Surprisingly good compared to their past few cds.

The only issue is that it sounds lacking in some parts. Like World Painted Blood sounds like there's one guitarist for most of it.

Stuff like that. Idk, it's good lyrically and stuff and it's, again, better than their past few ventures. But why is there like one guitarist for half the songs? That baffles me. Even their first album had more distinction between guitars. And the solos are...it's like they tried to do meshuggah solos(as in weird playing styles and the such) but....failed.... The palm muting is really weird on some of the songs too....

Again, it's still a lot better than their past 3 albums or so. And I do like it. S


So what's everyone's thoughts on the album?

Its pretty good.

The reason it lacks guitar PUNCH is because the production is stripped down.

Look at Metallica for example.

Enter Sandman.

Each guitar is overdrubbed at LEAST 2 times, maybe 3, plus the "thickner".

So really there's like 6 guitars......

Thats how you get that wall of sound on albums.
Fire it up, let the engines roll!
It's time to burn it down!
Keep bleeding on till the day you die!
Forever love it loud, yeah!

I liked it. Nowhere near some of their older stuff, but it wasn't bad.

I really didn't like the production at all. Some of the tracks felt really empty, which if you're recording in a studio with a decent amount of time, you can easily fix with some overdubbing.

Take it to the Slayer thread.


Heard about three songs from it, didn't like one of them. Anyway, I detest most Slayer.
