Best Songs On Slayer's South of Heaven

The Top Ten

1 South of Heaven

Title track intro that shows Slayer's slower, yet just as evil side. Lyrics about post-apocalyptic themes.


2 Mandatory Suicide

War song that became a fan favourite.

3 Spill the Blood

Very dark song, you can hear the evil seeping through the riffs. There's a melancholy that's eerie, the sound of brutal despair. It's the song that introduced me to metal. Not their heaviest song, but one of their most harrowing.

Slow drumming and terrifying riffs complete the album in this outro.

Should be higher. Very evil and sinister sounding song.

The Best Slayer Song

4 Silent Scream

Incredible drumming and fast riffs pick right off from South of Heaven. Lyrics on abortion.

South of heaven and Seasons in the abyss are just as good as Reign in blood - and this song is among their greatest.

5 Ghosts of War

Most epic turn from Fast to Slow ever. The intense first two minutes to a final huge breakdown at the end. EPIC!

Another war-like song with faster beats.

6 Live Undead

Song about Zombies with slow beats but fast double bass, featuring Tom's last scream ever.

I can't get over how great that riff at the start is

7 Behind the Crooked Cross

Song about Nazis with awesome riffs.

8 Read Between the Lies

Best song on the album; easily one of Slayers all time top 10 songs.

Religion-basher with great lyrics.

9 Cleanse the Soul

Short and fast with crazy solos.

10 Dissident Aggressor

Awesome Judas Priest cover. Deviates from the original only enough to make it sound like Slayer.
