Today we take a trip back in time to 1984 and an EP released by Slayer called Haunting The Chapel. Originally recorded as a 3 song EP, Haunting the Chapel marked the evolution of Slayer’s style and is often described as a “stepping stone of their classic sound.” The songs included on the original release of Haunting The Chapel were: Captor of Sin, Chemical Warfare and Haunting the Chapel. The re-issue featured a bonus track: Aggressive Perfector. Captor of Sin and Chemical Warfare are often included in Slayer set lists and considered fan favorites.
Unfortunately, Jeff Hanneman’s death has left a little bit of uncertainty on Slayer’s next move. Although Kerry King has said that the band will continue on, Tom Araya seems a little uncertain as to how the fans will react. Only time will tell!
