Nunslaughter can for sure be labeled as pioneérs of the death metal genre. The started out back in 1987 and have since then an massive back catalogue that contains numerous splits/Ep´s/compilations and full-lenghts.
"Angelic Dread" is a two disk release that contains new material on the first disc and re-recorded material from various 7" on the second.
The new material is intensive and enjoyable but the songs does nothing new to Nunslaughters form of extreme metal.
The re-recordings on the second disk is much better if you want to get to know Nunslaughter´s music. There´s this unique formula that identifies Don of the Dead & Company on that material. Complexity is not a thing Nunslaughter focus on, this is old school death metal with easy but chrusing riffs accompanied by Don´s easily deciphered vocal on top.
"Angelic Dread" may be for older fans only, but if you wondered all this years what Nunslaughter was about but did not want to buy the various 7" on ebay for a pile of dollars now is your chance to get to enjoy them with a nice and crisp production on top.
