Top 10 Slayer Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
Most all of the best ones are Jeff's work but this one is Kerry's masterpiece. The arrangement is more traditional than most classic Slayer tunes, but everything from the lyrics to the playing to the mix is absolute perfection.
Probably one of the most underrated Slayer songs out there.
To me the song truly begins after the guitar solo and then let me tell ya the song then comes in crashing, in my opinion the best Slayer riff of all time.
They may as well call this song "metal" - gemclobenV 1 Comment
If you tried distilling pure, irrational anger and hatred, you'd end up with this song, it's the ultimate condensation of everything that's even vaguely unpleasant.
It's one of the biggest "f you" songs out there, it doesn't make any apologies for the steaming, hateful turd it is, and I kind of dig that
Strangely, for a flaming, blood stained middle finger, this song has a BEAUTIFUL solo.V 1 Comment
In my opinion, the best Slayer song ever. Three badass solos in less than three minutes. I like it more than the other stuff on Reign of Blood.
It's just so weird!
Bizarre unique pseudo-chorus, solos everywhere, and breakneck speed. It's a truly underrated song.
Awesome song. Really fast. Crazy lyrics.
The best slayer song after Raining Blood and Angel of Death.V 1 Comment
Why is this track over-hated? I think it's a great, groovy tune. The drumming is phenomenal! Also, this and Vices have similar drum patterns in the intro, with a thunderous thumping beat.
Great song! It's so heavy! The intro make me crazy! The lyrics are great too!
I can't believe it's been 27 years since I first heard this tune and entered to the realm of Slayer. Great chorus: "No apparent motive, just kill and kill again... Survive my brutal thrashing and I'll hunt you to the end... My life's a constant battle, the rage of many men... HOMICIDAL MANIAC! "
This song is so underrated. Every member is at full force here. Some of the best riffs and drumming are found in this song. Also it is Tom's best vocal performance in my opinion. He truly sounds like a serial killer.
Riffing is ferocious and evil, and Tom gives his best vocal performance of all time.
One of their best songs, and amazingly no one thought of putting it on this list yet. - HALOOOOOOOOV 2 Comments
Great song with fast badass guitar, intense singing from Tom and great drumming. Should be higher than 35.
Love this one. Especially where Tom yells "CEREBRAL DEATH CAN COME TO YOU IN YOUR DREAMS! " Best way to end an album.
awweosoommmmee song.. why isn't it in the top 10? - hobbsy666V 1 Comment
This is a great song from a really good album, deserves to be higher than 26. It's not as good as Raining Blood, South of Heaven, and their other classics, but it's an amazing song that kicks off what I call their comeback album. Love it! - Djice1997
Take a deep breath because your life ends now if you don't vote for this! Awesome drumming and guitars mark this band's return to speed metal!
The vocals on this are absolutely sinister. Tom sounds pissed and the aggression on this track is awe inspiring.
Such a great track on reign in blood.

One of my favorite songs of all time, I can't believe its this low on the list.
WOW THIS IS VERY LOW... WAY TOO LOW. Easily makes the top 15 in my book, but apparently I'm crazy, cause nobody else seems to think that
Should be in the top twenty at least, Such a shame
Totally underrated Song in this list...V 1 Comment
Awesome song has an nice groove to it probably slayers third best war song after war ensemble and chemical warfareV 2 Comments
Why is this song 32nd? What? This is definitely a top 10 song guaranteed, right up there with their best.
My personal favorites: Raining Blood, Angel of Death, South of Heaven, the ENTIRE Seasons in the Abyss album, Cult, Hell Awaits, Chemical Warfare, World Painted Blood
I can't believe this song is so low...
What man cult is the best song its got a acidic touch everything for a metal band RELIGION IS WHORE
31? WHY? It's my favorite Christmas song!V 3 Comments
Best in show no mercy... just go listen
If this was on Raining Blood it would be in top 20 probably 15. But since it's newer it doesn't get the attention it deserves
62? This should be in the top 10 at least
This song influences me to live my life how I want - DoroExploro13
My 2nd favourite of my Big 4 favourite songsV 4 Comments
Horrifying lyrics about abortion adds to the darkness. It's a perfectly fast pickup from the slower South of Heaven, with insane double bass almost all the way through.
One of my favorite Slayer song amazing drums and great lyrics
For all Dave Lombardo fans this for sure one of the best Slayer tracks! Vote.
SEVERELY underrated track off South of Heaven. - BrobuskyV 3 Comments
27! Why? Epic drum intro epic solo awesome chorus. Very underrated.
The riff is too killer! How come this song's not-so popular?!
This is not only one of Slayer's best songs but no doubt one of best metal song ever. Really don't understand why people rate Angel of Death so much. It could be a hit during its era but cannot be considered a good song for a more reasonable reason. Gemini is heavy but flawless and not noisy, dark but embedded with very deep melody, also need to mention that guitar solo is better than in many other Slayer's songs
Criminally underrated and overlooked because it's the one original song on a covers song. The lyrics are so dark and personal. Makes you feel the presence of the zodiac killer the entire course of the song. When the song peaks it's like being one of zodiac's victims. And the music is heavy!
Totally agree if somebody pick this and put on top
