Our farewell to Slayer series continues, leaving the early Metal Blade years behind for a look at the classic Def Jam era and three classic albums Reign in Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons in the Abyss. Timeless Slayer tracks, live versions, covers, and Slayer samples illustrate the rise and reign of Slayer’s evil dominion over the mainstream in the late 1980s. Know your Roots!
