SLAYER Announce Multi-Format Reissues Of Metal Blade Catalogue

On October 22, 5-time nominated, 2-time Grammy winners, Slayer, will release CD, cassette, and vinyl reissues of their classic records Show No Mercy (1983), Haunting The Chapel (1984), Live Undead (1984), and Hell Awaits (1985) via Metal Blade Records. See below for available versions and tracklistings; pre-order your copies here.

Formed in 1981, Slayer assaulted the world with a new hybrid of metal and punk - heavier, faster and darker than the rest - and set a new standard, defining not only a genre, but an attitude. Throughout Slayer's history, the band never faltered in unleashing their extreme and focused aural assault, and repudiating temptations, Slayer always chose to remain crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.
