Editorial Reviews

God Hates Us All was released on September 11, 2001. Some promotional material announcing the album title and release date drew an unintended connection with the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

O.K., so maybe Slayer aren't as good as they once were (purely because they're not as fast as they once were), but come on people. This C.D. is not bad. "God Hates Us All" is more brutal than their past few releases (probably Slayer's most brutal album since "Reign in Blood"), and the songs are longer, too.

Now, there is no denying the songs are slower than the Slayer that we knew in the '80's; but times change. Slayer can't keep making the same record again and again, or else they'd be criticized for doing that (just like some fans were dissapointed with "Divine Intervention," because they thought it was a "Reign in Blood" rehash.) Slayer needed to evolve and tweak their sound a little bit. But this is still Slayer: most of the songs here are still blindingly fast. The riffs just fly by, still as fast, if not faster than any other band, and ten times faster than any nu-metal band. Plus (if you think this album was influenced by nu-metal bands or other music that was popular at the time), I don't know any Korn or Linkin Park album that has guitar solos!

There's no denying the vocals have changed, too. Tom Araya's voice almost never changes throughout this album, and it can be, at times, a bit grating. But what else is he supposed to do? With music this loud, he can't switch to calm singing or metal crooning. Also, his voice is slower, but is that a bad thing? On this album (opposed to some of Slayer's previous albums) you can actually tell what he's saying most of the time. And even if Tom's voice does get irritating, there's enough ceiling shaking guitar work to make up for it.

Finally, can a band be fast and loud but not inspired? Yes, "God Hates Us All" is very loud. While playing this C.D.

I agree with that guys review. Slayer has changed but its not the music at all, its Tom's voice. He cant scream like he use to, just listen to some concerts of the past few years. If this cd was released back after Reign in Blood, this would probably be the greatest thrash metal ever. This cd has amazing lyrics, the guitars are very heavy, Tom's voice is a little changed but its still an amazing cd. Id recommend this cd to all the people who think Korn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, and those types of bands are heavy and violent-this guys dont go soft, they just get more pissed off. I saw them in concert, and that was the first time they used the raining blood effect. Lets just say that changed my life forever, and my view on metal bands. Slayer releases album after album of great, heavy, violent music and very disturbing, imaginative lyrics. Long live the greatest metal band of all time , SLAYER

GHUA is not only one of the most extreme metal albums released in 2001, it is a jewel in Slayer's crown of brutality.Top notch riffing, melody and an exhausting vocal performance from Tom Araya combine with sharp production and result in an almost perfect thrash album. Once again, Slayer's lyrics strike the perfect balance between morbid humour and seriousness. Thematically, GHUA examines the pain and suffering a person goes through in their life and the question over whether life is worth living at all. God is presented as the ultimate sadist and the album touches on the hopelessness and helplessness everyone feels at onetime or another. I only have one complaint. The first four and last three songs are so good that the middle almost suffers in comparison. Now a song by song breakdown.
1.Darkness of Christ- An excellent intro track to the album. The words suggest that the world spins on a mantra of 'survival of the fittest'. N/A
2.Disciple- The first track is also the best. Paul's drumming is brutal and fast with enough rhythym changes in percussion and guitars to keep an audience interested after several spins.10/10
3.God Send Death- The opening is a melodic throwback to South of Heaven that twists into a straight out thrasher.9/10
4.New Faith- The grooviest track on the album and a welcome dose of comic relief comes about halfway through. Let the words 'I keep the Bible in a pool of blood' ring through the ages.9/10
5.Cast Down- A serious song about the despair of homelessness. The jilted drum part will throw you of balance while the guitars pull you in.9/10
6.Threshold- One of the weakest songs on the album, it should have been better. The guitar riff is cool but it never picks up any complexity. It feels like a half a song.7/10

I managed to get my hands on an advance 6-track promo and thought I'd give my views on what I've heard so far. Overall it's an excellent preview; musically, it sounds like a slightly nastier "Diabolus..." with lots of tempo changes, and lyrically, well...let's just say that Slayer is one of the few Alcatraz Islands in a sea of changing metal attitudes.
1. "Bloodline": good slow-pacer, lyrics remind me of "At Dawn They Sleep".
2. "New Faith": catchy groove mid-pacer; doesn't really sound like a Slayer song in places, but overall a good song with cool lyrical stabs at organized religion (kind of an overall theme throughout the album).
3. "God Send Death": an awesome mid-to-fast tempo-changer; pretty much textbook Slayer. Sounds like it could've been on "South of Heaven".
4. "Cast Down": kinda plodding and filler-ish; this one didn't really do it for me. Fast forward.
5. "Here Comes the Pain": sounds much better here than on that wrestling album (whatever that was). Lyrics are kinda dumb, but hey, they wrote it for a wrestling album!
6. "Disciple": this one's my favorite; another kick.. mid-to-fast tempo changer with a riff straight out of "Reign In Blood" and with vocals and lyrics that will make your grandma turn blue (especially the super-angry slow end part). Now THIS is SLAYER! YEAH!
I only gave this 4-stars because I haven't heard the rest of the album, but the future looks wonderfully grim! HAIL SLAYER!!!!
