  • So I just picked up Slayer's Reign in Blood...

    Its just flat out terrible. The "vocals" suck, as do the lyrics. So okay guitar parts I guess. The drummer seems pretty good, but I don't think I can listen to it again.
    I like metal but not this. Is there something wrong with me?

      It is considered one of the best metal albums of all time.
      Doesnt mean you have to like it.
      Dont feel weirded out cause you dont like it.
      Just give it to somebody who likes it.

          hahahaha... you have to realize when it was released and the impact it had for it's time.

          And if you're not a Slayer fan, then I guess you won't like any of their music, right?

          So YES, there is something wrong with you...

            That album rules, man.

            The thing I like about Slayer is that I can laugh to the lyrics while really enjoying the music. Are lyrics like that meant to be taken seriously in the first place? I don't think so. It's creative writing, so take it for what it is. Slayer is one of my favs.

              To me its just dumb. Some guy who can't sing yelling some **************** about satan here and there just trying to be scary for the sake of being scary. Nuclear fast riffing and soloing without much musicality. I have read its a thrash masterpiece but the worst song off Master of Puppets is 100 times better than their best all IMO of course

              Give some reasons why its so damn great.

                  What do you think, that you can change the whole metal scenes opinion on that classic album just cause you dont like it?

                    To me, Slayer is all about the riffs, not the leads. I think Slayer is horrible at leads. They just sound like a bunch of random notes played for the sake of sounding demonic. I'll pass.

                    Their riffs are crushing as hell.

                      The way that I want you to die
                      Slow death, immense decay
                      Showers that cleanse you of your life
                      Forced in
                      Like cattle
                      You run
                      Stripped of
                      Your life's worth
                      Human mice, for the Angel of Death
                      Four hundred thousand more to die

                      Angel of Death
                      Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
                      Sadistic, surgeon of demise
                      Sadist of the noblest blood

                      Destroying, Without mercy
                      To benefit the Aryan race

                      Surgery, with no anesthesia
                      Feel the knife pierce you intensely
                      Inferior, No use to mankind
                      Strapped down screaming out to die

                      Angel of Death
                      Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
                      Infamous butcher
                      Angel of Death

                      Pumped with fluid, inside your brain
                      Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes
                      Burning flesh, Drips away
                      Test of heat burns your skin, Your mind starts to boil
                      Frigid cold, Cracks your limbs
                      How long can you last
                      In this frozen water burial?
                      Sewn together, Joining heads
                      Just a matter of time
                      'Til you rip yourselves apart
                      Millions laid out in their
                      Crowded tombs
                      Sickening ways to achieve
                      The holocaust
                      Seas of blood, Bury life
                      Smell your death as it burns
                      Deep inside of you
                      Abacinate, eyes that bleed
                      Praying for the end of
                      Your wide awake nightmare
                      Wings of pain, Reach out for you
                      His face of death staring down,
                      Your blood running cold
                      Injecting cells, Dying eyes
                      Feeding on the screams of
                      The mutants he's creating
                      Pathetic harmless victims
                      Left to die

                      Rancid Angel of Death
                      Flying free

                      Angel of Death
                      Monarch to the kingdom of the dead

                          Calm down just a bit. I guess I think I should like it from internet peer pressure but I don't get it at all. I guess I'm looking for someone to make some valid points on what is good about it.

                            This thread is making me angry... just go back to listening to Master of Puppets if you don't like Slayer... anyone who likes metal agrees that RIB is one of the all-time masterpieces of thrash... and you don't get it. So move along. If you don't get it by listening to it what am I supposed to say to change your mind?

                              Its music. Its subjective. No one can talk you into liking it.
                              You already said you didnt like it, so whats the point?
