Songs Of My Life #19
Slayer's "Reign in Blood" album still stands as a monument to the magnificence of thrash metal music. 30 minutes of full on, non stop ridiculously fast metal thrashing that changed the face of music.
On an album full of brilliant music, this song reigns supreme for me. Probably my favourite Slayer song, it is driven by the genius of Dave Lombardo on the drums and the brilliant guitaring of both Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King, while Tommy Araya tries keeping up on vocals.
This version was recorded in 2003, when the band performed the "Reign in Blood" album in its entirety, of which this is the concluding song. Awesome \m/
