Slayer – back to the old school


SlayerWhen I first listened to it, it took me back almost 10 years ago, to the high-shool years of rock (and roll). Giving the same feeling as the old heavy / speed metal bands like Metallica (first albums), Slayer, Motorhead and others were inspiring back then, the “Christ Illusion” album is one of the best Slayer produced in years.

The lyrics are also in the fashion of their most popular themes – religion, war and violence. Probably the album will not top their best so far, like Reign in Blood for example, but it is a remarkable album nonetheless, specially considering the longevity of the band – and Tom Araya still has that awesome screaming in his voice :)

As time has passed, I am sure I am not listening to Slayer the same way I used to, but hearing them play like in the early years certainly gives a nice impression and brings back some good memories.

The full album can be listened to (but not downloaded) on MySpace/Slayer. Also, here is a live performance of The Cult.

I managed to get my dirty mitts on Christ Illusion and I have to say that Slayer continues to improve, rather than stagnate. Granted, there is no radical departure from form (a la Metallica 2.0)… and, that’s a good thing. They’ve tightened it up, crystalized lyrical content, and play for all the chips.

Really good for metal fans.

Oh, oh… and there is a MySpace music leeching tool that does allow you to save tracks, in violation of TOS, of course.

Given that I tend to abhor *nearly* everything about MySpace (or more exactly, the zombies is attracts), I have not used the tool… but I do understand that it works.

i have to admit, christ illusion was pretty tight, despite what others may say about it… but since when did they matter? and i must say, i think reign in blood (and south of heaven) are on the top
