I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Slayer - Haunting the Chapel [1984]

"Chemical Warfare" is one hell of a great kick-off to this album. This is definitely the "missing-link" in slayer's stylistic transition to what they would be for the next few decades. The production is pretty good. It feels alive and it's not weak at all. Certainly my favorite of the early Slayer albums. This is one of the wonderful things about EPs, the band can focus on making an awesome album from start to finish instead of a long album.

Rating: 7.75
