Will probably just be preparing for Metallica when these guys are playing. Don't particularly like them myself.

anyway, recommendations (trying to go on the general opinion, rather than my personal preference):

Albums: Reign In Blood is the classic followed by Seasons In The Abyss, and South Of Heaven as their legendary albums. God Hates Us All and World Painted Blood are the best of their more recent albums.

Songs, the biggest hits are
Angel Of Death
Raining Blood (with Postmortem leading into it :music-rockon: )
War Ensemble
Dead Skin Mask
South Of Heaven
Seasons In The Abyss
Disciple
Cult
World Painted Blood
Hell Awaits

would expect to hear most of those played.

I have always loved Slayer and album wise they are top. I have started to grow tired of them live though. Not sure why because I love the music. It just seems that a Slayer now is like the same song played on repeat. Like I said, don't take me wrong, I love the band and all. Seen them live a ton of times as well.
2011 - 05 May Iron Maiden (Frankfurt, Germany), 18 June Roger Waters The Wall Live (Duesseldorf, Germany), 2 July - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax (Gelsenkirchen, Germany), 8-9 July Sonisphere France (Amneville)

I've seen them a few times, and they dont always fit all those songs in (at festivals) but yeah, I expect to hear most of them
