Slayer - South of Heaven

Full Album

Slayer's best album. A much-needed break from just SPEEEEEED and nothing else, this showed that slow songs can be just as evil as breakneck ones. The 1-2 punch of South Of Heaven -> Silent Scream is a perfect example of how the two styles work so well together. It's better song-writing than Reign In Blood and more thrash than Seasons In The Abyss. I really don't know what else to say than it's the best thrash album released by the Big Four and maybe even the greatest thrash record ever. It's evil as fuck, and isn't that what Slayer is all about? 666 horns out of 666.
