Seriously, the fast thrash stuff was good, but Show No Mercy is one of the
defining metal albums I think, in terms of sheer kickassness. Besides, Dark Angel did 'Reign In Blood' better anyways.
Come on ADD, even the progger in you knows that the correct answer is 5 more albums like Hell Awaits. Sure Show No Mercy was fun, but evolution is even more fun.
I say wait til they got the Rubin contract for Hell Awaits, tack on Angel, Post and Raining, then you would have had the real
Reign In Blood.
I also agree with the Dark Angel comment. Burning Of Sodom was basically what "Necrophobic", except extended into a full 3 minute piece.
