Pig Heaven/Slaughter the Grey is the second EP by White Zombie, independently released as an EP in May 1986.[2][3] Two different pressings of this album were created (the only differences between the two being the different guitarists and the altered cover art), both of which were limited to 500 copies each. By this time drummer Peter Landau was replaced by Ivan de Prume, who would remain with the band until after the release of La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1, and guitarist Paul "Ena" Kostabi by Tim Jeffs.

Recording[edit]

Although only "Pig Heaven" and "Slaughter the Grey" were released, the band also recorded "Follow Wild", "Rain Insane", "Paradise Fireball", and "Red River Flow" in the same session. A bulk of the material was recorded in roughly two hours.[4]
