Not to say it was bad, but it certainly could not hold up to the classics. Slayer - God Hates Us All They put on a real good show. June 25, 2001, 19 years ago (Sony) Martin Popoff. I'll kill you and your dreams tonight His drumming is tight with fluid fills and lots of short double bass accents. Then the sound changes again: seven faces sounds very good, with an agressive doom-riff (remembers me of gates of slumber). Where is my copy of "Show No Mercy"? Exile Cast Down is misplaced mallcore worship, with that completely fucking awful vocal delivery. My personal answer is no. God Hates Us All ist das vorerst letzte Album der Band, auf dem Paul Bostaph am Schlagzeug zu hören ist. Reactie van Een_Metalfan op 17-08-2004 om 21:42u, Slayer - God Hates Us All Now the songs themselves aren't bad, but the problem is that a lot of them (including the good ones) aren't anything that stand out as amazing or even memorable (except Disciple, New Faith (but for all the wrong reasons), Exile, and Seven Faces). Er zijn bands die harder rossen maar er zijn ook zeker bands die softer zijn! On. Overall, while a big step up from Diabolus In Musica, Slayer still needed to get their heads out of their asses if they wanted to restore what little credibility they had left at this point. Clawing at the eyes of god 314 586 332-2; CD). They are loud and inescapable. Threshold? The first half is ultimately superior; only “God Send Death” is weak in the first seven tracks, but after that only “War Zone” and “Payback” are really worth it. You spineless fucking maggot - you're just wasting my time The chorus is catchy as fuck, “God Hates Us All!” After the first chorus comes a solo. I don't mind swearing in music, but swearing for swearing's sake as is done on songs like Exile and Payback comes off as fake as a plastic grille on a cheap mid-80's oldsmobile or plastic sunglasses at a ZZ top concert. It's not quite the worst thing on here though. Bloodline is a typical song on this album, then the next 3 songs are pure agression and hate, Deviance, war zone and Here comes the pain. Metalfan.nl - Metal nieuws, reviews, interviews en meer... Dat Kerry in verschillende interviews zei dat hij de laatste tijd veel naar Slipknot luisterde en daardoor beïnvloed is, wordt Slayer kwalijk genomen. The drumming becomes boring and slow and the riffs become shitty and boring, in vein with bands such as Slipknot. It's for the best he changed his voice, or it would have been emberassing. The first song, Disciple, is by far the best song on here. God Hates Us All is full of these sorts of riffs, for better or worse. and so on. I didn't think it to be possible, but they fucked up a thrash break, turning it into more idiotic Hatebreed-styled screaming. All these staccato parts on the one hand and the groove elements on the other hand shit on the rare old school moments. But hey, at least they throw in that two-note Raining Blood riff. So I try to see "God Hates Us All" independent from the old Slayer records. Not that they are expected to release the same material from the past, but at least they could have made it better! There's a reason the band only really plays Disciple at their live shows, because looking back, it's easy to see that effort was put into these songs, it's just that they don't feel complete, or the instrumentation feels out of place with what the boys were trying to convey through the song's lyrical meaning. Araya probeert gewoon te zingen op deze............. een 60 omdat ze Slayer heten.... Heren van MetallicA en Slayer: MAAK ALSJEBLIEFT JULLIE 2E MASTER OP PUPPETS OF REIGN IN BLOOD.....! "God Hates Us All" is very heavy, and it's cool that Slayer still has so much agression after so many years. Cool effects at 1:58 do not help it. Some songs go straight for thrash (Payback, War Zone), some go for groove (Here Comes The Pain, Bloodline), and others manage to mix them together (God Send Death, New Faith). After this one they want to make you sleep again before the end with Here Comes The Pain, after a boring intro with Jeff and Kerry taking fun on their wah pedals we come into a song which really looks like a slow Hatebreed's song with Tom yelling at the chorus. The drumming is one of the high points of the album. Everybody blames Kerry King for writing crappy song, but I feel everybody in the band should take the brunt as well for having released the song at their consent. Not to mention the lameness of flops such as "Deviance". Slayer are one of the very few bands that are able to stay true to their heavy roots and still naturally progress, even after all these years. This is the only studio album of theirs which really is not worth having. I mean this song has more riffs than the rest of the album combined, but fucken A, what sort of genius came up with screaming "yargh, new faith" a few times at the ... end? But it sure is better than Diabolus in Musica. That's what music is all about...progression, evolution and the attempt to discover a new direction. Tom Araya's vocals appear as though they have completely gone down the shitter (not true, he is still halfway decent live, but I think after listening to that distortion for a few minutes, even my hair turned orange and even my pants baggified themselves! A good solo. Reactie van Een_Metalfan op 11-01-2005 om 21:55u. The lyrical department is well-studied, especially the tracks dealing with the themes of religion have interesting lyrics. Riiiiight. There are some people out there, however, who do not like God Hates Us All. While the book God Hates Us All does remind me a lot of Hank Moody and his self destructive lifestyle in the TV show Californication. Slayer – God Hates Us All (2001) “God doesn’t hate.
