Slayer – Reign In Blood

F’ing Slayer.  I can’t usually imagine Slayer without that word in front of it.  How else can you sum up a band that got their start after a press packet featuring a photo of a bloody naked female “corpse” (rumored) got them local LA shows featuring heavy Satanic imagery?   As the years wore on, Slayer was less about the devil and more about just straight kicking your ass – and about the time they dropped Reign in Blood on the world in 1986 – well it was about the heaviest of all heavy metal.

Slayer’s brutal lyrical subjects are outdone only by the sheer tonnage of their accompanying avalanche of guitar riffs and double bass drumming.  It’s an acquired taste, but once you embrace them it’s a feverous one – you might even find yourself carving the band’s name in your arm, or on your back…

What’s that? You have no interest in that?  Well there’s room for you anyway, or not…Slayer doesn’t really care.  Afterall, they’re f’ing Slayer man.

Here’s a little diddy about the Holocaust to begin your journey….

Record Club began in the cold, dank, snowmageddon scene that was New England of January 2011. We’re probably no different than you. We all work in cubicles, some in smaller, less private cubicles than others; that just means we have to be even sneakier about how we listen to our music. But we have to listen to our music, mostly as a way of saving our own personal sanity. Sometimes our opinions lead us to debates that may or may not be published in their entirety on this site, but I can promise you’ll at least get a glimpse of the way our minds work. The main goal is to find new music we like or find old music that we didn’t know we liked. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes it’s a total and complete disaster. After our ears have rejoiced or stopped bleeding we try something else. This is our pattern, every Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes, when the club isn’t officially in session, just to keep everyone on their toes, we throw in a theme day. We’re beginning to run low on our original list, so please, if you have albums that you’d like us to review or themes that you’d like to see our playlist of, feel free to contribute. After all, we’re all in this together once we punch the time clock. So if you’re busy (or just plain bored) lurking in your cubicle as you read this join in. After all, life wasn’t meant to be lived staring at a computer screen. I guarantee you, it’s at least more fun when you plug the headphones in.
