The gods of metal are certainly proud papas when it comes to Slayer: The demonic quartet has been creating some of the best music the hard-rock genre can muster since the early '80s. The California-based bruisers offer more of the same with their eighth studio effort, "God Hates Us All." The Christian Coalition will surely have nightmares for years after hearing lyrics like "I wont be force fed prophecies/ from a book of untruths for the weakest mind/ I keep a Bible in a pool of blood/ so that none of its lies can affect me."
Guitarist Kerry King has said that this album was influenced by nŸ-metal bands like Slipknot. Hey King, where do you think they got it from? Diehards will salivate listening to "Disciple," "Exile" and the new mosh-pit anthem "Warzone." This is simply another brutal effort from one of the best hard-edged bands on the planet. Heck, even the uninitiated might convert after one listen.
