3.0 out of 5 stars Who is this box set aimed at? Jan. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big slayer fan. I've seen them 6 times over the last three years, got all their albums, blah blah blah. I got the deluxe slayer set for xmas and while I like some of it, overall it's a huge ripoff.
1) Almost all of discs I and II are songs a slayer fan already has. I doubt that a non-fan would be buying a deluxe box set so discs I and II are a complete waste of time/space/money
2) Many of the "rarities" on this disc have been widely circulated in bootleg form. The diehard slayer fans who should be interested in this box set probably have them too.
3) Some of the rare live tracks sound really bad. There's some sort of weird miking or stereo panning on the toms so you can't listen to it on headphones without becoming very annoyed.
4) The live dvd is interesting but could have been better. At least show us a trip to the beer store like in Cliff Em All.
5) The bonus "blood pak" disc is a great live set with Lombardo. Sounds great, unfortunate that they decided to dedicate one disc to the concert so they had to edit some tracks out. Why not omit one of the greatest hits cds and spread the concert over two discs? Is this set supposed to be for the fans or what?
40 extra bucks for a cardboard box, a banner, a piece of plastic on a string, a cheeseball plastic disc case with BOTH red liquid AND glittering tinfoil skulls floating around in it. Oooooooh, scary. I might pay 5 or 10 bucks for this bonus stuff. Maybe another 5 bucks for the 70 page book. I guess that makes the live CD worth 25-30 bucks, which is a ripoff even if it is good.
In short this should have been a four disc set, no greatest hits, one disc of real rarities, one dvd with a beer store scene, and a two cd Lombardo concert in Anaheim.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the box set is here!!! Nov. 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
This box set was rumored for the past 2 or 3 years and finally it is here! 4 CDs, a DVD, a wall banner, a backstage pass, and a 60 page booklet all in an ammo box set!!! Here is the further breakdown...
First 2 CDs basically contain Slayer's best of. Nothing really new here expect for some b-sides and Japan-only tracks.
Third CD have a nice collection of rarities ranging from Jeff's home recordings to Tom's Garage practices to other cool live versions of some of their best songs.
Forth is a DVD featuring different performances throughout Slayer's 20 year career. Definitely a highlight of the set!
Also with this special deluxe edition we have a live concert from 2002 with Dave Lombardo behind the kit! About time some more live stuff released with Dave. This 5th CD comes in an infamous blood pack, which was a promo item back in 1991 when Seasons in the Abyss CD came out.
Along with that there is a nice 3 feet tall wall banner with the eagle logo on it. Also included is a backstage laminate and a 60 page extensive booklet spotlighting Slayer's career and including some old and never before seen pictures of the band in their early years!
Everything is packed in a limited ammo type box. Now this is a definite for any hardcore Slayer fan or for a new one as well who doesn't have all of Slayer studio albums. Buy the deluxe edition instead of the regular one too!

5.0 out of 5 stars What every Slayer fan needs July 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want a maximum dose of what Slayer is then buy this. From beginning to end this is what these guys have put out over 20 years. A little bit of it all and some you probaly didn't know. A good collection of the best and worst that Slayer has to offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slayer rocks! June 22 2004
By Berry
Format:Audio CD
I am a christian and a loyal one at that, but I couldn't help getting into these guys!! They're talent is overwhelming. Kerry and Jeff's double guitar attack is amazing and Tom's vocals are strong and almost demon like! Dave's drums are like machine guns and Paul was a nice fit to the group making them sound even more heavier. I kno all the die-hards like myself kno this, but I just can't get over how awesome they are. I mean i don't agree with some of their lyrics like the anti-christ and half of the other satanic songs, but music-wise, you can't get any better than this! Rock on Slayer! Can't wait for that new cd! This box set is amazing, the DVD and CD quality on disc 3 and 4 aren't the best, but that's what makes this box seem more vintage like! The first 2 discs are good for me since I only own this, RIB, SOH, and Live Undead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The humorous side to SLAYER... June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yeah right,just kidding. There is none.Nada.Null. They are and remain a VERY special taste, wether in small doses (I need my adrenaline fix,NOW!)...or in large heaping doses (god help you).
All the SLAYER you'll ever need is here, and you gotta love this stuff if you go to the expense of purchasing this.
Funny(?!) though, once you get into their groove SLAYER can actually sound "beautiful", of a sorts. The guitars and bass interplay with mathmatical precision,and the sheer brutality and conceived "evilness" are real enough. Not to mention the lyrics! Nothing in their artistic creations smacks of insincerity or hype, and this is their greatest strengh.
These guys created the metal of the blackest kind, true BLACK METAL, forget the Scandanavian scene with the greasepaint and "i'm the devil" costumes and posturing (it always came across to me as a bit fey). Sure, as heavy metal expanded its boundaries into various sub-genres (speed,thrash,death,symphonic,etc) classification became necessary to be inclusive to all the diverse "metal" sounds. However the classification of METAL is nothing but a marketing ploy, who cares?
It was/is SLAYER that refuses to compromise to the commercial promises of mainstream acceptability and that's why there are no substitutes. That's why they are great, and thats why they are the Devil's own. SOUNDS OF THE APOCALYPSE is exactly what it says it is.
