Product Description

Amazon.ca

No one has bettered the ferocity, pace, and brutal power of this 28-minute 10-song set. Guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King fire out of the gate with the infamous "Angel of Death" and don't take a respite until the fifth cut, "Jesus Saves." And that breather lasts all of 30 seconds. Winding like a mutant Paganini piece, "Postmortem"'s hook is so inescapable that even metal neophytes will find it irresistible. Superbly sequenced and wonderfully executed, this favorite of producer Rick Rubin stands as the most extreme album in thrash-metal history. --Steffan Chirazi

5.0 out of 5 stars How do you describe perfect July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Slayer's Reign in Blood is like a handful of other albums I treasure. Nevermind, Vulgar Display of Power, Number of the Beast, Forbidden Evil, 40oz to Freedom, Zeppelin II, Angel Dust, and probably a dozen others. My feeling is that there are a few select albums that really stand out as being done perfectly, Reign in Blood is #1 in that list. At no point in Reign in Blood can a listener logically say hey it would have been better done if they had done this note like this, Reign in Blood is PERFECT. Angel of Death, take it as you might as a venomous song about german warfare, encompasses the most ingenious guitar and drumwork known to heavy metal. Its not about metal, its about perfection. Slayers Reign in Blood is perfect, as are all the albums aformentioned. South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss come awefully close to achieving that same perfection. Reign in Blood certainly sparks an entire generation of metal in 1986 and as equally sparks 5 million jerkos that shouldnt have picked up a guitar in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute essential July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Reign in Blood is without question one of the best and most important metal albums ever released. This album marks the first Slayer album with Rick Rubin at the helm, and his expertise shows. With Rubin's guidance, Slayer was able to make the fastest and most extreme album ever produced. From the unbelievable riffs of the opening track, the infamous Angel of Death, to the progressive assault of Raining Blood, this album is an absolute assault. The talent of Slayer cannot be denied. Lombardo plays the kit with inhuman precision, while King and Hanneman's dual guitar solos speed along with ruthless aggression. Araya is also in fine form, with some of the most convincing vocals I've ever heard. Here's a rundown of the twelve tracks:
1. Angel of Death: An unbelievable way to start the album. Speeds along at over 200 bpm. The dual solo at the end is absolutely jaw-dropping. 10/10
2. Piece by Piece: The important second track doesn't disappoint. While there aren't any solo's, it's a very good track. 8/10
3. Necrophobic: Un ultra-fast song clocking in at under two minutes. One of my favorites, it's a shame Slayer doesn't play this live often. 10/10
4. Altar of Sacrifice: Another amazing track. Very disturbing lyrics. Tom is very convincing as he yells out "Enter to the realm of Satan!" halfway through. (For the record, none of Slayer are Satanists) 10/10
5. Jesus Saves: Marking a change of pace as Slayer slows down for the intro to this song. I love the build-up to the normal ultra-fast pace of the CD. 10/10
6. Criminally Insane: Another slow-starter, Criminally Insane never really manages to reach the pace of the rest of the album. It is not a bad song however. 8/10
7. Reborn: While the guitar work is simple, the vocals are extremely catchy and well-done.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only way to exit, is going piece by piece. July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1986 this was as extreme as music got. While the lyrics could still be interpreted as 'scary' or 'satanic' by the average grandmother, thanks to people like Cannibal Corpse and Necro you probably wont be very shocked hearing this album in 2004 rather than 1986. Produced by Rick Rubin, who was certainly taking some risks, seeing as his other production included the Beastie Boy and Public Enemy, who aren't very much like Slayer or the music they make. All it took was 28 minutes to cement this album to a permenent posistion on the Greatest Thrash Albums list.
Starting the album is Angel of Death, considered by many to be the greatest song Slayer has written. Upon first hearing it, I was a bit baffled by the lyrics. Lyrics about Nazi concentration camps and 'destroying without mercy to benefit the Aryan race' seemed a little weird coming from Tom Araya, who is clearly from a non-Aryan background. However, I discovered later that all most all the lyrics and music on this album were written solely by Kerry King, with Dave Lombardo and Tom contributing no writing to the album.
The next eight songs are typical Slayer. Blazing guitar solos, Tom's often un-understandible lyrics and autopilot bass, awesome drum playing from Lombardo, and usually over in less than three minutes. The album closer, Raining Blood, is more or less the same 'ol Slayer, but creates a different mood, with the song begining and ending with the sounds of thunder and rain.
Remembering all the stories you heard about Slayer being satanists and racist and pushing teenagers to suicide may falsly prepare you for something you wont hear in this record.
Its still loud, it's fast, it's brutal, but unlike in 1986, it's no longer shocking in 2004.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album. Slayer's best. July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album kicks a+++es. To all those bashing this album and specially to the one that said he or anyone can pick up instruments and do something better. Get anyone in the streets and give him a drum kit. Let's see if he can do what Lombardo did here. Get anyone in the street and give him a guitar. Let's see if he can play faster and better than Hanneman or King. Get anyone in the streets and tell him to sing while he plays the bass in the way Araya does. Now, to the album.
This album is tied with Master of Puppets as the best Trash Metal album. Master of Puppets has more elaborated solos and much more variety in the music. The music is more "intriguing". However, this one has the power, the speed. 1986 was 18 years ago. The world of music wasn't used to this speed. This was very ahead of its time. Nobody was used to this. Now there is more brutal stuff. That's true. The Death Metal bands like Cryptopsy or Nile make this sound easy. But remember that this is from 1986 and in those days, this was strong.
The intention of this guys wasn't sound like Metallica. They didn't want to create a complex thing. They wanted to make an entertaining, good, fast, heavy s+++t. That's what they did!!. Vocals? They may not be the best but you know what, I (And I'm sure that most of you think like I do) don't give a crap. This is not American Idol. I know that the 1 star reviewers come here saying they are great thinkers in music theory and they criticize this saying they don't get scared by Slayer while they listen to their beloved Clay Aiken when nobody sees them. I like the way Araya sings and speaks. Is appropriate for this music. The "rappers" can talk a little bit fast and it seems they can't do it without moving one or both arms like chimpanzees.

Reign in Blood is slayer's best 'fast' album. Slayers best 'slow' album is South of Heaven. If you're thinking about getting into slayer buy either of these masterpieces.
