All Music Guide - Steve Huey
By 1998, it seems that Slayer has fully explored the possible variations on their signature style; they've had all the influence and impact they're going to, which means that in order to keep their fans' reverence and critics' respect, it's much more advisable for new Slayer material to offer competent retrenchments rather than experimentation with current trends. And they do indeed follow the former approach on Diabolus in Musica Latin for "the devil in music", an album that will certainly please fans while offering little that hasn't been heard before. If Divine Intervention tried perhaps too hard to re-create the full-on rush of the classic Reign in Blood, then Diabolus ...

If Divine Intervention tried perhaps too hard to re-create the full-on rush of the classic Reign in Blood, then Diabolus in Musica employs more of the in-between feel of Seasons in the Abyss, albeit with a thicker-sounding production and slightly more emphasis on texture than the formerly almighty riff. It may lack some of the spark and vitality of their 1980s recordings, but it's nothing to be ashamed of either. Even if their liner art keeps getting more and more graphic, the music is still the same old Slayer, and that's pretty much what sellout-wary diehards want to hear.

    Not their best, but certainly not a failure

    About the time that this album was released, Slayer became the target of accusations that they had sold out to Nu-Metal. Now, on this album they do use dropped tunings, and the tritone interval (an augmented fourth or diminished fifth, the "Diabolus in Musica" or the Devil in music) which littered the first few Black Sabbath albums is quite prominent here. Still, Slayer in no way sold out on this album. They may have lost a half or quarter step, but the guitars still leap out of the speakers in an assault on everyone within earshot. The music is still down and dirty, and the lyrics are still guaranteed to offend a youngling's parents. The artwork alone, with its images of gunshot victims and the like, is warning enough that this is one thrash band that hasn't mellowed over time. It isn't their best, but it's still a damned sight better than anything being released by their peers at the time. Not essential for the uninitiated, but absolutely necessary for the faithful, if only to revel in the continued depravity and darkness that Slayer seem to be able to conjure up at will.

    Fast and Heavy Slayer. Obviouslly.

    This album was wesome beyond comprhension. I listened to it once and the songs kept playing in my mind for weeks, and my ears begged me to listen to it over and over again. Best release since "Seasons in the Abyss". The best songs are "Bitter Peace", "Stain of Mind", and "In the Name of God".
