Slayer's slap-headed guitarist Kerry King has laid into Metallica.
Speaking to Azstarnet.com (na, me neither), King had this to say about the band who are so metal they've got the word in their very own name:
"When I look at Metallica, I'm like, 'Am I supposed to believe you're the guys who did Master of Puppets, or am I supposed to believe you're the guys who did Load, or am I supposed to believe you guys are the ones who are trying to be heavy again but forgot how to do it?'"
Exhibiting a fairly accurate sense of self-awareness, King decided that the band should not attempt to make radio-friendly hits.
"Even if we tried to be popular... we'd probably shat* it all up," King said.
Slayer have released six gold records.
*in the original interview, this was written '(expletive)', so I improvised.
