Sound — 10
The sound on this album just blew me away, it was just absolutely amazing with the fast tremelo picking, solos, double bass drums it was astounding. Jeff and Kerry do such an overwhelming job on the guitar, they can make solos in short songs, they can pull off really long ones in pretty good lenght songs and they are just amazing at what they do. Dave is an amazing drummer and he uses the double bass drum really well on this album and his drumming in songs just blew me away. Tom is a pretty skilled bassist and he sings and does that too so that's pretty cool and he has really good riffs on the bass. So yah the sound overall was just amazing.

The lyrics, wow, the lyrics blew me away, I mean they put so much thought and energy into their lyrics it is just plain incredible. Tom is a skilled a vocalist he is really, really fast at singing too it is absolutely unbelivable. I think the lyrics in this album are about pain and death and stuff like that. So the lyrics were just astounding.
Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to other albums because Slayer did their own metal sort of thing, if there's a band that sounds exactly like them, then show me. I don't have any faveourite songs on this album all of them kicked complete major ass, the solos kicked major, the drumming and just about everything on this kicked ass. I love everything about this album and I hate absolutely nothing about it, I mean Slayer are such an intelligent band that what is there to hate about it! If it were stolen/lost hell yah I would buy it again. Slayer are one of my favourite bands at the moment and I hope they have more good album in the future (I know about Christ Illusion).
