Slayer - War Ensemble

appears on Seasons in the Abyss (1990)

Anyone who had been around long enough to remember the metal scene in the 80s and 90s will recall that masochistic day that having recovered from your latest bout of mosh pit bruising, you decided to up the ante and brave attendance at your first Slayer gig! Bridging the gap between thrash and death metal, Slayer are not for the faint hearted and this track is no exception.

Penned by the late, great Jeff Hanneman this song may well have a similar effect on your ears as Mike Tyson did on Evander Holyfield's!!
