Slayer: Haunting the Chapel 12" (clear / blood splatter vinyl)

Metal Blade Records

$24.50

Classic 1984 EP from the almighty Slayer. Definitely more raw and primitive than the band's more well-known material, Haunting the Chapel is much closer to the classic Venom / Bathory template, though Slayer are already developing their insane chops as well as now-familiar tricks like brutal double-bass drumming. Only 4 songs, but they're four bangers that are absolutely essential to the Slayer oeuvre. Pressed on clear vinyl w/ red blood splatters. Metal Blade Records
