Slayer, Seasons in the Abyss

Well, well. This is “the” Slayer disc. All of Slayer’s previous albums had been about one thing: speed (With the possible exception of South of Heaven). So this album was a bit of a shocker. You still get the trademark Slayer hyper-riffing. Same all out attack on the drums. Some unholy/I’m coming to kill you lyrics.
However on certain songs Slayer tone the speed down. The songs are still powerful, just not “in-your-face.” Some of the songs are more of a mid-tempo thrash (Expendable Youth). The title track even has *gasp* melody. As always with any Slayer record you will get the trademark Slayer solo, as well. The last great disc Slayer put out.
