Overview

Released at the forefront of the early-'80s thrash movement, Show No Mercy proved to be only a small step toward Slayer's domination of the extreme metal scene, basically amounting to a cleaned-up version of black metal stalwarts Venom. Everything about this album, from the production to the musicianship, is amateurish compared to later releases, but in the same way Metallica was on their own debut, Kill 'Em All. Despite the band's shortcomings, a number of future classics are present on this album, including concert favorites "The Antichrist," "Die by the Sword," and "Black Magic." Show No Mercy remains a solid, if inessential, part of the Slayer legacy. [The 1987 reissue includes three tracks from the Haunting the Chapel EP, though those have since been omitted in favor of both records being independently re-released.]

This album has great guitars but it seems the quality of songs is low and recording too. All the tracks are at the same speed. That's a bad thing. This album is from the first track to the last one fast, fast and fast!

Slayer at their best, man. This album shows no mercy at all. I'd reccomend this to anyone who isn't a strict christian. Better than Reign In Blood. If you're new to Slayer, get this. This album rules.
