Rating: 9 For me, a very underrated album! Some people say this is "nu metal", but as far as I can see, there's nothing nu metal about this album. lol There was some nu metal elements on GHUA, but not on DIM. :\

"Screaming From The Sky" and "Wicked" are weak songs, and "Love To Hate" isn't amazing, but everything else on the album is awesome as hell to me! Songs like the creepy as hell "Death's Head" and the crushing "Perversions Of Pain" are amongst Slayer's best and most underrated songs. The Japanese bonus track "Unguarded Instinct" is also an amazing song, and I wish it had been on the album proper, cos I wasn't able to hear it until many years after this album came out.

i'd say this a bit "hardcore" but it ist nu metal at all... Death's Head, Bitter Peace, Scrum and Stain Of Mind are the best songs imo!

I have to agree, they are all great songs! "Death's Head" is very effective at sounding totally disturbing, which is perfect for it's subject matter. lol I love the way "Bitter Peace" builds the tension slowly with it's intro riffs, before tearing into all out thrash later on... brilliant arrangement, and an amazing Slayer song! "Scrum" is the only pure thrash song on the album, and it's an awesome one for sure... should be regarded as a Slayer classic Imo. "Stain Of Mind" is just catchy as anything, I love singing along to it! haha xD

slayer be this great thrash band that was super big in the 80s, im talkin like reign in blood and south and heaven and shit, all kinds a crazy albums people everywhere dig
shit you can juss headbang to, you know
with this album these guys let the world know dem glory days be over fo rill
like it make you think are them brothas even tryin anymo

the two album before dis one aint nothin to marvel at anyway, but dey had a real chance to return ta glory here and they missed real bad
overall dis shit is legit annoying, like brotha maybe you should learn to write more then one riff, you know
i know they know how to, because they did it before
it be like when a brotha actin thug in tha street when you know that kid just aint like that, he gon be sum big fancy doctor, not a gangsta
go back ta schoo kid, get yer degree and shit and stop muckin about round here with us lowly folk
thas what this album be like, a future prettyboy doctor posin as some hard thug

even beyond that posin bit, you still gotsta consider for rill what exactly be goin down in them songs
like i guess you can call some of the solos, if you can even call em dat, mediocer at best
i jus dont undastand what there be ta lissen to once tha first track be done playin
not that it be a great track anyhow
i mean a brotha be yellin like he used to sorta, but he sound real weak now, older beyond a brotha years
and them gitarists aint seem real motivated either
a brotha need passion to play music good, and they actin like all the passion gone in they lives
jus becuz you start rippin off punk music don mean you forget yo purpose as thrash legends, ya dig

this album aint even a good by a number album, it just grate yo ears rill bad
at least a brotha can relive them glory days anytime a brotha want

Interesting review... good thing we always got those glory days to go back to I hear ya on that. Too many bands have just turned to shit in their careers but have some good classics that never get old.

Rating: 7 I regret getting rid of this one.


It's nowhere near as bad as I wanted it to be.

Bitter Peace is such a brutal opener and makes you want to launch a mechanised assault on fucking everyone. Listening to this song makes you pray for WW 3. Who gives a shit if the world will end, it will be violent and Slayer will be the soundtrack of our demise.

And for some reason a lot of the riffs make me think of steam trains.

It's like "Choo choo motherfuckers. We're Slayer and we're going to kill you fucking dead. Choo Choo!"




And bits of it do sound Nu-metal ala Stain Of Mind whose main riff could on Coal Chamber's first album. But it fucking rocks.
