Recorded less than a year before Mike's passing, Slaves To The Grave was to going to herald the band's long overdue comeback. In February 2012, RIGOR MORTIS entered 13th Planet Studios in El Paso, and recorded the 10 tracks that would become STTG. The artwork was done Michael Broom.
Without question, this record contains some of Mike's finest work. In his zone and with no restraints, he delivered some absolutely stellar performances. His solo at the end of "Blood Bath", for instance, is absolutely breathtaking, exposing more heart and soul than precious few of his contemporaries possess.
RIGOR MORTIS dedicates this record to Mike Scaccia 1965-2012.
