Behemoth - Slave Shall Serve EP

Released : 20 October 2005 (Europe), February 7, 2006 (North America)
Genre : Death metal
Length : 21:12
Label : Regain, Century Media
Producer : Nergal

This is a long single-based EP from the new gods of Death Metal. The outtakes from the soon-to-be classic album Demigod include the original track "Entering the Pylon ov Light" and 3 cover songs recorded during the same studio sessions. Behemoth are excellent live, I've seen them, and the 2 live tracks here don't disappoint. There is also a video of the title track. It's a strong testament to the quality of a band when the cover songs can't match the quality of the band's own originals. That happens here to a stupifying degree.
Still, this is an EP based on a song already available on Demigod, so I can't give it a higher rating. Newbies should definitely purchase the full album, followed by Zos Kis Cultus and then if you are still grooving, pick up Satanica and Thelema.6. There's enough metal right there to make you forget Britny Spears had kids. Crucify the weak by the fossilized sodomy of wars past; Behemoth crushes all.
