With their second full length album and third overall, Slayer upped the ante in every way possible. Breakneck tempos, gruesome lyrics and proper production gave the band a progressive and distinct sound that was becoming all their own. 1985's Hell Awaits is where the band began to sound truly sinister and evil, Dave Lombardo's famous double bass drumming brilliantly propelling the lightspeed riffing and twisted solos of Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman. Bassist Tom Araya's dark and demonic lyrics touched on everything from the mind of a serial killer ("Kill Again") to vampires ("At Dawn They Sleep") and unhinged lust ("Necrophiliac"). Hell Awaits stands as one of best black and thrash metal documents of the '80s and its influence is vast and undeniable.
