Biography

In the beginning, when there were no blueprints, no set paths, no boundaries or steps to follow, Slayer assaulted the world with its new hybrid of metal and punk. Heavier, faster and darker than the rest, Slayer set the new standard which all others continue to follow. Slayer - Tom Araya/bass and vocals, Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and Dave Lombardo/drums - is the band that other ... Read more in Amazon's Slayer Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Slayer are the world's top thrash metal band. 2 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite Slayer album. The drum sound is a marked improvement from 'Seasons' and Paul Bostaph makes incredibly difficult drum parts sound effortless. The album seems to be based on the theme of serial killers ('213' is based on the story of Jeff Dahmer) but this doesn't detract from very fast, very chromatic riffs and virtuoso guitar solos from Jeff Hanneman & Kerry King. Tom Araya's vocals range from screamed imprecations to really attractive tunes (Serenity in Murder) and provides an ideal accompaniment to the underlying rhythm mazes. The album for me also scores highly on the use of unusual time signatures and angular key changes. For Slayer, true beauty lies in dissonance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a try! 3 Nov 2002
By Mark
Format:Audio CD
This album is often seen as one of the band's worst studio outings (Undisputed Attitude getting the accolade of actually being the worst) but listen carefully and you'll find some excellent gems embedded.
Many people often say "Ditto Head is the only good track on it and the rest is crap" well, they are quite wrong really!
The albums opening track "Killing Fields" shows that this album is taking the band down a new path, walking away from their classic thrash metal which they are known mostly for. The track has some excellent riffs in it and is an easy standout.
Others that also stand out are the excellent "Sex.Murder.Art" along with "Serenity In Murder" and "Circle Of Beliefs" and yes, of course the absolute main stand out, the classic "Ditto Head" which has some amazing tremelo riffing and a brilliant solo.
One thing that does let this album down though, is the not very sharp production, sounding a tad muffled at times.
It's worth a try, even if just for "Ditto Head" and "Killing Fields".

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated classic 21 Mar 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Following the indisputably all-time classic thrash albums of Reign In Blood, South Of Heaven and Seasons In The Abyss, a lot of Slayer fans seem to write off Divine Intervention as a misfire, but in my opinion to do so would be a grave mistake. The most obvious difference this time around is in the line-up of the band, with original drummer Dave Lombardo having been sacked and replaced with Forbidden's Paul Bostaph. While at the time Lombardo was considered the most talented drummer around Bostaph completely technically outclasses him on this album, and by the end of the whirlwind drums on opener Killing Fields you'll be saying "Dave who"? In fact the biggest difference as far as the music goes is the division of writing credits - normally Jeff Hanneman is the driving force behind Slayer's music, but for some reason in the long gap between Seasons In The Abyss and Divine Intervention the balance of power has shifted, and now Kerry King has a writing or co-writing credit for all but one song on the album, which leads to a different feel, with the emphasis less on classic metal riffs now and more on weird time signatures and rhythms. The production is unquestionably the best of Slayers career thus far, with the crispness and clarity of the sound only increasing the heaviness. As on the last couple of albums the tracks range from the full-on speed attacks of Sex, Murder, Art and Dittohead to such slow moody songs as the title track (which features Tom Araya's best vocal performance ever as he really yells out the verses) and 213, an attempt to replicate the success of Season's Dead Skin Mask, this time writing about Jeffrey Dahmer rather than Ed Gein.

4.0 out of 5 stars God doesn't hate Slayer 14 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Slayer recieved a slating on the release of this album by most reviewers. This stands as the one Slayer album you should avoid (apart from Undisputed Attitude which wasn't really a proper Slayer album) accordin to just about everyone I have talked to who likes Slayer. I disagree completely. I believe this to be one of the strongest offerings from the band.
In light of later releases, Diabolus... and God Hates Us all, this may have a more polished, safer sounding sheen to it but it is by far a more interesting album.
Killing Fields is trademark Slayer with drum work that, at first, sounds ridiculous but manages to keep up with the guitars so well it is quite mind boggling. It sounds far too difficult to play. Sex Murder Art and Dittohead are great 2 minute slices of pure power Slayer that bring memories of Reign in Blood flooding back. Fictional Reality, 213 and Serenity in Murder sound like tracks that would have fit very nicely in Seasons.. or South.. No bad thing. But it's tracks like the title track and Circle of Belief that pull the album above the succeeding two. They contain both pulse-pounding rapid-firing thrash and slower sections that bring in traces of melody and rythm.
It doesn't completely work as an album but it is the most accessible unaccessible album I have heard, if you get me. By no means another Reign in Blood but that's a good thing. People have been waiting for Slayer to redo that seminal album ever since it was released. They never will. I'm afraid they peaked with Reign.. and South... and Season. But Divine Intervention is the one Slayer album that both defines the true sound of Slayer and also comes across as if it could have been put together by a tribute band. Slayer for beginners. But what a wonderful spring board to the heights they have reached.
