South of Heaven songs Product Information
South of Heaven album for sale by Slayer was released Jul 24, 2007 on the Legacy label. With 1986's REIGN IN BLOOD, Slayer reached the pinnacle of its rapid-fire, speed metal style. For the band's next effort, instead of embracing its hardcore roots even further, the band retraced its metal influences, namely Black Sabbath.1988's SOUTH OF HEAVEN surprised many fans because it contained several mid-paced, dirge-like compositions that spotlighted metal's crunch over punk's reckless energy.

South of Heaven CD music contains a single disc with 10 songs. ...See Full Description

||Great Metal Album, Not Slayer's best work though.|
Yes, it is definitely slower than most other Slayer albums but is still amongst the great thrash albums of the 1980's. Awesome album art, too.
By Cory E (phoenix, AZ, USA)
The best Slayer album so far. AMazing thrash from Slayer once again! The riffs are catchy the vocals are the typical Slayer voxs but there is nothing here that made me even think about making this a 4 star. RECCOMENDED

||second best slayer album|
The album was awesome at that time of the 80's. It still rocks. Silent scream and live undead were the better tracks. Not as good as seasons in the abyss. Then again not many albums are maybe Megadeths count down to extinction.

Slayer slowed things down a bit for this release, but its still heavier than almost anything that was out there at the time. Added hints of melody, Dave Lombardo's killer drumming and awesome production by Rick Rubin make this album a killer.
