The Top Ten

One of Slayer's signature songs written about the infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele who, in return for his twisted experiments that often ended up with his victims dying, was given that nickname - The Angel of Death. Heavy song with an interesting lyrical subject. - MetalFoREVer1228

Another eerie work, this time about everyone's favorite pervert - Jeffrey Dahmer. - MetalFoREVer1228
