Deb Frazin Photo Column—Slaughterhouse

Slaughterhouse has finally released their long-awaited debut album Fun Factory, and it’s thirty-two sizzling minutes of FIRE! The album was recorded, engineered, and mixed by Fletcher Dragge (Pennywise) and Patrick Burkholder at Screaming Leopard Studio in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Fun Factory is loaded with twelve new, kick-ass songs that you won’t be able to get enough of throughout the rest of the year. I was so happy that they re-recorded two of my favorite older songs “T.V. Age” and “Reflection” (from their 2018 EP) for the new album. (Those songs are way too good to have been left behind.) Out of the ten new songs, “911,” “Paranoia,” and “Seasons” are the real standouts. This is the kind of album where you’ll find yourself picking a new favorite song every week.

Taylor Ramirez’s gothy guitar tone gives Slaughterhouse their distinctive sound that stands out from the other bands in the L.A. music scene (not an easy thing to do). Veronica Molidor’s cool, tough vocals, Eddie Cairns’ mighty bass and Ramirez’s guitar all melt together like butter and honey as Nick Aguilar’s drums roll ferociously throughout the album (one of the best drummers in L.A.). Slaughterhouse is (and will always be) one of my favorite local bands.

You get twelve songs on Fun Factory, and every single one of them is a gem!
