Video: ‘Reign In Blood,’ The Abbreviated Version

Posted by on November 8, 2011


When Slayer’s Reign in Blood came out in 1986, it was an instant classic, short, brutal and to the point. However, to a YouTube user, the 28:56 running time was way too much, so he (or she?) layered all ten tracks on top of each other into one 4:56 masterpiece. It starts out with a punishing wall of white noise, or black noise, if you will. But since there are only three songs that top the three-minute mark, by the end, it’s all album opener and closer “Angel of Death” and “Raining Blood,” the two most iconic songs on an already iconic album. This has been out for a while, but thanks to Metal Injection for bringing it to our attention.
