Show No Mercy is arguably(by me at least

South of Heaven begins the spiral of Slayer becoming the lame band they are today. Granted they are better than all the other big 4 currently are, but nothing they have done can hold a candle to SNM. Nothing.
Let me pick this apart piece by piece.
1. Show No Mercy to Seasons in the Abyss is by far the best.
2. South of Heaven is in the top probably 5 or 10 thrash albums of all time for me, but nothing by Slayer is the best.
3. South of Heaven was their peak.
4. They are not better than the rest of the Big 4. They're better than Anthrax because as far as I know Anthrax aren't doing anything, but Death Magnetic and Endgame are both pretty awesome albums, and World Painted Blood...isn't. At all.
