The local indy record store ran a pic of Slayer on the cover of their most recent promo zine, along with a partial exchange from an (imaginary?) interview which went as follows:

Q: What's the title of the new Slayer album?
A: World Painted Blood.
Q: What's it sound like?
A: What on Earth do you think?

It's pretty much exactly what you think. 10 or so songs clocking in around 40 minutes (11 tracks, 39 minutes and change this go around), some slower paced tracks, one or two creepy psychotic murderer tracks and a couple short but sweet barn burners played at 900 miles an hour (that's 1,448 kph to our metric friends) and lots of, uh, spirited and chaotic solos that make GIT grads cringe.

Although its predecessor marked a return-to-form of the band's signature sound, i prefer the progression and structure of 'World painted Blood'. Thing is, when slayer play the shorter songs here, they sound as if they came straight out of 1986. But on the longer songs (i.e, longer than four minutes), there is more tension and build-up at the songs' respective intros, making the songwriting seem more complex than usual. Nonetheless, it can get very bland indeed, as on the extremely generic 'Americon' and just-as-pointless 'Human strain', not to mention the unnecessary midpoint of 'Playing with dolls' (just being picky here), but this album just goes to show that slayer aren't afraid of a little variation in their music. Sure, they've shown progression on earlier records, but not as obviously as on 'World painted Blood'.

I'd say the problem is actually the fact that this is Slayer. If it weren't Slayer, then it'd probably be a good album.

Love the f&ckin' crazy-sounding Hanneman solo leading into the bridge section of the title track as Tom repeats "like a disease, spreading death, erasing your existence" and Dave pounds out a cool rhythm. Great song and a good album.

Very very mediocre Slayer album. Rather dissapointed with this one. A few tracks are outstanding but the rest is unnessecary. Megadeths "Endgame" just destroys it.

Actually I'm not sure if I'm sentimental about Slayer or not but really like this album too. One of their best. The lyrics are fantastic. World Painted blood and Hate worldwide are among the best thrash songs both lyrically and technically. If you don't like this album then you don't like retro thrash masterpieces and you're not a metalhead. sorry but that's true.

I find it hilarious also that you're insulting hardcore considering how much they influenced thrash, the "metalhead's trve genre."
...And what's wrong with rock? Blasphemous as it may be, there's more to music than thrash metal. There's sure as some hardcore and rock better than anything Slayer ever did, that's for damn sure.

Since when does appreciation of an entire genre can be reduced to what you think of one album?

I'm a big Thrash fan and I love early Slayer but I think this album sucks.

Not really. It is much better IMO.

Some songs are surprisingly good like Beauty Through Order, Hate Worldwide, Public Display Of Dismemberment, Human Strain. But overall this album is a bit weaker than it's predecessor. Beauty Through Order is maybe one of their best songs ever written, however Christ Illusion is more consistent.

Beauty Through Order remainds me of Seasons In The Abyss album.
