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) on October 22 via Metal Blade Records.

You can pre-order your copies now 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.
