5/5 ·
Warthur
The shining masterpiece of Slayer's discography, Reign In Blood is also the fastest and most brutal album ever released by the band, or indeed by any of the Big Four of thrash metal, and it has a good claim to being one of the most extreme thrash metal albums ever released. Slayer's faster style from Hell Awaits is brought to perfection on this disc, with excellent production by Rick Rubin which brings out all the different aspects of what's going on - in particular, the release features the clearest and meatiest drum sound of any of Slayer's first three albums - and the shift in the lyrical focus from Satan and demons to more wide-ranging musings on violent subject matter if anything makes the band sound even more sick and sinister than previously. A true classic.
