This is a fantastic EP by Slayer. Even though it only has for tunes, it is a classic. Two out of the four songs were also featured in Slayer's live Album Decade of Agressions which was released many years after it. For you to have an idea, the full length classic album Hell Awaits, which is more or less from the same time landed only one song in the live album. Following are coments of the songs individually ranked from best to really great but not as fantastic as the one above:
CHEMICAL WARFARE: Any comments made about this song will be fall short of doing justice to its greatness. Plus, if you are a Slayer fan you already know it.
CAPTOR OF SIN: Heavy and fast, this is pure Slayer. The song starts with a killer guitar lead and never lets down. Its chorus sticks to your mind for ever.
AGRESSIVE PERFECTOR: This is Slayer's very first song. It was released for the first time in the album METAL MASSACRE 3 - a compilation of then upcoming bands by Metal Blade Records. They got it right since the first song.
HAUNTING THE CHAPEL: The title track of this EP is its least significant song. Its great, though. It is a shame that the band seems to have forgotten all about it. You never hear they play it live. Purchasing this album is probably the only chance you will have to enjoy it.

When i first purchased this album and popped it in my 500 watt car stereo system's cd player, my initial prejudgement was that the sound quality was really bad. I started to mess with the equalizer to try to make it sound better, but i gave up when i drifted across the center line and narrowly avoided a head on collision with a semi. I finally got used to the differentness of the sound as compared to slayer's later albums and heard the music and lyrics for what they were worth. I grew to appreciate and love aria's proclamatory, almost preacher like tone rising above the relentless tumult of lombardo's double bass in the title track. Not to mention the evil guitar riffs in chemical warfare pounded out by king and that other guy (forgot name). I was suprised when i first heard Aggressive Perfector's unusual and somewhat upbeat tone. This track is especially unique in that it is actually catchey unlike slayer's other songs. There are only 4 tracks on this album but that's ok because all of the songs are like 10 minutes long and they are all good. This album is short , sweet, and sooo 80's. Its perfect.

After being blown away by "Show No Mercy", I knew I had to get more Slayer. Now, I haven't changed my mind, but I had higher hopes for this album. It is heavy and intense, but it is much less intricate than most of "Show No Mercy". The solos are kinda sloppy (what happened to those fast fingers from "The Final Command"?) and there are hardly any rhythm changes. The music in "Chemical Warfare" is almost exactly the same all the way through. But, it's still a cool song, very fast and hard. Dave Lombardo is one wicked drummer. Another thing is that the lyrics in the title track are Satanic, and really dumb. I'm not exactly religious, but it all just seems stupid. But, it's still a good song if you don't pay attention to what he's saying. "Captor of Sin" had a cool riff, I believe, but there's not much to say about it. "Aggressive Perfector" is pretty cool, aside from the fact that it almost sounds like a square dancing song (really, listen to the clip). I would recommend any of Slayer's 80's albums over this one, especially "Show No Mercy", but for the completist, go ahead and buy it. If you like fast, extreme metal, and you don't mind a little pseudo-blasphemy, "Haunting the Chapel" is a can't-miss. It ain't brilliant, but it ain't bad.

While Slayer's 1983 debut "Show No Mercy" wasn't a bad debut by a longshot, at the time it had a "been there, done that" feel to it. Slayer followed up with this EP that would become an instant classic to Slayer fans mostly because of the great fan favorite "Chemical Warfare". "Captor of Sin" is a hard hitting track while the title track would begin Slayer's trademark of fantastic title tracks on their following albums. An early version of "Aggressive Perfector" is included here as a bonus track and is pretty solid (a faster version would be included on the remastered re-release of Slayer's 1986 classic "Reign in Blood"). The only problem with this EP is the shoddy production values, but that is a staple on any of Slayer's Metal Blade re-releases. All in all, this is an essential addition to any Slayer fan's music library.

This is classic slayer, sounds like a mix of show no mercy and hell awaits. There is only 4 songs but all 4 are brutal and very catchy thrash speed metal. The title song is one of slayers most underated tracks ever. i wish they would play this song live once in a while. the riff is classic and lyrics are vintage slayer. The song starts with tom screaming "the holy cross, symbol of lies, intimidate the lives of christian born" gotta love that. Chemical warfare is the one of my favorite speed metal songs of all time and captor of sin is crazy too. The bonus track aggressive perfector is also found on some copies of show no mercy lp and really gives you an idea of how they sounded when they first came out. Get this ep to complete your slayer collection. its only weakness is its short length but its still classic music for the best speed metal band of all time.
