"God hates us all" is the cheery message delivered by heavy metal mongers Slayer during War at the Warfields, and with their emphasis on themes such as violence and death, Satanism and necrophilia, this is clearly not a band that will appeal to fans of, say Kenny G. Still, it's a safe bet that none of the thousands who crammed into San Francisco's Warfield Theatre in December 2001 to scream, thrash, mosh and headbang for this 90-minute show went home unhappy. But then, why would they? Loud, fast, ultra-aggressive, relentlessly anti-melodic music doesn't come any harder than this; Slayer's energy is undeniable, as is the catharsis they provide their fans. And if the band (at least bassist-singer Tom Araya) seems to take it all a tad less seriously than their young, hollow-eyed, nihilistic adherents (many of whom are interviewed in a 50-minute documentary featured in the DVD bonus material), well, that's show biz. --Sam Graham

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another fine piece of Slayer art. 12 July 2004
For a long time i have wanted a decent Slayer live DVD, and this is it. Filmed in San Francisco during the 'god hates us all' tour, this is truely a work of art. Any Slayer fan will truly appreciate this, the sound quality and camera work are excellent and it is a no frills dvd. Slayer rattle through 20 of their finest tracks and all the classics are there as well as some of their new tracks from the tour album. This is well worth the cost that amazon are offering and I guarantee any Slayer fan or indeed thrash metal fan will not be disapointed by this - a true epic. However your neighbours may not appreciate it though. 5*.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slayer - War at the Warfields 5 Jan 2004
I've never really been a fan of live recorded performances i don't feel its the same as really being there, the sound quality of the performance never really comes across, but having said that, as a true Slayer fan for some 14 years i purchased this dvd, the production is very good especially if you take advantage of it on a cinema surround system, i was dissappointed not to see any material from Divine Intervention after all this was the album that bought Slayer back to the glory days of Reign in Blood, it would also would of been nice to have a few more extras than there are on the disc, more features focusing on the band members instead of pulling clips of some the numbest fans they could find which really does not in my mind show a true representation of Slayer fans, we are not all mindlest idiots. So putting my gripes aside for a moment,this is a worth while purchase, but i wait with baited breath for Soundtrack to the Apocolypse!!

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing dvd, shame about the fans! 21 Feb 2005
This was bought to me as a present and i think it's amazing, the only thing that lets it down is the commentarys with the fans, who all seem a bit daft. having seen slayer play live on at least 4 occasions i can say this dvd lives up to the experience of seeing them. Slayer always put on a great show, they just come on and do what they do best. with over 20 years experience they know how to come out and play their tunes with the enthusiasm you'd expect them to have in their earlier years. The sound and tightness of this dvd pay justice to that. the variation in tunes from their albums make this a great all rounder for any slayer fan and the quality of the dvd makes your viewing experience all the better. buy this dvd, put it on and play it loud, then appreciate slayer for how great they are!

5.0 out of 5 stars Slaytanic : nothing better 24 Feb 2004
This DVD shows Slayer in their greatest form, with 19 songs, a documentary on the fans, the MTV refused video for 'Bloodline' and a photo gallery.
The songs are all great, Disciple, Stain Of Mind, Raining Blood, Bloodline, War Ensemble, Dead Skin Mask and Angel Of Death being my favourites, but the rest are all superb. It is true that Kerry King cannot be heard as well as Jeff Hanneman, but that is because his sound is much more the bottom end and bassier sound, while Jeff comes out with more mids and treble, more attack. Thsi does mean that you can hear Jeff more clearly than Kerry, but you can still hear Kerry fine in my view.
The documentary is strange, it just shows the midly insane Slayer fans that they come across, with comments from the band as well. The banned video and gallery are worthy entries as well.
Slayer are supreme kings of thrash/speed metal, and this DVD compliments them perfectly. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars You know what you get with Slayer 1 Aug 2003
If you have been to a Slayer concert, then you know exactly what to expect. It's always intense, always loud and they usually manage to pack in all your favourites. As with the live sets, this DVD has lots of your must listens on it, look at that track list! So far so good. Negative points? Some rather dire snippets from interviews with Slayer fans. Some boring, some really make you cringe (the kid saying it makes him want to, like, rip the picture of the wall man). Some of the camera work was mistimed, (a shot of Jeff's fretboard when Kerry is playing the solo), or switching shots just before Tom starts singing. but on the whole, it captures the atmosphere perfectly. You can see all your favourites from a Slayer gig there, including the psycho fat bald bloke in the mosh pit, ugly rock chick with geeky boyfriend, topless sweaty guy, etc.
If you love Slayer, and have a good home cinema set-up, this is great fun :)

5.0 out of 5 stars thrash metal at its best 3 April 2014
This is is one of the first dvds I got of Slayer unfortunatly I never got to see them live in the flesh and with the passing of Jeff Hanneman an experience sadly missed but with this dvd can now relive every moment it has got to be the best live concert on film apart from reign in blood live from the opening song to the last we are blasted with the best songs ever concieved trying to pick a favourite is near impossible as every song hits the point if you have never seen them live you need to own this treasure trove of songs this is trash metal at its best.
