5.0 out of 5 stars SLAYER at their absolute best! June 2 2004
By Kevin
Format:Audio CD
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.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars My introduction to Slayer Nov. 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Slayer's best Sept. 1 2003
By Chad
Format:Audio CD
This is the third Slayer album i bought and it is now one of my favorite of all time. Its classic thrash metal, but not up to scale with Reign In Blood. It is very good, but not as brutal as Reign in Blood. The songs on Seasons are longer than on the previous two albums. And this albums is still fast ... thrash metal from beginning to end. The brutal opener War Ensemble already lets you know how good this album is. Other standouts are Expendable Youth, Hallowed Point,and the title track. Tom Araya has covered controversial subjects before on other albums like "Angel of Death" which documented atrocities performed at Auschwitz by Nazi SS Surgeon Josef Mengele, which you can find on Reign In Blood. Another one is "Silent Scream" which is about the horrors of abortion, which is on South of Heaven. But Seasons also has its own song the chilling "Dead Skin Mask" which is about serial killer Ed Gein. Over all, Seasons in the Abyss is always going to be my second favorite Slayer album. If you dont own this one already, you have to buy it. Trust me on this one.
