A great band from their Debut album Show no mercy all the way to the end of Seasons of the abyss,Divine intervention & Undisputed attitude are probably their worst albums but they brought it back with Diabolus in Musica somewhat definately a highly underrated album but God hates us all is probably Paul Bostaph`s Best drumming work he did with slayer,Christ Illusion the Return of Dave Lombardo was great i actually found myself liking songs kerry king wrote himself surprisingly since i dont like his songs much,world painted blood turned out good & then the death of Slayer came with the Passing of the Great Jeff hanneman & the departure of Dave Lombardo,it`s sad to see such a great band turn into a shell of their former self

Paul Bostaph is better and more technical than Dave Lombardo

Although I love just about everything Slayer did up to and including Seasons In The Abyss, in my opinion the moment they decided to abandon supernatural evil in favour of more urban manifestations they lost the most crucial part of their identity. Sure they have released some good and even great songs since then, but nothing comes close to their output up to 1990. It would seem that in a weird biblical correlation, Slayer lost their might when King lost his hair, Sampson-style.

I heard Lombardo got 500$ per show which is why he left.
HE SHOULD BE PAYED MORE than the others, not less.
That's professional Satanism for ya, even if they claim it was a gimmick.
Also, practicing catholics shouldn't play evil music, or they should get their shit together and figure out who they are.

In my opinion the best thrash band reach its end! Jeff was very critical to the outcome of the band and Slayer should not try to replace someone unreplacable. They ought to pull back while still on top! I'll be very sorry if i see a second Sepultura parody...

R.I.P. Jeff.

If Metallica was the Beatles of thrash (which they were), then Slayer was the Rolling Stones of thrash but highly on speed and really really pissed off :-) Slayer was like... beyond description, like a constant bombardment back in the day (middle 80's) for us. Slayer can only be compared with Venom in terms of aggression and raw chainsaw-like, killing sound!
