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 Dangerous to the general public. 9 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
By the time 1994 had come along, extreme metal had reached the pinnacle of extremity. Revolting lyrics, objectionable artwork and band behavior couldn't have conceivably and would not get any worse.
Slayer, one of the earliest and most influential pioneers of the genre were beginning to lose relative credibility, that is untill they released this album. In my opinion, the mood or tone of this album is dangerously subversive. While the music was not heavy by the standards of the day, there was an immense subliminal aggression hidden inside the music. Unlike any other band I have ever heard, this aggressive nihilistic tone had an unsettling reality to it. This illusion of reality was heigthened by the inlay card which demonstrated real life examples of fictional portrayals of violence becoming real actual physical violence.
Life was imitating art, Slayer knew it and most of them lived with that fact quite comfortably. This is all the more unsettling when one considers the prevailing subject matter here: murder (213, ..murder art, killing fields). Perhaps fortunately for society, Slayer wouldn't fuel the fire so vigourously in their later albums. Musically, this is top quality, heavy, fast slayer. In my opinion it is the last true descendant from 'Reign in Blood' and in many ways the quality here supercedes that found on that record. 'Dittohead' and 'Killing fields' are by far more heavy than anything the band had released before and, dare I say it, Dittohead is a more powerfull song than 'Angel of Death'. This is a much more real, disturbing and violent Slayer than on any of their previous records and from what I see this album is still underappreciated.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad God intervened 11 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

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".
