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.

Seasons in the Abyss was a phenomenal album that really showed the band's lyrical prowess. Especially Dead Skin Mask, the serial killer theme in that song really brought out a sense of paranoia in me for the first week after hearing it, of course I was 10-years-old at the time.

Show No Mercy is one of my personal favorites. Seasons In The Abyss is phenominal too.

Hard to pick between their first 5 albums, ("Haunting The Chapel" is an EP, so it shouldn't be included in this poll....) but my choice is "South Of Heaven". Which also happens to be the first Slayer album I ever heard. It exudes a chilling atmosphere which is unique to only this Slayer album. I dunno if it's the production, or what. But the sound gives me the chills!

I would say "Reign in Blood", of course. But then I also point "South of Heaven" and "Seasons in the Abyss" as my favourite Slayer albums, though the masterpiece is "Reign in Blood", yeh.

Seasons in the Abyss was probably their most thrash-oriented album, so that gets my vote.

Reign in Blood is totally overrated its just filler songs with the exception of Angel of Death and Raining Blood. Seasons in the Abyss had more songs that stood out imo.

I have to pick Reign In Blood. It had the bands best songs. It showed the talent of each member, especially Dave and Jeff.
2. Show No Mercy 3. South Of Heaven 4. Tie for everything else.

Anyone who didn't vote Show no mercy is idiotic Slayer is a average band and reign in blood is a horrible album due to repetitiveness and morons claiming it to the best metal album of all time. Show no mercy was a great album if only they keep the same brutality without melodic thrash crap that is on south of heaven and seasons in the abyss

What? Show No Mercy is the most melodic/least brutal album Slayer ever did. "Tormentor" is an old school, pure heavy metal tune, not thrash at all. Same with "Crionics". lol

Seasons for me, for the wickedly twisted melodic parts (Dead Skin Mask)

I voted Hell Awaits. Probably the most evil Slayer album. How does GHUA have more votes than Hell Awaits? South of Heaven is one of my favorites too along with Show no Mercy. I know Reign in Blood is the most popular, but i prefer those albums better. It's still a killer album though. Seasons never did it for me. It gets boring. The title track is epic though.

I have to go with the first Slayer album i ever heard, Reign in Blood, closely followed by Seasons In The Abyss.

Hell awaits. It's basically a more thought out Reign in Blood; the same riff style but better riffs, better songs, just better everything. RiB and SoH would tie for second, Seasons and WPB for third, and I don't give a flying fuck about the rest.

Hell Awaits

Closely followed by Show No Mercy, then Reign In Blood. When it comes to Slayer, it has to be decided between the old albums, as far as I'm concerned, since I don't listen to anything post-RIB nowadays. I like Slayer with a rawer sound.

Couldn't agree more, but I might switch up HA for SNM. To me they're both so good I'd give them 1a and 1b instead of 1 and 2.

South of Heaven is great. I love it. And it was my choice, although "Reign In Blood" is also on the same level.

Seasons in the Abyss. I believe it to be the perfect blend of the fast and brutalness of Reign in Blood with the slow suspense of South of Heaven.
I'm also growing quite fond of World Painted Blood, but I'm not gonna vote for it since liking new Slayer material is uncool on MS.
