Hell Awaits

Slayer ‎SKU: 3984-14031-1



Hell Awaits is their second studio album, released in March 1985 by Metal Blade Records. A big influence for many future extreme bands, the album’s lyrical themes deal with hell and Satan, as with their debut; the intro of the title track played backwards reveals the repeated phrase “join us”.

Musically, the album features the band’s most progressive and diverse work compared to their previous releases, and according to Kerry King, he and Jeff Hanneman were very into Mercyful Fate at the time, which then led to the longer and more progressive songs.
