Think I'll hold off for a few months when they re-release it with bonus tracks and dvd. And no I'm not joking :P

Kind of a dumb album title though.

I think they should've titled it "Blood Painted World" would've made more sense. In either case:

Despite the somehow cheezy albumname I'm sure Slayer will deliver a solid metal album. They haven't released one bad album

Dude! that is the dumbest f***ing album title. Your gonna tell me they couldn't think of something better than that. Are you kidding me. Whats this sh** coming too. Metal is becoming a joke. Watch all the concert tshirts look like ED HARDY shirts too like f***ing testament did. Homo's..... I remember back in the day when you used to be scared to go see slayer. Now its a "Mall Metal" sensation.... it makes me sick.

PS the new song sucked...they should go back to there orignal analog sound and write sh** like hell awaits through seasons. No one wants to hear this new corny half a$$ sh**.

YOU THINK....I'M SAYING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well its not the greatest title ever, but I dont consider really ANY of the Slayer albums to have great titles, apart from "God Hates Us all". I mean, South of a Heaven, Christ Illusion... etc

I personally like the album title. World painted blood, instead of world painted red?...it's more br00tal, ya get it? it's Funny!

I just enjoy how rediculous the name is. Psycopathy red was awesome, so god knows(actually Satan knows) this album has the potential to be the sh** 666 times over.

On that note, happy FVCKIN SLAYER day ya c***rags.

Now Playing: FVCKIN SLAYER!!!!!!- Bitter Peace

I think the album title is ok, but if theres a song called World Painted Blood then i think it has alot of potential to be a great one

This cd is not coming out July 7 (which is this Tuesday). It is coming out after the tour ends, so the earliest release date would be August 18th. Not sure why Slayer is always so f***ing mysterious when it comes to release dates. As far as everyone knocking the title of the new cd, I don't understand why all the negativity? Who cares what it is called, it will be amazing as always. As long as they don't have another title with the anti-God crap. That stuff is kinda getting silly.
