Almost five months before Metallica released Kill ‘Em All, Metal Blade owner Brian Slagel saw Slayer open a show for Bitch at the Woodstock Theater in LA. Blown away, he asked the band if it would submit a track to his upcoming compilation album Metal Massacre III. They agreed and when he heard the song they turned in, “Aggressive Perfector,” Slagel offered Slayer a record contract. On Dec. 3, 1983, the band released its scorching debut, Show No Mercy. Slayer wrote many of the songs for Show No Mercy before they were signed, including “Die by the Sword,” (“Black Magic”) and “Tormentor.” The rest were hashed out before the band entered the studio in November 1983. While the record is fierce and served as a major kick in the ass to other speed metal bands to ramp up their tempos and ratchet up their level of aggression, the production was sub-par, largely because it was recorded in a single week. “We did it every night from 11PM to seven in the morning,” Araya said. “It was the only time this guy could get away with charging us next to nothing. We paid him for his time and for the tape. ‘Here’s a $400 check.’ We spent $1,500 for it in total. Kerry borrowed money from his dad to pay for half, and I paid half.”                                                                                                                                                                                                          Show No Mercy was one of the first thrash records to include such blatantly Satanic lyrics and imagery: “Satan, our masters in evil mayhem guides us with every first step / Our axes are growing with power and fury, soon there’ll be nothingness left,” Araya growled on “Evil Has No Boundaries.”
