God Hates Us All [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Incredibly brutal, God Hates Us All is Slayer's most effective album since Seasons in the Abyss 1990, thanks in large part to Matt Hyde's raw production and a handful of killer songs. The previous few Slayer albums -- Divine Intervention 1994, Undisputed Attitude 1996, and Diabolus in Musica 1998 -- were relatively disappointing, at least for anyone familiar with the band's defining triptych of Reign in Blood 1986, South of Heaven 1988, and Seasons in the Abyss 1990. While God Hates Us All isn't on a par with those classics, without much argument one could call it a return to form for Slayer.

Incredibly brutal, God Hates Us All is Slayer's most effective album since Seasons in the Abyss 1990, thanks in large part to Matt Hyde's raw production and a handful of killer songs.

While God Hates Us All isn't on a par with those classics, without much argument one could call it a return to form for Slayer. A couple "War Ensemble"-style thrashers, "Disciple" and "New Faith," get the album off to vicious start; "Payback" concludes the album likewise. On the other hand, "Bloodline" is a slower-paced, evocative song in the style of "Reign in Blood" and "South of Heaven," including a melodic chorus. These are the highlights of God Hates Us All, and while there are some passable songs sequenced throughout the 13-track album, it's solid and well-balanced overall. Especially since it arrived after a long absence, God Hates Us All should be a relief for long-time Slayer fans who were afraid the band had fallen off during the '90s, and it well may surprise newcomers unfamiliar with the band's prime recordings from the mid- to late '80s.

    Continuing the dark tradition...

    On this, the last album to feature Paul Bostaph on drums, Slayer continue on in the vein of Diabolus in Musica. One might argue that it sounds too much like its predecessor, but upon careful listening, the trademark whiplash riffs reveal a complexity rivalled only by early Metallica or Megadeth. For some odd reason, the cover to the CD's booklet was deemed too offensive for innocent eyes, so a traycard covers up the image of the bloody Slayer logo carved into the cover of a bible (one assumes). So, don't be thrown by the white traycard; there are no censored versions of this album in circulation here in the U.S. Musically, this is a grand sendoff for Bostaph, who was later replaced by his predecessor, Dave Lombardo. Truthfully, this is a marginally better, more cohesive effort than Diabolus in Musica, in that the band seems to cohere more in a collaborative manner than they had for the few albums preceding this one. Like its predecessor, essential for the faithful, not so much for the casual listener.

    Oh, yes...the booklet features the lyrics interposed with material which may or may not be of biblical origin, as if Slayer's words were inseparable from the Holy Bible. It's a neat concept, and why someone didn't think of this before I have no idea.

    Back to their roots

    God Hates Us All is the best Slayer album since Reign in Blood. Period. I was skeptical about getting this album after I was so thoroughly disappointed in Diabolous in Musica, but buying this album was one of the best uses of my hard earned dollars in a long time.

    Barely worth buying

    This is got to be the worst Slayer Album out there. The only good song was war zone. Songs like Exile and Payback concentrated on saying the 'f' word after every word in the dictionary. If you like Slayer, don't buy this, buy Reign in Blood or Seasons in the Abyss.

    Angry? Give this a listen

    John Southhall is an A$$hole. SLAYER LIVES ON! This is the angriest album I've ever heard. Gather hate, anger, Satan, and violence, set it on fire, then send it to Hell, you'll get the best metal of the 21st century.

    Slayer at their BEST!!!!

    For a guy that goes to sleep with the classical sounds of James Hetfield (of old) and Ozzy Ozbourne, Tom Araya throws me out of bed!!! I mean this album has everything. It has classic lyrics, riffs and solos and its sure to please any Metal Maniac's pallat! I mean how can you not like lyrics like: I got my own philosophy. I hate everyone equally. You can't tear that out of me. No segregation, separation, just me and my world of enemies!!! Or I got a catheter in my brain or you make me lose my f'n mind all the f'n time. This album kicks your a-- so hard, you'll be tasting boot for a month!!!

    SLAYERS BEST!!!!

    What can I say, Slayer still rocks hard. I can't stop listening to this already classic album. From Darkness of Christ all the way to Payback, the album thrashes for all you TRUE METAL HEADS. If you want the real deal, look no further.

    This is the best Slayer album EVER!!!!!

    this ablum totally rules! if your a fan of the older SLayer (pre-Seasons), then you will love this album. one thing however, if your a kid with a VERY Catholic mom (like me, DOH!), then you should keep it hidden. the can be pretty offensive. but on the other hand if your mom stumbles on to it while "collecting laundry," you could always say that the song Payback (which is also the best song) is your therapy for recent events. bottom line: Slayer rule and this is there best work in a long time.

    Former Kings of Speed/Thrash Metal Are Finished

    Slayer has always had the most die-hard fan base ever since ''Reign in Blood'' was made an instant classic by the Thrash underground of 1986 (and beyond). In 2002, Slayer return with ''God Hates Us All,'' a no-holds barred pile of venomous hate that's sure to rouse debate. Its unnecessary because, this has all been done on previous Slayer albums and is merely a re-hashing of the past. The production sounds like it has a credit-card budget, and the songs sound like they were written in a week. Nothing new is shown on this by guitar duo Hanneman/King, and like their competitors Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax, they are collapsing creative-wise. Surely full of vitriol against everything, Slayer is just using more shock-rock gimmicks to get attention from an already dwindled Metal fleet. Slayer is more than done. Aside from nostalgic club gigs sure to impress, this band is artistically spent. Period!

    SLAYER, toughest album yet.

    I think this is slayer's best album yet they go back to the beginning with the speed of HELL AWAITS and REIGN IN BLOOD. I think the drums are extreemly hard hitting. If you are a SLAYER fan (and with SLAYER there is no in between you like them or you do not)you must get this album. I give it 5 stars for SLAYER fans.

    Pure Agression and Musical Unpleasantries

    I've been a huge Slayer fan since it all began, but this is masterful. My first impression was the agressiveness, then the timing is flawless. I am always amazed that these guys pull this off live. Anyway, for my musical tastes, I listen to everything from Brahms and Berlioz to Slayer and the Stretched Out Nipple Mommas. This deserves your attention, and if you have an sort of intelligence, you will apprecriate it. I'm anxiously awaiting their Xmas album, ''Slay Bel

    THIS ALBUM KILLS!!!!!!!!!

    I have waited years for this. I lie here blissfully exenterated; embrued in an aural onslaught of pure malevolence, rapturous maleficence, unmitigated hostility & lethiferous misanthropy. Finally, Slayer is back in all their feral brilliance & infernal majesty. Finally, this unit has cohered & birthed a Tophet the likes of which only they could engender. With this effort, Slayer has truly achieved Heavy Metal athanasia.

    God Hates Us All

    Slayer returns with their highly anticipated album ''God Hates Us All''. Slayer has never strayed from their one goal, to make heavy, fast, hard, break neck metal. A must have for every metal collection. This is a lesson in what metal should be.

    God Hates Us All

    Slayer returns with their highly anticipated new album, ''God Hates Us All''. It was well worth the wait, now that it's out what are you waiting for. Slayer has always stayed true to their mission of making loud, hard, break neck metal. ''God Hates Us All'' features a blistering set of killer metal tracks, including ''Desciple'' and '' New Faith''. This is a must have for any cd collection. It's a lesson in the way metal is supposed to be.

    Slayer's Payback!!

    So Metallica goes from ''Kill 'em All'' to ''Load''. Megadeth goes from ''Killing is my Buisness...'' to ''Risk''. Slayer goes from ''Show No Mercy'' to ...... ..... no opposite. No Opposite. ''God Hates Us All'' is exactly like the Slayer you first got into. Heaven bashing Speed metal with these insane solo's that make you want to turn your room into a pit.... yes, the good 'ol Slayer. Now it may not be exactly the same... Sure, this isn't like Manowar or Ac/Dc (you can't tell the difference between a record), they have changed some what but their formula still exists. The formula consisting of ''True'' metal. They are still dark, they are still evil and thank the one that hates us, they are still thrash. If you're a metalhead, you need this. Favorite Tracks: Disciple Payback!! (what Kerry meant when he said Slipknot influence) God Send Death Bloodline

    Still Slayer

    20 years later...and SLAYER can still tear your face off better than anyone. This is possibly their best release since Seasons. Check out Threshold and Payback, two of the most brutal tracks on this album. You will not be disappointed.

    METAL MASTERPIECE!!!!!

    Slayer has another classic in their hands. This is the most evil,brutal, furious,dangereous,hell bent music ever created. Kerry King's fingers must be dripping blood from the killer solos. My CD player has been burning with flames from this chaotic masterpiece.

    THE MOST AGGRESSIVE CD OF THE YEAR

    Slayer fans will not be disappointed & any new kids who may just be discovering the joys of metal music will find this disc to be a satisfactory starting point. It starts heavy & fast & never ends. The musicianship is fercious throughout. While everyone in the band deserves a round (of applause or beer) drummer Paul Bostaph's slamming is a real standout. The mix is superb & his drumming comes across like a violent thunderstorm, breathtaking!! Some of the lyrics may be offensive to some people out there & the subject matter at times is pretty evil & dark, however if this sort of thing doesn't bother you then it may never leave your CD player. Standout tracks for me are ''Pay Back,'' ''Disciple,'' ''Exile,'' ''Deviance'' and ''Warzone.'' I can't wait to hear the songs live on stage, I can't imagine the guitar duo of Hanneman & King not being able to avoid blisters on their fingers from playing these songs nightly. Damn this is the heaviest, most brutal disc i've heard in quite a long, long time.
