Even some of the biggest Slayer fans assumed the band was finished after guitarist Jeff Hanneman died in 2013, and Dave Lombardo quit again. I was lucky enough to see the band firing on all cylinders in 2010, where they blew away Megadeth and Anthrax, and my face off by playing Seasons In The Abyss (1990) in it’s entirety. It was definitely one of the greatest live metal shows I’d ever witnessed. Then after their devastating personnel losses, they did it again, this time performing Reign In Blood (1986), one of the greatest metal albums of all times, at last year’s Riot Fest. Drummer Paul Bostaph and Exodus‘ Gary Holt filled the vacant spots admirably. They made me believe they still have another album in them. Like Iron Maiden and most other metal bands, they had a rough time in the 90s, but emerged revived for the most part in 2001 with God Hates Us All (released coincidentally on September 11 — was it intentional that Repentless also came out 9/11?), with Christ Illusion (2006) probably the most satisfying batch. True to their recent performances, Tom Araya’s barking vocals are as potent as ever, with many of the hardest, fastest performances on record since at least Divine Intervention (1994). However, while Kerry King does an admirable job summarizing their strengths, Hanneman’s contributions are missed. His song “Piano Wire” is included, which of course was never meant to be his last statement, and may be a letdown for some. The production, performance and pacing are faultless. But it does sound like a solid late career album, rather than one that promises a new era of relevance. And when most bands artistically peter out after three albums, there’s certainly no shame in their track record of at least four essential genre-defining classics and another six solidly entertaining albums. | http://fastnbulbous.com/geezerpalooza-pentagram-motorhead-slayer/

Others have written longer reviews detailing every song, so I won't do that here. What I can say is that Repentless is another worthy addition to Slayer's discography, even with the 50% lineup change. The overall sound and feel of the album is in line with later Slayer works like Christ Illusion and World Painted Blood, nothing really new here but, like Motorhead and AC/DC, this is not a bad thing. It sounds like a proper Slayer album, and this is good. It is worth noting that the late Jeff Hanneman's replacement Gary Holt fits right in, having toured with Slayer prior to recording this album. To my damaged ears, most shredder guitarists sound alike, so my endorsement should be taken with a few grains of salt. But I have no trouble when it comes to the drummer, and I have nothing but praise for Paul Bostoph's kit work on this album. On past albums, I've always preferred Dave Lombardo's 'Latin jazz percussionist on amphetamines' sound to Bostoph's precise but mechanical sound, but here, Bostoph has never sounded better. He sounds almost laid-back, even relaxed, and it has added just a fine detail of style that really works well with the band. And though it sounds like a letdown to say after such praise, Kerry King is just as solid and dark as ever, while Tom Araya still lays down the deep bass lines and belts out his vocals with the same enthusiasm as always. In the end, it's a good album, though not a great one, and certainly a worthy addition to any diehard Slayer fan's collection. The fun Blu-ray is an added bonus.

It's been six years since Slayer's World Painted Blood, and, man, has a lot of crap gone down. First was Dave Lombardo's contract dispute and dismissal, followed a few months later by Jeff Hanneman's tragic passing. Slayer has come out the other side with the strongest players possible, bringing back Paul Bostaph and welcoming Gary Holt into the fold. As expected, they've put together a strong album that may not measure up to their past glories, but proves that Slayer has no need or intention to pack it in and call it a day. Like most fans I've talked to and the majority of critcs, I thought World Painted Blood was their best effort since Divine Intervention, as they upped the thrash factor, and Tom utilized a lot more actual singing similar to South of Heaven, drawing more than a few comparisons to that album. It seemed the band was primed for a true throwback effort after two albums back with Lombardo. But then reality stepped in and changed the game.

I think Repentless is as good as it could be, and better than Slayer's detractors predicted. It has several songs that sound like full-on Slayer classics, and a few more that come close. My favorites are “Take Control,” “Piano Wire,” “Implode,” “Atrocity Vendor,” and “You Against You.” After that, “Repentless” and “Chasing Death” are pretty good. Best track for me is “Piano Wire,” which will probably be the last new Slayer song written mostly by Jeff. It sounds like “Seasons” musically, and Tom gives what is one of my favorite vocal performances by him ever. Very, very cool song. “Take Control” is mostly fast with a speed metal vibe on a couple parts that actually reminds me a lot of the Show No Mercy album.
