5.0 out of 5 stars great! March 8 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is a note for the people who cant seem to enjoy this, look i also had kinda of a hard time gettin into slayer because i thought the same thing, that all the satan stuff was stupid, but just remember this whole thing about the themes is just something to write about, and its fun to write about this cos this music is noy supposed to have a message that supposed to change the world, so just sit back and enjoy the music, its fun! now to the album, great songs are antichrist black magic fight til death, great songs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Early Days of Thrash Metal June 25 2004
By randy
Format:Audio CD
Slayer's First Album (also note my rating is 4.5 stars not just 4)
Show No Mercy was never really my favorite Slayer Album; Reign In Blood and Seasons In The Abyss took that honor. A while back I put in Show No Mercy and couldin't believe that all these years I discarded this as an ok album. Im tempted to say it is my favorite from Slayer. It is a great Trash Album that helped start the whole thrash movement. Highlights Include; Antichrist, Die By The Sword and Black Magic

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Slayer Album May 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is Slayer at their Best. Its not so mainstream like Reign In Blood or Seasons. Plus Tom can still hit those high notes. This album is faster than any Metallica Album(Damn Sell Outs)Kirk Hammet only dreams he can match thier speed. And Lars isn't so great either. Slayer will always be the best in Music,Lyrics and Solos. Buy this album because you won't be let down.Satan Laughs As You Eternaly Rot S.L.A.Y.E.R

5.0 out of 5 stars This is The Dawn Of Slayer May 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
If it was'nt Slayer's best,I would'nt have given it 5 stars.Many people say that Reign in Blood is their best,but thats only because they don't bother hearing an album older than Hell Awaits.Its fast,its evil,there are some melodic moments and it has my favorite song from these guys,"Crionics".Thrashed Black Metal has never sounded so beautiful.Buy it.Buy it.As a matter of fact,stop reading and buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, Evil, Merciless Thrash Metal April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is Slayer's first album and it's a classic one indead. This is thrash metal the way is first began. What you'll find here is evil, satanic, heavy, brutal, intense, all-out, classic, memorable songs with killer riffs as well as evil lyrics. Every song has it's own identity but everything is to the direction of pure evil. Some of my favorite songs here are Evil Has No Boundaries, Die By The Sword, Fight 'Til Death, Metal Storm/Face The Slayer, Black Magic, Tormentor, The Final Command and Show No Mercy. Buy this album and prepare for a merciless beating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hasn't aged well Jan. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I know I'll dissonate to the majority of reviewers here.
Yes, this is one of the 1st documented thrash-metal founding records. Yes, when I first heard it back in 1989, I was immensely impressed. Yes this is the raw sound, unique in a way.
But as time flew by, now, 20 years since its release, initial impression has faded away, and in my eyes it's not as interesting as it seemed then. Main reasons for this fact are (1) All band members do not sound very proffessional here yet, and would dramatically improve their performance even the following year, (2) this was just a template for brutal satanic thrash, that would later be developed into full glory in more deserving records, and (3) most of the songs here have countless live versions which are by far better than here in the studio.
Thus, recognizing the importance of this album, I give it only 3 stars. The real Slayer started the next year, with "Haunting the Chapel" EP.
