Favorite Slayer ‘Reign in Blood’ Song – Readers Poll

Def Jam

Time flies when you’re reigning in blood! It was Oct. 7, 1986 when Slayer introduced fans to their future metal classic, ‘Reign in Blood,’ and the music world hasn’t been the same since. This Readers Poll reflects on that landmark album and asks you, the metal fans, to tell us which song off of ‘Reign in Blood’ is your favorite.

By the time ‘Reign in Blood’ arrived in 1986, Slayer had already started building a solid metal following, but nowhere near what would happen after ‘Reign in Blood’ was released. The controversial content assured that there would be no radio airplay, but when did that matter to metal fans in the first place?

The album’s opening and closing tracks got the most attention, with ‘Angel of Death’ tackling the touchy subject of human experimentation while the epically heavy closer ‘Raining Blood’ became a metal staple and moshpit “must” for years to come. In between the foursome of Araya, King, Hanneman and Lombardo pounded away on such furious cuts as ‘Piece by Piece,’ ‘Altar of Sacrifice,’ ‘Epidemic’ and ‘Postmortem.’

Simply put, Slayer’s ‘Reign in Blood’ ranks as one of metal’s greatest moments. Now comes the hard part. Tell us which song off of the album is your favorite by voting in the Readers Poll below:
