2.0 out of 5 stars Decidedly average, 16 April 2010
This review is from: Christ Illusion (Audio CD)
I am a Slayer fan. Not one of these meatheads you see who scream "SLAAAAAAAAAAAAYER" at every metal gig you go to... even when Slayer aren't there... but I'm still a fan. Fan, not worshipper, I admit they have done poor albums; and here's one of em. When I heard the song "Jihad" I was really fired up for this album, I thought I was in for a bonafide thrash fest... I was very mistaken.

So, how does it sound? There's not really a problem with the production or anything, it's more or less standard Slayer. But the quality of the songs is just... eugh. Jihad is by miles the best song in my humble opinion... nothing else here even touches it. Eyes of the Insane is the song Slayer chose for a single... it's a rubbish song and they made a rubbish video for it. I just expect better from Slayer, I really do. This album is a big letdown, even with "Supremist" and the fact that "OMGZZZZZZZ IT'Z GOT A BLASTBEATZ IN ITZ!!!" Nobody cares. Load of tosh.

Vocals are standard mid-range shouty Tom Araya... no problems there really... just a bit boring.

I'd recommend this to those Slayer Meatheads because they will love it anyway. I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone else... unless you're after buying a really average album for some reason.

'one of these meatheads you see who scream "SLAAAAAAAAAAAAYER" '

Yes, finally, a sane person. You have my helpful vote for that observation.
