Amoeba Review

The godless gods of thrash metal are back with their 11th album, following some lineup changes and the death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Despite all of this, songs like the title track are as brutal and awesome as anything the band has done, as Tom Araya howls through a kind of restatement of purpose for the band over a pulverizing double-kick drum. “Take Control” finds Gary Holt ably taking over for the late Hanneman with tremoloed, palm-muted riffery, unleashing into volcanic solos on “Cast the First Stone.” Repentless does plenty to satiate longtime fans — witness the pure muscularity of “Chasing Death,” for example, and “Pride in Prejudice” engages in some good ol’ baiting social commentary (“Fuel the fire with racial slurs/and see who kills the other first”). But there is also some variation here; “When the Stillness Comes” begins with spacey, undistorted guitars and rumbles more than it roars, the effect even more forebodings, while “Vices” has to be the angriest song ever with the refrain “Let’s get high!” On Repentless, Slayer manage to do the impossible, moving past tragedy to soldier on and make something worthy of their legacy.
