Occupying the sonic space between the frenetic Reign In Blood and the slower, more sinister tempos of South Of Heaven, Seasons In The Abyss saw Slayer release their most accessible album to date while still dealing with family-friendly themes like Satan, serial killers and war atrocities.
Where to start? The brilliant title track? The ferocious War Ensemble? Or the one song most likely to make you unable to sleep without the light on?

“For pure, unadulterated metal, it's Master Of Puppets or Reign In Blood. Or ...And Justice For All. Or South Of Heaven. Or Seasons In The Abyss. Vulgar Display Of Power and Cowboys From Hell were both pretty incredible at the time too.” (Thanks, ChrisVinnicombe)
