Show No Mercy is Slayer's debut album released in December 1983. It was criticized for its poor quality, but it came Metal Blade Records highest selling release, selling 15,500 to 20,000 albums, it sold 15,000 copies overseas.

Show No Mercy is the debut studio album by Slayer, released in December 1983 through Metal Blade Records. Brian Slagel signed the band to Metal Blade after watching the band perform the song Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden. Touring extensively promoting the album, the band brought close friends and family members along the trip, who helped backstage with lighting and sound

Show No Mercy occupies a weird spot in the band's discography; this is Slayer most indebted to their NWOBHM and Judas Priest-based roots. The riffs and especially the lead guitar is altogether more rooted in conventional melody than later Slayer; the drumming isn't as fast, showcasing more of a Motorhead undercurrent than anything else, and Tom Araya's vocals are closer to what you'd consider proper singing.

Slayer Show No Mercy Evil Has No Boundaries.

A month after Slayer handed Slagel the master tape, Metal Blade released Show No Mercy. Despite having no time to properly promote the album it quickly became the label’s best-selling release. Four years after it came out, Metal Blade reissued the disc and attached the three songs from the band’s 1984 three-song EP Haunting The Chapel. When Show No Mercy was released again in 1994, the label added Aggressive Perfector, but included just one song from Haunting the Chapel - Chemical Warfare. It was definitely the birth of the Slayer sound, Araya said
