Ok, Ignore the negative reviews. This is Slayer's best album in years, I realise that's a cliche but they have really made the effort this time.

Their recent output hasn't been the best, God Hates us all had a few moments, Christ Illusion was pure dirt and it's fair to say my expectations for this were quite low. So it was a pleasant surprise to find myself being blown away by the album; and it hasn't left the CD player since.

The album opens with the title track; very atmospheric introduction complete with military style snare drumming (Lombardos performance throughout the album is phenomenal)before heading into more familiar thrash metal territory, however the difference here is there are a couple of quite effective groove sections before heading into a spoken word mid section, the track then picks up for the finale by revisiting the verses only this time 10 times as intense. A truely epic track at almost 6 minutes.

Unit 731 - Incredibaly fast + agressive track dealing with some scary subject matter. Musically this reminds me of some of the more punkish elements of the Reign in Blood album, the track is short and relentless.

Snuff - Another fast numbner, opening with a string of solos recalling Captor Of Sin, Verse is mid paced, along the lines of Epidemic, before the song opens up with some fantastic riffing for the chorus.

Beauty through order - this is Slayer at their most atmospheric, think Divine Intervention, Dead Skin Mask, Spill the Blood. Great clean singing from Araya and there are numerous shifts in mood and tempo in this one. I hope they make a video for this.

Hate Worldwide - Another Kerry King effort, this one recalls Black Magic and deals with familiar satanic themes.

Things you need to know about me. I worship Slayer from Reign in Blood to Seasons in the Abyss. Since then they have made the odd good track but nothing really has inspired me. Even last years Christ Illusion with DL back behind the drums I found it boring and I lost interest very quickly. I don't just like metal and it never bothered me too much that Slayer lost their way. I am not a blinkered Slayer fan who just likes metal so therefore is giving out 5 gold stars just because they turn up to the studio.

Things you need to know about this album. Araya gives the best vocal performance since Seasons and this is why WPB is easily their best since then, one of the main reasons why I loved Slayer was Arayas voice, it's back and I love it! Hanneman makes an effort to write excellent songs, this in turn makes Kerry King write better songs as he needs to up his game. Araya also has song writing credits, and I believe this is why this album is top-notch. Also a lot of songs they work on together just like they did on SITA. Every song maybe the age old Slayer material but here it is attacked with vitality and energy.

The production! This is under a lot of scrutiny since Mr Fieldman produced Death Magnetic. For me Death Magnetics production was inferior and I maybe no audiophille but I didn't like it at all. Funny that when I played this album (vinyl version) this was forefront of my mind. And to be honest I think I gave it too much thought which did cloud my judgment on the first few listens. Don't worry about it. Yes I have to turn my bass dial up to thicken the sound but after a few listens you start to appreciate this album for what it is. And that is Slayer on top-form. And that ladies and gentlemen is a reason to celebrate.

This Album is a return to hard-core punk influences for Slayer as the album has a much rawer sound than the last few releases. It took me a few listens to get into the album but I love it now, I guess that it grew on me. The guitar sound is not as aggressive as previous efforts but Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman are still delivering the goods on this album. Tom's vocals are more Hard core punk in delivery and his bass work is as flawless as ever. Dave Lombardo's drumming is also top notch. The only real problem that I have with this album is the production as it is a little muddy. The packaging is really dramatic and striking to look at. The album comes in a blood red see through slipcase that holds a high quality matt finish digi pack. The cover folds out into a world map made of blood and skulls which is right up my street. You also get a DVD that has a 20 min animated graphic novel based on the songs of the album. The movie is really intense and thought provoking, most people would consider it very sick but I see it as a reflection of the times that we are living in. This album is worth buying as it is an all round winner.

Slayer are one of those bands that when they release an album, even if it is on a sunday morning you will get yourself down to local record retailer to make sure you have a copy as soon as the doors open, true the dedication of fans with Slayer is extraordinary, many of which have been with the band since the 1980"s as well as many younger audiences finding out what the fuss is all about. With "World painted blood" they will find out much of what slayer is about by for by the most part 10-12 brutal songs.

And this album is brutal just like the rest of their "for the most part" sublime catalogue, however this time with "World painted blood' similarly with their previous opus "Christ illusion" slayer have incorporated some of their older 80"s sound here to compliment their new album greatly and to be fair it works, similarly the production is dealt with a caretake attitude even if it does sound different to what we have been used to recently by them.

Many of the songs here draw at least an influence from past glories "Playng with dolls" is a great spooky atmospheric track and i can vividly recall a seasons in the abyss vibe, but it's a good track none-the-less, ''Americon, Phychopathy red and Unit 731" hark back to the best slices from "Divine intervention" with some some speedy and vicious/intense chorus lines, in any case those three have a real good strong hook that just seems to draw you in, both are undoubtably one of, if not the best tracks here without a doubt, elsewhere "Snuff" is another speed-by-numbers song which will have you on the edge of your seat during its play.
