Some of their finest mid-tempo songs on these releases, but which do you prefer?

definitely seasons in the abyss, in terms of the album that was the most ingrained on my supple teen brain back in the early 90s

war ensemble, dead skin mask, hallowed point, and born of fire all have high ranking in terms of my favourite slayer songs from their mid-period

Just like lifeless, I have to go for Seasons, one of the 1st metal albums my older brother bought back when it came out and one of the magical opening portals into the metal world for me as a kid.

Seasons In The Abyss because the sick and extremely cool song Dead Skin Mask.

Seasons... was the beginning of the end for the band.

sorry, just random musing here..
the last time I actually sit down and listened to south of heaven, it made me think they were going through a slight identity crisis

like they really tried hard not to write another "hardcore" album, and having this intention, well, sorta messed things up for them?

South of Heaven, and for me it's not even close.

The album-opening triple-play of "South of Heaven", "Silent Scream" and "Live Undead" is a non-stop, pummelling thrashfest of insanity and evil...simply a perfect start. And the album doesn't let up for a second, right through to the madness of "Spill the Blood".

Seasons is great in its own right, but I don't think it can touch SoH. I always felt like there were a couple of songs on Seasons that lacked the typical Slayer vibe, particularly "Expendable Youth" and "Hallowed Point".

For Mandatory Suicide and Behind the Crooked Cross it has to be South of Heaven.

is it generally accepted that Divine Intervention is a non-album for this band?

Excellent songwriting from both albums. Hard pressed to pick a favorite, but there are more Slaytanic riffs on South Of Heaven.

And let's not forget the mighty "Ghosts of War."

South of Heaven no question. They realized they couldn't do another RIB and made the ideal compromise. Then on Seasons they tried to blend the 2 and it comes out sounding forced, and the production is tame.
