5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece April 18 2012
By Habrawk
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Slayer's South of Heaven is a classic masterpiece and a must have for one's metal library at any age. Every track is solid no filler here... well maybe the solos ... but everyone cuts a little slack on slayer solos because we all know the riffs are of substance.

While Reign In Blood was faster than a speeding bullet,this album has better riffs and lyrics.Its also ground shakingly heavy.If you think Metallica's Master Of Puppets or Megadeth's Peace Sells But Who's Buying were scary then this album will be a living nightmare for you.No joke.Its just a big mean scary rock record and is metal in its purest form.While it lacks the irresistible melody of Metallica or Anthrax and isnt as timeless as Appetite For Destruction (which really isnt a metal record but its my favorite record of the 80s so I had to bring it up) it makes up for with pure aggresion.Its possibly the quintessential metal album of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare I say the best Slayer album? April 28 2006
By Cyprus
Format:Audio CD
I know "Riegn In Blood" is considered one of the best all time metal albums, let alone Slayer albums, but this is my personal favorite. Where RiB completely assaulted the senses with a flurry of speed and aggression, this album shows how you can slow things down, make them more melotic, and still be absolutely brutal. I find the musicianship and songwriting is much more intricate and evolved that other Slayer works. This album, along with Seasons, you can really tell the band put a lot of effor into and weren't just trying to see how fast they could play. GREAT ALBUM EVEN IF YOU AREN'T THE TYPICAL THRASH/SPEED METAL FAN.

5.0 out of 5 stars And what an album it was! Aug. 9 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was introduced to slayer one rainy mrning when i had way to much time on my hands. I had been listening to classic(sabbath) and power metal (dio) and was ready to check something new out. I am a huge fan of metallica but they really lost there fizzle around the black album so i decided to find some good thrash. On to this album! South of heaven is absolutely one of my favorite albums. My first words were " its like metallica never made anything after ride the lightning TIMEs 10!!!!!" Crunching riffs brutal speed (not as fast as reign in blood) This album demands to be listened to LOUD. Iwas on the bus and everyone could here and they looked ( probably because of lyrics like " SILENT SCREAM! CRUCIFY (...)SON!!!!) Highlights are: Siulent scream, Ghost of war, South of heaven, live undead and behind the crooked cross. Reign in blood and this are slayers best albums somethings come close (seasons in the abyss and God hates us all!) but none cut it like these did......DEAT TO FALSE METAL!!!!!!!1

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dark Horse Favorite July 15 2004
By roamer
Format:Audio CD
Put 10 Slayer fans in a room and ask them what they think the best Slayer album is and 9 of them will say Reign in Blood.
I am number 10. In my opinion South of Heaven is the best Slayer album to date. From the opening riff of the title track through the last scream on Spill the Blood, South of Heaven delivers.
Unlike it's predecessor, South of Heaven does not lend itself to breakneck speed from start to finish. The songs take a more methodical approach to their brutality. I find the lyrics to be their best. Silent Scream is the masterpiece of this record with one of the finest double bass drum pieces I have ever heard.
Even though many Slayer fans consider this to have been a letdown after Reign in Blood, you will not be disappointed if you lay your money down for South of Heaven.

Reign in Blood is slayer's best 'fast' album. Slayers best 'slow' album is South of Heaven. If you're thinking about getting into slayer buy either of these masterpieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrash done right May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Of the 3 big Slayer albums, this is my favorite. No question about it. More consistent then either RiB or Seasons, and just more interesting. Those 2 are definitely worth owning, but this is probably the best one to pick up first, imo.
This album is a good example of why it's so stupid that people associate thrash with being very fast. Sure, most thrash is fast, but thats hardly it's defining trait.(and most metal is fast anyway) And, no, this album really isn't as slow as it's made out to be, but it definitely leans toward the middle tempos most of the time. But it's still about as thrash as it gets, with the choppy, incessant rhythm guitars, straight-forward, pounding drums, semi-harsh vocals and almost completely inaudible bass. Araya gives a real nice performance here.(on vox anyway) He was a bit over dramatic on RiB, but he holds back a bit here, giving it more menace and none of the occasional silliness of that album. He's more subtle and varied than lots of people give him credit for, with an excellent use of a droning monotone to contrast with his more vicious shout-singing and piercing screams. This is where Lombardo really proved how great he is. In the interceding 17 years metal drummers have gotten pretty insane, largely due to the example Lombardo set, but he still holds up, and is one of the funnest drummers to listen to. He seems to understand that the key to interesting thrash drumming are good fills, and he does nothing but good ones here. I've never been that big of a fan of King/Hanneman's leads, but they've grown on me a bit, and are definitely better here than on RiB. That, and this album is more evocative and moody, so the anti-melodic, screaming leads fit in better. Still, all thrash comes down to the rhythm guitar, and they've always done that great.
