Slaughtbbath - Contempt, War and Damnation.

South America has a fierce reputation for bringing us some of the best underground music with Chile one country contributing significantly to this reputation. From Santiago, Chile, Slaughtbbath is a band that has certainly released some of the finest underground music of recent years. 2013's critically acclaimed 'Hail to Fire' full length brought worldwide critical accliam and praise. Since then the band has had a number of fantastic split releases which they shared with bands such as Hades Archer and Grave Desecrator. 

To mark their first North American tour Hells Headbangers is set to release 'Contempt, War and Damnation' - a CD compilation that featuring tracks from all five splits since 'Hail to Fire,' along with a new and exclusive track, 'Astral Rape,' - the compilation is available to stream below. 
Read on for full press release details and a full listing of Slaughtbbath's North American tour with Communion and Slutvomit, a tour that also features a few Canadian dates.

In anticipation of their upcoming first North American tour this September, Hells Headbangers is proud to present a special compilation CD from Slaughtbbath entitled 'Contempt, War and Damnation.'
One of the most elite hordes in the shit-hot Chilean black/death scene, for a decade and a half now, Slaughtbbath have prolifically pursued a fierce 'n' fiery vision of total black/death metal. With a rich yet uniformly exemplary discography, this power-trio have laid waste to the underground across a myriad demos, splits, EPs, and 2013's now-classic debut album, 'Hail to Fire.'

Now aligned with Hells Headbangers since last year's red-eyed and raging split 7" with Grave Desecrator, Slaughtbbath hereby present an exclusive collection of tracks from their post-Hail to Fire period. Aptly titled 'Contempt, War and Damnation,' this seven-track CD compiles tracks from splits with Grave Desecrator, Ill Omen, Kill, and fellow Hells Headbangers cult Hades Archer as well as a rare compilation track and a brand-new song specifically recorded for this release. 
As ever going from strength to strength, 'Contempt, War and Damnation' displays a Slaughtbbath at the peak of their powers, pulsing with both bestiality and burliness alike, and yet exhibiting a nuanced songwriting nous that is second to none.

As North America quivers before Slaughtbbath's impending assault on its shores, prepare for 'Contempt, War and Damnation!'
