Slaughter the Giant
Alcatraz Line up: 2023
The Belgian band Slaughter the Giant was one of the surprise highlights of our 2019 edition. Just one year into their existence they came out of left field with their technical death metal and cuts from their excellent debut EP ‘Asylum of the Damned’. Their excellent set raised flags everywhere and Hammerheart Records were quick to snaffle them up. Expectations were high for their maiden full-length but ‘Depravity’ (2022) delivered the goods: bursting with energy and fuelled by fret-mangling riffs, ‘Depravity’ is an ironclad guarantee of an hour of intense listening pleasure. Fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, At the Gates, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Obscura have another band to look forward to next summer.
