Slayer - Haunting the Chapel (1984)
If you take a moment to notice, this entry is being posted on June 6, 2006, or 06/06/06, also known as The International Day of Slayer. So ever one must blast Slayer all day long till their neighbors ears bleed!!!! Fucking Slayer!!!!!!!!!!! ok, if you don't have any slayer handy but are by a computer (i know you are), go to their official web site slayer.net and check out the sample track "Cult" off their latest album that should be out on July 25th.
I wasn't origionaly going to put up any Slayer albums becuase they are all still in print and rather easy to find. I do own most of them on vinyl.
Luckly I remembered that I had this EP, Haunting the Chapel, which is still somewhat hard to find. There is a CD reissue that also has the track "Aggressive Perfector" which is also included on the CD issues of Reign in Blood. I know there's a fast version of that song and an earlier slower version, but I don't own any slayer on CD so im not sure.
Either way, "Aggressive Perfector" isn't on the original 3 song EP so I don't have it. But the three songs that are on it are absolutly killer. I think every one agrees that the 6 minute mastepiece "Chemical Warfare" is the best song on here, and in my opinion, one of the best Slayer songs ever. This EP is realy where the band step out from other bands at the time and showed that they were in a total league of their own. It was issued right after their first album, Show No Mercy, which still had some very faint elements or rock and roll in it. Haunting the Chapel compleatly left any concept of rock and roll behind heading dick-first into the deep and uncharted depths of ungodly metal.
