Slayer vs. Megadeth

With all the inevitable upcoming debating over Endgame vs. World Painted Blood I thought it would be interesting to debate each bands release in chronoligical order. Personally I have every Slayer cd rated over every Megadeth cd but that's just me. The only one that would be a 1st round KO would be Reign in Blood vs. So Far, So Good, So What and I've actually defended that cd on here several times. I just think RIB is the best cd of all time and I'll probably die thinking that barring a miracle Hail Mary.

When comparing cd's I did find it interesting that these bands put out cd's in the same year many times even though Megadeth was 1 behind Slayer at those times. For simplicity sake I left out Risk and Haunting the Chapel. If anyone would have Risk rated over the 3 songs on Haunting the Chapel that should be it's own flaming post. I think the most interesting matchups are Peace Sells vs. Hell Awaits, Countdown vs. Seasons, South of Heaven vs. Rust in Peace and the 2 new cd's. The Slayer cover cd vs. Cryptic and Christ Illusion vs. UA should garner some interesting opinions also. Here are the matchups. Let the debate begin...

1983 Show No Mercy vs. 1985 Killing is my Business

1985 Hell Awaits vs. 1986 Peace Sells

1987 Reign in Blood vs. 1988 So Far, So Good, So What

1988 South of Heaven vs. 1990 Rust in Peace

1990 Seasons in the Abyss vs. 1992 Countdown to Extinction

1994 Divine Intervention vs. 1994 Youthanasia

1996 Undisputed Attitude vs. 1997 Cryptic Writings

1998 Diabolus in Musica vs. 2001 The World Needs a Hero

2001 God Hates Us All vs. 2004 The System Has Failed

2006 Christ Illusion vs. 2007 United Abominations

2009 World Painted Blood vs. 2009 Endgame

1994 Divine Intervention vs. 1994 Youthanasia I do think DI is a really strong record though.

1996 Undisputed Attitude vs. 1997 Cryptic Writings Funny covers vs original material isn't much of a competition.

1998 Diabolus in Musica vs. 2001 The World Needs a Hero Both suck hard though.

2001 God Hates Us All vs. 2004 The System Has Failed

2006 Christ Illusion vs. 2007 United Abominations I really like both of these though.

2009 World Painted Blood vs. 2009 Endgame N/A I'm waiting to buy WPB next week.

Good god, I didn't realize just how hard this would be. SoH vs. RiP is such a hard decision as both albums are my favorite by their respective band. Megadeth almost sweeps Slayer but some of these victories were solely based on one or two songs (World Needs A Hero and System Has Failed both barely eek out wins).

Slayer win with Gods Hates Us All for me. The rest is Megadeth.

South of Heaven vs Rust In Peace was hard though.

Not even close to true. Trying different things and staying heavy = win all day long.

some of these are pretty tough, but i think its safe to say megadeth's last three albums > slayer's last three albums (even though UA was bad, CI was even worse)

I would pick Megadeth in every matchup, with the exceptions of RiB vs. SFSGSW and Seasons vs. Countdown, which I would consider to be ties/way too close a call for me to make without thinking extensively about it. I haven't heard World Painted Blood, but I don't intend to, so it's not fair to give Megadeth a free win for Endgame I guess.

However, Megadeth has no album that corresponds with the Haunting the Chapel EP, which kicks tremendous amounts of ass. Free point for Slayer there. That said, after all these years, Megadeth are probably still my favorite thrash band and Slayer are... not.

Slayer wins hands down for me with the first five matchups, and also "god hates us all". The rest, I can't say because I haven't heard the Megadeth analogs. To be honest, my opinion is somewhat biased because I've never actually liked Megadeth all that much, but I just had to give a shout out for the first five Slayer albums plus GHUA.

Nice idea for a thread, though.

SLAYER

Megadeth rule, but SLAYER are my second favorite band ever. Theyve been the most consistent.
