It's good but a bit short and repetitive. Not all the tracks are very interesting.

Slayers seminal 'Rein In Blood' is an album all music fan's need too hear before they die

Widely regarded as a before and after thrash metal album the speed and technical excellence of the musicianship is quite simply breathtaking . Take particular note of the ground breaking drum sections and consider this - some of those drum breaks we take for granted now were recorded for the very first time on this release

'Rein In Blood' is thrash metals equivalence of walking on the moon

Mighty

To this day, this is still one of the heaviest, fastest albums I've ever heard. It has aged supremely well, and its probably the best sounding Slayer album in terms of production. Postmortem is my favorite Slayer track, but every riff on this album kills.

Lo bueno si breve, dos veces bueno. Eso debió pensar Slayer al publicar este seminal 'Reign in blood', obra clave para entender todo el desarrollo posterior del Metal Extremo. En menos de media hora, los californianos desplegaron un auténtico arsenal de riffs a velocidad endiablada. Intentar analizar los detalles de este disco es darse contra una pared impenetrable, que en definitiva bien podría ser una definición válida para resumir lo que este disco representa. Nada comparte Slayer con sus compañeros del big four americano, siendo 'Reign in blood' un disco más agresivo y potente que cualquier disco de cualquier banda de la época. Tenemos que ubicarnos en el contexto de que este álbum vio la luz en 1986, cuando el Metal Extremo apenas y empezaba a desarrollarse. Nada sería de bandas como Sepultura o de géneros como el Death Metal sin 'Reign in blood'.

I can tell there are skilled musicians here, but the lyrics are just...no.

I'm not a huge metal head or anything, but I like this album a lot. All the songs are pretty short and sweet, and the guitar solos are just plain awesome.

Not my favourite Slayer album, but a stone cold classic. If you "must" like greats like Beatles, Nas, Velvet Underground or whoever, than Slayer is a "must" too for metal.

Undeniably a game changer for thrash and extreme metal. 29 minutes of non stop relentless music. Its like getting hit by a train. If you like metal, you already know and love this album so I don't even need to recommend it.

One of the genuine game changing metal records ever. Reign in blood, is Slayer's most important record, an aggressive tour de force which took thrash metal to another level. The centrepiece of the record is undoubtedly the brilliant, Angel of death, a total classic. Reign in blood, is loud and fast as is not a moment too long. Brilliant.
