Slave House - Demo

Slave House

(Band Submission)
Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Blackened Punk, Raw Black Metal
For Fans Of: Ildjarn, Mütiilation, Striborg, Hellhammer

Columbus, Ohio blackened punk/raw black metal act Slave House have been making some waves recently with an article in Cvlt Nation promoting their demo, and the complete selling out of their demo tapes through Knife Vision, and it's no wonder- it's pretty damn good. Full of grimy, necrotic guitar riffs and booming bass in the background that feels incredibly fat and weighty- juxtaposed against the backdrop of fast and punchy drumming perfectly, Slave House have demonstrated some real talent here. I was overall really surprised with how well Slave House's demo was put together, it still has the lo-fi/go-cry (thanks to the anonymous commenter on my White Medal review for that gem of a term) feel that you would expect of a demo tape, but the four tracks work extremely well together to create a really groovy enterprise that admittedly had me bobbing my head most of the way through, which is definitely a promising sign for future endeavors by Slave House.
