I heard 3 tracks off their new album, and they really just need to quit, tom araya cant sing(not that he ever could), the album has no power or body at all, everything is soo cliche' lyrically, its just their time to stop

Long live Slayer. I know alot of people like the "nu-metal" for some reason, but Slayer try to stay true to their fans and the music that they like to play. Doesnt matter if you like them or not. They arent going to stop. They dont need a "gimick" to sell anymore albums. No turntables or gangsta rap lyrics. Just pure evil. Even if Tom does go to church on sundays. LOL. We still have Kerry's twisted lyrics and Jeff's haunting guitar work. I cant think of many "new" bands that can come close to keeping up with Slayer. Most of the new bands worship Slayer anyway. Lamb of God would be a good second. Say what you want, Slayer still kicks a$$. --Bleed Black Label!

At least the tracks I've heard so far all have different elements to them. Whether you like it or not, Slayer always offer something different every album. It would be ballz if they just did "Reign In Blood" over and over again.

I see so many people already pissing on Slayer's unreleased work and I bet they are all into sh**ty nu metal bands that couldn't play a single Slayer riff.. I've heard a few of their songs and so far I think they stomp as just like everything else Slayer has done.. Be Slaytanic. \m/ Ò_Ó \m/

GOD WILL SAVE. but evil feels good here and now. At least it feels good to me. I know love and good is the best ,but all thats ever happened to me is grey.black. and I hate life.. But, thatsw why I love SLAYER and thats why I say holy sh**. Please ave me from the EVIL I feel and love when I listen to SLAYER and maybe thsy are a good reason to reflect on all of your mistakes and bad desicions of the past and come clean and repent for your sins. Dude do you wanna spend eternal life in f***ing sh** getting f***ed by dudes and living in depression? Or do you wanna live eterity in happiness and feel like you can't stand feeling this happy.

Mr. Post 19,
I am the one, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.
I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician, and I decide your fate
I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the god of war, and I will cut you down.
