Music Review: World Painted Blood

Band: “Slayer”

Album: “World Painted Blood”

Saale...Takle, Mote!!!

Saale…Takle, Mote!!!

There are few things that beat waking up on a Monday morning and finding a brand new Slayer album downloaded and ready to blast. And it can wreck a few weeks for diehard fans like me to hear their favourite metal band sound so beaten.

Come on, with Megadeth having unleashed Endgame earlier this year, Slayer should’ve made some very necessary tweaks to World Painted Blood. It’s not cheating, it’s called being ahead of the (end)game, and hopefully Metallica will learn from Slayer’s mistakes this time.

It’s all here – the fast parts, the shrieking guitar solos, Tom Araya barking away, but barring a few parts here and there that make your head bob up and down, there isn’t much else that holds your attention.

To say something nice – the parts that sound good are played with ease and have the relaxed confidence only greats like Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer can project. Yeah, I’m one of those who think the world should be divided into Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer and I’ll tell you exactly why another day.

My All-Time Favourite Band <3

My Favourite Band ❤

With the ineffective title track and Unit 731 out of the way, the slight fun you’ll have begins with Snuff, and Slayer display flashes of their greatness occasionally throughout the rest of World Painted Blood.

Beauty Through Order, Hate Worldwide, Human Strain, Americon, Psychopathy Red seem ready to burst with madness but there’s nothing that really stays with you. Playing With Dolls takes you back to Diabolus In Musica but I’m not sure how many of you want to go there.

My fellow Slayer  worshippers … you will like Public Display Of Dismemberment. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot else to take from World Painted Blood.

Not Of This God is the only song on World Painted Blood that reminds you why our planet and every other knows this band as “the mighty Slayer”. Not Of This God should’ve been the opening cut of this album.

Ab ketchup lagake kya faayda!


World Painted Blood does have a few tracks Slayer can include in their live sets… if they continue to perform, that is. If you need help getting over your disappointment over the rut the kings of Satanic thrash can’t seem to get out of, take your pick from the older stuff. Only Divine Intervention can save me now.

RATING: 2.5/5

    Hey man.
    I think this album is great….however, the production is shit……because the CUNT(cant find a better word to describe him) who produced metallica album, greg fidelman also produced this…and we all know how shitty the sound on death magnetic was.

    slayer was dumb to choose this dude for their album..

    but the material is great…at least better than christ illusion…but..i guess disappointing to people who worship Show no mercy…….

    Gone…Slayer is finished. ‘World Painted Blood’ just refuses to grow on me.
    Wasn’t expecting much from them but am still very disappointed.

    I love Slayer, man…but “World Painted Blood” is just fucking weak. Not that it changes anything – Slayer is still my favourite band.

    \m/The Mighty Slayer\m/

    I thought Rick Rubin was the producer?

    In any case, “Death Magnetic” has better songs than “World Painted Blood”.

      The album was produced by Greg Fidelman and executive-produced by Rick Rubin, who suggested Fidelman for the project.
      yep death magnetic was great too, but it has a very shitty sound quality, just like WPB…due to fidelman.

    I worship Slayer!

    This is it, this is called “Breaking The Law”, Mehta, Messrs. Halford & Co. would be proud of you! 2.5 for an album after Christ Illusion, can’t believe it. What’s it with song names like “Playing With Dolls”, if “Tormentor” had a life, it would be writhing in shame. Slayer should be called “Slatanic Holocausta Orchestra” considering 2012 and the next two albums. Ab Ketchup Lagake Kya Fayda takes the samosa (or whatever is that you prefer)!

    2.5 isn’t for the album, it’s for one of the best heavy metal bands ever 😦

    So, are Rick Rubin and Greg Fidelman blaming each other? 😛

    I hope not, for Slayer should’ve written some neat songs and things would’ve been fine.

    “Not Of This God” is pure Slayer, though. Gold.
