    Thanks for the heads up Ted, yeah the title is a bit corny.

    Araya had said that Exodus were the best in 1982/83. Also, when I listened to Bonded by Blood, it was solid but already heard. Damage to them. But, again, Slayer immediately hit his target with their first album, like Metallica. Venom were untouchable for me during this golden year.
    Strange but true.
    Thanks for elaborating. Yes Exodus was an influence on the Bay Area thrash scene in the early 80's; I think their problem was that Metallica and Slayer were signed and started releasing albums before them, and Exodus' 1st album, Bonded by Blood was not released until Spring 1985 (although it had been recorded in Summer 1984) due primarily to issues with the album cover I believe. The following year, 1986, saw them part ways with their record label and original singer Paul Baloff which resulted in another lengthy delay until their 2nd album was released.

    Thanks also for the link; I'm not too familiar with that controversy.

    tbh, I listened to the first album when it was released in 1985. very good musically but Paul Baloffs singing, well .... I do not want to be disrespectful.
    their second album did not make high flames either with a new thrashy clone of Bon Scott. Curious. I dropped this band definitively. I was more attracted to Celtic Frost and Bathory and of course Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth or Overkill.

    I mean, why didnt you just say you were sad that the new album didn't come to fruition like previously planned. I am fairly certain we will see those 6 repentless tracks released in some form or other.

    Perhaps there’ll be an EP.

Found Slayer when South Of Heaven was a new release in 88 but I of course had heard of them as early as 85 as well.

    My Triad Of Greatness that is Slayer would be in order - 3 Seasons In The Abyss 2 Hell Awaits 1 South Of Heaven.
    Never cared for Megadeth, Thel.

    I have the Killing Is My Business and Rust In Peace albums.

    Well, Gary Holt seems to be pretty much nixing the idea of one last Slayer album now.

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/wil...ays-gary-holt/

    As stated by at least 1 other person above, Kerry has revealed that there were about 5 or 6 leftover songs from the sessions for their last studio album. So it's a question of what the fate of those songs might be if there are no further studio albums from Slayer on the horizon.

    Perhaps an EP, as also previously stated above.
