Slayer is back with yet another strong album's worth of speed, blood, and more blood! In my opinion, their strongest album since "Diabolus in Musica". Favorite trax are "Beauty Through Order" & "Hate Worldwide" & "Human Strain". Lyrics are intense throughout the album, including comments on the planets' oil controversies on "Americon".
The bonus DVD (Limited Edition only) includes a 20 minute graphic video "Playing with Dolls", written and directed by Mark Brooks. Story of a young boy who discovers his mother killed and in her own pool of blood. He grows up with deep personal issues, I mean deep, and reconciles himself by trying to bring his mother back, by using the various body parts of the women he has killed. Blood, Blood and more Blood.
Be warned, it is quite intense and a little disturbing. Seeing a nun get whacked across the head with a huge cross, hmmm. If you're a big Slayer fan, than this is something you'd probably like to have and should have as the packaging and double digipack is quite impressive. Otherwise, the DVD is not something you would watch more than once.
