    It is not necessary to post as to why you voted the way you did, but it would be interesting to the rest of us.

    Note - For your vote to be counted, you must check the box at the top of the thread. By just making a post to comment on your selection will not include that selection in the poll.

    Note - To keep it at one thread there is 1 album I did not include in the poll options. That is the latest album titled World Painted Blood. You may still vote for that album by posting as a comment.

    That's a pretty tough one since Reign in Blood, South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss are equally top-notch thrash albums. I voted for Reign in Blood, just for the legacy.

    By the way: Decade of Agression Live is the shit.

    I agree that Reign in Blood, South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss are all total classics.

    Reign in Blood is the most influential and is a very good album. A lot of the tracks on South of Heaven are also personal favourites of mine.

    But I picked Seasons in the Abyss because it is kind of a combination of the full-on thrash of Reign in Blood and the slower, gloomier feel of South of Heaven - and it also has a lot of classic tracks on it.

    Yeah, Reign in Blood really sums what the group is about. "Bloodline" is probably one of my favorite songs.

    Everything Slayer does is great! Reign in Blood gets my vote and then South of Heaven then Seasons!

  7. #7


    The best Schlayer album will be th' last one. )

    Tough one indeed! :) but my personal favorite is South of Heaven. Used to be on endless play in my car back in the day :) I love the overall sound, compositions and engineering of this album. To me it was also a transitory time for Slayer after Reign in Blood. Not to say the others, especially Seasons are lesser albums, this one just had more staying power for me

    I'm not that big on metal anymore but Slayer will always be one of my faves. Even though Reign in blood is amazing I think Seasons was a better album overall.
