Slayer's new album, "World Painted Blood", won't be out until October, but some folks have already heard it. Former Metal Edge editor-in-chief Phil Freeman is one of them. According to his track-by-track rundown, tracklisting of "World Painted Blood" will look like this:


01. World Painted Blood
02. Unit 731
03. Snuff
04. Beauty Through Order
05. Hate Worldwide [Listen]
06. Public Display Of Dismemberment
07. Human Strain
08. Americon
09. Psychopathy Red [Listen]
10. Playing With Dolls
11. Not Of This God


Freeman's final verdict reads as follows: "A lot of people say Slayer hasn't really been great since "Seasons in the Abyss". Those people are wrong. The Paul Bostaph years had a lot to recommend them ("Diabolus in Musica" is a seriously underrated album), and "Christ Illusion" showed that Slayer could experiment with dissonance and melody, and kick their own playing and songwriting up a notch when they wanted to. The band members have given a lot of interviews talking about how a lot of this album was written in the studio. Listening to it, you can't tell. That's really impressive. Much the way Metallica's "Death Magnetic" combined the thrash of their early years with the hard-rock grooves of their 1990s work, "World Painted Blood" builds on the success of every Slayer album before it. It's not a legacy-polishing effort; it's the next step in a still-ongoing journey. Highly recommended."

Does the track 'Public Display of Dismemberment' sound more like the title to a brutal death metal song to any of you? I'm just wondering.

I thought the same thing when I saw that song title!

Hope that this is a great album. I did quite like Christ Illusion (definitely more so than God Hates Us All) so hopefully they've built on that and taken it further.

Hate Worldwide and Psychopathy Red sound great, and the review is really encouraging, so I'm convinced this will be a great album. I hope so

I like Psychopathy Red, but Hate Worldwide doesn't impress me much, although I still have high hopes for this album.
Paradox0 - 21.08.2009 at 10:05  
I was worried that Psychopathy Red would be the opening track, but it looks like something put in the middle of an overal chaotic album. Interested.

"The Paul Bostaph years had a lot to recommend them ("Diabolus in Musica" is a seriously underrated album)"
Nice to know someones else actually agress with me on this one.

Same here, whoo

Though going by his last lines, Freeman is probably just upset at reports this will be the band's final album. I doubt I'll be buying it any time soon, so thanks for posting the news - I took the free opportunity to hear Psychopathy and didn't know about the other, but now I can with that

edit 2 weeks later - damn, am I glad Psychopathy is on this album... Hate Worldwide sounds almost as bad as Ektomorf
Daggon - 21.08.2009 at 17:12  
Well we just have to wait to listen the whole thing, surely it will be awesome

Haha, it's a surprise for me that your the first one that maked a comment about that part.
I mean... If you want to make sure people have expectatives then don't compare it to Death Magnetic, seriously.
Dangerboner - 22.08.2009 at 22:42  
Well maybe there is a similarity:

Death Magnetic = hairy vagina cover
Slayer - "World Painted Blood"

hmmm interesting
Mr. Doctor - 22.08.2009 at 23:09  
We have to see the artwork to confirm it
Deadmeat - 26.08.2009 at 20:21

Seasons In The Abyss is actually quite a bad album most of the later albums are better than their attempt at writing a commercially viable album
