Thank God for this band. When nothing and no one else was there to break my fall and keep my sanity intact, they were, and they did, and they do. I have a six-disc player in my car. Slayer fills all slots and never leaves that player. I never knew how full of shit so many other bands are, until things got very ugly and intensely "real" in my life. No one goes to the bare-bones core of the soul like them. There is no "big four"... There's only a "BIG ONE" that STARTS WITH A CAPITOL FUCKING "S", ENDS WITH A CAPITOL FUCKING "R" AND SLASHES ALL OTHERS TO RIBBONS BY COMPARISON. My fave vids are "Dittohead" and "Seasons".
