Both track also reintroduces the frenetic soloing sorely lacking on the previous release. Next batter up is Disciple and this is easily the best full-length tune on this album. Hanneman and co. must have been suffering from a severe lack of inspiration, because I am completely confounded as to how you can come up with worse shit than this. I think because Kerry was very influenced by shitty lyrics of the mallcore band Slipknot. Well, you can say, at least Slayer showed the world that when it comes to hard and loud music, they still rule the scene, and I guess if you would have played this album to a Slipknot or Machine Head fan back then, while listening to this, he would have peed in his pants. Tom sounds really insane in some parts (not insane as in insanely good but just really twisted). 'Homocide, suicide, Nobody can say any longer that he loves us, because exactly 15 years ago, he did not prevent the release of this miserable work that begged for the deceptive love of the zeitgeist. New Faith 05. Slayer - God Hates Us All music album discussion and ratings. After the solo a riff enters, a riff with such intensity, it will blow you away. Anger, Slayer have done an awesome job with making the vocals sound good with the measly guitar playing Slayer - "God Hates Us All" lautuser Vor 12 Jahren. Isolation rapes you everyday So in the end Slayer may have won the battle against the newer metal genres, but the price for this, meaning that they have abandoned everything that makes them the band they are, being good musicians, just was too high. I love early Slayer for their stripped down approach to dark thrash. God Hates Us All, an Album by Slayer. The sound is heavier than Slayer have ever sounded and certainly 10 times heavier than St. Anger, although it's not nearly as speedy and "melodic" as Reign in Blood. Another example: "Exile". Songs like Payback and War Zone, although are damn solid for me, aren't very creative in the lyrics department and just seem to be angry for the sake of being angry. Yes, there are a lot of different riffs, but most of them are simply not memorable at all. The songs here are just too vocal-centered; that’s what it is. Here comes the pain sucks and Payback sucks. The lyrics are better. This album is a frustrating listen. God Hates Us All is real, and nothing screams "SLIPKNOT RIP" quite like this. Persoonlijke klassiker ;), Slayer - God Hates Us All Ten eerste; Slayer heeft een eigen Now if you're just in it for heavy music and you're not nit-picky about genres, then I can assure you that you will probably really dig this record, for I think it's definitely Slayer's heaviest outing. Download "Disciple" and leave it at that, because there's absolutely nothing else on this album worth hearing. Undoubtedly, the album is full of great riffs and songs, but some of them sound very mono-tone, much like the vocals on a few of the tracks (for example, New Faith is a very annoying track). Now I have to address this album's lyrics, I noticed that Kerry King wrote a lot of the lyrics found on here, but I just wanna know, what the fuck were you thinking when you write a line like, "I keep the bible in a pool of blood so that none of it's lies can affect me"? “Threshold” and “Here Comes The Pain” could well go down in history as the most ridiculously groovy and boring songs ever to be put out by a formerly respectable band, mimicking various ideas that you’d sooner hear out of The Deftones or Limp Bizkit than any serious metal band. I like Slayer’s formula of angry, scribbled-lines-on-paper Thrash!’ Well, fuck, I’m wrong again, and that’s why I’m paying the price. nu lombardo terug is :-)) wordt de volgende nog beter, Slayer - God Hates Us All An ironic twist of fate? But Slayer, slightly megalomaniac, do not respect the basics. The distortion of the guitars is what really lends this album the rawness that makes it so distinguishable, and Tom's shouted vocals, which also seems to split fans, make the music sound just downright pissed off. Then the song "Threshold": the first time I heard it I couldn't believe it was Slayer, it was a brutal version of bands like Disturbed etc... Good drums by Bostaph and then Tom who seems to try (and fortunately fails) to sing like a hip hop singer (or maybe he tries to imitate the Disturbed singer, I don't know), it's maybe catchy but the lyrics are very silly and again there are no solos. Pure comedic flop. “Deviance” continues this sort of blasé song writing. Especially “Seven Faces”. (Sadly tracks like "Here Comes the Pain" and "Seven Faces" offer the fan little to crow about at all.) There are some devestating songs and riffs on here, and the production is great. Your fingers bleed in vain God Hates Us All is a painfully enervated, lifeless release, especially in the ironic context of the fact that the band are clearly trying so hard to create something angry and full of emotion. After a little intro that was not essential we come into the first song: "Disciple". This CD's got much better songs than Diabolus. I’m sort of stuck between whether I should sigh at this or just silently go about my business as if it doesn’t exist whenever someone mentions this album in a conversation, but unlike Jehovah and Lucifer, I have more important things to do than spending my days hating this album, not to mention that unlike them I don’t have an eternity of time to waste on such things. Take the opening track, Disciple, which really gets going with the under-verse riffage, and then goes "pfftt!" Where have I heard that one before? This is a really, really painful listen. Paul Bostaph was always competent doing his task of destroying completely his drum kit and buying some new skins and cymbals every day (he had to, with the intensity he stroke the drums they should have been destroyed by the end of the day...). “God Send Death” is much too slow. Next up is Wicked. A lot of hopefuls still believe they can return to past glory, but hoping just deepens the wounds, because it looks like they’re not going in that direction. I am quite shocked at the degree of heaviness that this album demonstrates. Well, if you are open minded, I think you'll like this and it's a good item, especially with the original "butchered bible" cd package, to get. It's for the best he changed his voice, or it would have been emberassing. al evenaart het nooit Reign In Blood! My only hope was that this album remained an isolated case, an experiment gone wrong. Waaaaay too much. “All men are not created equal, only the strong will prosper; only the strong will conquer.” I remember reading similarities in the infamous “Mein Kampf” written by Adolf Hitler. Sometimes bands just let out solos if they don't know what to play, and I guess even nobody who actually likes this album would have missed these stupid solos. The point is, the band made a departure from what they were good at, and every Slayer fan was on their toes leading up to 9/11 (a fitting release date) waiting to see if they would return to their thrash roots. Is it the trash-revolution the people so eagerly need? He gave me this... WAR ZOOOONE!” when it pummels me. "Despair, emptiness i hate everyone equally Do small changes in a band's sound for an album or two irk you? To some, it appeared to be another record in which the thrash icons failed to diversify their songwriting. It’s slightly meandering and needed some more speed to it. KUT! Perhaps the fact that it’s sandwiched between two much better tracks doesn’t help its cause, but I feel if it was faster, I would’ve enjoyed it more. Incredibly brutal, God Hates Us All is Slayer 's most effective album since Seasons in the Abyss (1990), thanks in large part to Matt Hyde 's raw production and a handful of killer songs. Then the sound changes again: seven faces sounds very good, with an agressive doom-riff (remembers me of gates of slumber). The songs range from boring, try-hard bursts of immature aggression like “Cast Down,” the awful “Threshold” and the annoying “War Zone” to faux-catchy nu-metal stinkbombs like “Seven Faces” and the atrocious distorted layering of “Deviance.” “Here Comes the Pain” has riffs that resemble the rumbling of a hungry stomach, and “Payback” has swearing like Tom just stubbed his toe and burned his hand on a hot stove…at the same time. This is some of the most awful material in the band's entire catalogue. God Hates Us All Slayer. You know it's true God hates this place Review Slayer 4 World Painted Blood. Vooral 'God send Death' en 'Bloodline' zijn absolute toppers! After that, it just gets worse. The Slayer formula with these songs absolutely works, and for these reasons does not deserve its unrelenting scorn. It seems that the songs are made in an attempt to make Slayer relevant in the current times, where bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, and other groove-laden rock outfit tailor their music into prepackaged, commercially angst-ridden music. Darkness Of Christ 02. Ok, I've been listening to this album alot now, and I'm getting tired of it. are excellent lyrics. It's strange but it's catchy in spite of the lyrics. Bloodline 06. Only problem is that the vocals-effects uses voice-distortion. For instance, the main riff of Bloodline is the kind of shit that guitarists in their first few months of playing come up with. Review Slayer 8 Christ Illusion. We'll pretend this was a bad dream and we'll put Hell Awaits on repeat like the good well intentioned metalheads we are. Slayer are one of the very few bands that are able to stay true to their heavy roots and still naturally progress, even after all these years. In a world that feeds on hate Same intensity like that unforgettable opening riff of Angel of Death! Slayer - God Hates Us All I'm not gonna bother giving more examples, you just need to read some of the lyrics written on this turd and you'll see what I mean. This video is unavailable. That honour would go to such boring songs as Cast Down and Deviance. Diabolus In Musica isn’t much better but at least it has decent lyrics and a few more good songs. and After a dissapointing Diabolus In Musica, Slayer started the 2000's with the furious God Hates Us All. So yeah, this album is just full of wonderfully un-metal riffs, one-dimensional vocal diarrhea and that awful modern rhythmic fuzz that makes it sound so…contemporary. These are very good songs, especially here comes the pain, which represents the new slayer (thrashcore)sound the best. Reactie van metallicass op 05-01-2005 om 19:02u. Reactie van 'bones' op 25-11-2004 om 16:42u. Now, on with the bad, which is pretty much everything else. Sorry, boys, this just wasn't your album. The thrash influence is still there, but they’ve grooved it up. Oh, and Kerry, take Slipknot's cock out of your mouth and put on Hell Awaits again. Puritanical fanatics...I will not even try…it does not worth it...do what you want to do, buy it or not… it's your choice... Slayer, without a doubt, are one of my favorite bands. Scientists report that the charisma of his voice was on vacation during the recordings. While this album is furious Thrash Metal, there's some experimentation with Groove and a few NuMetal songs, lyrically, this is one of the best Slayer albums talking about the World problems that were happening in the early 2000's. Shit: New Faith, Threshold If they release this sort of feces, that is. Anyway, there are actually 11 more songs after "Disciple," but it feels like one long one. But I have to tell some things to Kerry, Jeff and Tom: God Hates us All received generally positive reviews from music critics. "Reign in Blood" was good, but it's a dead era now, accept it, and welcome the new "God Hates us All" Slayer. @dein_boeser_Anwalt (« ja, das ist ja wirklich so ne richtige eddy-review Slayer are one of the very few bands that are able to stay true to their heavy roots and still naturally progress, even after all these years. War Zone is short and direct, no bullshit; it's heavy and has an interesting rusty sound, which Metallica tried but failed to create on St. Anger. But it sure is better than Diabolus in Musica. It reminds me of Pantera's Vulgar Display Of Power in how both genres are thrown in, and also just how raw everything sounds. 's Jason Arnopp described the album as "easily Slayer's most convincing collection since Seasons in the Abyss ," awarding the album five out of five. Er zijn bands die harder rossen maar er zijn ook zeker bands die softer zijn! Desperate need of riffs. It's almost as if Slayer is wanting to charge somewhere as quicky and devastatingly as possible but somehow got distracted along the way. Bleed your death upon me God Hates Us All is the ninth studio album by American thrash metal band Slayer.Released on September 11, 2001, the album received positive critical reviews and entered the Billboard 200 at number 28. After waiting three years since Slayer's previous release, Diabolus In Musica, God Hates Us All wasn't exactly a huge disappointment, but I expected better. They hired a handful of bums off the street to play the instruments, and brought in the guy from Slipknot to do vocals (they figured no one would notice because Tom had done such a good job of sounding like him up to this point). Amen to that. Because it sounds as though they were the ones who made it. SLAYER "God Hates Us All" (American) 01. no segregation, seperation Of course, King has backed off from making such statements as of late because it is no longer popular to be a $lipknot ripoff. Cast Down is misplaced mallcore worship, with that completely fucking awful vocal delivery. It is so well executed and pure in concept that it is essential. Consider the vocals. Making threats to your listeners via the lyrics will always sound silly and ridiculous. The last song, payback, tries to be old school slayer, but it is just a bad copy from Angel of Death. The rest is forgettable. This is a pretty bad album, even by punk rock standards. But hey, at least they throw in that two-note Raining Blood riff. Tracks like "New Faith" share the destiny of "God Send Death". Tom Araya's distorted vocals sound pretty shitty, but they're tolerable in the context of the rest of the song. I am quite shocked at the degree of heaviness that this album demonstrates. Slow riffing, uninspiring and boring. Then again, when you have an album titled God Hates Us All, you shouldn't really expect brilliant lyricism. Then "Seven Faces", a simple intro with a lot of effect which give a dark and evil atmosphere, but ruined by Tom's scream: a very distorted growl with a lot of effects at the end. The moments then get even fewer and even farther between from here... God Send Death starts off cool, and is even okay when it gets fast, other than the complete neutering done by the production... the vocals suck so goddamn hard, and the guitars lack any aggression whatsoever. Er zijn meerdere thrash/speed/death grondleggers zoals TESTAMENT en ANTHRAX, OVERKILL,LAAZ ROCKET en METAL CHURCH. Het album is inderdaad heerlijk. Seriously, not only did they apparently bring in the Slipknot guy to do vocals, it seems they also let him write the lyrics. ‘God Hates Us All’ but he likes us enough to give us this record. I would say Slayer passed their undeniably lowest point in that terrible Diabolus in Musica, and even though this is no great album, it's a masterpiece in comparison to Diabolus. The lyrics are something that will really make your blood pump in your veins, they talk about a story of revenge: "I'm going to tear your f*cking eyes out, rip your f*cking flesh off, beat you till you're just a f*cking lifeless carcass!..." Seriously, this is probobaly the most agressive… Repetitive, mallcore-influence, boring. Reactie van klokkie op 03-05-2013 om 02:45u Het is gewoon vet cool om Tom Araya zo woedend te horen. These breaks seem to be an end in itself, but the truth is even worse. Auf der Haben-Seite steht, dass Slayer sich gesanglich auf einem Höhepunkt befanden, ihre Stärken der früheren Alben jedoch völlig nicht ausleben konnten. The riffs are good, the lyrics too, justifying the title of the album. The lyrics have gone from frightening (Hell Awaits era) to just plain stupid - it's clear to see that this band is desperately running out of ideas. stijl ontwikkeld die ze het, ondanks allerlei invloeden altijd weet te behouden. Seven Faces is proof of that. niet uitgetrashed is. They are the same people who drive Camaros to work and marry their sisters, hiding their mullets in ponytails under NASCAR caps. (The flow of the album is that stunted sadly...a new song order could have helped!) A statement from Kerry King underlined that they were still searching for a new style, but also trying to get back to the roots. Slayer just betrayed their own style by replacing anything that was in a way sophisticated and needed more that 3 months of guitar lessons with loudness war production and totally dumb Slipknot style riffs. God Send Death and New Faith are good songs, with good solos. Tom Araya’s vocals are strained and shouty as he constipates his way through about fourteen tracks of monotonous, dicrectionless nu-metal irrelevancy without any shame. Albumcover Catchy end in that particular song. Well, really bad, actually. I can understand people wanting evil Slayer over angry Slayer, but I really do dig the vibes on this album. Seriously, this is probobaly the most agressive… That's right one and a half. Don't you love Christmas? The masters are back with a new opus, so is it up to their standard? Score: 80 / 100. Slayer God Hates Us All review Thrash Metal. Gone are the great production values we've become accustomed to thanks to albums such as Reign In Blood, South Of Heaven, Seasons In The Abyss, etc. Exile? "God Hates Us All" is a fitting title. This is clearly Slayer at the bottom of the barrel as far as material goes, and it really shows in the album's overall sound. mmm...een dubbel gevoel. While God Hates Us All isn't the strongest piece of music that Slayer has done, I don't think it's bad at all. Not only that, but we don't even have a welcome respite in Slayer's trademark chaotic and brutal guitar solos like we had on their last album, as the solos on this project feel incredibly forced and consist of maybe three or four notes whammied to hell and pushed through some sort of flanger or echo pedal (which is a lot less Slayer-iffic than you would think), where they even exist at all. "I hate you and I hate everything." Disciple, War Zone and Bloodline are highlights of this current maximum-yelling sound they are trying out. I can understand that this is not for everyone, and I can also see where Slayer fans of old might point an accusing finger at this, since it is in some ways a departure from the pure thrash roots they pioneered many years prior. A good solo. Reactie van een op 10-11-2001 om 20:08u I will admit however that this is due to more of their earlier efforts, as I was quite disappointed with the last few. All in all this album sucks. ‘God Hates Us All’ but he likes us enough to give us this record. We all know you're not gonna smash our heads in, so why the pretentiousness? Review Slayer 7 Diabolus In Musica. Sure, GHUA puts on a veneer of violence and intimidation, much like a random middle finger thrown by a bunch of joyriding teens at the crossing guard. Payback’s a bitch, motherfucker! just me in my world of enemies' Trust me people, it doesn't get much better from here, as the rest of the album has plenty of other cringe worthy lyrics. To some, it appeared to be another record in which the thrash icons failed to diversify their songwriting. Unlike Anthrax, who still maintained some semblance of traditional heavy metal within the abject inferiority of their groove metal releases, Slayer has basically embraced the popular concept of nu-metal/mallcore here and attempted to merge it with some remnants of their older Thrash style. 314 586 332-2; CD). Tom Araya's vocals are violent screaming all the time; yeah, sometimes there's too much screaming and you can't listen to them if you have a headache, but I kinda rather like the screaming than some of the his "singing" on Seasons in the Abyss (the album). Score: 85 / 100, Haha, door deze CD ging ik naar Metal (en Slayer!!) “Bloodline” is the weakest song here, due to, again, how slow it is, the weak lyrics, and the lazy riffs. He sounds pretty tired on this album for the most part. strive for peace with acts of war It's well play and the first thing that comes to mind is that Tom yells like a madman, the voice is too distorted. Bostaph’s drumming is loud – much louder than the guitars – and overpowers everything except the vocals. Onder Reign in Blood, but it sure is better than this of.
