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.

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!

After waiting forever for this to come in the mail, I must say that this was totally worth the wait. I haven't watched/listened to/read everything included yet but I've skimmed through everything and this is plain awesome. Disk One is pretty much a greatest hits compilation which is cool and well selected, especially for the moderate Slayer fan who likes the band but doesn't own their full discography. Disc Two has some fan favorite Slayer tracks along with the many songs Slayer has done for soundtracks and compilations, some that aren't on their official releases. The idea of that is much similar to Megadeth's "Hidden Treasures" album, great idea I must say. Disc Three along with Disk Four are deffinatley the most treasured pieces of this set. Disk Three has stuff never heard before such as some amazing demo versions done by Jeff Hanneman of several songs along with rehearsals and live performances. Disk Four is a DVD compilation of several live shows that span over a decade. As for Disk Five, the "blood pack" CD, this comes with the deluxe edition only and it's well worth it; Slayer live once again with Dave Lombardo. All in all, every disk is packed to the extreme with the most brutal stuff you'll find. As for the extras, there's an awesome Slayer banner to hang on your wall, a backstage pass, and an indepth magazine-style book on the bands history. Though, I love all of this stuff, the box set does have SOME flaws as others have pointed out. First of all, the box could have been a little cooler; I along with many others was expecting a real ammo box. For an $100 set they deffinatly could have had that rather than a cardboard box that only looks like an ammo box.Read more ›

Let me preface this review by noting that all of the people I've seen who criticize the people who have rightfully pointed out the shortcomings of this set have been by and far illiterate come-latelys. I've been into Slayer since "Show No Mercy" was released--don't tell me I have no right to critique a $90 box set just because mommy and daddy bought you "Divine Intervention" and you think Slayer are above judgment. But I'm about to put this overpriced aberration on the Altar of Sacrifice.
I don't really care about the packaging too much. A metal box would have been nicer than a cardboard one, sure, but I bought the set for the music, not the packaging. But take a look at the discs themselves. All except the DVD are black. Now, as far as I know, a laser beam can't go through totally opaque plastic...Folks, we're being peddled professionally-made CD-Rs. Let's look at the discs Piece By Piece.
Discs 1 and 2 are best-of discs, with disc 2 including some more recent rarities and B-sides. They've chosen to totally neglect all studio versions from the band's Metal Blade years, so I'm already predisposed against them. You can't tell me "Die By The Sword" doesn't belong among this band's best-ofs.
Disc 3 consists of "rarities." Now, to be fair, I realize many of you haven't heard much of this stuff. Out of all the 80s era material on the disc, I had everything as a dub or bootleg except for TWO songs. It's nice to hear live versions of some of their early tunes, but they're available out there through trading! How about some real rarities, like the cover of the Gumby theme song?
