    it is a true return to form for slayer. they havent made a decent record since dave lombardos exit back when the released seasons in the abyss. this is still hard to listen to. reign in blood is where its at.

    For Slayer it's terrible! There's none of thier classic demonic riffing like in reign in blood or show no mercy. Kerry King can NOT sing either, Tom's not the lead singer anymore. Slayers made a change for the worse in this album.

    Well, this album doesn't deserve that score. Songs does not have that unique Slayer atmosphere in my opinion, it sounds so generic. Riffs are not enough fast, wicked and complex. They all sound same and all of them are repetitive. Tom is just yelling, it's not his style. I can't hear "real Tom" in this album. I just can't hear the brutality. Solos suck as usual.

  1. God Hates Us All is Slayer's most brutal record since 1986's immortal (or undead) Reign in Blood.
  2. Slayer do what they do with impassioned authority, which is what makes an album full of vileness so compelling.
  3. Slayer remains an elemental metal band, continuing to surge on something high-grade and uncut.
