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 Implode

Single · 2014 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Implode" is a one-track digital single by US thrash metal act Slayer. The single can be downloaded for free on the band´s official homepage. It was released in April 2014. "Implode" is the first new original studio material recorded by Slayer since the recording sessions for "World Painted Blood (2009)". The long recording break was however due to lot of different issues, including the long disease course and untimely death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the dismissal of drummer Dave Lombardo. The latter has been replaced by a returning Paul Bostaph. While Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has toured with Slayer as a replacement for Jeff Hanneman, he is not part of the recording lineup on this single, which was recorded as a three-piece with Kerry King handling all guitars.

Stylistically there are very few surprises when listening to "Implode". This is classic post "Seasons in the Abyss (1990)"-era Slayer. Harsh, aggressive, and a band that´s as tight playing as ever. The return of Paul Bostaph provides the music with a less organic sound than the drumming that Dave Lombardo brought to the table did, but he is a skilled player and his drumming style arguably suits the music well. "Implode" is a relatively varied track with both heavy grooves and more standard fast paced thrashy sections. It´s a good quality track, but to my ears pretty standard for Slayer and definitely not anything out of the ordinary.

The sound production is also pretty standard for Slayer, even though the return of Paul Bostaph also has impact on how the drums are produced.

Upon conclusion "Implode" is a good quality track by Slayer, but it´s not a track that stands out in their discography and it doesn´t exactly make my blood boil or raise my expectations to how a new full-length release will sound. It´s simply what I expected and nothing more. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

SLAYER Hell Awaits

Album · 1985 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Hell Awaits" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US thrash metal act Slayer. The album was released through Metal Blade Records in September 1985. Already with their debut album "Show No Mercy (1983)", Slayer had established themselves as one of the leading US thrash metal acts in those formative years of the genre, and with "Hell Awaits" they further strengthened that position.

While "Show No Mercy (1983)" featured more than a few nods toward NWoBHM, "Hell Awaits" takes Slayer´s music completely into raw and aggressive thrash metal darkness, with fast drumming, fast thrashy riffing and screaming atonal soloing and Tom Araya´s distinct aggressive vocals in front. The blasphemous lyrical themes that were introduced on the debut are further explored here in especially the title track, but also a lyrical theme like necrophilia is explored in a track like "Necrophiliac". Tracks like the two mentioned and "Kill Again" are the highlights on the album, and while the remaining four tracks are great material too, they don´t stick as well as the first three mentioned do. A couple of the tracks are also slightly too long. It´s like the entertainment value decreases and my attention wanders after the four minute mark in tracks like "Praise of Death", "At Dawn They Sleep" and "Crypts of Eternity".

The musicianship are as always solid, when talking about Slayer, so it´s the fact, that the songwriting´s still slightly imature and the sound production isn´t that powerful or well sounding either, that bring my rating down to a 3.5 star (70%) rating. That´s actually a very high rating considering the amount of negative criticism I just gave "Hell Awaits", but the rating is a testament to how great Slayer are, even when they release something a bit sub par to their best output.

Out of the big 4, SLAYER was always the one I liked the least. Not because of their intensity or taking aggression to the next level. Far from it. The weakness I have always found in them is in the songwriting department. But not on this release. This is the release where aggression and innovation cross paths producing one of the all time classics.

I gave this album a break for a few years and just got the remastered version and have been blown away like it never did upon first listen. Rick Rubin produced this album and surely made it even better than it would have been otherwise.

Although I didn't like this as much in the beginning because it doesn't sound like Metallica, Megadeth or Anthrax, i let go of all that! It's a masterpiece on its own terms! For this shining moment in their discography, SLAYER hit a home run. This didn't do it for me upon first encounter but after listening to it now – WOW!

SLAYER Haunting the Chapel

EP · 1984 · Thrash Metal

"Haunting the Chapel" is an EP release by US thrash metal act Slayer that bridges the gap between their debut full-length studio album "Show No Mercy (1983)" and their second full-length studio album "Hell Awaits (1985" along with "Live Undead (1984)" which was released in November 1984. "Haunting the Chapel" was released through Metal Blade Records in August 1984.

Musically the 3 tracks on the 13:26 minutes long EP are closer in style to the NWoBHM influenced "Show No Mercy (1983)" than they are to the darker and more aggressive style on "Hell Awaits (1985)". That´s especially true for "Captor of Sin", while both "Chemical Warfare" and "Haunting the Chapel" are transitional in nature and feature a darker sound than the debut album. Later CD reissues includes the bonus track "Aggressive Perfector", which had been previously released on the "Metal Massacre 3" compilation. It therefore features a different sound production than the original tracks on the EP. Speaking of sound production, "Haunting the Chapel" features a raw, organic, detailed and powerful sound production. Considering that we´re talking 1984, this is a quality production.

"Haunting the Chapel" is a strong EP release by Slayer. Great musicianship, strong compositions ("Chemical Warfare" can rightfully be called a Slayer "classic") and a powerful sound production. This is early Slayer when they are best and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

SLAYER World Painted Blood

World Painted Blood sees Slayer consolidating the impressive musical gains made on Christ Illusion, with the reformed classic lineup that made that album such a success going from strength to strength. Finally balancing their classic thrash approach with the angry punk influences which have often bubbled under the surface in their music, the band produce an album which might not redefine the rules of thrash metal in the same way their absolute best releases did, but at the very least keeps the thrash flame alive and will appeal to any fan of their classic run of albums from their debut to Seasons In the Abyss.
