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. - calmeehan

Should be higher. Very evil and sinister sounding song. - IronSabbathPriest

The Best Slayer Song - Glauberson

4 Silent Scream

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

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

Another war-like song with faster beats. - calmeehan
