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

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.Read more ›
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?Published on June 9 2013 by Langer

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.Published on Oct. 3 2004 by ScaryGuy666

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 morePublished on March 13 2004 by G. Melton
This cd is alittle more diverse than their previous albums. If it was heavier I would of gave it 5 stars. Still nice speed metal by one of the best thrash/metal bands out there. Read morePublished on March 12 2004 by Alex
This CD is not bad once you get used to it. The best song on here in my opinion is Stain of Mind. It does have a more darker theme with the music than the others do. Read morePublished on Feb. 20 2004
