Slayer is a thrash metal band from US, formed in 1981. The band was founded by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King. The band was credited as one of the "Big Four" thrash metal bands, along with Metallica, Anthrax, and Megadeth.

Slayer's musical traits involve fast tremolo picking, guitar solos, double bass drumming, and shouting vocals. The band's lyrics and album art, which cover topics such as death, deviants, suicidal, genocide, necrophilia, insanity, Nazism, religion, Satanism, serial killers, and warfare have generated album bans, delays, lawsuits and strong criticism from religious groups and the general public. Slayer is best known for speaking through perspective without being necessarily sympathetic to the cause of their inspiration.

Since their debut record in 1983, the band has released two live albums, one cover album, one box set, three DVDs, one VHS, two EPs, and nine studio albums, four of which have received gold

SLAYER Reviews

SLAYER South of Heaven

Album · 1988 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
voila_la_scorie
It was 1984, I believe, when I first heard Slayer. "Haunting the Chapel". I was into Venom and then this whole thrash scene came along and Slayer was just the right blend of thrash with lyrics about Hell and Satan. Thirteen years old and this sounded awesome. "Hell Awaits" was perhaps even better!

I totally missed "Reign in Blood". Yeah, I know!

When "South of Heaven" came out, I bought it right away. But something had changed. Not the band so much. It was me. I just couldn't get into the music except for "Mandatory Suicide". A couple of years later, I sold all my "Satan! Satan!" music cassettes to a girlfriend's older brother.

And now I am back here in 2016, and though "Reign in Blood" made it into my CD collection last year and was quietly left aside after a listen or two, I am perhaps at last back to being interested in Slayer. Ready for Slayer! So I ordered "South of Heaven" on CD.

And I think I finally get the band, or at least get them as they were during their classic run. It strikes me that Slayer need to be heard as Slayer. Not mixed with lots of other stuff. Put on an album. Put on a mixed playlist of Slayer songs. But Slayer are an original band that created their own kind of work space. Tom Araya doesn't even try to sing (unlike Hetfield and Mustaine who actually can and have). He's fine to just bark a string of words like he's trying to give instructions over a jet plane's turbine engines, managing a sudden high scream that is always in the same note but sounds just awesome. I like Tom Araya and I like his vocal style. Many of the guitar riffs are just blistering through but there are plenty of mid-tempo (or at least not supersonic tempo) riffs that allow you to check out the view for a moment or two. Guitar solos shred and wail like an attack. Forget the subtleties of phrasing and smooth style. Slowhand is a nickname not ever given to anyone in Slayer. Guitarists Hanneman and King attack the strings with a force equivalent to trying to torture the instrument and remove its soul with their fingers. And Dave Lombardo seems to do on the drums what other drummers routinely do except that he does it so quickly, you would miss it if your ears could blink. "Was that a drum fill?" "Not sure. It sounded like something falling down the stairs in 4x speed."

Okay, so I've described Slayer's sound as I perceive it. Then what about this album? Well, it's not "Hell Awaits" and it's not "Reign in Blood" but it is still a Slayer album and you can be sure that all the reasons to love the band are here and present. I think that they have tried not to careen through the songs like they did on much of "Reign in Blood" and instead they do take a little more time to craft the music. A little. Like 30 seconds to a minute more per song. For me, it makes the album more interesting though as I can appreciate what is being played more when the tempo is a tad slower. Tom Araya seems to attempt shouting less and singing a bit more though not with the actual singer's ability that Hetfield and Mustaine possess. As I understand it, the band intentionally tried to do something different after the speed burner "Reign in Blood".

Two songs to point out: Slayer's cover of Judas Priest's "Dissident Aggressor", which they cover very well by playing it with Slayer's strengths and knowing when to veer away from trying to copy the song as accurately as possible. The other song is my old favourite "Mandatory Suicide". Now as it so happens, I recently listened to one of my favourite Metallica songs, "For Whom the Bell Tolls". You know where this is going, right?

"Mandatory Suicide" has an intro that seems remarkably as though it was based on the Metallica song. It's faster, higher toned, and more raw than Metallica's bomb-you-out-of-the-water, heavier-than-thou approach. But the intro is really similar. Both songs begin with power chord hits that are followed by a lead instrument melody. Metallica does it with bass, Slayer with guitar, though he melodies are different from one another. After the first four repetitions, the drums go into a regular beat for four repetitions, and then the lead melody is dropped but the power chords and drums continue (in the Metallica song the bass then plays the upcoming guitar riff) for four repetitions. And then both songs deliver an ominous, muted guitar riff that I have always considered (considered of "For Whom the Bell Tolls") as one of the coolest riffs in metal. After this though, the songs diverge. Metallica take a little more time to get to the lyrics and they never repeat that awesome riff. Slayer launch quickly into the lyrics and the riff resurfaces more than once. Both songs are also about war, though the Slayer version is probably lyrically closer to Metallica's "Disposable Heroes".

Curious, I searched the Net a bit but mostly just found squabbles about which band has the better song, the opinions being very subjective. I only found a Danish site where someone pointed out the similarities without any opinion for or against. Does anyone know why the Slayer song resembles the Metallica song? Was it intentional? A statement? A coincidence? Cryptomnesia?

So, in conclusion, I think this is a great album to follow "Reign in Blood" and now I have to order "Seasons in the Abyss" as well to get the trilogy. Slayer are Slayer. They do that extremely well.

Slayer - Divine Intervention

'Divine Intervention' is the sixth studio album from thrash metal band Slayer. By 1994, Grunge had taken over and Korn was releasing their debut album and both would leave an impact on the metal scene. As far as the thrash world goes, many thrash bands were switching to a groove sound like Anthrax, Overkill, Voivod, Forbidden, among others. However, among all this going on, Slayer continued on with their own sound with what I believe to be a highly underrated album in their discography.

Instead of making a drastic change, Slayer made what feels like a natural progression from 'Seasons of the Abyss'. The album opens up with the chaotic 'Killing Fields', with the combination of Paul Bostaph's barrage of double-bass drumming and the dark descending guitar that sound like it's announcing the coming of an apocalypse. The song shows a nice speed progression, beginning with a slower paced start before gradually getting much faster. After that, rolling drums and dark dwindling guitar immediately open up 'Sex. Murder. Art.', which is very short yet packing as much punch as the very short songs on 'Reign in Blood'. The third song, 'Fictional Reality' is probably my favorite from the album, and I find it impossible to not headbang and follow along to the lyrics of "Treachery, misery, violence, insanity. Scavengers closing in, Covering the truth again. Castrate society, Fictional reality". It's simply an incredibly addicting song.

While the aforementioned songs may sound like standard Slayer fare, they do mix some new additions into the sound. One of the songs that stands out the most is 'Serenity in Murder' which has Araya singing melodically at times, and actually somewhat reminds me of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.

The main criticism about the album seems to be with the production, which I've honestly never had a problem with. It's a very organic yet raw sounding production, and I actually really like the sort of muffled tone. I think it really increases the effect.

Overall, I honestly find this album to be on par with Slayer's masterpiece trilogy 'Reign in Blood', 'South of Heaven', and 'Seasons in the Abyss'. In a year where many bands were changing their sound to fit the era, Slayer stayed true to their own sound while adding a bit of variation. Hope you found this review helpful.

SLAYER Repentless

"Repentless" is the 12th full-length studio album by US thrash metal act Slayer. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in September 2015. It´s been quite a few years since the release of "World Painted Blood (2009)", but in addition to a lot of touring, there have been a couple of rather major lineup changes since that release. Drummer Dave Lombardo was fired in 2013 after a contract dispute with the other members of the band and has been replaced by a returning Paul Bostaph, who hasn´t appeared on a Slayer release since "God Hates Us All (2001)". But maybe a bit more serious guitarist and founding member Jeff Hanneman passed away in 2013. He had been struggling with his health after contracting necrotizing fasciitis as a result of a spider bite in 2011, but it was eventually liver failure as a consequence of his alcohol abuse which killed him. Gary Holt (Exodus) who has functioned as live guitarist for Slayer since 2011, when Hanneman became unable to perform, plays some guitar solos on "Repentless", but is not credited as a permanent member of the lineup.

Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King typically shared the main songwriting credits on most preceeding releases by Slayer (with Tom Araya and Paul Bostaph (only once) contributing too), so with one part of the main songwriting team gone (and the original drummer gone again too), a lot of fans have questioned if Slayer would still sound like Slayer. The material on "Repentless" however more than proves that Slayer is still undeniably Slayer. King has written quite a lot of the band´s post 2000 material anyway, so it´s not like the sound on "Repentless" is that different from the last couple of releases. So there are a lot of pretty straight forward and very aggressive fast tracks featured on the album, but also quite a few heavier tracks, and King has actually managed to put a great deal of variation into his songwriting (even a couple of acoustic sections), which ultimately makes "Repentless" an album with a good flow that is also stylistically consistent. Highlights include the title track, "Take Control", "Vices", "When the Stillness Comes", and "Atrocity Vendor", but there´s nothing sub par on the album, and the compositional quality is high throughout.

One place where the variation could have been greater is in the lyric department, because that´s where King is a bit limited. His lyrics are angry and often deal with violence or threats of violence (or relatively shallow political/social comments), using swear words to emphasize aggression, and it quite frankly becomes a bit tiresome after a while. It was alright when it was just a couple of tracks on each album which dealt with those subjects in that fashion, as the rest of the lyrics dealing with other things balanced them out, but a whole album with lyrics only written by King is a bit hard on the ears. He is just a bit too butch for his own good...

When that is said "Repentless" is still a quality release in all other departments (and I probably exaggerated the issue with the lyrics a bit). The songwriting is generally on a high level, the musicianship is strong as ever, and the sound production is professional, heavy, and raw. "Repentless" is probably the most meaty and heavy sounding album yet released by Slayer. So upon conclusion this is another strong album release by Slayer, which shows that the decision to soldier on after Hanneman´s death was the right one seen from an artistic point of view. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

SLAYER Haunting the Chapel

Slayer - Haunting the Chapel

'Haunting the Chapel' is the first EP and overall second release by thrash metal legends, Slayer. There are a lot of good EP's around, but it's rare that an EP is perfect and stands on its own the same way an album does. It gives you an adrenaline boost with three (four on the reissue that I have) high energy thrashers that are among the best in Slayer's catalog in my book.

It begins with the classic 'Chemical Warfare', with fast yet menacing riffing and Tom Araya's signature aggressive vocals with the occasional maniacal laugh. Of course, you also have blistering solos that Slayer wouldn't be Slayer without. It's six minutes long, which is actually pretty long for a Slayer song, but it certainly doesn't feel that long. 'Captor of Sin' has some killer riffs that show signs of things to come in later albums. This is a little thing, but hearing the vocals under the end of the solo sounds pretty awesome. My favorite has to be the title track though, with Araya's vocals complimenting the relentless riffs. Listening to it, it sounds made for a mosh-pit, just as much as mosh-anthems like Anthrax's 'Caught in a Mosh' and Nervosa's 'Into Moshpit'. If you get the reissue, you get the song 'Aggressive Perfector', which sounds more in line with Slayer's debut then the rest of the album as it's a bit more of a speed metal-based thrash. However, it definitely isn't lacking in fantastic guitar and soloing.

The production for this EP couldn't be better. It's raw, gritty, and powerful, which is perfect for an aggressive thrash EP.

Overall, 'Haunting the Chapel' is a perfect transition between the debut and 'Hell Awaits' which would get them closer to their signature sound. It's not often when I'd call an EP essential, but I never tire of this short twenty-minutes of thrashing mastery. I'd go so far to say it's a desert island album for me. Yeah, it's that good. Hope you found this review helpful.

SLAYER Repentless

In some ways Repentless may be the most important album Slayer have ever made. Not only have they lost their drummer Dave Lombardo (again) but it’s also their first since the shocking death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman who wrote much of the bands most celebrated material. Fortunately past drummer, the excellent Paul Bostaph has returned and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt, who’s been helping them out with live shows even before Hanneman’s death when he was in poor health is a more than able substitute. Both are on brilliant form here.

It’s good news, not only have they proved that there’s life for the band without Hanneman, they’ve actually released their best album since...ooh….probably Seasons In The Abyss. World Painted Blood was good, the title track stunning, but was marred by a thin and harsh sounding production. Repentless sounds meatier – could this be anything to do with this being the first Slayer album I’ve bought on vinyl since South Of Heaven? Probably not but I think Slayer’s sound does benefit from the warmth of vinyl. Most importantly though it’s the songs that matter and they’ve come up with some killers and overall consistency too. After short opening instrumental Delusions of Saviour the ferocious title track kicks in and is powerful statement of intent driving along at breakneck speed with Kerry King and Holt riffing like their life depended on it and vocalist/bassist Tom Araya on fine form. The pace continues on Take Control, at least in part but this album’s not all about speed. They’re never going to top Reign In Blood for sheer speed and ferocity but they grind and groove with some truly memorable and great riffs, none better than the broodingly dark Cast The First Stone.

The first half is a bit more memorable than the second but only just, there’s still much to offer like the driving Chasing Death and Piano Wire’s riff after a few plays reveals itself to be one of the most infectious riffs on the album.

Slayer no doubt felt they had much to prove with Repentless but such is the quality of this album that even their harshest critics must be silenced. They’ve exceeded expectations and if there’s a better thrash metal album released this year I’ll be amazed. We couldn’t have hoped for more than this.
