In honor of Jeff Hanneman I am starting a Slayer cover band called "Thlayer". All Slayer covers sung with a lisp.

Still, dying of necrotizing fasciitis is pretty metal.

Megadeath would be a great name for a Megadeth tribute band.

Bloody William: Megadeth was awesome until Dave Mustaine went all Ted Nugent.

Maybe it was a deliberate misspelling rather than a typo considering that Dave has turned into something like a cross between Ted Nugent and Ned Flanders. It would be a sign of respect to avoid associating Slayer with a musician who endorsed Rick Santorum last year.

RockofAges: Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate clean vocals, but I find it almost cliche how many metalheads reject death / black vocal delivery at this point.

Cookie monster vocals all sound the same.  Even old ST stuff at auctioneer speed you could eventually make out the lyrics with a lyric sheet.

You need to come out of that stupid Politics tab more often.

I've tried over and over again to like DI. It's just never worked out for me. The songs don't seem to have any structure to them and it just gives me a big meh. Worst Slayer album, imo. WPB is great. As is God Hates Us All.
Few metal bands have put out pretty consistently good albums over the span of 30 years. Even Maiden has put out some clunkers. I'll give Slayer a pass on their one misstep (again, imo)

So I enjoy slayer quite a bit, however outside of the three albums I actually own everything I hear from them I find via Pandora, so I recognize song titles but not really albums. I had to pull up the song list because invariably I must have heard and thumbed up things songs. Look over the list, nada, nothing rings a bell. It's like pandora doesn't even cross suggest songs from that album. Listened to the title track and was unimpressed, I'm just going to go back to pretending this album doesn't exist.

The solution here is ditch Pandora and use a streaming service that lets you listen to full albums.

i use rhapsody and love it. it's compatible with my sansa, so that helps a lot

I'd be compatible with her too

"Since we did 'Angel of Death,' I've had three occasions where someone will go 'Psst, hey. I'm part of this Aryan World Nation group and we're thinking of having you speak,' " Mr. Hanneman was quoted in "Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal" (2013), by Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman. "I'm like, 'Why?' And they'll go, 'You know.' I'll be like, 'No, why?' And they'll go, 'Aren't you ...?' I'm like, 'What? No. Go away. You don't get me at all.' "

I never got this.  How can people not clue in that they were just glorifying violence for shock value, not endorsing Nazi politics?
Man, before I listened to Rust in Peace I had no idea how big a fan Dave Mustaine was of nuclear proliferation.
Metallica must really love that Sandman guy.

Nabb1: moothemagiccow: that's a pretty big oversight

Yeah, I have to agree with that.  I saw a triple-bill of Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer with Alice and Chains opening years ago.  My ears rang for days after the Slayer set.  Great night, though.

so 4 bands = triple bill?
