BLOOD was formed by Eisen, Taki, Geier and Radtke in March 1986 as a fun-noise Band. We recorded 3 Demos during this noisy time.
In June 1987 VENTILATOR joined BLOOD and the songs got more structure and the music became serious. The 4th Demo ´HEINOUS NOISE´ was recorded in Oct.1987, the 5th Demo ´SPASMO PARALYTIC DREAMS´, where Bestial Bernd used the micro in Feb.1988 and the 6th Demo ´NO REGRET´ in Aug. 1988 with Chuck on vocals.After that we found a new Singer called Martin.
At the beginning of 1989 we got our first record-deal with the US-Label ´WILD RAGS RECORDS´ the release of our debut LP ´IMPULSE TO DESTROY´ was in July 1989. One year later WILD RAGS released our first EP, ´RECOGNIZE YOURSELF´. After that we finished our cooperation with the label, ´cause they totally ripped us off.
In Dec. 1990 we recorded 5 new songs, which were released on two different split EP´s (one with IMPETIGO and the other with AGATHOCLES). those EP´s were self-releases with nearly 2000 copies each sold. After experiments with a second guitar player and another singer-change (Alex replaced Martin) we got another record deal with the german label ´1MF-RECORDz´ for the next 2 BLOOD Albums. The second LP called ´CHRISTBAIT´ released in June 1992 and the 3rd Album ´O AGIOS PETHANE´ where Martin re-joined Blood released in Sep. 1993.
After that release we signed a deal with ´MORBID RECORDS´. In August 1994 they did our split EP with DEAD INFECTION (with Eisen on vox) and the re-release of the 1st BLOOD Album on CD. In march 1994 we found Clausi, who used to be our actual singer and stopped the permanent line-up changes. later we recorded our 4th Album ´MENTAL CONFLICT´ released in Dec.1994.
In Sep.1995 we did another EP called ´SPITTLE RED OF BLOOD´ out on Iron records. In 1996 we recorded our 5th Album to be released in August 1996 as a self release (called `DEPRAVED GODDESS´). The next release was the split EP BLOOD/MYSTIC CIRCLE out since May 97. In December 97 the split EP with PSYCHO (USA) is released on AX/TION records,USA. The BLOOD/INHUME split EP was released in may 98. After that, we signed a contract at ARS METALLI records for the 6th full BLOOD album called `gas flames bones` released since August 99.
In 2000 we became part of the IMPETIGO-tribute CD on Razorback records – USA. In early 2001 the BLOOD/WARSPITE split 7″ released by Xetal records saw the daylight. After that in April 2001 KETZER PRODUCTIONS released the full BLOOD 7″ called massacre.
In march 2003 it was time for us to release the 7th BLOOD album called “Dysangelium” ON Morbid records… it´s a fucking killer!
In May 2014 we recognized ourselves and had some line-up changes. We luckily introduce you along with our 28th anniversary the original Blood line-up of 1988, on which Chuck is added at the second guitar to have a more brutal sound!
The band’s line up experienced its first of many mutations in 1989, with Jer and Bill being replaced by Rick Rancid (guitar) and John Sicko (drums). NunSlaughter’s second bastard offspring came screaming through the birth canal shortly thereafter, dragging its fetid placenta, “The Rotting Christ”. The next band-member morphogenesis occurred in 1991 when Gregoroth and Sicko slithered away. Von the Impaler latched on as a drummer and Don of the Dead (still on bass) became NunSlaughter’s vocalist as well. This repugnant assemblage produced the band’s third demo, “Impale the Soul of Christ on the Inverted Cross of Death”.
Two years crawled by before the next NunSlaughter creation was revealed. In 1993, upon learning that the now legendary “Ritual of Darkness” demo was being bootlegged as a 7″ record in Brazil, Don of the Dead began conspiring to celebrate NunSlaughter’s international conquest. The band conjured up yet another drummer, Mark Perversion. Hell bent on keeping the intrinsic, unrefined sound that had become their trademark, N.S. recorded their infamous “The Guts of Christ” demo completely live in their living room.
In 1995, NunSlaughter reinstated the unholy alliance of three of the original members: Don of the Dead, Gregoroth and Jer the Butcher. This sinister triad summoned the relentless drumming powers of Jim Sadist and exorcised the “Face of Evil” demo for the underground Death Metal masses. In January of ’97 (after Gregoroth and the Butcher went their separate ways) Don and Jim, along with fresh meat Chris 213 (bass) and Blood (guitar), began a new decade of death with the bands first studio recording, a split 7″ record with Bloodsick.
After countless setbacks but continuous writing NunSlaughter unleashed four more 7″ records with the first being a limited edition glow in the dark split 7″ record with Dekapitator. Soon after, a meeting of the most sinister kind came about with Crucifer to release a split 7″ of 666 copies. Unable to restrain their twisted prolific minds, NunSlaughter then produced an entire 7″ record entitled “Blood Devil” and the legend continued to grow from their split 7″ with cult female Death Metal band Derketa.
With the signing to Revenge Productions NunSlaughter released their full length LP/CD “Hells Unholy Fire”. A tour was arranged to promote the LP and NunSlaughter began their European tour in September 2000. While touring NS released another 7″ record entitled “Trifurcate”. This was another vile release that is heralded by the underground as one of the best 7″s.
Continuing with the tradition of vinyl and metal NunSlaughter prominently display their prowess in song writing ability and creativity in releasing many 7″s with specialty packaging. The time was ripe and the desire was there so NunSlaughter decided to release another full length studio LP in 2003. Entitled “Goat” this insidious recording was released by Revenge Productions in Europe and Metal War Productions in the USA. Another tour was booked and NunSlaughter prepared to invade Australia with their Metal Assault tour. Booking six dates in Australia with some of the best underground Aussie bands NunSlaughter held their own and proved their metal music fist could reach around the world. Upon their return NunSlaughter spent the next 2 years writing and recording over 16 new 7″ records and split 7″s. Working almost exclusively with Hells Headbangers the band has been able to produce some of the underground’s most sought after vinyl releases.
The planets aligned correctly in 2005 and another tour was prepared and booked this time in Japan. The “Goat” LP/CD had been sold out for a long time so plans were made to re-press it with a new layout and bonus track, as a digipak CD/LP and Picture LP, all on Hells Headbangers. The tour of Japan was immensely successful and NunSlaughter returned as conquerors of the land of the rising sun. With newly found vigor the band is planning their second DVD, this time with the footage and audio of Japan.
2006 has seen the release of a multitude of records including a split 7″ with Nocturnal, “Fathers of Fright 7”, “Fuck the God in Heaven” shaped CD / shaped Picture LP, “Face of Evil” 7″, “Rotting Christ” 3″ CD, “Goat” deluxe jewel case CD and the “DemoSlaughter” 7″ box set. Currently plans are being hatched to take the band back to California for a few shows as well as Florida, New York, Ohio and Illinois. This year NunSlaughter will also team up with several notable acts like Deceased, Destructor, Mutilated Messiah and Brody’s Militia for some split records. A rehearsal LP is also planned for the Japanese label Heavy Metal Super Stars and a new studio album entitled “Hex” on Hells Headbangers in June of 2007.
What has NunSlaughter been up to for the last 7+ years? Making metal and touring the world! Successful tours of Scandinavia, Europe and South East Asia in the past few years as well as a slew of killer split 7″s and wicked live shows prove that NunSlaughter is not going away anytime soon.
The new full length album, “Angelic Dread,” will be out through Hells Headbangers Records in July 2014. This is quite possibly the bands most cohesive piece of metal to date. To promote the album NunSlaughter is touring Europe as well as a few shows in the United States. The new line is the prepared to bring the HELL to it’s minions.
NunSlaughter is 27 years old and still metal as fuck. Over 130 releases on various formats and a multitude of bootlegs from around the world and you still never heard of them? Get off your ass and go down into the underground where NunSlaughter dwells.
Grindcore band from Mexico.
