25 years ago on this day, October 7, Slayer released the pivotal Reign In Blood. At the time, it was a huge risk for the band to release their third album through Def Jam Records (a mainly hip hop label). However, it ended up paying off big time. Not only did it mark the first time Slayer worked with producer Rick Rubin, but also produced one of the most influential metal albums of all time and made Slayer the metal icons they are now.
Armed with classics like “Angel Of Death” and “Raining Blood,” the album has become a must have for every metal fan. However, to celebrate Reign In Blood’s 25th anniversary, we decided to play a deeper cut off of the album. So pay you respect to the almighty Slayer by blasting “Postmortem” in the video above.
