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.

Drumsound is like in death Magnetic

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.

You say that on this album they have one of their best song...... Ya,your opinion is your opinion

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

Rating: 2 Haha, wow this is rated wayyyyy too high! Completely worthless addition to their discography. Not a good riff to be found and the worst lyrics of all time.

Rating: 5 There's some good riffs on it but that's it.

Most of it comes across as mindless Thrashing for the sake of mindless Thrashing.

Poor effort IMO. Christ Illusion was a better in my mind.
