Slave is the debut album by Alternative metal/hardcore punk band Amen. It was written and recorded nearly entirely by Casey Chaos independently through his label, Drag-u-la Recordings and released in 1994. The initial run of the album was limited to 2,000 copies. In 2006, the album was re-released and remastered with bonus tracks through Casey Chaos's new label, Refuse Music.[2] As a result of this album, Amen attracted the attention of producer Ross Robinson who had previously worked on Korn's debut album.
