|Slayer Albums In Order Of Greatness|
South of Heaven
This album, although not speed metal is the best slayer album because a slow death is a painful and awesome one at that. Still classic slayer with the killer riffs, demonic solos, wicked drumming, and inaudible bass, but with a twist. best songs are, South of Heaven, Silent Scream, Live Undead, and Spill the Blood.
Reign in Blood
Reign in blood is a masterpiece no doubt, but I find it to be too short, clocking in at under half an hour, but the sheer brutality and speed more than makes up for it. best songs are, Angel of death, Altar of Sacrifice, Jesus Saves, Epidemic,Postmortem, and Raining Blood.
Hell Awaits is fucking evil, but still something was quite missing, the solos sounded a bit out of place, and the production wasnt up to par with their later releases, but none the less a damn good album. best songs are, Hell Awaits, At Dawn They sleep, and Hardening of The arteries.
Seasons in the Abyss
Seasons is still an awesome album even though it comes in number four, because they didnt really take anything a step further they just kind of mixed together Reign in Blood and South of Heaven, and sure awesome results followed,but it didnt have that freshness that slayer albums usually have. Best songs are, Deadskin Mask, Born of Fire,war ensemble, temptation, And Seasons in the Abyss
Show no Mercy
Show no mercy was awesome in its own right, but it was missing a whole lot of feel and personality, and the production is similar too that of venom's black metal, which means that the production is shit, but underneath that you find a hell of an album. best songs are,The antichrist,Metal storm/face the Slayer,Fight till death, and Die by the Sword.
Divine loses major points for not having dave lombardo, but paul bostaph does an alright job, the guitars sound weird, and the drumming isnt as good as it used to be, but the solos are the best part of the album...probably the best solos in a slayer record period, but that cant save this album. best songs are, Killing Fields, Ditto head, Circle of beliefs,Divine Intervention, and Mindcontrol.
God Hates Us All
Now dont get me wrong this album is good but it just doesnt really sound like slayer, the solos are nothing but wah filled shit props to kerry king, but the drumming is spectacular almost up to lombardo's standards, the vocals are in your face and real, and the guitar sound is brutal, but still not enough to save this album. Best songs are, Disciple, Threshold, Warzone, and Payback.
Slayer said that they went back to their old school sound, but to tell you the truth they were even further from it then God Hates Us All, The aggression seems so forced,the production is bland,the solos are not up to par with their earlier releases, and the guitar riffs are so bland and reused throughout this whole mediocre album, the same old chugga chugga palm muting shit over and over again. Best songs are, fleshstorm,Cult,and Supremist
Diabolus in Musica
This is not Real Slayer, they went all nu metal on us and to tell you the truth it sucks. Best songs are, Bitter Peace, Deaths head, And Point.
|I can't stand Slayer, so this list means nothing to me. Good descriptions though.|
|yeah slayer are worthless IMO|
|I'll second that statement.|
|a metal list with some effort and you guys still act like pricks gg|
|Good to see another Slayer fan on the site who isn't a complete idiot and can actually write complete sentences.|
#1, 2, 4, and 9 would be in the same spots for me, but the rest would be different. I also fucking worship Christ Illusion.
|Nice list, tho I would have Christ Illusion alil higher.|
|From what I've listened to in slayer idk if i completely agree. True I haven't heard Hell Awaits, Seasons in the Abyss, or 5-7 but I think Christ Illusion is their best album right under South of Heaven.|
|Basically same thing said as south of heaven 11 and rockstar.|
|South of Heaven deserves to be 1st it rocks, good list dude|
|swap 1 and 4 round, and then swap 7 and 8 round, and i'd agree. pretty solid list though, all told.|
|Thanks for the feedback guys....christ illusion for me is meh, but i dont know i thought that there thrash comeback would be a lil better, but thats just me.|
