That's so fuckin wrong! Don't get how even a casual fan wouldn't know RIB or Hell Awaits.

I should clarify: Raining Blood and Angel of Death always get great reactions. Otherwise, most of the other pre-Seasons songs seem to go over people's heads.

It's not that people don't like those songs, but it's obvious that a lot of fans either aren't familiar with them or are just catching a breather until the next more "popular" Slayer song kicks in.

A decent amount of them are probably unaware of the fact that Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits exist.

At least that's how it was for me when I first started listening to Slayer when I was about 13 or so. I thought Reign In Blood was their first album.

$40? My hatred for Toronto grows stronger. They're charging twice that, before taxes, service fees, convenience fees, handling fees and whatever other arbitrary surcharge they can think of.

How's that even possible nowadays? With the internet, there's no excuse to be ignorant towards a band's discography. Hell, I got into Slayer long before I had the internet and somehow I was still aware of their discography. I think the issue is Reign in Blood being Slayer's "cool" album, while Hell Awaits and Show No Mercy are much less... "cool". (Even though both albums wipe the floor with Reign in Blood)

I call bullshit on so-called fans not knowing the first two albums. Throughout the years I've seen way more copies of the first two albums available than I have Diablous In Musica and God Hates Us All.

Availability in major chains = people are buying them.

Is that really surprising though? Gojira are a band that actively puts out fantastic music, and Slayer are a band that haven't done that for around 20 years. It seems like each is just playing to their strengths.
