I dig Mark's vocals, more aggressive than Death Angel which fits the song. Otherwise it is a painfully average Kerry King song. In my opinion Kerry King hasn't written anything remotely interesting since Christ Illusion.

You be you Kerry. Frankly it's impressive to insist so vehemently on such a mediocre style of music.

Its...fine. I guess I'm just becoming too old for this type of thrash songwriting.

Yeah it's predictably dull, trite, played out like all these legacy acts releasing mediocrity to great applause.

Slayer 2.0, meet the new boss. Yeah, this is the shlock so many have been waiting for, and the banner crappy festivals have been waving to prove they have anything left to offer.

Lame song, lame lineup. Correct title would be: "Kerry King has no ideas"

This sounds like Kerry King playing with Death Angel. I didn't hate it tbh but yeah, painfully average.

In any case, remember that his managers wanted Phil Anselmo as the singer for this, so you can say we dodged a bullet there.

@Dewinged: More like sounds like Death Angel filling in the places of Slayer around Kerry King. These riffs and especially the lyrics are 100% out of that shiny dome.

Straight up trash. Who cares if Paul and Phil are on this. Death Angels singer? Get the fuck out, Death Angel are F grade thrash. This album should pile up in dumpsters everywhere once it gets released.

ehhhh, average but that arrangement is pretty rough. the verse sections just sound weak compared to the bridge. on the other hand the vocals sound better during the verses than whatever megadeth-esque vox he was going for during the bridges. but yeah song kinda flatlines at a certain point than just starts repeating itself, the solo sounds like an afterthought aswell.

lineups good but i'm expecting they chose the most slayer-y song they could for a single, hoping the albums a little less straightforward. and i remember death angel being pretty good but i probably haven't jammed any of their albums since i was like 14

Generally I don't comment about comments, but a couple of them all but dumbfounded me.

This is 72 seasons of Slayer? Seriously?

I wish 72 seasons Metallica could play with half the ferocity of this track.

Also Death Angel F tier thrash?

And yeah, this is nothing new under the sun, but to call this geriatric thrash is a far cry, as far as I'm concerned.

I usually don't agree with other commenters lol but yeah there's nothing generic about this even if it's mediocre. There's no such thing as "generic" thrash. Thrash is thrash.

72 seasons is genuinely more interesting than this. The song sounds like royalty free slayer. clunky as fuck and the vocals, while good, seem layered over the music as if the singer had never heard the song before. totally forgettable. the one really solid riff is one we've heard in about 20 other slayer songs.

Kerry King is a highly regarded individual and everything he's done musically for the last 30 years has been highly regarded.
