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

A lot of people and fans will say that this is the point where Slayer dropped their game. I disagree. This is as good, both technically and artistically, as any of their previous 2 efforts. In fact it is probably the only album that it can be true to say has elements of both South of Heaven/Seasons in the Abyss and Reign in Blood (especially as every advertisement for everything they have done since God Hates Us All purports this to be true). It has the energy and passion of Reign ('Dittohead', 'Sex, Murder, Art') with the melody and thoughtfulness of South ('Fictional Reality', '213'). It's not all great. 'SS-3' treads water slightly and 'Mind Control' is more the closer you're likely to find on recent albums than say 'Raining Blood' or 'Seasons in the Abyss', but they both shred most of the 'good' tracks on recent albums into dust.

'Killing Fields' is such a change of tack for them. It almost takes your breath away. It's lumpen, raw, catchy as hell and actually quite scary, not to mention the excellent drumming and powerful lungs of Mr Araya. In my opinion as good as 'War Ensemble' and I'd happily argue the fact. Then 'Sex, Murder, Art' thumps in at breakneck speed. This is now the realisation that Slayer have refound their roots and are willing to thrash their fans to death! Then the catchy 'Fictional Reality' strums into view quite happily and, while it is not a classic as such, it is a welcome, almost upbeat reprieve after the aural assault of the first 2 tracks. This does not last long as 'Dittohead' thunders toward you like that rolling ball of stone after Indiana Jones, but with lots of snakes and Nazis and devil-worshippers following on behind it.

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.

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".

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.Read more ›
