Kill Again

Slayer is one of the most important bands of all time.  Having immense influence on the metal genre as a whole, I'd say just about any current band would cite them as being an influence - as well as many hardcore bands.  But you already know all of that.  On to the record at hand.  This is the band's 1985 LP, ' Hell Awaits.'  I'd argue that this is some of the band's best material, behind 'Reign In Blood' and 'Seasons In The Abyss.'  I believe this is a first press on Metal Blade and Combat Records, it has the printed inner sleeve.  One of the most important bands in history.  RIP Jeff Hanneman.
