About this album

Show No Mercy is the debut album by American thrash metal titans Slayer, released in December 1983 through Metal Blade Records. Brian Slagel signed the band to Metal Blade after watching the band perform the song “Phantom of the Opera” by Iron Maiden. The band was forced to self-finance their debut album, combining the savings of vocalist Tom Araya, who was employed as a respiratory therapist, and money borrowed from guitarist Kerry King’s father.

Touring extensively promoting the album, the band brought close friends and family members along the trip, who helped backstage with lighting and sound. Although criticized for poor production quality, it became Metal Blade Records highest selling release, also producing the songs “Die by the Sword”, “The Antichrist” and “Black Magic”, which are played at Slayer’s live shows regularly.

    Thrash metal perfected. The first three tracks are the greatest 3 hit combos.

    I forgive those who disagreed, but for me this album follows the line of the beginning of Black Metal, with bands such as Venom, Celtic Frost, Mercyful Fate, Sodom, Destruction and derivatives ...

    I always blast this album when I go for runs, Dave's fast drumming,Jeff and Kerry's speeding guitars topped off with Tom's screams shit's an adrenaline rush for me I can go 5 miles without stopping.
