Product Description

Review

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

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars Feb. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was scared there for a while. Not scared in the way most death metal bands would have you cower in fear from their leather spikes and grease paint, but scared like the paint would come off and reveal the washed up faces of Metallica or Dokken beneath. With the release of the single "Stain Of Mind" a month or so ago, Slayer had the entire metal community Clutching their stomachs and groaning at the inherent Korniness of it all, and with good reason: the "duh-DUH duh-DUH duh-DUH duh-DUH DUH-DUH" riff that opens the song and is featured prominently throughout is textbook '90s metal cum hardcore. Metal bands today learn this riff like rock bands in the '60s learned "Louie Louie" or Chuck Berry licks (such as the oft-copied intro to "Roll Over Beethoven"). But no one ever had the veracity to copy those riffs outright, which Slayer have done shamelessly with "Stain Of Mind". It should come as no surprise, therefore, when even the most faithful fans are biting their nails in earnest awaiting the rest of the album. Listening to the song in the context of the rest of their new album, Diabolus In Musica, it's still difficult to tell whether it was a joke or not. There are traces of modern hardcore-influenced metal throughout several of the album's eleven tracks, but nothing approaching the funky rapcore vibe of "Stain Of Mind".
History will probably show that it was a huge mistake on Slayer's part to release "Stain Of Mind" as the first single, especially so many weeks before the album actually arrived. Fans have had a few months now to debate the integrity of the band in today's musical climate, and the trepidation which has been instilled in even the hardcore fans will cause many to exaggerate the derivative nature of Diabolus In Machina's remaining ten tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil in Music April 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, we all know that this isn't Slayer's greatest CD. But it still has some kick@$$ songs. As another review said the song bitter peace is like a roller coaster. That is a perfect description of the song. Slayer made the song about The India-Pakistan conflicts and about how you can't stop the fighting. Yes the first 5 songs are great, and after that it seems like a slow decline. I would say that songs like Love to Hate and In the Name of God are very good too. But it's very difficult to listen to the album the whole way through without wanting something new. Especially with songs like Screaming from the Sky. That song seems to annoy me during the chorus. Now people say that this album is too "nu metal". I disagree. The influence of nu-metal is something like 2-5 percent. I only consider it nu-metal if there is rap (clearly not) and if there are no solos (obviously not, this is Slayer). The sounds of the guitars are the only thing that seems to crawl up peoples butts. It doesn't bug me at all and if you listen to a variety of heavy music it shouldn't bother you either. The 2 B-sides that are available on Imports are also very good. Wicked is a slow 6 minute song where as Unguarded Instinct is very fast and should have been on the album. Hope this helped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bitter Peace! Sept. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think pretty much everyone else who wrote a review on this C.D is a STUPID IDIOT. I love everything about Diabolus In Musica, the agression, the heaviness, ARAYA'S LYRICS. I love the old Slayer as well, but you can't get much better than this. "Bitter Peace" is the best opener EVER. Beats the hell out of "Angel Of Death". The intro to "Bitter Peace" is awesome, Bostaph's drumming is so great! Its very heavy. "Death's Head" isn't the greatest on the album, BUT Araya's bass is. "Stain Of Mind" is the next best. Araya's lyrics are catchy for once, but hasn't lost his voice. "Overt Enemy" should be one of the greatest songs ever. From start to finish its a classic Slayer song. "Perversions Of Pain" sure is heavy. It's very fast and angry, sounds like something off "God Hates Us All". I LOVE "LOVE TO HATE"!!! Another catchy lyrics song. Just as heavy as the others. I love the bass and King's solo is jaw-dropping. You think the songs going to end after it. But NO. Another great verse. C.D highlight for sure. "Desire" a bit softer and sounds like "South Of Heaven". Its a great song. Now the album goes from the softest song to the heaviest, and coolest. "In The Name Of God" is another stand out song on Diabolus. I Don't like "Scrum" too much. But yet again, the song after is great. "Screaming From The Sky" is cool as, and it has that voice-talking thing from "South Of Heaven" half way through the song. "Point" is a bit annoying, but picks up half way through it. But Bitter Peace, Death's Head, Stain Of Mind, Overt Enemy, Love To Hate, Desire, In The Name Of God and Screaming From the Sky are all Metal Classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Divine Reinvention Feb. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
For the people who call Slayer a sellout listen up. Selling out is making your music more accesible for radio and mainstream (Black Album prime example). Yet if they would've stayed the same they would've gotten the AC/DC tag which is release the same repititive sound album after album and not challenge their fans musically or lyrically whatsoever.
Tom (as well as the rest of the band) sounded really tired and old on Divine Intervention. Now maybe it was Paul Bosteph finding his place or bad production but either way it was not a good Slayer album. This album however Tom sounds refreshed and stronger than ever especially on tracks like Perversions of Pain and In the Name of God. Lyrically some tracks are just flat out sick and twisted but what else do you expect from Tom?
The band experiments with a lot of new sounds and speeds with this release. Bitter Peace is a great opener to slowly take the listener to an onslaught of terror. Stain of Mind is a very grooving and pounding that leaves you begging for more. The big highlight by Paul, Kerry, Tom, and Jeff are Perversions of Pain which is just a fast crushing track that reminds of you of the early thrash days with better production.
Unfortunately this would be the first and last great album with Paul Bosteph as God Hates Us All just came off real corny lyrically.

Criticized for being a little nu-metal, this album does lack a little. Bostaph is a great drummer, but come on, no Lombardo?

It's a cool record. Not up with the best of Slayer, but it's still pretty cool. Evil grooves, awesome bass, and Tom's signature sadistic growl. If you like Slayer, this is for you.

Why does this cd get all the negative reviews? I think this 1998 release is one of their best, and I own all of them. It jams in typical Slayer style from start to finish. Read more
