DotW 168: SLayer Worst To Best

Disciples!!
Well, we couldn’t do a Megadeth ‘Worst to Best’ without doing a SLAYER!! ‘Worst to Best’ episode, right?!

Well, here you go! We took a long, hard look at the Slayer studio works and then took the task of ranking them in our preferred order and then compared them to Metalhammer’s list to see how they compare.

So turn it up, and feel free to carve a little nod to Slayer in your arm while you’re at it!

In this episode we’re going to present our case that the often-dismissed Slayer albums featuring Paul Bostoph (with Jeff Hanneman, and excluding ‘Undisputed Attitude’) are well worth your time to either become acquainted with or to become reacquainted with, in our new feature segment ‘Underrated.’
 
We’re talking Divine Intervention, Diabolus in Musica & God Hates Us All. Join us as we discuss those albums and play some standout tracks.
 
Have a great week my friends – and STAY HEAVY!
