If Satan ever held auditions for a house band, Nunslaughter (that’s Nun Slaughter, not Nun’s Laughter!) would be in the top three finalists. The long running death metal act has dubbed their music as “Devil Metal” and it’s easy to see why. Their lyrics make Deicide look like Stryper in comparison, with song titles like “The Guts of Christ”, “Jesus is Doomed”, and “I Hate Christians” pretty much affirming where they stand in regards to the Church.
One interesting thing about the band is the fact that they still use the old school death metal vocal style, not growling but instead using deep, harsh vocals that are actually easy to understand. This goes a long way in getting their message across and might even make them more accesible to those turned off by the usual death metal growls. The music itself is also old school death metal but with a nice thrash influence. It’s simple and primitive and that’s the beauty of it. "Raid the Convent" is the most well known song from their 2003 album Goat and a personal favorite of mine.
