For those unfamiliar with the genius of Kilslug, I have a story for you.
Back in the 80s, we had no internet to give us instant music recommendations. I was a big fan of Ron Quintana’s Metal Mania zine and would pay close attention to their record reviews. They reviewed Kilslug’s “Answer the Call” and called it “Death Death Metal”. I was like, holy shit, how heavy can this be? So I bought it and brought it home…. and I was like “What the fuck is this SHIT?”. It was this dirge of noise and Larry Lifeless’ wailing about being a worm and stuff. Over time, I forced myself to listen to it because I spent money on it… and I started to like it. I have been a fan ever since.
In the early 90s, I found a cassette trader with a bunch of Kilslug master audio recordings so I snagged them all. It looks like only 1 or 2 are on YT so far, so you all get to be abused with Kislug the rest of the week.
Listen to the “Answer the Call” album for the properly recorded versions of these songs.
