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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
