Slayer came out with their latest and we listened, mainly because if someone has once done something great, they have the potential to do it again.

The good news: It’s Slayer finding a style they can work with, and it happens to be mostly like their old style.

The bad news: epic song structures and Satanic mythologies are replaced by more literal and verse/chorus constructions.

The summary: It’s not old Slayer, but it’s better than anything since Seasons in the Abyss.

    Hardcore punk Slayer is way better than nu-metal Slayer. Some of the lyrics make me cringe “It’s all about the motherfuckin oil!” I rolled my eyes at that one. It is their best since Seasons but its also on the same level as the cover album. Now all they need to do is stop touring with suck mallcore bands.

    I always thought Reign was like an abridged and streamlined version of Hell Awaits, which will always be their finest moment.
