Slayer have one of the most diehard fanbases in metal history, and in some ways, they're also the ultimate band's band. Intensity begets intensity, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a metal musician out there who doesn't love at least one Slayer record.
Metal Hammer asked several of the now-defunct thrash titans' peers and disciples to pick their single favorite Slayer song, and Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth was one of them. See his selection below.
For some strange reason, "Reborn" was always my favorite track on the Reign in Blood album, sandwiched somewhere between the album's megalithic opener and closer. I love the hyperactive groove of the song, the tempestuous gear changes and, above all, the lyrics about a pact with the devil and a witch's retribution against the church for being tortured and burnt at the stake.
It's fast as fuck and Tom Araya is venomous in his delivery. "Reborn" is just classic Slayer, and a song that really deserves far more attention than it gets, hence my appreciative waffling.
