new album from DEMONIC SLAUGHTER is out!

From the howling caves, from the old rotting houses, inhabited by the dark spirits DEMONIC SLAUGHTER delivers their new full-length opus “Haunted”. The nine rites of this album were recorded during several full moon nights with “no triggers or any digital lies used during the recording process” assures the band leader, Xaos Oblivion. The recording was performed in a studio hidden deep in the woods, with a dedication closer to a possession, in order to capture the true aura of traditional black metal, in both sound and song structure. “Haunted” recalls the true glory of the Norwegian scene early sounds, in short - it's grim, menacing, cold, raw sounding and well-executed. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
