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.

Hell Awaits hands down... That album is actually evil. It sounds evil at least for me and it has some progressives touches in it that are brilliant.

Good stuff. Their pre-RiB is awesome.

Went with South of Heaven. The album is just solid from beginning to end. But Show No Mercy, Hell Awaits, and Reign in Blood are extremely good albums too.

In my opion all their first five are pretty good.
Show No Mercy: Was a pretty cool thrashy punkish metal album.
Hell Awaits: Brings out a progressive side of Slayer, never to be seen again.
Reign in Blood: This album is total fucking carnage, trapped on a disc.
South of Heaven: Great mid-tempo stuff, Dave can even rip the kit at slower speeds.
Seasons in the Abyss: Combines the previous two, so you get some mid-tempo stuff, mixed with more carnage.

SHOW NO MERCY!!! What's not to like? It has the aggression of a hardcore album, the awesome satanic verses of an early venom release, and the pure animosity of thrash. It's a win, win, WIN!

I actually really enjoy Christ Illusion. I dont think that it is their second best by any means. Their top 5 albums will always be the first five for me. In no particular order.

That's what I meant...Christ Illusion is miles from the great 5.

Well if you attend to significance, they will be their debut showing no mercy to current metal scene and helping to create the ambiance for Death and most savage Thrash. Reign in blood was the consecration of their style, their climax and it is amazing in every sense, but.....fuck I like more Seasons in the Abyss: the slow and middle tempo songs there are simply beautiful and the lyrics are also impressive.

Ok, my opinion: I always found Slayer to be totally consistent and at no point in their career do they fail to bring on the thrash . For this reason I tend to just go on Slayer binges with no particular preference for any album. I will say that the "Payback" kicks excruciating quantities of ass, though.


Thats a good opinion. Slayer has been extremely consistent their entire career and have never made a terrible album. I don't care what people say but God Hates us All is a killer album. Seasons in the Abyss is my favorite though. fallowed by South of Heaven

It's not even on the list lol.

I voted Reign In Blood because overall it's there most solid album IMO but all there releases are good in one way or another. Even though the pre-seasons releases weren't that great, at least the songs had more than one riff-per song. And atleast they didn't ReRelease an album (yes, that's pointed at Metallica)

This was a definite gimme. Reign in Blood is the best among great albums. Slayer has been solid and all their releases have been worth listening to.

Seasons in the Abyss for me. Has also crazy tempo that Slayer are known for and also mid-tempo. Much more varied than RIB, you can actualy recognize when one song has been end and another one has started. Great catchy riffs with insane solos, dark and brutal lyrics and creative drumming. Slayer at their best .
