Availability in major chains = people are buying them.
I can kind of see this, back in the day Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits were very hard to find in stores while Reign In Blood and South of Heaven had much better distribution, going to a major record label starting with Reign In Blood really helped Slayer's production and reach. Of course for this to be an issue everyone in attendance would have to be old enough to have bought these albums when they first came out which a lot of Slayer fans probably aren't.
