This has to be regarded as one of the best metal albums of the 90s and Slayer produces their third metallic masterpiece here. No one can measure up to Slayer and while Metallica found commercial success, Slayer didn't need to compromise to achieve success. Seasons in the Abyss is an appropriate follow-up to the best metal album of all-time. Seasons in the Abyss is an amazing collection. SLAYER ARE THE MASTERS OF METAL and after 17 years, this album still sounds great.

SPOILER ALERT!************************************************************************************************************
*******spoiler*******: I found out that Slayer are playing this whole album when I see them later this month. That's why I bought it. *******spoiler end/*******
****************************************************************************************************************************

I listened to it for the first time last night, sitting down with the lyrics and following along. As a work of art, it's a brilliant metal masterpiece. (I've learned not to expect any less from this band.) I love the way the songs segue into each other on each side.

Maybe one would laugh to read this, but I was honestly disturbed by the subject matter and execution. I mean, anybody can write about this dark stuff, but Slayer really made it believable and real. Some movies about war make me cry, some don't, you know what I mean? Slayer were writing about really horrible things, the darker aspects of reality and humanity, and you can tell, for this record at least, they really cared about the listener BELIEVING this dark stuff, 'cause it's true! We humans are capable of horrible, despicable things. This album stirred my soul and shook my being.

SPOILER ALERT!************************************************************************************************************
*******spoiler end*******: My plan WAS to listen to this a lot until the show since I know they're gonna play the whole thing anyways, and learn to nod my head to the complex bits and maybe sing along with a song or three. Now I'm not sure if I'm ever going to listen to this until I hear it live at the show, or even after. I just hope I'm spiritually ready to take it in live.

The first Slayer album I ever heard was "South of Heaven," and I was hooked. I could not stop listening to it. I had never heard that much anger mixed with passion and talent before. My parents also hated the title... that's probably why I bought it in the first place.
I love "Reign In Blood." It is, by far, the best example of true thrash metal ever... 10 songs in 29 minutes... and still beats the hell out of ANYTHING coming out now.
That said... THIS is my favorite Slayer album ever. Why? It combines the speed of "Reign In Blood" with the mid-tempo ultra heavy grooves of "South of Heaven." It's also the most musical of all the Slayer albums, if that means anything.
From the opening speed riffing of "War Ensemble" to the churning of the title track, this is the total package for Slayer. Lombardo proves himself as the fastest drummer around. King and Hannaman never sounded better, and Tom's voice really shines... not quite sure if that's a compliment, though.
FYI... it was Metal Hammer's album of the year, 1990.
BUY IT!!

Awesome solos, overall outstanding song quality and some of the best riffs Slayer has to showcase. Yes it is better than Reign In Blood and it's more technical than most of Slayer's releases. Perhaps Slayer's best, it still has some stiff competition in Haunting the Chapel and Hell Awaits. Every song is awesome and the solos here are probably the best Slayer have ever done. This cd couldve been done today, the production is MUCH better then Reign In Blood, you can actually hear the bass drums properly and it still keeps a raw charm. Dave Lombardo was never my favourite drummer, I happen to believe Paul Bostaph is much better but he deliver a solid performance here, I love the fills, but everything else isn't stand out stuff in terms of rhythm.
Guitar riffs are awesome, Jeff and Kerry really are some of the best guitarists metal has ever seen, and, as I said before, the solos are damn fantastic. Their songwriting is really something to look up to.
Bass is nice and thick, but Tom's real performance is his vocals on this cd. His voice is at its peak at the recording time for this album, although he doesn't do any more of his loud, long, high-pitched, falsetto screams like at the start of Angel of Death.
Overall, if you're new to Slayer, start anywhere, 'cause they're ALL good. I didn't give this album an easy 5 stars, it's earnt it. Buy it if you haven't got it, no regrets from here!

I went to the Clash of the Titans tour to see my favorite bands, Megadeth and Anthrax. Hell I even bought Facelift because i happened to catch the video for "We Die Young". I knew absolutely nothing about Slayer before that night. They came on second, after AIC. Despite the fact that I had never heard them (had heard of them), and was there to see my favorite bands, I left Pine Knob with a new favorite band. From the opening seconds to the finale of Angel Of Death, I was rivetted.
The following day I scrounged up all of my available money, scammed a ride to the record store, and bought Seasons. I took it home, locked my door, played it beyond my stereo's threshhold, and emerged with a new definition of what metal can and should be.
Seasons is by far my favorite Slayer album. Reign and South come close, but the sentimental attachment of Seasons is unshakable. This is the tape I would listen to in the locker room before we hit the field to play football in high school. It just got my blood boiling, I had to go out and kill everyone not wearing green. (BTW, in my two varsity years, we went 25-1. only loss was in the finals my junior year , we got our revenge the next year.)
War Ensemble just set things off with such ferocity, my adrenaline is starting to pump just thinking about it.
Dead Skin Mask is one of the best metal tunes EVER!
Hallowed Point is top five, and the title track is up there with anything Sabbath has ever written (no disrespect to Mr Iommi).
Reign In Blood is the album that seems trendy to call their best. Maybe it's my constant need to go against popular opinion, but Seasons is the album I think of when I hear someone mention Slayer.
(btw, the show in Grand Rapids on Halloween was fantastic)
