Nor/Slaughter are a band from Minnesota that plays a very raw and primitive form of old school black metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 demo "Ansikt Grate".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for the synths which are only used briefly they bring a dark and atmospheric sound to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding along with some dark sounding melodies, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very primitive sounding black metal guitar leads that do not turn into solos, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the dark atmosphere of the recording.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams along with a brief use of deep demonic growls and spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover darkness, satanism, and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Nor/Slaughter are a very great sounding raw and primitive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Plague Of Satan" and "Betrayal". RECOMMENDED BUY.
