Slayer is a thrash metal band from US, formed in 1981. The band was founded by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King. The band was credited as one of the "Big Four" thrash metal bands, along with Metallica, Anthrax, and Megadeth.

Slayer's musical traits involve fast tremolo picking, guitar solos, double bass drumming, and shouting vocals. The band's lyrics and album art, which cover topics such as death, deviants, suicidal, genocide, necrophilia, insanity, Nazism, religion, Satanism, serial killers, and warfare have generated album bans, delays, lawsuits and strong criticism from religious groups and the general public. Slayer is best known for speaking through perspective without being necessarily sympathetic to the cause of their inspiration.

Since their debut record in 1983, the band has released two live albums, one cover album, one box set, three DVDs, one VHS, two EPs, and nine studio albums, four of which have received gold

SLAYER Show No Mercy

siLLy puPPy
SLAYER jumped into the mosh pit with their debut album SHOW NO MERCY. The year was 1983 and metal was wasting no time fragmenting into several strains of sub-genres. On this brutal behemoth of a debut you can hear the early 80s traditional metal sound that was fairly common for the day (with Maiden and Priest being obvious influences) taking an incremental step into the thrash world that wouldn't take full form for another few years. What we get hear is a chugging dual riffage assault from Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King that still utilizes old school metal method of songwriting but the brutality is turned up and the tuning turned down. There is emphasis on creating a more ugly and defiant atmosphere than the more party oriented glam metal that was taking metal by the horns and leading it into that direction.

Dave Lombardo kills it on the drums setting the pace that the other members have to keep up with and Tom Araya lowers the vocal range by introducing some proto-thrash styles but still retains a wailing operatic scream here and there. The album cover depicts a minotaur which SLAYER helped usher in the darker imagery of the ever expanding underground of extreme metal. Although glam acts like Motley Crue and the sub-genre defying act of Celtic Frost were flashing Satanic imagery and included it in their lyrical content, it was SLAYER who really brought the brutality to the beast and because of this album's relative popularity really catapulted extreme metal into the thrash and death worlds. Although I have always viewed SLAYER as in a sprinting race with Metallica, the former eschewed the technical classical challenges that the latter displayed and instead focused on the most intense possibilities for the day in regards to both the brutality of the sound and of the shocking imagery of lyrics. I find this first outing quite a pleasing listen and although not their absolute best, a very worthy place to begin. I have to admit that I love this album from beginning to end.

Rage, violence, satanism, gore... thrash. This is not my favorite thrash album. In fact, it's only my fifth favorite. But it's still one of the greatest. For me, the two best songs are the first, Angel Of Death and his famous scream, and the last : Raining Blood and his great riff. Reign In Blood is one of the first metal albums that I listen and the first thrash album. It's cult and awesome. This is just rage and violence in 30 intense and violent minutes. There's no time to breath, no time to sleep, you just listen to it from the beginning to the ending.

"Implode" is a one-track digital single by US thrash metal act Slayer. The single can be downloaded for free on the band´s official homepage. It was released in April 2014. "Implode" is the first new original studio material recorded by Slayer since the recording sessions for "World Painted Blood (2009)". The long recording break was however due to lot of different issues, including the long disease course and untimely death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the dismissal of drummer Dave Lombardo. The latter has been replaced by a returning Paul Bostaph. While Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has toured with Slayer as a replacement for Jeff Hanneman, he is not part of the recording lineup on this single, which was recorded as a three-piece with Kerry King handling all guitars.

Stylistically there are very few surprises when listening to "Implode". This is classic post "Seasons in the Abyss (1990)"-era Slayer. Harsh, aggressive, and a band that´s as tight playing as ever. The return of Paul Bostaph provides the music with a less organic sound than the drumming that Dave Lombardo brought to the table did, but he is a skilled player and his drumming style arguably suits the music well. "Implode" is a relatively varied track with both heavy grooves and more standard fast paced thrashy sections. It´s a good quality track, but to my ears pretty standard for Slayer and definitely not anything out of the ordinary.

The sound production is also pretty standard for Slayer, even though the return of Paul Bostaph also has impact on how the drums are produced.

Upon conclusion "Implode" is a good quality track by Slayer, but it´s not a track that stands out in their discography and it doesn´t exactly make my blood boil or raise my expectations to how a new full-length release will sound. It´s simply what I expected and nothing more. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

SLAYER Hell Awaits

"Hell Awaits" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US thrash metal act Slayer. The album was released through Metal Blade Records in September 1985. Already with their debut album "Show No Mercy (1983)", Slayer had established themselves as one of the leading US thrash metal acts in those formative years of the genre, and with "Hell Awaits" they further strengthened that position.

While "Show No Mercy (1983)" featured more than a few nods toward NWoBHM, "Hell Awaits" takes Slayer´s music completely into raw and aggressive thrash metal darkness, with fast drumming, fast thrashy riffing and screaming atonal soloing and Tom Araya´s distinct aggressive vocals in front. The blasphemous lyrical themes that were introduced on the debut are further explored here in especially the title track, but also a lyrical theme like necrophilia is explored in a track like "Necrophiliac". Tracks like the two mentioned and "Kill Again" are the highlights on the album, and while the remaining four tracks are great material too, they don´t stick as well as the first three mentioned do. A couple of the tracks are also slightly too long. It´s like the entertainment value decreases and my attention wanders after the four minute mark in tracks like "Praise of Death", "At Dawn They Sleep" and "Crypts of Eternity".

The musicianship are as always solid, when talking about Slayer, so it´s the fact, that the songwriting´s still slightly imature and the sound production isn´t that powerful or well sounding either, that bring my rating down to a 3.5 star (70%) rating. That´s actually a very high rating considering the amount of negative criticism I just gave "Hell Awaits", but the rating is a testament to how great Slayer are, even when they release something a bit sub par to their best output.

Out of the big 4, SLAYER was always the one I liked the least. Not because of their intensity or taking aggression to the next level. Far from it. The weakness I have always found in them is in the songwriting department. But not on this release. This is the release where aggression and innovation cross paths producing one of the all time classics.

I gave this album a break for a few years and just got the remastered version and have been blown away like it never did upon first listen. Rick Rubin produced this album and surely made it even better than it would have been otherwise.

Although I didn't like this as much in the beginning because it doesn't sound like Metallica, Megadeth or Anthrax, i let go of all that! It's a masterpiece on its own terms! For this shining moment in their discography, SLAYER hit a home run. This didn't do it for me upon first encounter but after listening to it now – WOW!
