Product Description

Amazon.ca

After pretty much inventing and pioneering death metal in the early '80s, Slayer spent years playing as fast and with as much intensity as they could muster. But after 1986's pinnacle of death, Reign in Blood, the band decided to explore the slower side of intense volume, so it tempered the tempos and indulged in a darker, more atmospheric sound. But with 1994's Divine Intervention, the band proved it could still race to the finish line. Somewhat messier than much of their earlier output, the record makes up in brutality whatever it lacks in precision. If "Killing Fields," "Circle of Belief," and "Sex, Murder, Art" quicken the pulse, the hardcore velocity-fest "Dittohead" will cause the heart to explode in showers of Divine gore. Not for the timid. --Jon Wiederhorn

Product Description

Slayer's 1994 album Divine Intervention boasted songs about Jeffrey Dahmer ("213," his apartment number) and Reinhard Heydrich ("SS-3") amongst other themes of murder and the evils of church and government.

5.0 out of 5 stars bow before the gods May 18 2004
By AOI
Format:Audio CD
Feeling compelled late at night to offer forth my two cents worth, since for some horrible reason there isn't a review of this record (maybe infamy is enough), so... After four years between studio offerings, the spawns of hell return unabated, ferocious and blood hungry as ever. By no means a bad thing, this is a typical Slayer album full of all those 120db subtleties and nuances that we've all come to know and love. No sh*t, the power and aggression of these guys is incredible, and when all those metal mainstays are busy writing sh*tty records and making themselves look like a bad U2 joke as they age (Metallica: just sell what little soul you kept and get it over with, thanks for scamming us with that "load" of sh*te), these guys beat you over the head with some of their heaviest production and songs that slide nicely into the catalogue like they were always there. Almost hard to believe they're on a major label. Ten years later I still spin this disk on a regular basis, it's seminility only challenged by that breathtaking "in the nightside eclipse" album those Emperor boys put out that same fateful year. What more is there to say? Anyone remotely interested in what metal is supposed to be (as in not written to sell records, for example) NEEDS this disk, since it does a pretty damn good job of actualizing my definition. One of the few old bands left in the genre that still deserve the "metal" moniker (thanks for "youthanising" your band, Dave). Light a doob, grab a shot and watch the sky turn red, fellow hellions. This is why you call yourselves metalheads, and this is what your parents warned you about. Now go. You have commerce to perform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back From The Abyss April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is another favorite Slayer album in my collection and like any Slayer album, it always delivers. There's never been a bad album when it's released under the band name Slayer. This is the first one with drummer Paul Bastaph who was in Forbidden before joining Slayer. While in Forbidden, he smoked and in Slayer, he smokes even more. With this album, it's an entirely new direction for the band. Not to worry, the intensity, heaviness, brutality and pulverizing assault is still here but the lyrical content is full of real life themes instead of the satanic, evil lyrics and images of the past. The band is still as aggressive as ever but the lyrical content is different. There's no flowers and happy stuff because the dark image is still there and it will always be. The themes here deal with war, war crimes, mind manipulation, rape, murder and violence. It's everything a Slayer fan ever could ask for. Some of my favorite songs here are Killing Fields, Dittohead, Divine Intervention, Serenity In Muder and 213 which is my favorite. Buy this and prepare for some divine intervention of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ongoing repeatable several times Feb. 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album goes so fast that when it starts over you didn't know it because you're still thrashing to it. Reign in Blood really isn't that great to me. It's too short. By the time it starts over on repeat you know you've just heard that song or that song and you're soon sick of it. Show No Mercy is utterly bad to me. Seasons isn't very fast but it's enjoyable like reign in blood and longer. Divine's Fictional reality is hard to not skip but I think that's because late night radio thrash shows play it too much. Must Buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slayer's downside Feb. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This Cd to me just seems bland for some reason. I get bored listening to it. There seems to be nothing that really stands out on it like other Slayer CDs do. Some say Diablous was not their best but i disagree i think this one was not their best effort. There was nothing to get your attention on this one. If all Slayer CDS were like this one i would not listen to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about this one Jan. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Slayer fan for almost 15 years now, and I clearly remember how in a promo-interview after "Seasons in the Abyss" was released in 1990 Tom Araya promised, that from that year on they would release a new album every year, because they felt very creative. And then... BANG! Dave Lombardo left the band, and there was 4 years of silence.
Upon listening to this record, on one hand, I was really happy to have yet another violent thrash record by my favourite band at that time. On the other, something was missing. That something was the diversity of the drums that only Lombardo could provide. I'm not saying that Paul Bostaph is a bad drummer, no way, but he has certain limitations. These limitations lead Slayer into more punkish/hardcore realm with their music. Like "Seasons in the Abyss" crossed with something like D.R.I. With that change, the vocal style has changed too, to more hardcore angry tone, and again, diversity was lost on the way.
While I like most of the songs offered here, some of them just don't glue with me. And seeing how this path ultimately has broought Slayer to an utter disgrace in form of "God Hates Us All", I can only sigh, because "Divine Intervention" proves that, while pleasantly violent, it's not classic Slayer any more, and never will there be.
