    This was an extremely hard choice and I mean extremely. Such a classic album. In the end, I had to go with raining blood. Excuse the typo btw on the poll name.

    Sooner, when you told me you are gonna run polls on the entire Slayer catalogue, I instantly knew that voting on 'Reign in Blood' was gonna be the toughest of them all for me. And now it is. 'RiB' is a truly sensational whirlwind of an album and frankly most of the super-velocity songs feel like a blur if you haven't heard them in a while.

    Anyway, I vote for 'Altar of Sacrifice'. Gives me the sweetest thrill hearing that one.

    Dang - as others have said, damn hard to separate them. Kinda like someone giving out 10 M&Ms to each person & asking them to rate the tastiest one...they're all good!

    In the end I went with Reborn. Why? Glad you asked. Because I don't reckon it'll attract many votes & it's a cracker of a song. Thought Jesus Saves would've been an early runner, too. Great lyrics!!!

    "Raining Blood", but "Postmortem" is a close second.

    How in the HELL can you choose just one song?

    Well Piece By Piece doesn't get enough attention so I'll vote that. But they're all my favorites for one reason or another.

    I'd have to go with "Angel Of Death". You really can't go
    wrong with anything on this album because it's a thrash
    classic.

    "Infamous Butcher, Angel Of Death"

    However the crack of thunder and splattering blood in the final song Raining Blood punctuates this album nicely.

    Postmortem,Raining Blood and Angel of Death is outstanding on Reign in Blood.
    However,my favorite Slayer-album is South of Heaven.

    "Reign In Blood" is a masterpiece through and through and one of the greatest records of all time. If I had to choose just one of the songs I'd have to go with "Angel Of Death". I'll never get tired of hearing that song. Absolutely brilliant.

    I agree, Angel Of Death is very brilliant.

    I also quite like the remixed version of Criminally Insane, in addition to the album version.

    I will pick Altar Of Sacrifice just because I haven't seen anyone mention it. The whole album is just insane. The songs almost run together as a collective but in the best way possible!

    I present the whole group of my favourites...

    From this most vicious and cutting edge LP the unquestionable top choice is:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnRZhLRv6eM

    You can't sideline the most devastating LP closer in the history of this band:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gy3BOmvLf2w

    My choice from the second LP could have been the opener, but this one is a massive killer:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NjUX8HZIFQ

    Same thing with the fourth LP:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X51t0UDxjgY

    Let's not forget the first LP, so many great songs there but only one prevails:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9_6Q_r8-eE

    Even in the company of "Reign In Blood", the towering monolith of thrash metal, and all these other masterpieces of the genre, my personal and perennial favourite will always be:

    Slayer is my favorite Thrash Metal band.

    Lyrically and thematically I may be far away from Slayer's messages, but I won't let that disturb my listening experience because I always have my own feelings, imaginations and thoughts about any bands music and I always take in the musical power the band generates. I don't have to agree on everything or support everything and I surely don't have to label myself as anyone based on what music I listen to. I don't have to and I won't become part of any band's image or ethos when I listen to it. When it comes to music, I always consider the music itself as the most important thing and the general vibe I get from the band. If I get a bad vibe from some band, I won't listen to it, no matter what the musical, instrumental, lyrical or productional values there are present.

    My 3 favorite songs from Reign in blood is: Postmortem,Angel of death and Raining blood. I dont think the rest of the songs on that album is nearly as good as these three songs are.
