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
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
The Best Slayer Song - GlaubersonV 2 Comments
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
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.
Awesome song has an nice groove to it probably slayers third best war song after war ensemble and chemical warfareV 2 Comments
I like this song lyrically
Most brutal Slayer song.
4TH BEST SONG BY SLAYER
This song is the insane sequel to Exile. From the start, Tom Araya abuses his vocal chords and almost bursts veins to the brutal lyrics and ever-so-hateful chorus of violent dismemberment, Paul Bostaph relentlessly beats on his drums, Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman torture their guitars at frantic tempos until the middle, where it slows down. Paul does double bass while the song gets heaviest. Don't be deceived, as there are some hateful lyrics in the middle. Then you reach the solo where Kerry King rapes his whammy bar and wah pedal to the point the solo sounds like someone's screams while he is brutally dismembered to the lyrics. Not to say the solo is bad though, as the solo fits the song. Then you get the violent chorus twice, and to top it all off, this song gives you a flaming middle finger.V 1 Comment
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!
WTF? This has to be up there, next to Raining Blood. - oriondiedalone
This should at least be somewhere in the top five. unbelievably low down. Not quite as good as Angel of Death but it should be very closely behind
My favorite slayer song. Tom's screams as if he's being tortured himself. And the lead is absolutely brilliant.
Shame on you all!
This essential slayer must be to 3 or 4 for sure.
Get back to basics people
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
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.
Heres a patricians slayer list

2. Behind the crooked cross
3. The antichrist
4. War ensemble
5. Dead skin mask
27! Why? Epic drum intro epic solo awesome chorus. Very underrated.
The riff is too killer! How come this song's not-so popular?!
One of their best songs, and amazingly no one thought of putting it on this list yet. - HALOOOOOOOOV 2 Comments
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
Just seriously. Nobody thought of this? Probably the third best song on Reign In Blood.
Just amazing, with changing tempo midway in the song that actually is really awesome.
One of the best Reign In Blood song
What? This is one of the best Slayer songs! - Navarro
