NUNSLAUGHTER's classic 2014 album, Angelic Dread, is back with another long-awaited CD repress!
At the time, it was the band's first full-length studio album in seven years (and fourth overall) - "highly anticipated" then, and heavily cherished now. And for good reason: Angelic Dread was the fullest, fiercest realization of the eternal NUNSLAUGHTER aesthetic. "Devil Metal" to the bitter and bloody end, the quartet - helmed, since the beginning, by frontman Don of the Dead - create concise, catchy, and caustic anthems to anti-religion and supernatural horror, combining the best and most belligerent elements of death metal and hardcore punk. Then and now, it's no wonder that NUNSLAUGHTER have a diehard cult following around the world, all of whom consume the band's seemingly endless tornado of vinyl releases. But on Angelic Dread, the band delivered 15 of their most potent tracks ever, all (then-)fresh cuts, and rendered them in a production that's rounded yet absolutely ripping. Many of those diehards worship the band's short-length releases, but NUNSLAUGHTER are still skilled at delivering full-length statements worth reckoning, and nearly ten years later, Angelic Dread stands strong!
