Guest review by

Slayer fans around the world held their breath with this release, the first since the departure of much loved drummer Dave Lombardo. Paul Bostaph had big shoes to fill and was immediately branded inferior by the almost universal agreement of passionate Slayer fans everywhere. Right from the word go he puts any concerns to rest. He blasts off straight away on the first track "Killing Fields" with the toms and double bass driving like a well oiled locomotive and he uses a complete range of various speeds and timings on the track. The fact that the guitars only kick in after the drumming is already well on its way seems to be a statement of intent that Lombardo is gone and Bostaph is here to stay (which is quite ironical in light of events almost a decade later).

Rating: 8 Nice album! i'd like the guitar tone a bit lower though... Mind Control is one of the best Slayer songs in their history!

Rating: 6 Didnt really like it compared to the past few masterpieces they did.

Rating: 9 Its not exactly 'Seasons of the Abyss',that's for sure, but it sill delivers the goods. Some songs on here also have a progressive element to them as well...

  I'd say very underrated. Unique sound and feel. And that cascade of riffs at the begging of the album is indeed "killing".
