Well they posted the new album on their myspace at www.myspace.com/slayer

I fuckin hate it. The music kinda ok, but Tom's vocals is almost equal to James Hetfeild's in shittiness.

Heh, I downloaded a promo copy 2 weeks ago. Seriously though, Tom Araya needs to shut the hell up. The vocals aren't too great, and the lyrics are getting way old. We all know you're Catholic, just cut the crap already. The music itself is decent, verging on being good at times. But it's boring the rest of the time. Oh, and the solos get very annoying.

Anyway, some news about the CD cover:
Slayer have released an alternate cover for their upcoming 'Christ Illusion' album. The original cover caused controversy as it showed Jesus with his limbs cut off, floating in a river of blood and dead people. So a less graphic cover has been released as an alternative.

You can view the alternative cover here (http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y160/BlabberPhotos/Miscellaneous/?action=view&current=slayer_christ_alternate.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch2). Source (http://www.metalstorm.ee/events/news_comments.php?news_id=2931)

I agree with Araya's vocals getting raped, but I like the album (so far, I'm on track two).

Wait a couple more years and you'll be beating yourself up for what you just said.

I don't care, they both know about Tom and his religious beliefs. And still, it's his image that's on the line since he's the one actually singing it. It's lame as hell to be actively worshipping God while singing:
"I've seen the ways of God
I'll take the devil any day
Hail Satan"
("Skeleton Cross")

How well would metal work out if they were worshipping god in their lyrics?

My point exactly... he's a douche

Yeah, he contradicts himself with music.

In his interview he says God is love and peace, then in his songs he says its a brainwashing cult and stuff. It's just stupid.

I know most of it is an act and they don't even believe half of what they sing, but its still stupid to have to contradict themselves everytime they play music.

Hehe, Power Metal with God-worshipping lyrics... that would be too funny to bear.

I've had people laugh when I play Dragonforce before. What would they call that, "righteous metal"?

That was the same with a friend of mine, but he goes nuts over Sonic Firestorm now. Another friend of mine cannot stand Dragonforce, and refuses to tell me why. The conversation usually went like this:

Me: I'ma play some Dragonforce.
Him: Fuck Dragonforce, they suck.
Me: What? Dragonforce is the shiznittle, man! *Plays My Spirit Will Go On*
Him: God damn, turn that off.
Me: What's wrong with it?
Him: It sucks.
Me: How?
Him: I don't like it.
Me: Dragonforce doesn't suck because you don't like them. They have amazing vocals, instrumental work, and songwriting.
Him: They still suck.

Then, I play Children of Bodom and he calls it "techno metal", at which point he goes off to watch Korn and Slipknot music videos.

i guess some people cant take change, the vocals are unique, which is good, much better than mainstream korn and slipknot vocals.

Are they getting to old to rise the horns? Well all the old cds were great I guess they had to have at least one band one.
