  • Boasting the awesome "Chemical Warfare," a regular staple of Slayer's live shows, the Haunting the Chapel EP was a more crucial stepping stone in the legendary L.A. band's career development than many give it credit for. Issued in between the band's very promising debut and the following year's more sonically ripened Hell Awaits, Haunting the Chapel offers important clues about this transition period, which saw Slayer's rock-based song structures give way to the non-linear, genre-defining style thereafter regarded as thrash metal's signature sound. Among the uniformly solid cuts here, the enduring fan favorite "Captor of Sin" is another highlight, making this a well-recommended release for committed Slayer fans. [Some CD versions of Slayer's debut, Show No Mercy, now feature Haunting the Chapel songs as bonus tracks.] ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Rubbish at it's best...
As if no one got over satanic imagery with bloody font in the 60's. And if that isn't enough, be bold enough to call your band slayer, dumbass comments regarding it's a "short album" - o rly? it's an EP!!

That being said, this is rubbish for promotion of any band. And I think it's the only EP slayer have ever released anyways. (Says something doesn't it)

Slayer got useless after they kept using the same riffs over and over again in each other album and Kerry King grew fat and started dissing Mustaine

An excellent bridging EP between the highly NWOBHM influenced Show Now Mercy and the more aggressive thrash based Hell Awaits this EP gives the listener a good indication of the refinement of the early SLAYER sound.
Hayden on
Only four songs here, this album is probably better produced than "Show No Mercy" but the songs aren't any better. The guitar solo's are just mindless shredding and bending techniques, the guitar riffs are repeditive, the drumming sucks and the vocals sound too much like venom.
George on
My favourite album by Slayer, not as melodic as their debut, this is Slayer at their rawest and most extreme. Four excellent songs here, highly reccomended to any fans of 80's proto black metal (the name given to venoms style of music, which this is similar to). Each song here is great and the guitar solo's are awesome.

Four tracks, of extreme thrash metal. It's so extreme I would classify the opening track "Chemical Warfare" as death metal. Very fast stuff, the vocals are great, the lyrics are evil, the guitar solo's are fast and memorable, the drumming is great, the basswork is good and the production is good. Contains my favourite Slayer song "Hanting The Chapel".
Christopher on
Any Slayer fans need this album, this shows a rawer, thrashier sound than Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits. With four tracks, this album goes for very short and will probably dissapoint alot of listeners. This is my favourite Slayer album, featuring my favourite slayer song "Chemical Warfare".
Daniel on
This album has only four songs, and none of them are good. The first song while not being good is nowhere near the worst with prtty good riffing. the last song aggressive perfector is by far the worst slayer song i have heard the vocals annoy me. nobody should buy this, get god hates us all if you want some of slayers best material.
Daniel on
This four song EP has alot to offer.
Track one "Chemical Warfare" starts off the album with one of the best thrash metal song's I have ever heard. This song was a huge influence on the death metal (and thrash metal scene). It finsihes on a high note, making this an essential for any thrash metal fans collection. 10/10
