You know you're a guitar player when you would rather use the internet to look at pictures of guitars than spread eagled chicks.

For megadeth my personal favourties are rust in peace, Countdown to extinction, and youthanasia.

Slayer id say reign in bloo/south of heaven, get both rather than one or the other, as they are pretty different to each other.

Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

Slayer: Show No Mercy, Hell Awaits, Reign In Blood, South of Heaven, Seasons in The Abyss, Christ Illusion

Megadeth: Rust In Peace, Peace Sells..., Countdown to Extinction, The System Has Failed

Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss.

Slayer - Reign In Blood, Seasons in the abyss.
Megadeth - Rust In Peace

RiB got really old for me, but for a while there it was amazing.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.

Slayer - hell awaits or reign in blood .
Megadeth - RIP and 1992 - Countdown To Extinction.
And btw .shouldnt this thread be in the rec or the ONLY thrash thread ?
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

Megadeth - Rust in Peace. No question.
Slayer - IGNORE THE PEOPLE WHO SAY TO GET CHRIST ILLUSION. DON'T. Reign in Blood is a good introduction to them, that's the first album everyone gets, but South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss are better. Hell Awaits is very cool as well. Show No Mercy's great but I wouldn't recommend it as a first, considering it has a different sound than most Slayer, except if you are more of a classic heavy metal fan than a thrash fan.

I do agree.

I'd say buy either Regin in Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons first, then go on to Hell Waits and Show No Mercy.

Didn't read this whole thread, but I'm sure these two have already been said. Either way, Slayer-Reign In Blood
Megadeth-Rust In Piece

Fuck that for Megadeth

My own transistion was as follows:

Rust in Peace
Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
So Far, So Good... So What!
Countdown to Extinction

My favourite album has to be Peace Sells, followed by SFSGSW.. There are tracks on these albums that are simply thrash metal masterpieces - "Wake Up Dead, Peace Sells, Devil's Island, Mary Jane, In My Darkest Hour, Hook in Mouth"

I think the riffery in Rust in Peace is too complex for a noob to appreciate, the songs dont simply kick your ass like the previous two albums. Metalheads with the hardened arteries of substance abuse will really appreciate SFSGSW.

If you can, try to get your hands on a second hand copy of any of the albums Ive mentioned, so you dont get the remastered shit. I reckon Dave fucked up the production when he decided to remaster all the Megadeth albums.

As for Slayer, hands down: Reign in Blood. No ifs, buts, maybes.
After that get Seasons In the Abyss or Show No Mercy... I don't really dig South of Heaven - too slow :P, and Tom Araya's vocal styling on that album also shits me to tears.
As a result of listing <><'s reports I was banned.

Megadeth- Rust in Peace <--- you cant go wrong, one of the greatest thrash cds ever

Slayer- Reign in BLood <--- alot of slayer **** is for the most part the same thing, this is thier most popular album though and i guess would be a good starter
