IS DIABOLUS IN MUSICA THE MOST UNDERRATED SLAYER ALBUM?
D.X. Ferris certainly thinks so, and listening to the record again this week, I’m starting to agree with him (I actually think that the Paul Bostaph years in general are underrated, and that the recent Slayerenaissance began with God Hates Us All. But I digress.). Diabolus has an incredible sense of groove – something Slayer are not usually known for – and, of course, reunited them with Rick Rubin for the last time.
Here’s the band playing the album’s opening track, “Bitter Peace,” in Argentina in ’98, probably right around the time Diabolus was being released.
