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.

I hardly pay attention to what those fags say in interviews and I'll take your word for it. What I'm telling you is that RiB was considered the genre's manifesto by 'zines/fans back in 1988-89 already, whoever was there at the time can confirm that.

Show No Mercy is one of the most evil albums ever made.

I worship Slayer up to Reign in Blood, but they have some good songs on South and Seasons.

Show No Mercy of korpse. I like their albums up to Divine Intervention, haven't even paid attention to them since then. I have fond memories of lifting weights whilst listening to Seasons In the Abyss and Reign In Blood - musckle music!

And agree with someone else, Haunting the Chapel should be on the list...if only it had been a full length...perhaps the best album?

I love everything up to and including Seasons. RIB is my favorite - it was one of the first extreme metal tapes I ever got and to this day no album has ever affected me so much. It transformed me from a dorky little Def Leppard fan into...a dorky fan of Morbid Angel. Laughing

Seriously though, RIB played for the first time into the ears of a 10 year old kid? Fucking devastation.

@NK7 - agreed. My experience was that everyone I knew who even remotely liked metal thought of RIB as something untouchable, even frightening. And this was a looooooong time before Sharon Osbourne first showed her twat on MTV.

Not the biggest Slayer fan here (I wouldn't even call myself a "fan" actually), but their importance and influence is undeniable.

My very un-kvlt list would be:

1. Hell Awaits
2. Haunting the Chapel
3. Reign in Blood
4. Seasons in the Abyss
5. Show No Mercy

Darkness Descends > RiB btw. Very Happy

After Hell Awaits they traded in their "evil" sound for a more "brutal" one. I like the evil sounding albums better, with Show No Mercy being my favorite.

Old timer Brits will probably recognise that vid from The Power Hour. Amazing.

I go back and forth between Hell Awaits and Reign in Blood as favorites. I chose the latter for this poll. I enjoy everything they released up to and including Divine Intervention (plus "Gemini" from Undisputed Attitude). I felt extremely let down by Diabolus in Musica when it was released and my opinion didn't change with God Hates Us All. The albums with Lombardo's return are better but still nowhere near the quality of their earlier material. "Psychopathy Red" was an extreme and pleasant surprise; almost sounds like they composed that song during the Reign in Blood sessions.

I'm in accord with the others who like Darkness Descends more than RiB, too. Morbid Saint's Spectrum of Death should be mentioned alongside those two aforementioned thrash titans as well.
