The Top Ten

1 Repentless

The riff is very good

2 Chasing Death

One of Slayer's sadder songs, yet is still brutal. King wrote this upon the death of a longtime guitar tech, and knowing Jeff was "chasing death". Intricate riffing like Megadeth is found in this song. Tom Araya's vocal performance was great, especially when his rage was climbing at the second pre-chorus.

6 Piano Wire

This song is written by Jeff Hanneman, final song he ever wrote I think. RIP. - IronSabbathPriest

Easily the best song on the album for me!

7 When the Stillness Comes

This is brutality without the speed! A more vocal-based song, and the way Tom sings, from brooding to rage filled. The lyrics are dark and psychotic, more along the lines of Tom Araya, kind of surprising that Kerry King wrote these lyrics.

Gives the soundtrack to a nuclear war

8 Cast the First Stone UListen to Sample
9 Pride In Prejudice

Slow and heavy, with an awesome riff right before the solo and during the outro. Should be in Top 5!

10 Delusions of Saviour

An amazing, sinister, evil sounding intro song. It features an awesome riff with great buildup. I love it! - ryanrimmel

The Contenders

11 Take Control

This should be at least top 5 - danielddf

It starts with one guitar doing an insanely fast riff, then a two guitar riff attack when the drums kick in. After the intro, the main riff gives you the feeling of running from countless tanks just befoe the verse kicks in. Great verses, and great chorus.
