As Slayer celebrate the anniversary of, to me, their career-spanning masterpiece ''Reign In Blood'',it's bard to believe that 25 years have gone by since Slayer's 1986 awesome release. In my opinion, ''Reign In Blood'' still stands to this day as the peak of excellence, not only for Slayer, but for all thrash/speed metal bands on the planet.The 28 or so minutes of pure sonic attack that is ''Reign In Blood''laid the foundation for Slayer to build their mastery of the world's finest thrash/ speed metal upon. Even now in a market full of thrash bands and ''wannabes'' nothing comes even remotely close to ''Reign In Blood''.I'm willing to bet that back in 1986,Slayer had no idea that the album they had just released would prove to be,without a doubt, the greatest thrash/ speed album ever.So,congratulations to Slayer for the 25th. anniversary of their incredible ''Reign In Blood ''.
