Quick blazing riffs, insane drums and songs about war, destruction, death, serial killers, and the Apocalypse.
Their last album featuring Jeff Hanneman. I was lucky enough to see his last performance at the Big 4 in Indio California in 2011. He came out to play the last 2 songs, South of Heaven and Angel of Death.
Jeff died a few years later and Slayer was never the same. They released one album in 2015 and called it a day.
World Painted Blood is their swan song in my opinion. It is a good album with some good tunes, but Slayer is about riffs and that’s about it.
Slayer! Slayer! Slayer!
Here is the track listing...
1. World Painted Blood 2. Unit 731 3. Snuff 4. Beauty Through Order 5. Hate Worldwide 6. Public Display Of Dismemberment 7. Human Strain 8. Americon 9. Psychopathy Red 10. Playing With Dolls 11. Not Of This God
Platty's Editor Note: I give this album 3 out of 5 squirts of my venom! It's a decent album.
