Slayer – Christ Illusion Review – Last Rites

Brendan Kyle’s take: Let’s be honest here: Slayer hasn’t had a truly classic album since South of Heaven way back in 1988. That’s not to say they haven’t written some [...] deciding how many degrees off from their past masterpieces it is. If your favorite aspects of Slayer’s songwriting are the same as mine, it turns out to be quite a few. Of course there [...] songwriting approach remains the same, fast and furious thrash with a hardcore vibe, but for various reasons Slayer has failed to create more than a handful of strong songs in the five years between albums [...]

love Slayer, probably more than you. In my opinion Slayer is one of the top five metal bands the world has ever known, and the band’s first four albums are some of the best [...] ever made. If you think differently, thanks for reading and all, but go fuck yourself. I revere Slayer so much that I get pissed when other people talk shit about them. If I were going [...] fight someone over a band, it would be Slayer. That’s probably not a reasonable or mature attitude for a forty-year-old man, but I guess that’s why the term is “fanboy.” Despite [...]

One thing is for sure: everybody has some sort [...] There are various arguments flying around concerning the quality of this album. Some people say that Slayer hung out with the nu-metal crowd too much, others that they aren't fast anymore... But come [...] guys, they are still Slayer!!!!! This album still rocks more than most other albums of 2001, even if it isn't the best Slayer album ever! The music here contains everything a Slayer fan would [...]

reading this site, then I’m sure you’re aware that Slayer has been through a couple of changes in recent years. At the moment, only vocalist/bassist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King remain from [...] Jeff Hanneman gone and Araya being a non-songwriter by his own admission, the burden of writing Slayer‘s first album in six years falls solely on King’s shoulders. After a short suspense-building [...] album kicks off properly with the title track, “Repentless.” This one contains most pieces of the Slayer puzzle, lyrics aside (more on that later). It’s fast and to the point. The riffs and solos [...]

SLAYER's new album, "Repentless", the band's 12th, debuted at Number Four on The Billboard 200 chart. Yes, that actually happened. While this kind of pop cultural seal of approval is essentially meaningless [...] world of metal, it really is about time, and considering SLAYER's long-standing contribution in making metal an ever-present bloodstain upon the global musical landscape, it's well deserved. The release has also [...] most likely be backed by the haunting, moon-worshiping sounds of "Show No Mercy" or "Hell Awaits", or the belligerence of "Reign in Blood" or "Divine Intervention". SLAYER has nothing to repent for, and they [...]

Slayer - Undisputed Attitude

Slayer went Hardcore Punk for this stopgap release, out in 1996 right between 1994’s Divine Intervention and 1998’s Diabolus In Musica. Originally it was intended to be a tribute to their Metal influences [...] Purple, the band decided to cover their Punk influences. Being fair, it’s hard to see how Slayer could have adequately covered Purple in their 90s incarnation – the musical debt from Priest especially is obvious [...] back to the beginning of Slayer’s career, but the new groove elements meant that the rejected option would probably have been a trainwreck. As it is, Undisputed Attitude is an interesting fan relic [...]

here, and the occasion is momentous. Been this way since Slayer released Show No Mercy in 1983, the band’s catalogue second to none, easily the most consistent in heavy metal. But it’s with [...] call of duty with a deep repertoire of razor-sharp leads and intense rifferama. Alas, this is Slayer and we wouldn’t expect anything less! And as a major Metal Church, Overkill and Pantera [...] song ends in patented melancholic Slayer guitar, as Hanneman’s spirit haunts freely from the chapel. And so ends a killer Slayer record, one that sits proudly on the metal mantle beside the band [...]

Slayer, the last few years have been anything but bright. The tragic loss of Jeff Hanneman in 2013 saddened many who saw him as the reliable bedrock on which Slayer's dark church was built [...] Gary Holt and the returning Paul Bostaph may be decent replacements but they can never truly be Slayer in the way that the classic four members could be. So it's hard to approach Repentless [...] interviews with Araya where he sounds every one of his fifty-four years and hints essentially that Slayer only release new albums to tour on. It's sad, partly because Araya has always seemed [...]

long wait for a new Slayer album is finally over! "Christ Illusion", one of the most highly anticipated metal releases of 2006, is here! It's been almost five years since Slayer's last studio [...] album, "God Hates Us All". One of the big questions many Slayer fans have been asking themselves is whether or not they would get another album in the vein of "God Hates [...] result is "Christ Illusion". After listening to "Christ Illusion" several times, I feel that many Slayer fans will have mixed reactions. "Christ Illusion" marks the welcomed return of original Slayer skin basher Dave Lombardo [...]
