My dear friend Curtis Hall, who despite his percussive role in soft-rockin' Grand Archives, is a diehard metal dude, and one of my favorite people with whom to talk hard rock shop. He once astutely described Slayer's 1986 star turn, Reign in Blood, as "the Texas Chainsaw Massacre of metal." I have a personal preference for South of Heaven, but RIB is undoubtedly their take-to-the-grave thrash masterpiece. Video for "Angel of Death" (a song Public Enemy once sampled, with excellent results) is after the jump.
