fangs a lot
Other than Slayer's Divine Intervention.
Get the new one instead or Decade Of Aggression.
metallic high fives all round.
I can't argue with this.
Except I also like the black album. So there.
7th son of a 7th son were my gateways into metal. Will always have a special place in my metallic heart for it.
Skip metallica and just buy another Slayer record.
Metallica were basically ace for the first 4 albums and bits of the 5th. When I was at school I hated them for being old-fashioned and cheesy, but I have since seen the light. Slayer have always been the "cooler" band to like but they just aren't as good.
Reign in Blood
Master of Puppets
Ride the Lightning
Don't get divine intervention
but I remember thinking it was a bit rubbish back then. I can't believe it is up to the standards of RIB, SITA and SOH though.
What about Megadeth recommendations or are they just rubbish?
I also have an Exodus album.
I was just using acronyms for Slayer albums ie SOH = South of Heaven and not referring to SOAD
Megadeth and Exodus were both same era and Bay Area thrash were they not?
get Rust in Peace and Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
FROM A LACERATED SKY!!!
Kill 'Em all.
I'd also get Slayers punk cover album - Undisputed attitude.
yes get Decade of Agression to pick up Captor of Sin and Die By The Sword - saves buying Show No Mercy and Live Undead.
Master of Puppets is the best, then Ride the Lightning.
They are the best! FACT (opinion).
You'll be jealous...
..And Justice For All
are the only two you need.
is a great gateway to Slayer... Love Tom Araya's song introductions...
Metallica... MOP, and Justice, Kill, Ride.............. but Megadeth are better........ Rust in Peace, Peace Sells, Killing is My Business, So Far, So Good, So What smoke Metallica......
do not listen to this human, it lies
only rust in peace and peace sells are that gud.
but that pistols cover stinks
some time in 1988. mate gets a call of his mate who had been in Jillys rockclub in Manchester the night before. Who should walk in but Slayer - so he speaks to them and they say they're stayin in the Britannia hotel - where most bands stayed back in the day.
So the next morning we hop on the train laden with records for signing and stalk the hotel. About 2pm, Lombardo leaves the hotel so we grab him.
"We're practising for the tour at the Apollo. Pop over if you want". WTF? the world South of Heaven tour and they're practising in f*cking Ardwick?! Hey ho we'll give it a go!
So we cab it to the apollo, pop round the back and there's about a dozen people there - back doors shut. Sooo we wait and then Tom Araya, Kerry and Jeff come out and invite us in. So there we are, 15 or so of us, watchign Slayer rehearse at full volume with NO-ONE in the venue.
My mate even had the balls to have a go on Lombardo's kit.
After an hour or so, got everything signed, photo's then popped to the pub behind the venue for a drink. We had to sit in the back room cos we werent 18 but Dave bought a round of Lemonade's and sent them through!
Lombardo = nicest man in rock NOT dave grohl.
my only cool slayer story is that i found a mint condition copy of reign in blood on vinyl, signed by the whole band, for 25p
pretty cool also. Do you want to compare sign's to see if yours are genuine? ;-)
research on ebay when i got it :D
but as above, first 5 metallica albums are the only ones worth having, and seasons in the abyss, and south of heaven are the slayer ones to get. i'm sure i read somewhere that god hates us all by slayer got a good review, i remember thinking it was ok, but not much more than that, it might be ok, if that's any help
but they never improve upon the originals
which is why no one's mentioned it. (=
i mean, once you get over the novelty of hetfield singing 'i got somthin to say..'
but seriously, don't buy any metallica cds. DOWNLOAD THEM. hahaha. especially master of puppets/ride the lightning & the more sophisticated version, and justice for all.
as for slayer: LIVE UNDEAD!!! start there, then get reign in blood & south of heaven. others may be obtained, but after reign in blood, it's all irrelevant.....
i invite any and all of you coming to ATP next week to come to my chalet and enjoy my metal mixcd of power, which contains the Deth, the Tallica, SLAYER, the Thrax and many other luminaries.
