The title probably needs a few instances of “again” sprinkled throughout, but whatever. Metal Blade is presumably in the very early stages of putting out new vinyl presses of early Slayer recordings, as evidenced by their decision to announce this through one of our competitors. This rerelease focuses on Slayer’s earliest releases – their first two studio albums, as well as the Live Undead and Haunting the Chapel EPs. Like many of these vinyl reprints, it seems to be fairly limited in scale – only about 1200-1500 of each album is going to be pressed, and any collector who misses these is going to have to wait for a new pressing or content themselves with one of the many older versions. The actual musical content of these records is worth your time, anyways, which is something you can’t say about every record released.

Metal injection…..more like metal INFILTRATORS!
Why is every other metal site so SJW-tinged?
We know that Varg Vikernes has questionable beliefs about race. But that doesn’t make his music any less valuable. It doesn’t even make him a 100% bad person, because the world is more complex than simply being black and white, like these fools are too scared to admit.
Metalsucks and Metalinjection have both on occasion tried to tell me what I should not listen to, because of the nature of the composer.
If I had that mindset, then I wouldn’t be able to enjoy anything. It’s dumb. The world is not binary. Nothing is 100% good or 100% bad. Besides, the music is separate from the creator.
The only exception is Metal-archives, since that is simply an open encyclopedia in which any one can write. There, you will surely find some individuals trying to police art, but at least it’s not “from above”. It’s not from the governing body of the site.
