5.0 out of 5 stars Groove, Thrash classic, 30 Jan 2005
This review is from: Slaughter In The Vatican/The Law (Audio CD)
Both slaughter in the vatican and the law are great albums mixing the groove similar to pantera with brutal thrash riffs, Exhorder are one of the underrated bands of the thrash era. There are many people who say phil anselmo got his vocal style from kyle thomas and there is a distinct sound from both singers. From start to finish both albums are sheer excellence in thrash, Slaughter in the vatican is the fastest and thrashest of the 2 and the law is heavier and in my opinion slightly better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slaytera..., 2 Feb 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slaughter In The Vatican/The Law (Audio CD)
Having read a favourable review of the first of the two albums in this collection in a weekly rock magazine I went and ordered it from this site. At first I was a bit disappointed by the almost demo-like quality of the recordings (be warned, it is a top-end heavy mix) but look through this and you will be pulverised by an almighty album of Slayer-like thrash/death metal. It has been alledged that this band were a heavy influence on Pantera's 'new' sound, and certainly the lead singer's vocals are very Phil Anselmo-esque, but musically everything on 'Slaughter...' especially is at least twice as heavy and ten times as fast as anything the Texas legends could muster, even at their most brutal. Out of the two, 1990's 'Slaughter...' is by far the better album, for on 'The Law' (1992, noticably a year after 'Cowboys From Hell' was released) it seems as if the Pantera comparisons had actually influenced their own music, being less speedy and slightly more groove-orientated, but still decent quality thrash. In short, if you love 'Reign In Blood' and wish Pantera would have given in to Phil's death metal dreams then these albums are for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 4 Nov 2014

This review is from: Slaughter In The Vatican/The Law (Audio CD)
Ferocious thrash. So glad I invested in these lost underated classics. Pantera meets Slayer to fight at a Testament show. Superb drummer, frantic guitarists, excellent vocals from Kyle Thomas. If no-frills/no-baggage thrash is your thing, invest in these albums. Awesome version of Sabbaths "Into the Void" on The Law too, an extra bonus.
