I love slay. I know there's probably a million discussions about this, but I want to say it myself. I LOVE SLAYER! So, anyway. I want to know about some wicked awesome Slayer stories. My favorite now is when the guy carved slayer into his arm and set it on fire. Man, that's got to suck, hahaha. Anyways. Slayer!

I like Slayer a lot as well. Their earlier is easily better than their more recent stuff but its like that with most thrash bands. I was listening to their debut album a lot last week and realized how good these guys were. I'd say Lombardo is one of my favorite thrash drummers of all time actually. The only thing I don't really like about Slayer is their solos, but they are trying to make it sound chaotic but I just don't care for that much.

On your comment about the solos; I like their solos. Despite the fact that I've read in many reviews that it sounds like they just randomly pick notes, I feel that it is a very calculated chaotic sound. However, I could just be giving the guitarists of Slayer too much credit.

I love seeing topics on bands i like in here. :) I've seen Slayer live something like 8 times give or take now. I tend to forget the details because i went to show many shows at the time. o_O I'm always squished against the barricade right in front of Kerry King though. I would have LOVED to seen them back in the early days, that would have been awesome.

my mom want my hair cut short but i didnt want to.. so we ended up with an agreement that i cut my hair in exchange for slayer's "god hates us all" cd. it was nice doing business with my mom hehe.. it's a win-win situation for both of us since i was dying to get my hands on that slayer cd. its not as good as slayer's previous album though like reign in blood.

South of Heaven is my favorite Slayer album. I find it has better songwriting and production than Reign in Blood or Hell Awaits or any of the albums before. Though I do not listen as much as I used to, if I listen to thrash it's usually something a bit more melodic or for the non-melodic ones like Kreator.
