The undisputed kings of thrash, acknowledged as a seminal influence on the death metal genre, return with their ninth studio album and first for Warner Bros. Slayer have always been unfailingly controversial and this follow-up to 2001's 'God Hates Us All' is no different - a blistering polemic against organized religion and the part it plays in all the world's ills, especially war. Produced by Josh Abraham (Soulfly, Limp Bizkit), it sees the band's original lineup reunited for the first time in 16 years.

1. Flesh Storm
2. Catalyst
3. Skeleton Christ

Great band. Saw them at Briton a few year back.
#2
hmmpf dunno any of those songs - they are quite variable even in their narrow 'genre'.
any similar songs to:
bloodline
dead skin mask
here comes the pain?

raining blood and angel of death guess the main songs by them and i guess they are not bad but i prefer those ones.

its no south of heaven.

Which in turn was lambasted after not being as fast as Reign in Blood ... any Slayer CD for under a £5 is worth it for a thrash / death metal fan.

Saw them on the SOH tour in (I think) '87 at Rock City in Notts and they awesome. Never been so hyped when coming out of a gig.

[Expletive Deleted] Slayer!

You should try buying an album or two. Sounds like you've got a collection of random mp3s you nicked.

This record is awesome. Classic Slayer, they haven't slowed down a bit.

Completely and utterly wrong mate. The 2 bands are incomparable. Metallica as much as I like them are now a soft/hard rock act. Given that Metallicas main hit/song writing influence was Dave Mustaine is often overlooked by most people!

Slayer are a thrash band, they don't write country rock songs or anything similar, they are hardcore influenced thrash metal. Listen to Undisputed Attitude and you'll get an idea what they're about.

To compare the 2 is like comparing Britney to 4 Non Blondes!
#12
All the songs sound the same apart from 2 i.e play as fast as you can sing the same vocally - as much as I like metal, Slayer have not evolved and hide behind speed for their lack of ideas, but heat for the price for sure

Had a listen and not impressed.

I wonder if this band are popular because they hate Christians and say so.

I wonder if a band that hated gays would be as popular if they made thrash metal songs about hating gays.

I suspect a band that hated Muslims and wrote songs decrying Islam would be immediately censored and or killed...

So what, exactly, is it about this run of the mill noize that makes people think they're so great?

Do a bit of research before steamrollering your opinions on us dude. The singer/bass player, Tom Araya, is a practising Christian . He and the rest of the band have described themselves as the musical equivalent of a horror film.

Chill, it's just entertainment.
#16
I didn't 'steamroller' anything...

Don't get into the habit of describing an opinion that you don't agree with as if it were a totalitarian demand.

As for your justification, does it make the slightest difference? For me, it makes it all the more sad that someone would say 'I'm a practicing such and such but when I'm being paid enough money to make me rich, I'll say anything you like to offend people just like me.'

It doesn't make Araya right, it just makes him a sell out or an unconvincing liar.

Besides, if someone calls themself 'Muslim' but doesn't confirm to the tenets of Islam, we're quick to point out that they're not viable representatives of Islam, right? We don't like people being misrepresentative in this politically correct world...

So I think you'll find if you do some research outside of Wikipedia, that what Araya SAYS he believes which he thinks defines him as 'Christian', isn't remotely 'Christian' at all, and that he is merely, by tradition, Roman Catholic, and equally does not believe a whole number of things that define Roman Catholicism.

So it seems that he believes whatever he wants, uses labels inaccurately to try to avoid getting flack for being in one of the most notoriously anti-Christian, morally dubious and lyrically offensive bands celebrating all manner of manifestations of evil.

And you could forget all that, perhaps, if they weren't rehashing the same sonically offensive noize, calling it music, and trying to be as offensive as they can so as to stay in the running with a bunch more talentless noizemakers who have nothing to sell but how 'evil' they can make themselves look.

If I could produce a Jewish orthodox band who could make the same noize, and sang songs about Hashem and about their political and religious views, would they get the same following? Or do people follow Slayer because they're evil, and evil is cool?

That was the question...
#17
Anyway, deal voted hot if you're a Slayer fan and need to express the evilness of the music that only Slayer can capture.

Voted cold if you're a music fan who happens to like that kind of noize, because you can actually record your own version of someone vomiting into a tin can while a few shelves full of spanners are tipped on to the floor in the background, and save a load of money doing it.

As the dude said earlier, Metallica make music.
#18
So if an actor, say Sam Neill plays the role of the Anti-Christ as he did in The Omen 3, does that make him anti christian or a Satanist? After all the film probably offended someone somewhere. It's all a matter of taste dude, i liked Slayer when i was younger but my tastes have matured.

Besides, if someone calls themself 'Muslim' but doesn't confirm to the tenets of Islam, we're quick to point out that they're not viable representatives of Islam, right? We don't like people being misrepresentative in this politically correct world...


And who are you to say what is Christian, Muslim or anything else?

Faith is a personal choice is it not? It comes from the heart. I'm an Atheist, does that mean i should agree with every other Atheist on every point of being a non believer? I still believe in compassion,love and respect for others i just don't believe in the supernatural.

Oh, and i justified nothing.

Peace out.
#19
I think we should give some credit to Slayer fans too, they're not that daft and doubt they'll be burning any churches in the near future.

No need for the Wikipedia put down either dude. Bit nasty that.
#20
I'm a huge Slayer fan but this is not their best album by any means and i probably wouldnt recommend it as an introduction to anyone unfamiliar with Slayer. South of Heaven and Reign in Blood are the best of the early stuff and most recently God Hates Us All was ****ing awesome - a relentless barrage of pure aggression and nihilism - just the way i like it :-D -
Christ Illusion is still worth checking out at this price.

SSSLLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


I'm 42, going grey, broken knees, overweight & going deaf but put me in a mosh pit in front of Slayer playing South of Heaven, Dead Skin Mask, War Ensemble, Hell Awaits, Seasons in the Abyss and the ubiquitous Angel of Death & Reign In Blood ... and watch me become a teenager going absolutley [expleteive deleted] mental with 100's of others.

What makes Slayer great?
Why do people admire paintings by Constable, Dali or Da Vinci?
Why do some religiously watch (and then talk about it ad infinitum) reality TV?

I don't know the answers to the last 2 but Slayer? Their music has been part of my life for more than 20 years and always makes me feel alive!

"And who are you to say what is Christian, Muslim or anything else? "

Erm... it would seem to be fairly obvious that someone who says 'I'm a Christian' who then goes on to sing or play songs which, lyrically, can be summarised as '**** Christ and the world would be a better place without Christians' is either (a) schizophrenic, (b) a liar, (c) entirely insane and completely deluded or (d) a sell out for one reason or another.

Call it traditionalist, but I always assumed that if you said 'I'm a vegetarian and I love eating meat' that the part of your life which is diametrically opposed to the philosophy you claim to live by would preclude any reasonable person taking your word for what you choose to identify yourself as.

It would be kind of like saying 'I'm a pacifist... now... who can I kill?'

Equally, if someone said 'I'm a Muslim' and then said 'but I don't believe that there is one personal God called Allah, and I don't believe Mohammed was his divine prophet, and I don't believe what the Quran says, but it all a nice set of ideals' I think Muslims would be justified in saying 'phony!' and the rest of the world would be justified in saying 'what an idiot.' Its kind of a contradiction in terms, like saying 'I'm a libertarian but I don't believe in personal freedom.' Or, closer to home, 'I'm a Slayer fan, but I've never seen them play, haven't heard their songs, and don't know a single thing about them...'

It's no great mystery. I can't comprehend the mindless arrogance which assumes that we subjectively define everything by our imagination, rather than accepting that there are a few absolutes in life, and when we try to relativise them, we just end up looking stoopid.

Anyway... on with the show.

Slayer still suck big time. They can be as anti-Christian and anti-establishment as they like... just another bunch of ageing noisemakers who have become the epitome of the system of privilege and exploitation that they once claimed to abhor.

Now... back to Metallica.
#23
SampleX, everyone entitled to their own opinion, but you've just spouted a load of bull! Have you actually ever listened to the intricasy of how Slayer have melded their music together. Wandering solos, drum beats that aren't your standard...shock horror 4:4! Oh but their "noize" as you put it isn't acceptable to your ears as your a Metallica fan, who seem to just use the same minor blues scales over and over again!

Dave Lombardos drumming is almost second to none, his timing is perfect, but I suppose you'll be telling me that Lars is a better drummer because he makes "music" as you put it...oh and he sold more records!

May I suggest you take all of your early Metallica albums and throw them out as they must be "Noize" too. A whole scene grew out of the Bay area! Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Testament etc etc too many to mention, all had different styles and ALL site each other as influences! So still it's just "Noize" to you eh!

Give me Deaths Head over Unforgiven anyday! If I wanted a ballad I would buy Enyas album!

How much influence did Mustaine have on Puppets and Justice, two of their best albums (imho...)? He probably only helped with Kill and a few songs on Ride - Metallica went huge after Puppets.

And I'd be inclined to disagree further, based on the fact that most of megadeths albums are, well, a bit crap really.

Don't get me wrong I like Slayer - a lot - but in my eyes, there will only ever be one true great....the one and only Metallica.

And as for the title post '...The undisputed kings of thrash....' clearly thats wrong as the last two pages dictate!! ;)
#25
"Why do people admire paintings by Constable, Dali or Da Vinci? "

Usually because they're pretentious dingbats who've heard 'aficionados' fawning over their paintings, and out of a desire to look cool, cultured and be part of a crowd of people who are noted for their common appreciation of something 'fine', they feign the pretence of actually liking what amounts to inconsequential and hugely over-rated trivia.

I'm presuming that Constable, Dali and DaVinci weren't nazism obsessed, occult fixated, serial killer reverencing doom merchant fatalists who fill kids heads with violence and depravity and then claim there's no connection when the youth contingent act out their lyrics while listening to their music.

I know those paintings have motivated a few attempted robberies, but I'm not sure that they've motivated any murders and/or satanic rituals, although I could be wrong.

As for the deal, well, like I said, if you're a devoted fan of dark, nazi-fixated, serial killer, anti-Christian noise, then you've probably got thirteen copies of this and you're already playing them backward to see what messages you can get.

If you like real music, however, Metallica CD's don't tend to be crashed this low in price, because they don't have a problem selling them, but even at four times the price, its good value for money cos, well, its good music.

Some lyrics from Metallicas last album! Ageing, "Noize makers" anti-establishment, bleak the list goes on!
This is just 1 song! What a flawed fanboy argument!:roll:

Claustrophobic
Crawl out of this skin
Hard explosive
Reaching for that pin

Feel thy name extermination
Desecrating, hail of fire

So we cross that line
Into the crypt
Total eclipse
Suffer unto my apocalypse!

Deadly vision
Prophecy revealed
Death magnetic
Pulling closer still

Feel thy name annihilation
Desolating, hail of fire

So we cross that line
Into the crypt
Total eclipse
Suffer unto my apocalypse!

My apocalypse� Go!

Crushing metal, ripping skin
Tossing body mannequin
Spilling blood, bleeding gas

Mangle flesh, snapping spine
Dripping bloody valentine
Shattered face, spitting glass

Split apart
Split apart
Split apart
Split
Spit it out!

What makes me drift a litter bit closer
Dead man takes the steering wheel
What makes me know it�s time to cross over
Words you repeat until I feel

See through the skin the bones they all rattle
Future and past they disagree
Flesh falls away the bones they all shatter
I start to see the end in me
See the end in me�

Claustrophobic
Climb out of this skin
Hard explosive
Waiting for that pin

Violate, annihilate
A loser to my eyes
Obliterate, exterminate
At last accept, deny

Feel thy name as hell awakens
Destiny, inhale the fire

But we cross that line
Into the crypt
Total eclipse
Suffer unto my apocalypse!

Tyrants awaken my apocalypse!
Demon awaken my apocalypse!
Heaven awaken my apocalypse!
Suffer forever my apocalypse!

The more crap you spout, the more bitter you sound, I'm sensing some deep shame driven behavioural charachteristics here! Did Tom Araya not let you in his gang at school? Did he pull your pants down in front of the girls???

I used to be a big Slayer fan and went to see them on a few occasions - they were fantastic. Then I became a born-again Christian when I was 19. I thought I would remain a Slayer fan afterwards, but when I really sat and listened to what they were saying, I was a bit shocked that I hadn't really picked up on some of their lyrics before. The fact that Araya says he is a Christian is such a joke. I can fully understand that most of you will disagree with me, but Satan is having such a laugh at people who think this stuff is cool. If they were spouting Christian lyrics, I would be told it is brainwashing. If they spout Satanic lyrics, is that being open minded?

Philh777 - You need to listen to some Stryper mate!

"To Hell With the Devil!"

Me, It's South of Heaven all the way .... as I'm on AC/DC's Highway to Hell - which is what I want to be played as I am cremated. After all, as the great Mr Ian Gillan wrote, there's "No Laughing In Heaven".
#37
Q-Tec, I used to think very similarly a few years ago. However, I believe hell is a real place prepared for the devil and his angels. Jesus Christ (and not the devil) will reign over hell, which is described in the Bible as a hot dark place where people will be punished according to the amount of sin they committed during their life, and it is eternal - certainly not something I will ever joke about again. BTW, I still like AC/DC

Which I think is exactly what I posted...

If the noize they make is 'neutral', and ANY band could produce it, how come Christian thrash metal bands don't sell as many records, it certainly isn't because it requires massive talent to make the noize.

As I said, I think its because its cool to bash Christians and shout profanities at a God whose followers are a little bit less inclined to behead you and kill your family for doing so.

I really do wish that instead of writing songs in which a band like Slayer depicts terrorism 'from the perspective' of the religious terrorist, they did the bold brave thing, instead of going after soft targets, and went after a culture which isn't just going to remove them from the record shops or the advertising billboards, but which would like to remove them from living on the planet at all...

That would be much braver.

The funny thing is the dude just a few posts back ridiculing my opinion on this subject as being something to do with 'not being allowed to join the club', and yet he's listening to a band that just haven't gotten over the fact that mummy and daddy made them go to sunday school, or some preacher dared to call them a sinner.

You'd think that the mature position would be to just say 'oh well... I don't do religion' and leave it at that. But to hammer on, and on, and on against soft targets trying to be as religiously offensive as you can, and then hide behind the 'our bass player says he's a Christian by his own definition and nearly believes in what Jesus represented' is, frankly, infantile.

At least you can actually hear some real meaning and some real intelligent statements in Metallica tracks, and the religious antagonism does, at least, have some context in the band, so that it isn't just a rant against Christians, but rather a specific statement about a specific event.
