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.

intense.

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.

Of course they aren't but DI was a good album in it's own right.

'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.

@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.

thats why ive never liked post 90's slayer, actually i think their first 5 albums were gold but after that and Jeff started to share then, like you said in the 2000's Kerry dominated it became boring.
