Well, let's be realistic here - there was "Undisputed Attitude".

"Diabolus" and "Divine Intervention" weren't really that awesome, either - but that's not the same as saying they've sucked ass ever since "Seasons". That's just bullshit.

I will gladly continue to perpetuate that bullshit. Seriously, I can't stomach 95% of the post-Seasons stuff. It's not that it's "not thrash" or "false" - it's just that it's a pale facsimile of what they blazed their trail with.

When you put it this way, it's much more palatable. I can almost get behind this statement, with the exception being GHUA. That album fucking rocks. I still listen to it on a regular basis, and I don't have to hit the "skip" button at all when I do. That's a sign of a damn decent album right there. It's just so angry and awesome, I don't understand how people overlook it so often.

EDIT: ...and I know Ravenheart agrees with me, so I know I'm right.

World Painted Blood
Hate Worldwide
Cult
Disciple
Expendable Youth
War Ensemble
Jihad
Payback
Beauty Through Order
Seasons In The Abyss
Hell Awaits
Mandatory Suicide
Chemical Warfare
Raining Blood
Aggressive Perfector
South Of Heaven
Silent Scream
Angel Of Death

This was an awesome gig. I've waited a long, long time to see Slayer and I wasn't disappointed. I got to the venue early and stood outside just as Slayer did a soundcheck ... awesome ... Tom Araya sang the whole of World Painted Blood, so I got to hear it twice on the night!!!

Tom apologised to the crowd for twice delaying this World Tour ... in the end it was worth the wait. The setlist was fantastic (see above )

He also said he was doing well following his successful operation ... good news. Bad news ... he no longer bangs his head! Still, I'd prefer that to him having to call it a day and never playing again and that being the end of Slayer ... fuck that! You don't need to head bang, Tom ... we'll do it for you!!!

Great opening songs. Didnt expect Expendable Youth but kinda rocked to it anyway! Then came War Ensemble as you'd expect. Jihad sounded a little short but it's the first time I'd heard it live so maybe it was just me?! Glad they played it cos I fuckin' love it!!!

Payback was awesome and angry. Tom enjoyed it!

Didnt know it was Beauty Through Order on the night. Couldnt make it out but knew it was from the new album so was expecting a few "new" tracks in the set.

Seasons was awesome - it always is. I love the slow parts to that song. Hell Awaits and Mandatory were good again, then came Chemical Warfare. Fuckin' love that song and was hoping for it and got it!

Raining Blood from a lacerated sky ... oh yeah!

Aggressive Perfector. Been a long while since I heard it so couldnt make it out but thats just me!

South Of Heaven opened the encore. So pleased it did. I think it's the perfect song to open the encore and it was awesome to hear live again.

Silent Scream came and went. Again, it's been a while!

I was just waiting for Angel Of Death at this point and got it! Only one problem ... Tom's fuckin' microphone packed up right at the start of it!!! Waited an age to hear it live again and his fuckin' mic packed in! He couldn't believe it himself! First night, last song ... fuckin' technology!!! Wankers!!!

Anyway, we sang for him till his mic got fixed half way through. And that was that. First gig of the World Tour and I was fuckin' there to see it ... awesome!!!

Well aren't all Slayer albums angry?
God Hates Us All was a good step in the right direction, but it still has a bunch of filler.

Payback is sweet, though I never would've thought they'd play this

Once again, I agree with everything Nat says.

Well Undisputed Attitude wasn't really a true Slayer album though, just a covers album. And I like old school punk, so I enjoy the album (big Minor Threat fan). Divine is awesome in my opinion, from beginning to end. Diabolus was pretty good, a few forgettable songs, but Bitter Peace, Death's Head, Point, Scrum, In the Name of God and Overt Enemy were sweet.

All in all though, nothing really complain about. They have ALWAYS kept true to their style. At least you can say they never put out shitty albums on the level their collegues did (Metallica - St. Anger and Megadeth - Risk)

I kinda liked that album. I like it more than anything else they've done post-Seasons.
