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.
This CD also has some of the creepiest, sickest and darkest lyrics in Slayer's catalog. 213 is about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer... The title of Sex, Murder, Art pretty much explains the song.
The musicianship on the entire album is incredible. Paul Bostaph's drum attack at the beginning of Killing Fields is mind-blowing, making it into one of the greatest intros ever. Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman provide some excellent riffs and solos, and Tom Araya just enhances the music with his bass lines and incredible vocals. This 36 minute set of anger, rage and aggression is sure to please any hardcore metal fan.

Great thrash effort from a band that I love. Amazing live show, killer songwriting, generally a great performance. If you like Slayer, get this onePublished on Nov. 27 2012 by Langer
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. Read morePublished on Feb. 24 2004

Unlike albums that came after it, Divine Intervention maintains the Slayer sound of their earlier discs. Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2003 by Ghost of Metal Past
While this outing is a bit of a letdown from the OUTSTANDING Seasons in the Abyss, Divine Intervention is a worthwhile CD. Read morePublished on Dec 18 2002 by D.G. Campbell
