Ten studio albums of original material, thousands of live shows and over three decades into a career that's made them one of the biggest and most important metal bands in the world - the music of thrash metal legends Slayer is as brutal as it is beautiful, as punishing as it is precise, and as uncompromising as it is influential.
1990's Seasons In The Abyss is Slayer's fifth full-length effort and follow-up to the band's exploratory 1988 release South of Heaven. Slayer's third consecutive release produced by Rick Rubin finds the band restoring the immediacy of their 1986 high water mark Reign In Blood while simultaneously expanding their accessibility with refined riffs, decisive melodies and crisp arrangements. Includes the blazing Slayer favorites "War Ensemble," "Dead Skin Mask" and "Seasons In The Abyss."
