10 Songs, 36 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Having already proven themselves as the land’s fastest band, Slayer branched out on their Rick Rubin-produced fourth album. In fact, they make their tonnage even more brutal by slowing down at times, going so far as to pulverize a Judas Priest song (“Dissident Aggressor”) and introduce acoustic guitars (“Spill the Blood”). Yet there’s no lack of road-race speed—check out “Silent Scream.” The mind-melting solos on “Behind the Crooked Cross” and the jaw-dropping Dave Lombardo drum churn of “Mandatory Suicide” massacre everything in their path.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.
