Diabolus in Musica is the eighth studio album by American thrash metal band Slayer, released on June 9, 1998, by American Recordings. It was the band's first album to be played mostly in C♯ tuning, and named after a musical interval known for its dissonance. Lyrical themes explored on the album include religion, sex, cultural deviance, death, insanity, war, and homicide.

The album was met with mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the band's experimentation, while others criticized the album's departure from their traditional sound. The album was a commercial success, reaching number 31 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States.

The album's opening track, "Bitter Peace", features a slower tempo and more melodic guitar work than the band's previous material. The song's lyrics deal with the futility of war and the cycle of violence. The album's second track, "Spill the Blood", is a faster, more aggressive song that deals with the theme of revenge.

The album's third track, "Disciple", is one of the album's most popular songs. The song's lyrics are about a man who is possessed by Satan. The song's fast tempo and heavy guitar work are typical of Slayer's sound.

The album's fourth track, "Killing Fields", is a slower, more melodic song that deals with the Cambodian genocide. The song's lyrics are dark and disturbing, and they paint a vivid picture of the horrors of war.

The album's fifth track, "Bloodline", is a faster, more aggressive song that deals with the theme of violence. The song's lyrics are about a man who is driven to violence by his family's history of crime.

The album's sixth track, "Cruel World", is a slower, more melodic song that deals with the theme of despair. The song's lyrics are about a man who is lost and alone in the world.

The album's seventh track, "Suicide Silence", is a faster, more aggressive song that deals with the theme of suicide. The song's lyrics are about a man who is contemplating suicide.

The album's eighth and final track, "Payback", is a faster, more aggressive song that deals with the theme of revenge. The song's lyrics are about a man who is seeking revenge for a wrong that has been done to him.

Diabolus in Musica is a dark and disturbing album, but it is also a powerful and important album. The album's lyrics deal with some of the most difficult and controversial topics in human history, and the band's music is a powerful expression of the anger, rage, and despair that these topics can evoke.

Diabolus in Musica is not an easy album to listen to, but it is an important album that everyone should hear. The album is a reminder of the darkness that exists in the world, and it is a call to action for us to fight against that darkness.
