Harnessing the spirit of early ‘80s Thrash Metal, Dublin-based four-piece, Saint Slaughter drive their intensive brand of classic Metal into your skull with their latest belter, ‘Led To Treason’.

The new single follows on from their previous release, ‘Inglorious’ – a boisterous, snarling tip of the hat to artists such as Sadus, Sodom, Kreator, and ‘Kill em’ All’-era Metallica.

Speaking of the new track, the band says; “‘Led To Treason’ is a song about how propaganda and the war industry, take people’s ideals and urge to defend them into fuel for a meat grinder, that only serves people who view war as a bump in their stock portfolio.”

Having built a strong presence in the flourishing Irish Metal scene post-lockdown, Saint Slaughter are truly a force to be reckoned with live. The bands shows are a hurricane of good, friendly violent fun, where punters throw down their best, ‘Toxic Waltz’ pit-moves almost every time.

The band reached the highly coveted Grand Final of this years Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses Ireland showcase in May, and have fast been regarded as one of the most exciting Thrash bands to emerge from the Irish underground.

Their most recent announcement sees them added as official support to UK Thrashers, Xentrix for their 30th Anniversary Tour this coming October, where they will share the bill with fellow, Irish Thrashers, Psykosis and others.
