No, get Show No Mercy. The new album, in fact everything after and including God Hates Us All, is pure, ****ty nu-metal.


Bull**** lol. It's hardly nu-metal

But yeah Show No Mercy is the best album.

Best band ever. Period. I love all Slayers music, except for Undisputed Attitude, but other than atht, Slayer don't make bad songs, it's either excellente' or it's fantastic. Nothing beats 'em.
#43
Slayer pwn. Seem em twice. last year and this year in singapore and australia.

Love their riffs and their songs kick arse for playing on guitar. though kerry's solos are boring and some riffs are repetive. (recycled notes and riffs on south of heaven)

but yeah. I love slayer \m/
#44
Slayer are awesome, but their leads are extremely annoying. Hitting random notes fast doesn't make good solos!

Slayer are awesome, the riffs are awesome, the solos are awesome, the singing is awesome, the whole sound is what's that word, awesome. The solos don't have to be technical masterpieces, they fit the bands sound, it works.
#46
Pure fucking metal,i love everything they've put out

You can't even count how many bands these guys influenced

Or maybe some people just don't like Slayer.

OH NO GOD FORBID SOMEONE DOESN'T LIKE SLAYER. THEY MUST BE TRENDY.





Quote by Rengori
Yes, because 20 years later Slayer is clearly releasing material on the same level as Reign in Blood or South of Heaven.


Because their new stuff is poor, that somehow affects the quality of their '80's output?

best slayer album?

Beating the elderly is a big favourite of mine. Also, pushing kids over and kicking pregnant women in the womb is fun.



Right now we're called 'Various Artists' just to fuck over people with iPods

I thought seasons was they're best. It was the perfect mix of Reign in Blood & South of Heaven.

Slayer are cool, sure they can get a bit reppetive some times but they get alot of nondeserved bashing.
#54
Repetetive maybe, but I suppose you could argue they are sticking to what they do best.

Yeah and it has worked for 20+ years so no wonder they aren't changing their sound.
#56
I think slayer is awesome.... But their newer stuff actually sucks... Kerry King kinda annoys the hell out of me... someone needs to take the floyd rose off of his guitar because that seems to be his musical crutch

I have Reign In Blood was I think it great and Christ Illusion which is ok, mainly bought it for Eyes Of The Insane. Thats about all I've heard, well I've seen the Bloodline? video on tv and on the radio.

Who said you're allowed to make an Only Thread? It could've been 'The Slayer Thread' but you had to go and say Only, didn't you?

Personally, I enjoy the older albums every now and then, especially when I'm drunk, but if I sit down and actually listen to it I find it quite boring. Just me.

I can't really see me listening to any of the newer stuff these days, but Reign in Blood and Hell Awaits will always have a place on my shelf.

Overrated to hell, but they were thrash pioneers, and massively succesful with what they did.

Slayer is awesome... I just don't like some of their newer stuff because of the lyrics, there is less attention to detail... But all of their older albums kick major ass

Maybe it's cuz it was the first Slayer I ever got, but my favorite is still Diabolous. That album is awesome... other than that, I think the best Slayer albums are the first two, Mercy, and Hell Awaits. Especially Hell. That album was raw and wriggling dude.

Man, I can't believe they messed up the first page... wow.

Legendary band IMO. I used to have a kerry king V. It was actually one of the best V's I've ever used. Surprising from B.C. Rich.

Slayer is awesome, I don't care what anyone says. You can't listen to Slayer for the solos. You listen to Slayer for the sheer brutality. I listen to Slayer cause its viscious. Its good to get all the anger out to for sure.

slayer has been a gateway to extreme metal for me which i am grateful for

Yes we also shot JFK and faked the moon landing here at the UG Metal Forum.

Slayer are one of the most overrated bands in metal history. Theres so many thrash bands that do it way better, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction, Tankard, Holy Moses. ****, even Testament are better than Slayer.

You like A7X more than Slipknot? That's just lame!!! lolz. j/k dude, whatever, your opinion, but still... the only halfway decent A7X was Waking The Fallen... at least everySlipknot record has four or five good ones...
