Divine Intervention [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
The rock & roll landscape changed dramatically between Seasons in the Abyss in 1990 and Divine Intervention in 1994. With the rise of alternative rock, many metal and hard rock bands that had been enormously successful at the dawn of the '90s were struggling by the middle of the decade. Instead of doing something calculated like emulating Nirvana or Pearl Jam -- or for that matter, Nine Inch Nails or Ministry -- Slayer wisely refused to sound like anyone but Slayer. Tom Araya and co. responded to the new environment simply by striving to be the heaviest metal band they possibly could. Less accessible than Seasons but equally riveting, Divine Intervention marked ...

Tom Araya and co. responded to the new environment simply by striving to be the heaviest metal band they possibly could. Less accessible than Seasons but equally riveting, Divine Intervention marked drummer Paul Bostaph's studio debut with the band. Bostaph proved to be a positive, energizing influence on Slayer, which sounds better than ever on such dark triumphs as "Killing Fields," "Serenity in Murder," and "Circle of Beliefs." Characteristically grim and morbid, Slayer focus on the violently repressive nature of governments and the lengths to which they will go to wield power. And true to form, Slayer's music is as disturbing as their lyrics.

    Very different...

    ...but not in a bad way. I think this can safely be considered thrash but has this weird aura of punk surrounding it. Most tracks are relatively slow, but there is the exception of "Dittohead"(a really fun live song to mosh your brains out to) which hearkens back to the days of speed metal. Rather than thinking of it as a setback, I consider this a musical evolution of Slayer. Not only did it mark the entrance of ex-Forbidden drummer Paul Bostaph, an underrated drummer and one of the fastest there is, but it is also lyrically the best, the songs dealing with realistic issues such as serial killers and the failure of the American Justice System. You may not like it at first listen but keep it for a while, give it a chance, it is a masterpiece and true masterpieces often take time to appreciate.

    Great Album, On Second Listen

    When I first listened to this, I was unimpressed. But after that, the reality of how good it was hit me. It's actually a great album with cool songs like "Sex.Murder.Art." and "213". Pick this up now.
