SLAYER
God Hates Us All (American)

Never known for being particularly experimental in their songwriting approach, SLAYER have occasionally attempted to expand upon their sound to mixed results—the most obvious example being the group's 1988 offering, South Of Heaven, which is still regarded highly by most SLAYER followers but is rarely thought of as one of the band's finest moments. Although none of the quartet's subsequent releases have indicated much of a desire to deviate from the formula (with 1994's Divine Intervention standing as a by-the-numbers affair that pales in comparison to its predecessors), 1998's Diabolus In Musica was at least a feeble attempt at incorporating updated elements into the group's sound, the presence of which elevated the band's efforts somewhat and offered hope that SLAYER could refrain from endlessly rehashing their previous material for their future output.

...

While God Hates Us All possesses some of the same ingredients that made Diabolus… a marginally refreshing surprise, SLAYER's latest represents yet another failure on the band's part to take the initiative and reinvent themselves—a regurgitation of the group's past songwriting efforts in the hopes of pleasing no one but their most ardent and loyal fans.

...

As was the case with the aforementioned Divine Intervention, the bulk of the songs on God Hates Us All were written by guitarist Kerry King—widely regarded as the weaker and less inventive of the two main songwriters—and as such, they tend to  follow a familiar direction that almost always sounds tired and forced—like the efforts of a band trying desperately to sound true to itself, but sadly lacking both the creativity and the inspiration to do it convincingly. However, the biggest surprise—and ultimately, disappointment—comes in the shape of the vocal performance of frontman Tom Araya. Once considered to be at the very top of his field—with the kind of vocal power and conviction most of his counterparts could only dream of—Araya has transformed into a hollow shell of his former self, boasting a singing style that is monotonous, devoid of creativity and at times virtually unlistenable.

...

Hardcore SLAYER fans and other supporters will undoubtedly make the claim that the band is merely doing what they do best, and they will point to the fact that the group is still selling out small theaters across the US as an indication of their continued success. Those of us that know better, however, will see SLAYER's rapidly diminishing record sales (Diabolus In Musica has shifted less than 300,000 copies in the US compared to Seasons In The Abyss' 600-700,000+) as a sign that the band is in dire need of a new lease on life — one that seems more and more unattainable with each successive SLAYER release—and will sadly await the day when the group's long-term career comes to a seemingly inevitable grinding halt.

What a fucking stupid review...why the fuck should Slayer "reinvent" themselves,as you put it? What do you want them to start rapping and using turntables or something? As for the record sales well,I'm sure that's the least of the bands troubles. They play the music they wanna play and thats what metal is all about...not fucking record sales man. Instead of bagging them out you should show a bit of respect for being one of the originators of thrash metal and a band that sticks by the music they play rather than selling out like Metallica.
You got no clue dude!!

Borivoj got it nailed on the head. Like many other metalheads, I was greatly anticipating this release (on 9/11 no less), hoping it would be better than their last nu-metal influenced LP Diabolus. Needless to say, I was let down once again. Sure, respect given where respects due. Slayer did make some of the greatest LPs in metal, period. Reign in Blood needs no intro, and South of Heaven still ranks as one of my personal favs, but that does not mean that we should automatically except everything to produce as godly simlpy on the merits of their past efforts. Tom Aray never sounded weaker. His 'new' style of simply yelling over the miss-match of riffs is so utterly boring, and if Jeff is the better guitar player (and in my opinion is the more interesting writer as well), than keep Kerry of the axe long enough so they can write something interesting. Damn, I wanted to love this record as much as anyone else, but just because they wrote some of the greatest metal ever, doesn't mean I'm going to accept subpar material as godly. Slayer is the epitome of metal, but every since Seasons, they've really began to suck. Here's hoping Lombardo stays long enough to restart a fire under their collective ass.

slayer won't sell out. they'll just rewrite the same songs over and over, only way out of date and not as good. "God hates us all." i used that title for my talent show metal band in seventh grade and thought i was tough. they couldn't come up with anything better than that? they died just like metallica years ago, just in a different way. much respect to the things they've done for metal, but that doesn't mean they're untouchable. just 'cause it's still heavy, don't mean it's still good.

A couple of years ago, before releasing Diabolus In Musica Slayer didn't have to prove themselfs, Hell Awaits, Reign In Blood and all the other works of art spoke for them.
But then there was the change, Diabolus In Musica was a huge let down for us the real thrash metal fans because Slayer became officially a comercial mainstreem hardcore band.
Or if you prefer Hip-Hop with guitrs.
I personally didn't expect this album to return to the old thrash days but i heart me all over again to see how the band of my life is falling apart.
Do you self a favor and to Slayer too by nou buying the shit because bad sells might convinse them that hardcore sucks!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't give up on them or 80's style thrash metal, if you want to feel again this rash of old-school heat buy the new KREATOR album VIOLENT REVOLUTION!!!! or the new Destruction album The Antichrist which is great as well.

Go and throw on a fucking Linkin Park CD and then compare their shit with Slayer. That's nu-metal not Slayer you fucking fools!!
Yoni you sound like one of those typical fucking old school metal wankers who refuses to listen to anything that came out after the 1980's. Can you explain the true metal concept to me because the way Im see it is that only 80's metal seems to be true metal in the minds of people like you!!
I dont know why y'all are bagging out GHUA. It's quite easily the best Slayer album since Reign In Blood.

God Hates Us All is a great album. Agreed that it (and furthermore, Diabolus) aren't as close to classic SLAYER albums as some of you would like, there are plenty of great thrashing songs on God Hates Us All and plenty of others that may not sound like anything off Reign In Blood but rock just the same.

But whether you like the stuff or not, you CAN'T compare anything SLAYER's EVER done to nu-metal. Or call them commercial. That's just bullshit right there.

dammit i am so tired of hearing about "selling out", "nu-metal", "true metal" how can you say what is true metal? The genre is so vast and so different then it was in the 70's and 80's that arguing over what label to put on a band is fucking lame.

If you like the way it sounds fine, if not state an intelligent answer and move on with your life.

Metallica didnt sell-out... they grew up, got bored and they are no longer pissed off about anything enough to create songs that are as driven as they once were.

At least metallica changed their music style (I dont like it) when they matured into rich musicans that dont have the same outlook on life as they once did.

Most of the bands from the days of "kill em all" and Slayer's "show no mercy" that are still together are trying too hard to keep the same sound.. and it gets old and very watered down.

If you cant open you minds enough to attemt to listen to the some of the newer bands surfacing on the scene because of the category you put them into right away then I am sorry you are so closed minded.

Drop D is not bad.
Guitar solos dont belong in EVERY "metal" song

While I'm not the biggest Slayer fan the world has ever seen, I defend their right to stick to what they wanna do. While I'm not the biggest Metallica fan in the world I still defend their right to change their musical style. The only thing I ask from the bands I listen to is that they can listen to thier albums and think that they have done the best and truest damn job possible on it. I don't like Metallica anymore for that reason. I don't think they believe in what they are putting out anymore. Slayers new album is good. Its not great. Its not the best or worst metal realease of all time but it IS NOT NU-METAL. that's not to slag out nu-metal either. I like some bands from said genre. Metal isn't about Thrash or Death or Black or Power or Industrial or Nu or Hatecore or any of that shit. Metal is about playing what you want to play and fuck what anybody else thinks. Its about being true to yourself and not going "Oh I'd better rap on this record so it sells more" and nor is it about going "I'd better scream exactly like I have for that past 5 albums so the old fans stay with us". Its about thinking about what you want to listen to, what you'd like to hear on an album, what comes from you, not from what everyone else thinks. I still think that Linkin park and Limp Bizkit are prime examples of media manipulating suckers of satans cock. Wes is much better of without LB. Opeth rule. Cradle of filth Rock. Nevermore kick ass. Fear factory are fuckin mad, AMEN are awesome. System of a down are gods, TOOL stand above most of the current shitpile of music. Led ZEPPELIN are on a plane of their own but above in the realm of metal stand those that came first BLACK SABBATH and OZZY. If you ever need to remember what metal is just listen to those muthafuckas. They will teach you why you love this music all over again. I'm outta here. Later.

2/20/2002 6:46:58 PM
This album is hardly a rehash of their older material. There's very few moments on the album that recall any of their prior work... But the statement that Kerry King needs to stop writing lyrics couldn't be more true. As far as the music goes... eh... it could be better. Some of the breakdowns are really good but the Slipknot influence is strong enough to leave a bitter aftertaste.

Tom Araya's voice is GONE... he should just give up trying. On 'Disciple' the motonous, endless ranting about how god hates me gave me a massive headache. The only song I can truly say is memorable is "God Sends Death". 6/10

... Also, where does the reviewer get off with saying Divine Intervention was a paint by numbers album? It shifted to a more complex, heavy, rhythmic style of playing and, whether you like it or not, it sure as hell sounded nothing like the 80s Slayer. In my opinion it has some great songs and should not be overlooked.

With this album Slayer have tried something new. They have put a lot more diskant in the mix and had Tom scream a lot more. I think that's cool and it sounds good. And what is the response? Negative. Slayer has changed, but they are still Slayer, and everybody's saying that they have run out of steam. I have even heard somebody say that Tom couldn't sing like he once could. That's fucking stupid! Off course he can, he can sing everyway he fucking likes. And that's the cool think about Slayer: You think to yourself, what can they change, is there to Thrash than what we have already heard? And again and again Slayer proves that there is. Slayer created Thrash, and every time they make a new album they refine it for all the Thrash metal bands out there, that all love and worship Slayer.

Im the kind of guy that is patient with new albums, this album felt like a big headache when i headr it the first time, but after 3-4 times when i remebered the songs and had them on my head i fell in love with the record, its agression, the heavy riffs, the speed. The albums that becomes great after a few listens tend to stay alive the longest, you wont get tired of it fast. There are some really good tracks on this album like Bloodline, god send death, Exile, Here comes the pain and Payback. Payback is one of the fastest track ive ever heard and Bloodline is one of the best song ive ever heard. I really hope Slayer will realease more ablums.

Wearing ADIDAS? isnt this coming from a Band who supposedly "didnt give a fuck about whats happening in music"? Why the Fucking Seven-strings? trying to fit in Maybe? And slayer is one of many Bands who Paint themeselves into Corners, causing them to sound like the Same Shit over and over again. Other Bands like ACDC and Pantera also Stick to a Single Formula, but they Produce GREAT Music every Single Time, and Slayer sure as Fuck aint ACDC. in the beggining the Anger and Aggression is Credible, but when you fucking get Rich and have Mansions and all that Shit that "anger" becomes as Fake as Slayer's Dignity. Not to Mention that all the Band Does is just Talk Shit about other Bands that "sell-out", proving how much of fucking Loudmouths they are. It must be Tough for all Slayer Fans to realize this , but its the Fucking Truth, Admit it.

you are all a bunch of lame pussies. slayer is my favorite band ever. i have no problem admitting that 'god hates us all' was not the kind of technical and artistic masterpiece we have come to expect from slayer, but you know what? oh fucking well. slayer's been pumping out great fucking music for twenty or so years now, fuck, give them a break. if it weren't for them you'd all probably listen to shitty ass nu-metal liek system of a down or korn. does that sound liek fun? no. now if you'd rather go listen to some system or pop in some pussy ass incubus or one of the other million nu-metal, bandwagon shit out there, then i suggest shutting up and stop complaining about every little fucking thing. it's still good music, even if it doesn't compare to some of their earlier stuff.

oh and fuck acdc.

How any respectable fan of Metal can even sit there and say bad shit about Slayer is beyond me. Slayer have planted a root in Metal, Thrash specifically, that has kept on growing right from the start up until now. I'm not the world's biggest ACDC fan or the biggest Metallica fan but I respect what they have done in the past for heavy music and therefore I'm not going to talk bad about them.
God Hates Us All is a fine album and I personally think it still has the same Slayer-esque effect to it.
Critics and album reviewers aren't more experts than me or you, what they say about an album is just an opinion because people have different tastes and we all hear different songs/albums in our own ways. So anyone who even feels like bothering to TRY and bring Slayer down should just fuck right off because they have been making amazing music since the beginning of Thrash and they will continue to do so. Still one of the best Live acts, too. Slayer Forever.

Well, judging from the way you kids are spelling, metal without a doubt is certainly dumbing down the youth of today. So before this plague spreads to me, I think I'm going to rid myself of all my speed/thrash/death CD's. Contact me and I will let you know what I have, and I will decide how much I want for each individual CD since many of the ones I have are out of print and are considered valuable to collectors. By the way, if you believe that I am going to get rid of any of my CD's then you are such a sucker. This Slayer release kicks ass! NOW I SHALL REIGN IN BLOOD!!

What is this shit about Tom being a &quothollow shell of his former self&quot? I have been a Slayer fan since Reign and I can say that Tom has the most powerful voice I have ever heard. And on this album he is even stronger than ever before. God Hates Us All is way beyond intense, and you obviously didn't listen to it because there are several parts of this disk that are quite memorable. Oh I get it, you're a weak ass former grunge listener that has the unfounded duty to put down anything that &quotsmacks of effort&quot. What have you ever done? No-body can touch Slayer in musical Athleticism or their ability to remain unchallenged as hells’ house band. The effort that Slayer puts out is Herculean compared to just about any other band. When you get to hell your job will be: licker of rotting flesh. Toms’ job will be: screamer of endless Slayer tunes. He will be standing two feet away from your left ear. After you start complaining he will be happy to kick your sorry ass and move a few inches closer. How about actually listening to the next CD you review?

Not all music is about record sales and trying to incorporate new fans. SLayer sure the hell isn't and never was and never will be. Go listen to Britney Spears if you want record sales you poor excuse for a human being. You don't know any better like you claim to in your review, you're just a trendy little bitch who got sucked in to the vacuum of nu-metal and since Slayer has something that destroys your peace and can actually play guitar unlike those nu-metal posers, you're pissed.

Please have a clue what you're talking about before you post here.

Don't make comments about &quotin all metal&quot unless you've listened to all the metal there is.

Don't make comments about how people need to show Slayer &quotrespect&quot for &quotstarting metal&quot. This isn't the history of Slayer page. It's about the album &quotGod Hates Us All&quot and that's it. So shut the fuck up.

This album is far weaker than their previous albums. Listen to all of them first, then say otherwise.

On a large scale, noone is really depending on Slayer to carry the metal world. It's more of a novelty now... &quotOh, Slayer made another one eh? Neat.&quot There is a lot of better stuff out there in the same genre if you would take the time to look.

In the metal world, bands don't recover to their former selves after a release like this. I don't doubt Slayer is trying to stay true to metal, but they've reached and passed their peak over 15 years ago.

All things considered, a 6/10 is a fair score for this album.

Slayer is not interested in just copying Reign In Blood or other 'old school' Slayer material and I understand that... it's a sign of their strength and courage not to rely on old fame.
Nevertheless it is still Slayer and instantly recognizable for it's aggression, eerieness and darkness!!! And of course the voice of Araya, who indeed screams more that ever... which is fine with me.
But it would be great if he would use the Reign In Blood / South of Heaven style of voice on the next album again... to me it has the most impact if his voice is both scary AND aggressive (on God hates... the scary part tends to be overwhelmed by the pure aggression).

ALL OF YOU SLAYER-HATERS OUT THERE NEED TO FUCK OFF!!! In my opinion, kerry, jeff, and tom have been doing a perfect job of balancing the two extremes of re-hashing the same old shit on the one hand and coming up with new shit so radically different that it alienates their fan-base and doesn't sell. I'm a classically trained musician who spends hours studying music theory and analyzing sheet music scores from all of slayer's albums (as well as writing my own) and I feel fully qualified to say that God Hates Us All incorporates bits and pieces of all of Slayer's previous albums and roots (the slower, crushing black sabbath influence on South of Heaven, the faster Judas Priest influence on Hell Awaits, etc.) with something new. Yes, something new, call it creativity, genius, whatever the fuck you want to but &quotnew&quot things are what art is all about (a good example of new elements introduced are masterful 7-string riffs ala Steve Vai and Tom Arraya's new sing-scream melodic vocal sound, WHICH COMES FROM HARD CORE PUNK, btw, NOT LINKIN PARK NU-METAL, listen to fucking Undisputed Attitude if you don't know what I'm talking about). Sure, Divine Intervention was a little weak, but the aggression on God Hates Us All is indisputable, and the fact that it acts as a capstone album of Slayer's carreer, incorporating their previous techniques and influences with new ones makes it all the better (not to mention the anti-christian militant atheist lyrics, which are fucking awesome compared to the funny yet almost cartoon-like satanic shit on some of their previous albums). In conclusion, I put this album as one of my top three favorite Slayer albums along with Reign in Blood and Seasons in the Abyss.

i dont get it how paople always piss and moan about a band they dont like. im into fear factory (a good fan, considering that ive only been into them for a few years), cradle of filth, sabbath, evanescence, gothminister, spineshank, slayer, staticx, and soad to name a few, and im into other kinds of music. im into a bit of queen, a bit of dance and a bit of pop (NOT britney &quotvirgin&quot spears). yes there is quite a lot of twisted twattery that they call music around these days. i mean c'mon, they haven't come up with a show called metal-stars have they? thats one of things that pisses me off. ghua was the 1st slayer album i bought (mainly coz id heard bloodline of which i loved and still do) and i think its a pretty decent album. i then bought reign in blood. its a good album, but i had to get used to it, mainly coz of the annoying drum beats that woz in every song. but now ive got over those beats and i enjoy that album. the 2 albums differ in sound in some aspects, mainly cos king n hanneman had de-tuned their guitars for diabolus and ghua. that doesnt make them nu-metal. nu-metal is linkin park and wimp bizkit. i own both lp albums and all three lb albums, and all in all, (im gunna get flamed 4 this) i think they are all relatively good albums. its like when i bought self destructive pattern by spineshank. no it isnt as heavy as height of callousness vocal-wise, but it has a lot of good songs on that disc. every band finds a new sound to work with. some stay on 1 particular subject but still take on a new sound every now and then. every1 shud give slayer a break, coz they're like every other band in the world, they're experimenting with different sounds.

Sure, he learned from Satriani and stuff, but Slayer's leads are way better. Not to mention Hetfield's solos (1 or 2 at most). And yeah Slayer copies everything Metallica does. 'Chemical Warfare' is a rip off of 'Trapped under cum'. The same thing for 'War Ensemble' and 'Sad but gay'. C'mon dude I've listened to Metallica since I was like 12. When 'Load' came out it broke my heart. I even stopped listening to metal for like 2 or 3 years. I completely lost my faith. Thank (Non-existant) God I discovered Slayer. If you need a definition of 'metal' i know 2: 'Black Sabbath' and 'Slayer'. Don't go into a Slayer thread saying that they're a poor man's Metallica. Maybe Slayer doesn't have as much money as Metallica, but everybody know why...

PS: Is Kirk Hammett gay? Seriously, I've heard lots of rumors. Anyone knows for sure?

Slayer stomp on metallicas puny bullshit. GHUA is loaded with same substanceless nu metal angst as diablois in musica. They sold out long back, but they still are leagues ahead of metallica. correct me if im wrong, but didnt kerry king write piece by piece necrophobic hell awaits..etc? you trying to say those songs are weak?

I think this cd is fukin rad some of the songs do sound a little bit simple and plain but wait till you hear Kerry King shread on the solos and you will be thinking differently &quotPayback&quot and &quotBloodline&quot especially when Jeff just mashes the fret board with the solo. Those are my two fav songs off this incredible album.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD CD BY SLAYER. PROBABLY THEIR BEST SINCE SEASONS. I THOUGHT THE VOCALS WERE GREAT AS TOM JUST SCREAMS HIS ASS OFF ON THIS ONE! THIS CD SOUNDS TRULY ANGRY AND COMES OFF REAL WELL IN A LIVE SITUATION-A TESTAMENT TO GOOD MATERIAL. I DO PREFER THE WRITING OF HANNENMAN TO KING, BUT THIS CD CAME OUT ALRIGHT IN SPITE OF THAT DEFICIENCY. I WAS LUCKY TO GET A COPY WITH THE NAILS PENETRATING THE BIBLE ON THE CD COVER AS IT LOOKS MUCH BETTER THAN THAT WHITE-WASHED PIECE OF SHIT. P.S. -THE SALES DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEASONS AND DIVINE INTERVENTION ALSO HAVE MUCH TO DO WITH THE MUSICAL CLIMATE OF THE TIME. IT SOLD HALF THE COPIES BECAUSE THE SLAYER-SELLOUT FANS WERE PURCHASING NIRVANA AND SOUNDGARDEN RECORDS. OTHERWISE OUT OF THE BOX SALES WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH HIGHER-INITIALLY UNTIL PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE CD SUCKED.

I was very impressed with this album. I liked it a lot more than Diabolus and that ridiculous shit called Undisputed Attitude. I even like it more than Divine Intervention. This CD has the aggression of Reign In Bllod, only the vocals are not near as good. Tom's voice has been lacking since Seasons In The Abyss but I can understand why. No one can sing like that forever. I am surprised he was able to for as long as he did. This album would have been a perfect 10 if the voice was sounded more like Reagn In Blood. I give it an 8 out of 10.

Slayer just keeps getting better and better with each album. the music is still brutal and agressive, and the lyrics on GHUA are definitely more simple and casual, as opposed to the more fantasy related wordplays that they're known for. but the pissed-off factor is even more prevalent on this album. with past albums, if they said they were going to kill you, they would be very descriptive, and elaborate in explaining how they would do this. but on God Hates Us All, they would just say: "I'm gonna f*cking kill you, b*tch!".

this guy should be canned...or fired at rather with a paintball gun for his terrible review. Slayer doesn't give a fuck if they reinvent themselves, they have a style that they wish not to fuck with. 8/10

Not as good as older stuff but definetatly worth an 8...especially "disciple" \m/
