An unbelievably sad loss for the heavy metal community is at hand. Since 1981, the group has stayed quintessentially Slayer, never going full hog into trends or lame attempts to get on the radio. Instead, they've built a new vocabulary of thrash metal for fans to latch onto, and to help show how evil yet fun heavy metal can be.We looked back at their entire discography and picked the best song from each of their twelve studio albums. Throughout their career, even when approaching new ideas the band has brought heaviness and speed, and even in their darkest moments would go on to write songs that still hold up. Check out each song individually below, and take it with you in our Spotify playlist.

SHOW NO MERCY, "Black Magic"If one song exemplifies why Slayer soon became one of heavy metal's most popular acts, "Black Magic" makes a pretty great argument why. The song takes a quarter of its length to build up drama, guitarist Jeff Hanneman summoning a triumphant riff to carry the song through. Drummer Dave Lombardo is equally as thunderous, an encompassing reminder of thrash metal's dominance in the 80s, and how evil Slayer can get.
