I wish that were the case in the stores I had been to when I first got into this music. I discovered Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits through the internet, never once saw them in a "major" store.

If people are buying the first two albums that much though, then that's a very good thing.

This man speaks the truth.

I can kind of see this, back in the day Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits were very hard to find in stores while Reign In Blood and South of Heaven had much better distribution, going to a major record label starting with Reign In Blood really helped Slayer's production and reach. Of course for this to be an issue everyone in attendance would have to be old enough to have bought these albums when they first came out which a lot of Slayer fans probably aren't.

I really like Gojira, but they should be happy if they become just 1/25th of what Slayer became

Cheers !

Was in a mall today and saw two copies of Show No Mercy and one copy of Hell Awaits.
