The world witnessed one of the most coordinated musical maelstroms when SLAYER unsheathed album after album, starting in 1983 with “Show No Mercy”. “Hell Awaits” followed in 1985 with a dazzling lead-in EP before it. All a mere prelude for the din of “Reign In Blood” (LP in 1986). “South Of Heaven” in 1988 and “Seasons In The Abyss” that followed. The band’s creativity flowed like a freight train hauling as* at 100 mph.
SLAYER made the most extreme, yet musical albums ever captured in the recording studio.
Face the SLAYER.
