But not Reign in Blood huh?
Thanks! I think 1986 might have been the most competitive year in Metal (or maybe 1990).

Yeah I love the two classic songs on Reign, but I'm overall more a fan of their early stuff (Show No Mercy ).
1990 was insane: Painkiller, Rust in Peace, Spiritual Healing, Left Hand Path, Seasons in the Abyss, Hammerheart, Cowboys from Hell, etc
