I disagree with that entirely. I know lots of people who love everything they've done.

In terms of overall consistency, Slayer wins hands down.

While they've released more thrash albums than Megadeth (who, IMO haven't released one since RiP) they haven't all been thrash. Diabolus was too groove / nu metal to be called thrash and GHUA had a few thrashers but a lot of those nu metal elements.

Metal is proof that Satan loves us and wants us to be happy.

"god hates us all" would like to have a word with you.


A more accurate - certainly less polarizing - way to get the same point across would simply be to say that they've released some crappy stuff in the last decade and a half - that statement I would have had a lot less problem agreeing with.

Peace Sells is a best ever metal release, but otherwise I'd rate Slayer's overall output higher, up through Seasons in the Abyss. After that I haven't cared about a single thing either band has done.

Shit, out of the individual matchups, I can probably only in good conscience give Slayer Christ Illusion over United Abominations, but I don't really like either. Megadeth all the way.

But let it be noted that there are six Metallica releases that would trump their matchup with either band if they were included in this poll.

Holy shit, I can't believe this insipid thread is still going.

After 1991 both bands fell off a cliff. Mustaine, being jealous that Metallica had a #1 album, tried anything in his power to accomplish the same, and never recovered since then. Slayer, after realizing they are out of riffs (both slow and fast), so they decided to copy whatever trend was popular in metal, and have never recovered since then.

/thread.

Well, I know what I said was a little bit TOO generalizing to be truthful.

I do think GHUA sucked overall. There have been a few great slayer songs from the past 15 years, but I could compile all of them into one good album's worth of songs.

Actually, Id have it as a four disc album with an EP that came with it. Bizarrely enough God Hates Us All is probably my favorite Slayer album. Its what got me into them, and its still one of the angriest albums I've ever heard. Diabolus is the only dodgey album they've released tbh, even then I do still like it
