No, if you buy one Slayer album, let's be honest, you've bought one Slayer album.
Show No Mercy
doesn't sound anything like any other Slayer album, same goes for Hell Awaits
. South of Heaven
and Seasons in the Abyss
are pretty similar stylistically, but if you only buy Seasons, then you're gonna miss out on the great songs on South. The albums sound alike, but the songs do not. Those two also sound somewhat
like Reign in Blood
, but not entirely.
Even their later efforts don't really sound like each other. Diabolus
sounds nothing like the rest of their discography. Neither does GHUA
. Christ Illusion
are kinda similar. Divine Intervention
does sound a lot like Reign in Blood. That's it.
I'm just fucking sick of everybody saying that all of Slayer's albums sound the same. It's not true at all.
