I like the band a lot but I think they are pretty unskilled.


As far as I am concerened, Show no Mercy is their best album, fuk all the critics and wannabe critics, that was the ground breaking album. :) Anyone who says otherwise, is just following what one person started. :)

Well, I never dug the lack of vocal talent and the overflowing of Satanic lyrics! :-)

To each his own though.....

I remember once on the old thread I said that Tom could sing better than Mandy Lion....you think I would have penned a Danish cartoon of Mohammad.

All kidding aside, don't fool yourselves folks, Slayer made a name for themselves in the industry and are very accomplished players. I have seen them live several times and that is one tight band. I realize they are not every ones cup of tea, but Tom's vocals are certainly no less talented than James Hetfield and Hanneman's riffs are nothing to snear at.

In all honesty, I've never really given the band a fair listen. For me personally, I have a problem with their image, so I can't get past that.

The only songs I've heard of Slayer's are the very few that received play on the original Headbanger's Ball. Reign in Blood being one that stands out the most. It's not fair of me to say the band members can play or can't play, because I don't know. Judging from the few cuts I've heard, I've never been that impressed though.

I will say this. I watched some of the Testament - Live In London DVD last night, and I believe an ex-Slayer drummer sits in for the first half of that show. If that's true, the dude can flat out get with it on the drums! I can't remember his name though.

With that said, James Hetfield of Metallica couldn't sing his way out of a paperbag! :-)

Hmm, I think it was John Tempesta. Dunno if he played for Slayer though.

Slayer was definitely a pioneer in it's genre. While some of their lyrical content may be questionable and even humorous, they do have some excellent riffs and great drumwork. On the other hand their solos don't impress me at all, but are still probably more challenging than Kirk Hammet's solos. Every Megadeth player to pick up the guitar can play solos around Hanneman, King and Hammet.

I believe you're right. I'm thinking of a guy named Paul Bostiff, I believe is his name. Regardless, John Tempesta is a very impressive drummer! At least he is on this new Testament DVD.

Yeah, Tempesta did indeed do some of the songs on the DVD,
but then .. enter ... Louie Clemente :)

i haven't been any big fan of Metallica at all, 'cuz when I
first heard them they were doing their mellower metal.

Megadeth was a totally different thing.
They've maintained their anger and I'd
take Friedmans unorthodox playing before
Hammets boring, sloppy and bluesy playing any day :!:

I've obviously heard of both legendary Bands Megadeth and Metallica & their both extraodinary Hard Rockers yet I'm more familiar with METALLICA and do have a couple of their Cd's like Reload & the Garage, Inc. Cd (something like that..-it say's Garage Inc, it's a strange title) which is an hefty Rockin' Classic masterpiece of cover songs. I like it alot/I "also" like the songs Fuel, Master of Puppets, I Disappear etc.,. and Anyway I Roam (that's a monster masterpiece/bad ass, song!) is my favorite Metallica song of them all! Peace.

I don't listen to a lot of slayers, only some. I hate the solos, but cool riffs.

Hmmm...I like Louie for who he is and what he's done before, but I have to say he looked a little rusty following Tempesta.

Bostiff, Bostaph....I told you I wasn't a Slayer fan. :?

I read somewhere that he hadn't played drums for 8 years(or even more)
so he had some catching up to do indeed :)

You know what scares me
A guy who sings about eating Zombie p**** in the song necrophiliac is supposed to be seriously religious
yes it is true
Tom Araya singer of slayer is a VERY religious man and that i find very easy to believe for when he talks hes always calm and hes not like "666! OMFG SATAN I LOVE YOU". Hes more relaxed and hes supposed to be a great dad. I wonder what that must be like for his kids
