes across as dated and simplistic, but damn cool as well, and there is no denying the influence they had on the death metal scene, which at at time was still in its infancy. It truly is a classic. Though there are no plans for any reformation, there have been re-releases of Strappado as well as some of their demos.
