Music Review: Reign in Blood by Slayercategories: Music, Hard Rock & Metal, Thrash Music
Label: Sony Legacy
Best Thrash Album Bar NoneThe title says it all... I recall when it came out back in '86. I was a die-hard Metallica fan. They became #2 after this album, and dropped off my list completely with "Load" (a very appropriately named album).
NO ONE breaks it down like Slayer. The riffage and drumming have NO peers. For those who want more "virtuosity" in their guitar solos, all I have to say is this: Bollocks! If you want that, listen to Dragon Force. Slayer leads are not there to impress wannabe Yngwie Malmsteen fans... they're there to add more chaos and deconstruction to the sound. This album stands the test of time, and I still listen to it 22 years later.
