1- Yay for Americon being played; I like that on off WPB
2- WTF only 10 songs for Slayer that is a load of horseshit:mad:
3- For 10 songs it aint a bad set; they need to get rid of Hate but otherwise not bad at all

For a 10-song set, that's not bad at all. Well, it's ok. "Postmortem" and "Black Magic" are :rocker::rocker::rocker:
I'm slightly curious about their other song choices, though. Why continue doing "Temptation" after the Seasons-in-full tour is over? I think there was a reason that last year was the first time it had ever been played live. "Americon?" Really? Of all the songs they could do off the new album, they do "Americon?" Do they not read album reviews?
Oh... just realized one more thing. Where the hell is "Angel of Death" in the set? :eek::mad::bouville:

Surprising they are playing Temptation outside of the Seasons-in-its-entirety set.

One of my favorite Slayer tunes. :rocker:

Edit: Just checked. No videos of the show on youtube yet.

I know. I've seen them 17 times staring in 1987.

I meant it's surprising they kept that song in the rotation since it isn't considered one of their "classics".

90% chance this setlist isn't right or complete. I'd only give it a 10% chance and that's because of Gary Holt replacing Jeff and what songs and solos he learned or knew.

Naw, i think this was for the Soundwave Festival. Slayer is on the 2nd stage (Maiden is headlining the main stage) and they might not even headline the 2nd stage. The schedule I saw had Rob Zombie playing after Slayer, but they might be rotating.

Americon is the worst song ever. Kerry should not be allowed to write songs, especially with his deep and thought provoking lyrics.

02-26-2011, 11:53 AM
They should have replaced "americon" with "Live Undead" and "Temptations" with "CHEMICAL WARFARE". Then that would have been a pretty nice ten song setlist. Considering that they're not even headlining or Co headlining, so I'm not really complaining. I hope they play this at the upcoming Big Four show minus "Americon", "Dead Skin Mask" and "Temptations", and add 5-6 six more songs that are not World Painted blood tunes :snivel:

I don't mind the first two songs, they're just trying to get their album out there. I dig. They really love it and are proud with what they have done with it even though its a piece of crap record.

02-26-2011, 12:59 PM
except its not a piece of crap, and many fans and critics alike were surprised at how good it actually was. Americon is shit though, esp. with lines like "its all about the motherfucking oil"...cringeworthy, even if i agree with his point.

world painted blood and hate worldwide are quality songs. dont be a snob.

For ten songs, this is an okay set. Good mix of old and new, but Americon is the worst song they've written in a LONG time. Temptation is cool, so is Black Magic. They usually take out either Raining Blood or Angel of Death when they aren't playing a good headlining amount.

How am I being a snob? All I said was I don't mind the first two songs on the setlist, I dig that they want to get their album out there. All musicians are proud of the work they make and like for it be shown to the world, but some stuff are just ment to never be played (Americon is a great example). Nothing more nothing less.

Also, different folks different strokes. I love slayers last two records but this one is just :barf:

I do love "UNIT 731" and "Pychopathy Red"...but that's it...

02-26-2011, 01:42 PM
psychopathy would be a good song to swap out from the new album.

02-26-2011, 02:20 PM
I just hope if they ever do their own US headlining tour again, they lay off the song from Seasons. The 20th anniversary is over. I know they're gonna play War Ensemble, the title track, those are cool. But other than that i find that album kinda boring. And the new album is just garbage. I'm sorry, I'm not gonna kiss their ass just because it's Slayer, but it sucks.

Glad to see Black Magic and Postmortem thrown in. Like to see more from Hell Awaits thrown in too. None in this set. My favorite Slayer album.

Dude, they haven't played anything off DI in years. I'm right there w/ ya though. I wish they would break out some tunes from it. Killing Fields, Sex.Murder.Art, the title track, are among my all time faves.

W/ all the Americon discussion : I actually like the song. I think it's cool they broke it out. Problem is, it isn't a "good" song, very simple music and cheesy lyrics. Would rather have them play Psycopathy Red, Playing W/ Dolls, or The Human Strain.

It seems like a lot of you guys are bitching about the set: GIVE THEM A BREAK!!! They've only had Gary Holt for what, 10 days? You must've expected them to be somewhat limited in their ability to play certain songs. Yes, I agree the setlist sucked, but what did you expect to see w/o Jeff?

JRA
02-26-2011, 03:27 PM
The only two new songs they need to play are World Painted Blood and Beauty Through Order.

It's not even that. Gary Holt is a fuckin' pro, that fucker could probably learn a shit ton of songs in less than a week. The only reason they're playing such a limited set is because they're not headlinging nor are they co-headlining. But for the Big Four I would assume atleast a 16 song set at TOPS. And I would not mind a set like this as long as they take out "Temptations", "Americon", and leave out any other Word Painted blood songs that they want to play. Also, I just realized....

No Dead Skin Mask on this set:party:

It's not. Pretty underrated slayer album actually. I'm not one of those "omg FIRST FIVE SLAYER ALBUMS ONLY" type of person.

I'm one of those "OMG FIRST FIVE ALBUMS ARE THE BEST, BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS PREFERRED TASTE" type of person. I actually love all the albums they made after "Seasons" except for Diablous and World Painted Blood.

Also, i know its just an EP but I think Haunting the Chapel should be up there as "OMG FIRST 6 ALBUMS ARE THE BEST". Haunting the Chapel may have only had 4 songs but they are some of the best songs that slayer has ever made. If they had made 4-5 more songs that had the same intensity, aggression and gritty Atmosphere that "Aggressive Perfector", "Capitor of Sin", "CHEMICAL WARFARE" and "Haunting the Chapel" had, I would rank it as the best Slayer album(in my opinion)

Blacktooth85
02-26-2011, 05:19 PM
Yeah I'll co-sign and Divine Intervention being underrated. That album is badass. They've thrown Dittohead in every once in a while in the past few years, but that's it. Would die to see 213 thrown in. One of my all time favorite Slayer songs.

World Painted Blood is not a good album. It's a colour-by-numbers album. It's the Slayer formula on repeat. It's boring.

That set is alright. Dropping 'Angel of Death' is awesome. I love big "fuck you" moves in setlists. It's not up there with Ozzy dropping 'Paranoid', Motorhead dropping 'Ace of Spades' or 'Metallica' dropping 'Enter Sandman', but it's up there.

Ozzy dropping Crazy Train would be much more of a "fuck you" move for him.

Uh, yeah it is. What other song defines Slayer more than "Angel of Death?" Besides "Raining Blood," that is.

other points to add:
-WPB is leagues better than Christ Illusion, God Hates Us All, and obviously Diabolus. In my opinion, of course.
-I've also recently taken a liking to Divine Intervention. I'm never gonna cry out for them to play anything from that album, because there's so much better stuff from the first 5 they could be playing, but nevertheless, it's a great album.

Interesting tidbit. Of all the songs King wrote by himself, "Expendable Youth" is the only good one. Not only can't he solo, he can't write a song.
He's cowritten a bunch of good ones with Jeff, but of all the songs Jeff wrote by himself, there isn't a bad one.

Kapper

OK, I was actually at the Soundwave festival last night and saw Slayer so let me clear up some issues/errors.

Firstly, yes it is a short set, but they only had an hour to play. That being said, they could have probably squeezed in another tune - there was too much 'dead air' between songs.

Secondly, Gary Holt was PERFECT. Seriously, he nailed everything, and he kept the solos fairly close to the originals. Also, his stage presence is better than Hanneman,

Finally the set is slightly out of wack. They most certainly DID play 'Angel of Death', it was their final song. 'Black Magic' was actually played at the end of 'Raining Blood'. Basically they played 'Raining' all the way through, until just before the final insane thrash/guitar solo section. At that point they let the feedback hang, and threw in an interlude of 'Chemical Warfare', then moved onto 'Black Magic'.

I love it when they cut the end off of Raining Blood and go straight into Black Magic; I really hope they do that in Indio.

Id like to see some more enthusiasm from araya. I think part of why the setlists are so stagnant is that band kinda doesn't have their heart in this anymore...or at least tom doesn't seem like he does. King said tom would have no part of the big four performance at the end of the show...he did an interview recently where he claimed to know nothing about their future plans, and just talked about wanting to see his family as much as he could before and after shows...plus does he ever look like he's having fun up there? I dunno...just how I see it.

Well, for the big four thing, they had three voalists and three bass players up there, Tom probably felt like he couldn't add anything, and he was in the photo at the end with everyone on stage. I seen them last year at Graspop, and Tom was all smiles while playing for us, he's loving it. King is the one who does the setlists, so thats all his game, he's bad at constructing them. That setlist is ok, not great, but ok, considering its not headlining, and its at a festival.

does he ever look like he's having fun up there? I dunno...just how I see it.

I saw them in Long beach during the summer, Tom couldn't stop smiling and laughing at the audience. He looked like he was having a blast. Seemed like he was really getting a kick out of watching people go ape shit on eachother. I saw them again 2 months later in Hollywood, and I will admit....Tom looked pretty dead and had this "I wanna get this shit over with" look on his face the entire time. He still sounded great but his stage presence was pretty bland.

Damn, maybe not being able to head bang anymore is finally getting to him. :(


I like the updated list better, let's go with that

Me too! Postmortem, Manditory Suicide, HALLOWED POINT, Payback, BLACK Magic. Oh god, I really hope they keep these songs for the big four show. And for the love of god, keep Dead Skin mask off the setlist. It's a good song, but they have been playing that shit for years and its been almost a staple to their setlist(they might take it out on stupid special occasions but that's pretty much it. Just keep it the fuck off the set.)

Slayer have cancelled their set at Soundwave Sydney only minutes before they were set to go on stage. Our sources at Soundwave have confirmed the band has cancelled. Tom Araya has been admitted to hospital and will be kept in overnight which has forced the band to pull out. Organisers expect the band will be back and ready to perform the Melbourne leg but there are a lot of angry Slayer fans in Sydney right now. Twitter is being bombarded by Soundwave tweets with some fans even stating that there is a riot in progress. Reports are that riot police have been called in to keep the angry crowd in order

I don't know if you guys know what I'm talking about but everytime they play war ensemble Jeff adds this little stupid sound effect to the song.
