"That was a ****ing rock show.",
This review is from: Still Reigning (DVD)
Those words - spoken by Kerry King as he comes off stage at the end of this concert - are an apt summation. Not only are the brutal power, breathtaking speed, and dazzling precision of Slayer in live performance all on display, you have as a set list what is widely considered the greatest metal album in history.
Those of us who were around when "Reign in Blood" came out in 1986 are getting old enough to be careful about how vigorously we bang our heads. ("Ow, my neck!") Naturally, that includes the band members. Poor Dave Lombardo occasionally looks like he's going to have a heart attack. Yet somehow they still deliver this epic assault. I don't know how they do it. Maybe they really did sell their souls to the Devil!
