Biography

Pittsburgh, United States (1987 – present)

Nunslaughter was formed in Pittsburgh in 1987 by Don of the Dead (bass) with Jer the Butcher (guitar), Gregoroth (vocals) and Behemoth Bill (drums). NunSlaughter began spewing forth the sonic vomit known as . Taking lessons from the learning experience of their earlier bands Death Sentence and Bird of Prey, they shunned the confines of a studio in favor of the oppressive darkness of a basement tomb to record their first demo in 1987. Christened Ritual Of Darkness, its raw sound established Nunslaughter as purveyors of .

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 demo, The Rotting Christ, emerged shortly thereafter. 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.
