  • From the blistering opening track “War Ensemble”, to the crushing “Dead Skin Mask”, to the title track reminiscent of Black Sabbath, this album is an entirely different experience from the “Reign in Blood” era Slayer, but still just as powerful and memorable. While the guitar work is still highly technical controlled chaos, and Araya’s voice seems more mature, Lombardo’s chops on drums are, as always, incredible. One particularly memorable moment is during a breakdown in the middle of “Spirit in Black”, where he rolls the bass drum with machine gun precision.

    From start to finish this album shows a mature side of Slayer that both allowed them to grow as a band post-Reign, and still showcased what they did best.
