“Halfway There” will be released Worldwide May 26 via EMP LABEL GROUP, (May 10th in Japan via EMP/UNIVERSAL) the US based label of Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. “Halfway There”, the follow up to 2015’s independently released “Reflections In a Rear View Mirror”, is a stunning return to form for Slaughter, channeling the familiar Hard Rock sensibility of classic-era SLAUGHTER releases like Stick it to Ya and The Wild Life on “Hey You” and emotionally-charged title track “Halfway There”, with a mature, progressive, Metal bent, evidenced on cuts like “Devoted”, “Conspiracy”, and “Reckless”.
