Review by Ken
3½ stars out of 4

The rage and propulsive energy of album opener 'War Ensemble' reminds fans of Slayer's glorious 'Reign In Blood' era. But elsewhere on the album, Slayer display a much wider musical range- alternating between hardcore aggression and sinister melodies- to produce what is undoubtedly their most diverse and commercially viable album to date. The album's title track is almost a ballad! But though the formula here may stray quite far from the punk-inspired spirit of the 'Reign' album, it still contains far better songs than Slayer's previous 'South Of Heaven' LP. And Slayer have even created one of the creepiest rock tracks of all time with 'Dead Skin Mask'; a disturbing song about serial killer Ed Gein. The child's voice at the end of the track is likely to send more chills up your spine than 5 re-runs of The Exorcist.
