5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius!!, 31 Mar. 2010
This review is from: South Of Heaven (Audio CD)
I remember the 'hoo-haa' this album created among the die-hard death/thrash metallers when it was released in '88. It certainly represented a change of tack for Slayer's earlier brutal, break-neck-speed sound (most notably Tom Araya's more 'tuneful' vocals) and loads of my school mates considered it to be a huge let down. But, to me, this is equally as good as Regin In Blood. As previous reviewers have mentioned, there is a quite amazing 'evil' sound to these songs and the drumming from Lombardo is just magnificent! I don't think there are any weak songs on SOH, whereas on RIB "Necrophobic" and "Epidemic" are no more than album-fillers in my opinion. The title track followed by "Silent Scream" is top drawer, my favourite has got to be "Live Undead", there is an undescribeable atmosphere on this song and the last minute or so is full of energetic solos and wonderful drumming. Got to be a must-have for ANY record collection, not just a metaller's record collection!!!
