3rd studio album from Slayer hailed as one of the most influential Thrash Metal albums of all time. With certified classic metal riffage opening up the album on "Angel Of Death" there is no denying the importance of Slayer in the genre. Produced by Rick Rubin with the band in LA, the album saw the band leave their home of Metal Blade Records and found them on Rubin's Def Jam with major potential to push them to the big leagues. With it's lyrically graphic content and Brutal (for the time) playing the album managed to make way via Billboard with no major radio support at all and became one of the most important metal albums ever recorded. Faithfully reproduced with full color sleeve and a "blind assortment" of randomly thrown in Blood Red vinyl this is a must have for fans of heavy music. Recommended.
