I totally agree. Reign in Blood is a great record, but it's not the epitome of the genre that it's been made out to be by the Ozzfest generation. To me, it was the first album where they took a clear step downward.

very hard to pick up one album amongst others. voted for Hell awaits, maybe because the opening/final riff is one of the most crushing and mindblowing moment in the history of metal.

...but I never understand why Divine intervention get so few recognition. it's a great, underrated album imo. the sound sucks but it's filled with killer tracks, hardcore violence and a truly ugly and sinister atmosphere. not their best of course but still a more than decent album, and their last worth listening.
(yeah, you can throw me stones now).

Whatever your tastes, or however it compares to everything else in restrospect, RiB was already a hugely significant album when I started listening to metal in the late 80s - pretty much the 'set text' for thrash. Trying to make out its legendary status is the result of nu metal revisionism just rings hollow.

You can't possibly be serious. RiB was considered the climax of the genre at least 15 years before the Osbourne family came up with the idea for their sad festival of Korn-worshipping retards.

If you are oblivious to the fact that over the last 10 years Reign in Blood has been hyped way beyond what's necessary, and that it's pretty much because of these metalcore/nu metal idiots, I don't know what to tell you. Not only is Reign in Blood not the climax of the genre, it's not even the climax of their own career. It's an amazing album, but the fact remains.
