Editors’ Notes

Indisputably one of the most important, influential, and game-changing groups in the history of metal (if not rock music itself), Slayer has alternately delighted, devastated, and offended listeners since the early '80s. From the band's appropriately titled debut (Show No Mercy) through its breakthrough and crossover era (Reign in Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons in the Abyss) to the present, Slayer has been an absolutely unstoppable force of mayhem, with a gigantic, cult-like global following. World Painted Blood is its 10th studio album and finds the band doing what it does best: serving up lighting-fast guitar solos and thunderous double-bass drum action, topped with furious vocals about death, destruction, despair, and depravity. Don't miss "Snuff," "Hate Worldwide," "Public Display of Dismemberment," and the current events–addressing "Americon."

This album disapeared from iTunes for a while. Now it's back but all the ratings and reviews are gone. Either way, it's great. It's so awesome to see Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth continue to put out awesome music.

Very Underrated?

My favorite Slayer offering since Seasons. I was listening to this this morning as I drove to work wondering how to deal with a very difficult/stupid coworker. Sometimes angry fast metal is the answer.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Slayer were one of the most distinctive, influential, and extreme thrash metal bands of the 1980s. Their graphic lyrics dealt with everything from death and dismemberment to war and the horrors of hell. Their full-throttle velocity, wildly chaotic guitar solos, and powerful musical chops painted an effectively chilling sonic background for their obsessive chronicling of the dark side; this correspondence helped Slayer's music hold up arguably better than the remaining Big Three '80s thrash outfits...
