Slayer ‎– Reign In Blood

Notes:
The third studio album from Slayer, originally released on: October, 1986.

CBS, who distributed Def Jam albums, had refused to handle Reign In Blood despite the fact that it was already paid for. Their issues were down to two things: the cover and the "Angel Of Death" (they demanded from Slayer to remove that song)
Columbia refused to released it because of the "Angel of Death" song and Geffen released it but without the logo present.

It is considered one of the most influential thrash metal albums of all time, and was certified gold (500,000+ sales) by the RIAA on November 20, 1992 (six years after its release)
It reached #94 on the Billboard 200 and produced four singles:
"Raining Blood", "Angel Of Death", "Necrophobic", "Criminally Insane"

With a total time of 28 minutes and 58 seconds, Slayer changed the game forever.

“There was constant competition between all of those bands,” says Brian Slagel, countering Kerry’s assertion. “Who was the fastest band? They took that very seriously, and that’s one thing that led to the speed of Reign In Blood.”

“Kerry and Jeff said that they didn’t want to do a slow record - they wanted to do something fast. We were young. We were hungry. And we wanted to be faster than everybody else.”

Araya about "Angel Of Death": "That scream took two takes..."

The producer (Rick) told them that they didn’t need any reverb on the guitars or vocals. The result was a sound that was as dry as a bone and heavy as granite; it instantly set Slayer apart from the other kids on the thrash metal block. “It’s very close to being a live album, very well recorded in a studio. Slayer didn’t sound like anyone else, that’s why the album sounds different than other metal albums. They really were creating their own genre.”

Well, my copy sounds incredible. Surface noise is non existent, the sound stage is open and wide, bottom end is not what others have mentioned here, it's exactly where it's supposed to be, the mids are perfect, highs not brittle or harsh at all. My setup is a Soundsmith Carmen mkII, Sutherland KC Vibe, on a Pro-Ject 2Xperience Classic, fwiw.

Let me tell you, if you consider yourself a fan of Slayer and want to own RIB on vinyl, go for the 80's pressings. Avoid the American remasters, invest in the real deal. This pressing literally melts your face off.

As someone has already stated, some copies came without the lyrics, only a plain black inner sleeve.

Re: Probably a bootleg. It would have been really helpful if an argument was given to support the statement. "Probably" doesn't cut it.
After some research, it looks like this might be a bootleg because the catalogue number "74321-24848-2" was used for the 1994 reissue that had a different CD face (the standard black and silver face you find on any version of this album released from 1994 onwwards). So this one uses the 1994 serial number and a pre-1994 CD face. That's why it might be a bootleg.
Is that what the submitter of the information had in mind?

I suppose this is what that bass knob on our receivers is there for...turn it all the way up, peeps! It sounds pretty solid when you do that, but without doing so, very flat & tinny.

Just picked it up from my local record store today!! The fucking rain at the locked groove!!! that’s why you should only get the US pressing. Overall the album sounds nice good lower ends and nice highs also. Worth every cent I paid for. Not really sure if I got this release or the other USA release since the indicators have the same names

Dont forget to say this german original pressing is I N S A N E. 20 years try to find one decent album version to enjoy the album and broke my neck with dignity but the other 3 versions that i own (Remastered CD 94',CD 09', LP 13') sucks with some digital mp3 files. So i spend some extra money to get this and in the end i dont regret a penny. You must kill me if you try to stole my copy..
