Hey guys, I made this poll because i'm a pretty big Slayer fan and I just wanted to know what their most appreciated album is. Personally I liked Reign in Blood the most because of its wicked fast speed and drumming, a close runner up would've been Show No Mercy for the same reasons. I know I left out a couple of albums but I'm sure we can all agree that I got their best works over all, and if I missed one that you personnally liked just vote "other". Just say which album you liked best by Slayer and give a little explanation to why you liked it. Also if you feel the need to bash one of the albums do it respectfuly and state why you don't like it in a polite way.

Ugh...of course everyone goes with Reign In Blood...*cough* *cough* *overrated**cough*

Shit, don't get me wrong--Reign In Blood is a fucking good album! I love it. But it has nothing on Hell Awaits. Hell Awaits is something out of this world. GREAT thrash album. Nobody here has voted for it, which disturbs me. I'll bet most of the people who voted RiB haven't even heard it...lol.

The only thing that bothers me about RiB (besides it being a disappointment after Hell Awaits) is that it is so damn OVERRATED....I mean, ok...Slayer sort of invented extreme metal (arguable statement), and I give them credit for that. Reign in Blood was what made them. It was groundbreaking. But Hell Awaits is a BETTER ALBUM, dammit.

Also, metal noobs tend to be RiB fanboys..."OmFg Reign in Blood is like so br00tal you guyz.."

Show No Fucking Mercy for me, awesome punk/thrash for headbanging and rinking beer!

O come on 3 votes for SHOW NO FUCKIN MERCY
In my opinion every Slayer album should be re released starting with the most recent and work backwards to SHOW NO MERCY
Blasting our way through the boundaries of Hell
No one can stop us tonight
We take on the world with hatred inside
Mayhem the reason we fight
Surviving the slaughters and killing we've lost
Then we return from the dead
Attacking once more now with twice as much strength
We conquer then move on ahead
CANT GET ANY BETTER

My voted go´s to South Of Heaven. I like Reign In Blood and God Hates Us All almost the same but South Of Heaven has a bit more to offer me when im looking to the complete album as a whole.

No one here dislikes Hell Awaits at all if you think that. In fact i'm a little shocked that it only has 1 vote as well lol (your right it was a friggin awsome album), but the fact is that it was more ground breaking and did more for metal then Hell Awaits ever could, I remember that there was an interview with Tom Araya where he said RIB was SLAYER's best/favourite album (so apparently not only noobs like it), and Slayer fans everywhere just bang their heads upon hearing it .
I understand why you're ticked off that so many favour RIB over Hell Awaits (I would be too, if I was in your position), but it earned it's status as one of the best Thrash albums ever man, and going as far as to say that metal noobs like RIB, or that most people here havent who voted for it havent heard RIB is just.....crazy lol.

Reign in blood of course!! I agree "Bullet Dodger". I like the Christ Illusion album too.

I know these Slayer album are very good: Show No Mercy, Hell Awaits, South Of Heaven, Seasons In The Abyss, Decade Of Aggression (live) and God Hates Us All. I wish all these album!!!

Decade of Aggresion is a great live album, for me Slayer is the best live group ever, I was first amazed by the low rating of "Undisputed Attitude" 6. something, and it sucks cause the album is great too it has speed and it has good riffs as well but anyway.........I think posserness is a worst sickness than elmo kids.....

RiB has their two best songs but the rest of the songs are just fucking fillers (except for "Altar of sacrife" and maybe "Criminally Insane").
Well, to their best album as a whole, Seasons in the abyss, yeah, it also has some fillers, but the only band i know who makes albums without fillers is Metallica.

For me, the best was Seasons in the Abyss. At least, that was their best studio album. Otherwise, Decade of Agression: Live is their best album IMO.

In this order:
Reign In Blood
Show No Mercy
Hell Awaits
Seasons In The Abyss
South Of Heaven

Reign In Blood has classic tracks such as Angel Of Death and Raining Blood. Just amazing. I would love to go out and buy every Slayer album if I were rich and then just have a party and break something

Reign In Blood
A nuclear CLASSIC.

20 years and nothing as brutal and thrashing at this has been released.

well this is a No-Brainer lol. Show No Mercy is awesome, Seasons is awesomer, but Reign in Blood is by far the awesomest of all Slayer albums released and not-yet-released.
