1984, when Slayer's second studio recording (and their first and only ever EP) was released, was kind of a transitional phase/album for this four piece. "Haunting the Chapel" finds Slayer giving up the traditional rock-based song structures in favor of a different style, which would come to be known as thrash-metal's "signature sound." Therefore this disc is more important than some give it credit for, even though it's only seventeen minutes, Plus, "Haunting the Chapel" shows signs of the band's greatness, Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman set their fret-boards on fire with blistering riffs and scorching solos, Add some deft drumming by Dave and Tom's eerie vocals and you have an album which is a precursor to Slayer's 1986 classic "Reign In Blood."
