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.
I beg to differ.
1. South of Heaven exempts Seasons from being included in the streak.
2. No. And Show No Mercy is pretty damn perfect.
3. I dislike most everything about SoH, but the worst part is Tom Araya's vocals. They don't even sound evil.
4. All 3 sucked, World Painted Blood was equal to Death Magnetic but Slayer as people have much more dignity than Metallica, so I would rank them higher.
