BESTIAL SLAUGHTER was formed in August of 2007 by Abed on guitar/bass,
Mahmoud on vocals and Shady he is a session drummer.
2- Who are your musical influences?

3- What are your songs about?
Our lyrical themes talks about death,life,destruction,evil,hell and heaven, Satanism and alcohol.
4- What inspires your band?
Well the society we live in, and the things our country passes through and how people treat each other in a fucked up way makes us disgusted of how the way of life is so we try to express our aggression and the bad habits in our music, and if u are asking what inspires our band(musically) you can just say Possessed slaughter and Death(first two albums and all Demos)…
5- Why did you choose to play Death/thrash specifically?
Well as you can see we are influenced by a lot of thrash/punk and heavy metal and also death metal, when we started thinking of starting a band we thought of thrash metal but then we listened to more music and then saw that Death metal started as Thrash metal but with more harsh vocals and a little faster, we liked the genre and we are very influenced by Chuck Schuldiner’s old music so we said why not start a death/thrash band and ended up here.
6- Will we see anything live from you?
Well we can’t promise that you will be seeing us live we have no drummer, since there is a lack of drummers in Lebanon and until we find a decent drummer you might expect another demo or new originals that we will release.
Thanks for the interview, Keep the metal faith alive.
