If, as some suspect, Beelzebub has a soft spot for hard metal, he'll be delighted with Slayer's raucous return to form on the group's eighth album. With producer Rick Rubin (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Run-DMC) back at the helm, the thrash-metal pioneers have trimmed the excess flab that weighed them down in the early '90s. Back in evidence is the clinical speed, power, and aggression that once made them metal's most revered extremists. But while their trademark breakneck riffing remains, Slayer reaches beyond the old routines to pack a greater punch. "Love to Hate" harbors a fat hip-hop groove, "In the Name of God" toys malevolently with grunge-rock flavors, and "Point" concludes the 11-song set at just under 110 miles per hour. Diabolus in Musica is an emphatic resurrection--and then some. --Steffan Chirazi

Review

Death metal was never one of your more flexible genres, and here it just feels dead. This is loudness without fun, blasphemy with no shades of gray. -- Spin

Slayer again plumbs the depths of evil and macabre obsessions in savage (and often morbidly funny) lyrics, sinister guitar attacks and punishing rhythms. Tom Araya's animal growl has real menace, and songs like "Perversions of Pain" and "Love to Hate" don't scrimp on blasphemy and graphic aggression, yet Slayer's brand of subversion is the kaleidoscopic violence of comic books. -- USA Today

I have been a Slayer fan before Reign in Blood broke all the rules regarding thrash, ferocity, and brutality. South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss remain masterpieces, worthy of continued praise. Than along comes Diabolus in Musica! Many "so called" die-hard Slayer fans complained the band comprised its roots by aiming this disc towards nu-metal fans. A veteran band like Slayer can't re-cycle music that shows a regression in ability. They needed to re-invent themselves, while not alienating thier fan base. Diabolus is Slayer! Powerfull, heavy as hell, brutal, and dare I say, they have incorporated some "groove". They have not comprised any of the savage approach that has made them the KINGS of metal. Standouts include: Bitter Piece, Stain of Mind, and Scrum. Is this their best album, I don't know, the album just kicks ASS!

you know...there was a time when each of slayer's albums were landmarks...they set the trends in metal, and all others followed...but now the roles have been reversed...in times past, slayer would somehow alter their sound and that is how speed/thrash metal would sound until the next slayer album was released...well, now it appears that slayer is going with whatever is happening in the scene at the time as opposed to this former greatness...oh well...
now that i have gotten that out of the way...this is not that bad...it is, by no means, as radical of a departure from their past as many of their contemporaries have taken of late(metallica, megadeth, etc...), but it is not slayer either...but if you are new to the band, get this and prepare yourself for true greatness as you wander further into the catalog of music made by these legends...if you are already a fan, get it and just be thankful that you are a slayer fan and not a metallica die-hard...at least we still get two or three "slayer" songs on the album...
again, i am sorry if this comes off as though i do not like the album...i have just been spoiled over the past 17 years and my expectations for these guys are far too high to be realistic...

I know Slayer probably won't release another album as good as Reign In Blood or South of Heaven, and I know they're beyond the 80s reverberated sound of Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits. But do I think they could release an album on the same level as Seasons In the Abyss? Yes I do, and unfortunately, they haven't done it on this record. The album isn't soft by any means - the music is still very intense and angry, but many of the songs, even the good ones, sound second-rate and not all the way there, if not worse. The production is decent, but the guitars have somewhat of a muddy sound, probably due to the lower tunings that were used this time around. There are some tiny bass fills here and there on the album, which I liked - I think Tom Araya has always been overlooked as a bass player. Sure, he's not up there with Cliff Burton or Steve Harris, but the guy can certainly play fast and keep up with the band. The drums are decent, but again, nothing truly impressive other than a few double-bass rolls scattered throughout. Overall, a mediocre record for Slayer, at best. I don't recommend this to any new or potential Slayer fans, because it isn't a good representation of the band's talent and ability. But like I said, there are a few good songs here - "Bitter Peace", "Death's Head", and "Stain of Mind". Pick it up if you're a hardcore Slayer fan.

After the average Divine Intervention, and the covers album Undisputed Attitude, Slayer realized that they wanted to do something a little bit differently on this release with the excellent Rick Rubin. By adding downtuned guitars, thick grooves, and great songwriting, Slayer slows down (a little) and shows why they are easily one of the greatest metal bands on the planet. Even with the moments of faux-rapping on Love to Hate and Stain of Mind, this is far---very far from nu-metal. This is still angry thrash with loads of ripping guitar solos. Instant classics include Bitter Peace, Overt Enemy, Stain of Mind, and Scrum. This is a MUST purchase for fans of Reign In Blood, South of Heaven, and Seasons In The Abyss.

I think it's quite obvious at this point that Slayer is an unstoppable machine of headbanging bliss that has little chance of losing its massive fanbase. They've come to be loved for their uncomprimisingly brutal take on thrash metal and the fact that they stick to their guns like no other band. Even when a hint of change is detected in their work, it's still Slayer and it's still satisfying. This strength is especially apparent with Diabolus In Musica.

Slayer has been going at it for over twenty years, and most of their songs have followed a strict code of conduct -- namely the speed. Some people complain that DIM leaves this aspect of Slayer's talent behind. Not so. It only reduces the amount of it -- and what's so bad about that? The trademark thrashing style is still found here, only it's accompanied by more of the slower, brooding riffs and drum work that, in earlier releases, didn't really dominate. Does slower mean less heavy? Absolutely not. I think it actually helps the music and gives it a darker feel. Not to mention makes the faster parts even more pronounced. For one thing, the myth of "slower equals boring" is clearly busted throughout the album.

As far as the music and song structure goes, I didn't think it sounded like "filler" material at all. These are classics in their own right. You can't expect Reign In Blood or other definitive Slayer albums to be surpassed, and I think the band is well aware of that. The riffs are still heavy, mean, and at times -- in a completely non-melodic way -- even catchy. The lyrics and vocal work are also a nice touch. With DIM, Araya is leaning more toward the shouting style that would later take on practically every line in God Hates Us All. A little more like a mix, though, between the old and new.
