Product Description


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


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

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.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars A good record Oct. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars ????????????????????? March 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
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. IMO there is not a bad song on the cd. Stain Of Mind & Death's Head are my favorites but believe me, the whole thing rocks!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare I say...Slayer's best? May 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Slayer fan before Reign in Blood broke all the rules regarding thrash, ferocity, and brutality. South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss remain masterpieces, worthy of continued praise. Than along comes Diabolus in Musica! Many "so called" die-hard Slayer fans complained the band comprised its roots by aiming this disc towards nu-metal fans. A veteran band like Slayer can't re-cycle music that shows a regression in ability. They needed to re-invent themselves, while not alienating thier fan base. Diabolus is Slayer! Powerfull, heavy as hell, brutal, and dare I say, they have incorporated some "groove". They have not comprised any of the savage approach that has made them the KINGS of metal. Standouts include: Bitter Piece, Stain of Mind, and Scrum. Is this their best album, I don't know, the album just kicks ASS!

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to brutality April 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is quite easily a classic slayer lp.the opening almost sabbath like riff on bitter peace knocks the hell out of anyone who thought they could sleep in whilst listening to this album!the next four tracks take on the form of the original thrashy slayer sound meets system of a down style timing. paul bostaph is in his element on this album as tracks like point and scrum will show.tom araya even delves into new vocal territory using pitchshifters and mild distortion to add further crunch n power to his already bone shaking voice.mr king n mr hannemann play at thier usual frantic pace but i feel that the solos lack what songs like angel of death and dead skin mask held dear to every slayer fans heart-pure noise!overall this is a great album,the highlight definately being point.all await the lp!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil in Music April 19 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than some,worse than others
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 more
