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.

One of the few statements in that post I agree with. That album was lame.

1. Yup.

2. I'd say South of Heaven is right behind Rust in Peace for best by the Big 4, haven't really thought about thrash overall.

3. Sure

4. World Painted Blood is better than Death Magnetic, but not Endgame.

hurrrrrrrrrrrmyopniion

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.

The 5% was the fact that they played Reborn, a crappy song from that album instead of a far superior Show No Mercy effort, like Face The Slayer of Crionics.
I like you

I'm listening to the Birmingham April 19 th, 1987 bootleg show of this tour right now and really it's fucking amazing. No Evil Has No Boundaries though but fuck me it's just pure fucking lovable aggressive Slayer !


funny that Tom was introducing Hell Awaits which I didn't think he ever did


long Live Slayer


Cheers !
