I will have to say that in my opinion Slayer would have to be the biggest contributer to metal. I put the headphones on , looked through the collection and Slayer-Reign in Blood in my opinion is THE metal album that started the metal we enjoy today!
This album when it came out in 1986, blew me and the whole metal scene away. The double bass of Dave Lombardo (which at the time was almost non-existent,) the horrific vocals of Tom Araya, the screaming leads of Kerry King, and the masterful songwriting of Jeff Hanneman changed all metal and started (in my opinion) death metal, black metal, and thrash metal!!
So if you think you like metal and have never heard this album, you know nothing!

Reign in Blood is the third studio album and major label debut by the American thrash metal band Slayer. Released in October 1986, the album was the band’s first collaboration with record producer Rick Rubin, whose input helped the band’s sound evolve.
Reign in Blood was very well received by both critics and fans, and was responsible for bringing Slayer to the attention of a mainstream metal audience. Kerrang! magazine described the record as “the heaviest album of all time”, and a breakthrough in thrash metal and Speed metal. According to All Music Guide, this album has influenced the death metal genre.
