Anyone in here big Slayer fans? I am, and I felt like making a thread so all of us can discuss them. I'll start this thing off by asking, what are some of your favorite riffs from Slayer songs?

Chop Suey!
11-24-2004, 06:33 PM
Angel Of Death!

I agree, that song and riff is awesome, anytime I go into a guitar shop, that's one of the things i'll play, and everyone stops and listens, even though it isn't even that hard, haha.

I like the tremolo bit at the end of Postmortem, The main bit in Raining Blood, the solo from Angel of Death, and that bit of riff right before the solo...

I have War at the Warfield, but not the new one. I don't think I'm gonna get it, though. His vocals in WatW were, very sadly, very bad. The years old belting out screams and yells has taken its toll on his voice. When the (attempted) the scream from Angel of Death, you know, THE scream, it hurt me to listen to it because its sooo bad. He can't hit ANY high notes now.

slayer is alright i don't like them as much as i used to i would say their best work is spill the blood or south of heaven. i don't judge vocalist on live performances because singing live is hard to do, soundmen suck, and they can't use the added depth of multiple takes (mults).

I felt the same way. That ruined the dvd for me. What's weird though is that I saw them back in June and he sounded just about perfect.

i've become confused on slayer's solos when i hear a very technical solo i think it is hanneman but i look in the booklet and it is really king or vice versa. king has a horrible reputation and i'm confused about how he got it when i hear some of his solos then i hear other and say to myself (yeah, he really does suck).

Cipher Hour
11-24-2004, 11:13 PM
Kerry has a history for writing really "weird" and out of place solos while Hanneman has written a lot of Slayer's best solos. King just has a reputation for being a bit of a bad songwriter I think.

MetalNightBodomNight
11-24-2004, 11:15 PM
that's true, it's just all of the sudden king throws a curve ball on you and makes you ask yourself if he is really that bad. i think i'll stick with hanneman though. araya needs to fix his open e basslines to show some more chops, slayer dosen't have the most wild guitars.

i would have to say AoD, Raining Blood, and Postmortem are my favorite. they get my blood running. and since we are talking about Slayer i thought i would add, IM GOING TO SEE THEM IN DEC!!!! WOO!!!! YAY FOR SOMA!!!

11-25-2004, 02:13 AM
for everybody knocking kerry king, yes i like jeff hanneman better, but nobody here can knock kerry king, cos hes better than us! he writes heaps for slayer and his solos may not always be in place with the song (although most of them are still in key!) but some of jeffs arent either, but thats the general idea of slayer. theyre not a band that has amazing perfect in key solos like a steve vai or a joe satriani. it wouldnt suit the music anyway. i doubt anyone in this forum can write a slayer style solo like kerry king can.

and by the way for the guy who said they get mixed up with whose solo is whose in the songs, in head phones kerry is on the right and jeff is on the left. you can still here the solos in both, but one is louder and better quality than the other.

What turns me off from later Slayer is the lyrics. Why did they have to give King the lyric duty? Hanneman's were so much better. Compare Raining Blood to Threshold. :rolleyes:

I just picked up there new DVD, slayer owns!! My favorite songs would be Seasons in the Abyss and Angel of Death.

SLATANIC-666
11-26-2004, 10:21 AM
Slayer are fvcking awesome. You wouldn't think it though looking at my username, subtitle or avatar :rolleyes:. Anyway, the new DVD still reigning is superb, Daves drumming is as good as ever, Toms vocals, despite a few bad reviews of recent times were pretty good too, Jeffs solos were excellent as always although he did have some problems towards the end of the show but I'm sorry to continue the torrent of King bashing but his solos just didn't take form of anything on Reign in Blood, they sounded more like stuff off Diabolus and GHUA.
To name a top 5 list of Slayer songs is impossible because you really are spoiled for choice but I have phases with Slayer where I'll really be into later stuff from Divine, Diabolus and GHUA but more often I'm into the older stuff. At the moment though i'm into one song in particular which is War Ensemble, probably because I was playing it on guitar the other day but I know that in a short space of time I'll be really into some other song, Chemical Warfare say.
That's what's great about Slayer, they've got that much great material it's very hard to lose interest.

Dead Skin Mask

That song scared the **** out of me the first time I heard it because it was 1 in the morning and I wasn't exactly expecting the wierd voices near the end.

King > Hanneman, but neither make great solos... I've heard they know almost no theory, and judging by the solos I don't doubt it.

I think the album "Hell Awaits" has more to it than any of the others. Instead of modifing or extending the central riffs of the song, Hell Awaits creates an eveloping phrase of awesome riffs that connects each to the next unleasing the brutality that is slayer.

Favorite riffs include:

Blood Red 0:17-0:31
Expendable Youth 0:34-0:54
War Ensemble 2:14-2:34
Cleanse the Soul 1:54-2:15
Ghosts of War - 1:52-2:22

Bugger this i'll be up all night. Thats Seasons and half of South of Heaven.

^^^True indeed. I just watched their live DVD "Still Reigning" last night. I wondered why it was only $12.99, until I watched it. They play the entire Raining Blood album and about six other songs. All together totalled no more than 45min. It was a good show, but it just seemed really short...

His vocals were awful at Donington in June, I'm certain he lipsinked(sp.) because he couldn't even talk let alone sing and scream. I think Kerry had to say a few words at the end but I'm not sure. Hot weather and copias amounts of alcohol are not a good mixture.

Spirit_In_Black
12-08-2004, 05:36 PM
top 6 slayer songs:

1. RAINING BLOOD
love the storm in the intro, amazing riff, could of done with a better solo though

2. ANGEL OF DEATH
i still remmeber the first time i heard the solo at the end i was stunned, and the lightning fast riff in the intro !

3.GHOSTS OF WAR
gotta love this song it rules

4.STAIN OF MIND
abosolute heaviness, love the lyrics and the riff, but the solo on it, like the solo in bloodine (thopguh not as bad) is ****ty, great chorus though

5.DEAD SKIN MASK
good riff and the intro gives it an eerie feel and it has a great chorus!

6.SOUTH OF HEAVEN
it first captured me with the "unforseen future nestled somewhere in time' bit at the start, its so effective when he goes BEFORE YOU SEE THE LIGHT - YOU MUST DIE!!!!!!

I just like songs that focus on the sick things in this world and mass murderers are always a good subject for that. It's not documented but I'm pretty sure the song 'Piece by Piece' is also about Ed Gein, e.g. 'Decapitated bodies found, on my wall your HEAD!!!!!' \m/

My favorite song is probably angel of death, and my favorite line is when he starts the second verse (or third can't remember right now because im not listening to it)

"Pumped with fluid, inside your brain. Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes"

everyone stop bagging kerry king, hes a better ****ing metal guitarist than any1 in this forum!!! i love slayer, but after watching war at the warfield and seeing any live **** in the past few years, age and injuries from swinging their heads too much is really getting to them. arays vocals are ****ed...i compare angel of death and black magic where he does awesome screams to the newer slayer stuff and its not as good...still great and amazing, but ever so quickly deteriorating. also im glad dave lombardo is playing with slayer again. i liked paul bostpah, but a band like slayer isnt complete without their original drummer - he was voted 10th best ever on some official list, then sadly knocked back down to 12th, but hes still a god - theyre all gods!!!

dead skin mask and seasons in the abyss and stain of mind are the best songs.

i also like the heavyness of payback.

^^ :lol: :lol: :lol: I have a fairly funny story about his name too. I was watching War At The Warfield a while back and my brother walks in, sees Kerry and says 'Woah who's that guys with the tatoos, he looks hard as nails' I tell him his name and my brother's like 'Kerry, seriously? :amaze: :confused: WTF!'. I was laughing for a good 5-10 minutes at my bro's amazement and shock.

Anyway, some good songs are:

Angel of Death
Die By The Sword
Black Magic
The Antichrist
Chemical Warfare
Raining Blood
Necrophobic
Hell Awaits
Kill Again
Necrophiliac
War Ensemble
South of Heaven
Dead Skin Mask
Postmortem
Payback
Scrum
Killing Fields
Bitter Peace
Circle of Beliefs...

Oh fuck it, I'm getting bored, anyway there's at least one song of each album so try listen to these and make your mind up which album(s) you like best :thumb:

What does everyone think of the Undisputed Attitude album? I find it is an OK album, but I never am inspired to listen to it with Hell Awaits only a few CDs up the line.

For some reason I overlook it a lot, as I left it out of my recommendation above. It has some pretty good covers on it, Abolish Government, Disintegration and Verbal Abuse are my favourites from it. Mr Freeze is good too 'You will die on your knees, by the hands of Mr Freeze...' classic. Is it me or does that part strike resemblance to Epidemic 'Breeding fast in poverty, infectious driving dormant seed...', plus I think to a certain extent Slayer used the opening riff to Mr. Freeze for the ending thrash part to Postmortem (4444 3333 6666 2222 4444 3333 6666 7777...). Those origionals from Jeff are pretty good too Can't Stand You and DDAMM(Drunk Drivers Against Mad Mothers :lol: :lol: )

I really only like ALL of the tracks on Slayer albums up to Reign in Blood.

Silent Scream
Live Undead
Behind The Crooked Cross

and so on

I just hate the fucking backing vocals.

What do you all think is Slayer's most intense song?

If we're talking old school, I'd probably go with "Necrophobic", but I still think that tracks like "War Zone" from God Hates Us All, that's the craziest **** they've ever done. It may not be as "classic," if you know what I mean, but it's much more punishing. Now I understand why Tom Araya keeps losing his voice.

Anyways, you may wanna check out, Show No Mercy, Haunting The Chapel and Divine Intervention. Some people, including myself say Slayer lost it after Seaons but Divine is still a great album, it doesn't contain a bad song IMO, Circle of Beliefs is probbly my favourite from it, or Killing Fields.

Well the rumoured title is Songs of Harmony and Devotion but as for what it sound like, I've heard reports it sounds like a cross between Seasons and GHUA, hopefully it will lean more towards Seasons, I think there's another song with a clean intro e.g Spill the Blood or 213 but little else.

about the new album. He says that they have about 12 songs ready to be cut.
He also b**ches a little about how the label is giving them crap about releasing it.
He states that some of the songs have DAVE LOMBARDO on the skins, which will
give it a seasons w/ GHUA feel. I read this about 2-3 months ago though.

My five favorite Slayer songs are Angel of Death, Raining Blood, Disciple, War Ensemble, and Fight 'Till Death. Nobody has mentioned Fight 'Till Death. The intro in that song is really good. BTW, I think that King is a slightly better guitar player because his solos do differentiate a little bit. Hannemann technically is much better, but in almost every solo he uses the same formula.
Notice the brief bend after a few seconds in a lot of his solos. It comes at the same time. But hey, I still think his solos are awesome.

I've heard several different live versions of Angel of Death...IMO, the Still Reigning scream is the closest he's gotten (on official live recordings) since Decade back in '91, and then since RiB in '86. :x

I have to learn Raining Blood on bass over spring break. Seems pretty easy, just the beginning with the

Gb|----------------|
Db|--------3-2-----|
Ab|------4-----3-2-|
Eb|0-2-4-----------|

seems hard as well as the

Sweet. I know that the 'Criminally Insane' t-shirts are back on sale, they're the ones that King used to wear a lot on the Reign in Pain tour. I'm not sure if this is just bullshit but I've heard rumours that there used to be an 'Altar of Sacrifice' jersey with a picture on them of Jeff and Kerrys' guitars impaling a priest on the altar...
I want :upset:

I've started getting into Slayer lately and I'm looking for some good songs to listen to. Currently I am interested in songs that have more of a melodic feel. I appreciate any suggestions.

Melodic Slayer? Try some of their stuff off of "Seasons in the Abyss" or their song "Bloodline."

It's fair comment to say that Slayer owe a great deal to punk. On the Still Reigning DVD Kerry's talking about how when he met Jeff he was really into the whole punk scene, he shaved his head and everyone thought he was nuts. Jeff had already gotten through a ton of metal that Kerry was currently into and had switched his attention to punk.

Edit: Gotta love those two punk songs Jeff wrote back in '84 which featured on Undisputed Attitude. Can't Stand You and DDAMM.

lets get this thread back in business.

was watching slayer dvd today, war at the warfield, and i think kerry needs to turn up his guitar.

watching songs like raining blood, and i saw his fingers moving but didnt hear any guitar. then jeff came in and got the song started.

Sorry guys to get off topic but I got kind of a stupid questin so lol please don't judge
well I'v been a slayer fan for the past 3 years now and all there stuff I basicily love like reign in blood, hell awaits, show no mercy, south of heaven, god hates us all, divine intervention but a couple days ago I was listning to angel of death and I took a chance to listen to it actually and I heard like a lot of meaning in there that I didn't take in to consiteration before O and don't worry i'm not saying there satnists buy all means but, when I heard the lyrics I kind of understood it more, I'm thinking there about like nazism am I correct (and sorry I'm not calling them nazis at all I'm just kind of curious)

i'v googled a lot but have came up with not straight foward answer.

What made me think about all the nazism is lines like

Aushwits the meaning of pain the why I want you to die

like cattel you run

showers that glimse you of your life

and angel of death flying free



please don't think I'm calling slayer nazis at all I'm just trying to get like a straight foward answer.

My final question is like the entire meaning of the song and if they have like any affilation with nazism


Lol again please don't flame me.

Angel of Death is about Josef Menegel, the head doctor at the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland during the Holocaust. Hanneman read a book about him and was lie "holy **** this is cool!" and he wrote a song about him.

What did everybody think of still raning DVD? I loved it on the extra tracks that they had, it was gross during necrophillac at the beggining Tom Araya says "says this song is about older women, real old women the kind that are 6 feet under" lol then hes like you know what I like about dead women is eating them out you can feel the maggots crunching in you mouth, lol when I heard it it grossed me out.

But any ways I though still raning was pretty awesome when they had the blood poor down on them Tom looked awesome his Bass was totaly soaked, it was funny when he was headbanging though.

http://www.mengele.dk/ - all about our little angel of death
Auschwitz, the meaning of pain
The why that I want you to die
Slow death, immense decay
Showers that cleanse you of your life
Forced in
Like cattle
You run
Stripped of
Your life's worth
Human mice, for the Angel of Death
Four hundred thousand more to die
Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
Sadistic, surgeon of demise
Sadist of the noblest blood

Destroying, without mercy
To benefit the Aryan race

Surgery, with no anesthesia
Fell the knife pierce you intensely
Inferior, no use to mankind
Strapped down screaming out to die
Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
Infamous butcher,
Angel of Death

Pumped with fluid, inside your brain
Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes
Burning flesh, drips away
Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts to boil
Frigid cold, cracks your limbs
How long can you last
In this frozen water burial?
Sewn together, joining heads
Just a matter of time
'Til you rip yourselves apart
Millions laid out in their
Crowded tombs
Sickening ways to achieve
The holocaust
Seas of blood, bury life
Smell your death as it burns
Deep inside of you
Abacinate, eyes that bleed
Praying for the end of
Your wide awake nightmare
Wings of pain, reach out for you
His face of death staring down,
Your blood running cold
Injecting cells, dying eyes
Feeding on the screams of
The mutants he's creating
Pathetic harmless victims
Left to die
Rancid Angel of Death
Flying free

Angel of Death
Monarch to the kingdom of the dead
Infamous butcher,
Angel of Death

Angel of Death
