death of Jeff Hanneman and the departure of Dave Lombardo last year.

Well, no doubt the new record will be over produced to shit thanks to Nuclear Blast.

As for the song, its standard Slayer and pre m/ for sure.

God Hates Us All was C# with a few in B standard on a 7 string. Last 2 albums also had a few in B but mostly they use half step down.

Hahahahahaha he's good but come on man.

Song was boring and sounded like it was a King written song which is no surprise. At least Gary Holt is a decent fill in for Jeff. But seriously though, band should throw in the towel and stop tarnishing the Hanneman/ Lombardo era of Slayer.

@Wiz You've obviously never jammed 'Divine Intervention'. Slayer doesn't complement his skill too well considering its thrash 24/7.

Album won't be good for sure, Kerry can't write for shit and I don't think he has ever produced a good guitar solo. I feel sorry for Tom, nicest guy in the world and he's stuck with a pure bellend.

Agree 100%. Just not the same. It's going to be like Metallica after Cliff died. Bostaph is a decent drummer, but no where on level with Lombardo.

Been there, jammed that :D I look at Bostaph like Tim Mallare from Overkill. Decent drummer, but had to sit on a throne that was occipued by a master.

One cannot possible listen to South of Heaven and Divine Intervention and say those are on the same level.

'Decent drummer'

But he's better than that, there's a reason why Dave hardly ever played any stuff from GHUA and DI, cos he couldn't match Bostaph's complexity on the pedals, kit etc.

I thnk CI is the only thing from Slayer that really stayed with me post Seasons. Which makes sense as a lot of the songwriting for that album came during the Seasons sessions. Jeff could write some killer riffs. Rip :

@Wiz You've obviously never jammed 'Divine Intervention'. Slayer doesn't complement his skill too well considering its thrash 24/7.

I was jamming that when you were still shitting your pants : ). And very much aware that he did some work with Testament and a number of other bands but come on, he's run of the mill.

Also, I heard a tune from his Hell band and it sucked ass.

Vocals were weak but the riffs were decent. Generic thrash and bordering on self-parody at this point, like Spirit said, but the track wasn't bad. I actually enjoyed it. I'd rather they release consistent heavy generic crap than try to experiment more. Last thing I want is another Diabolus.
