Let's see what everyone's favorite Slayer record is.

I would have to go with Seasons In The Abyss, but South Of Heaven comes in at a close second.
#2
Hell Awaits.

Show No Mercy an extremely close second.

I feel the need to remind everyone that Hell Awaits is a flawless masterpiece.
#3
No contest. Hell Awaits is the best Slayer album.

Personal favorite is South of Heaven.
HESSIAN HAREM
FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE HESSIAN CULTURE. STAY TRUE.

Show No Mercy

Dumb thread. Paralys it.

A heathen, conceivably
but not,

I hope,
I’m not ashamed to be white
Vi doede ikke... vi har aldri levd
Barbarism is the natural state of mankind
Civilization is unnatural

It is a whim of circumstance
an unenlightened one

I didn't even know they made music after Hell Awaits.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Ayo fuck you, South of Heaven's a cool album.

Hard to pick a definitive favorite but the most listened in recent years are WPB and SNM. Out of them I would have to pick WPB because nostalgia is shit.

Hell Awaits, though I haven't checked out Show No Mercy or Haunting The Chapel yet. I find Reign In Blood really underwhelming; songs finish abruptly before they have the opportunity to develop properly. A shame, because the songwriting and riffwork on Hell Awaits is top notch

South of Heaven
I'll tell you I'm really liking Repentless I've been listening to that album over and over again!

These days I can't even say that Slayer has a "best album." Every one of their records has 2-3 really standout tracks, 2-3 decent tracks & a bunch of filler. For me, Slayer hasn't been one of those bands where you hear things you'd never heard before when you go back & listen after spending time away from them. You could make a pretty awesome 3 disc set of all their most badass tunes from their whole career.

I^ I agree that picking one is difficult as they are a bit inconsistent - some truly great tracks and some dull ones side by side.
Still I'd pick Hell Awaits but South of Heaven & Seasons are both close....

last time I saw them they played all of Reign In Blood in order

which was handy as you knew when to go for a cigarette

that time was after the supports until the taxi arrived
