Slayer's Reign In Blood turns 25 today
Released - 1986
Twenty five years ago today, Reign In Blood was released on Def Jam Records. At the time of this record's release, I was at the ripe age of six years old. In all honesty, I got into Slayer pretty late in the game in 2003, for which I feel no shame. When I was growing up, my older brother was a total metal head and I have been aware of the band for as long as I can remember. The most vivid memory I have as a child involving Slayer and my brother is me telling him, "If you don't stop listening to that devil-worshiping music, I won't be your brother anymore." Fast forward to 2011, I worship at the altar of Slayer and my brother listens to Linkin Park and Disturbed.
