If you've never heard of Slot before, you're about to. They just announced they will be releasing their first English-language album, "Break The Code", in the United States. This is huge not only because it is so rare that a Russian band releases material in the US, but because they also have a rabid worldwide fanbase that has been begging for this since their "2 Vojny" video became a viral hit.
Why should the MODDB Metal Appreciation Society care? One, because both lead singers Nookie and Cache scream their way through tracks like "Bullet" and "Kill me" with wild abandon. Two, because rumor has it they are also plotting a U.S. tour, and trust me when I say you want to see these guys live!
Did I mention Nookie is sexy as #@!%?
So the album drops August 23rd. Included are English translations of some of their greatest hits like "Lego", "Two Wars", and "Dead Stars", along with new tracks like "Break the Code". Listening to the preview, I have no doubt in my mind this will be Slot's heaviest album yet. "Bullet" has been made even heavier in translation, and the fact that it is only the second song on a 15-track album means this is going to be one hell of a ride.
And no, I'm not their manager. Just one of those aforementioned rabid fans.
