Slayer - Hell Awaits mp3 album
Hell Awaits is the second studio album by American thrash metal band Slayer, released in March 1985 by Metal Blade Records. The band's 1983 debut Show No Mercy became Metal Blade Records' highest-selling release, and as a result, producer Brian Slagel desired to release a second Slayer album. To that end, Slagel financed a recording budget (Show No Mercy was paid for by band members) and recruited several experienced producers to help in the studio.
Hell Awaits is the logical result of what the EP started, as a whole. The NWOBHM-isms of that debut are completely gone, with a couple of exceptions, and the songs are among the most progressive in Slayer's entire catalog. With the exceptions of "Necrophiliac" and "Hardening of the Arteries", all of the songs clock in above four minutes. It says a lot about this album, however, that despite being Slayer's most 'progressive' record that it still comes off as one of the most absolutely malicious records ever made. regardless of genre) This shows the most in Tom Araya's vocal performance, which is frankly one of the most caustic vocal performances ever recorded for a metal album.
When it was released in 1985, Slayer's second full album, Hell Awaits, seemed to many a nearly impenetrable cacophony of sound. However, it proved to be incredibly ahead of its time instead, and has since been confirmed as a mandatory item in the band's remarkable discography. Why? Well, despite its many memorable tunes, the songwriting on Slayer's 1983 debut, Show No Mercy, was firmly entrenched in blues-based punk/metal, and it wasn't until the following year's more excessive Haunting the Chapel EP that the band began adding the unusual arrangements, varying tempos,.
Existing on damnation's edge The priest had never known To witness such a violent show Of power overthrown. Angels fighting aimlessly Still dying by the sword Our legions killing all in sight To get the one called Lord. The gates of Hell lie waiting as you see There's no price to pay, just follow me I can take your lost soul from the grave Jesus knows your soul can not be saved
