Slayer | The Vinyl Conflict | Limited Edition 180g 11 LP Box Set

  • Sale
  • $ 259.98

Originally issued in 2010, The Vinyl Conflict marked the first time in their 30 year history that Slayer, the single most distinctive and radical thrash metal band of all time, saw its ten American Recordings albums released as a limited-edition, high-end, box set.

Ten albums on 11 discs, The Vinyl Conflict features the band's entire Def/American Recordings catalog: Reign In Blood (1986), South of Heaven (1988), Seasons In The Abyss (1990), the double-record Live Decade of Aggression (1991), Divine Intervention (1994), Undisputed Attitude (1998), God Hates Us All (2001), Christ Illusion (2006), and World Painted Blood (2009).

Throughout their influential career, Slayer has reigned supreme as the single most distinctive and radical thrash metal band anywhere. Graphic lyrics, saturated in controversy and disturbing imagery...the frenzied guitar playing, powerful vocals, and unrelenting pounding drums at breakneck speed...the unparalleled concert performances...the shocking and blood-fueled albums all have kept their rabid, head-banging fans enthralled in mayhem.

"Most longtime Slayer fans may not have these records at this point," said American Recordings' Dino Paredes, "or their copies are completely beat-up, so to have the complete catalog in this first-class presentation is terrific. For the newer fans, this is their opportunity to really get into this band the way that they could have if they were born 20 years earlier."

American/Sony Legacy invested a great amount of care into making The Vinyl Conflict, treating the albums the way they would treat a great jazz, classical, Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record, something that isn't normally done for metal records. All ten albums have been re-mastered from the original analog flat master tapes and were pressed on the highest quality, 180-gram audiophile vinyl at RTI. 

"Everything about The Vinyl Conflict - the look of it, the feel of it - is very strong, very powerful, very Slayer," added Parades, "from the music to the dripping, bloody pentagram on the front of the box. It's perfect."
