No wonder SLAYER picked Pat O'Brien. He has one of the most vicious attacks on those strings and not to mention his technique is unbeatable. SLAYER is lucky to have him onboard for the tour but they should have let CANNIBAL CORPSE tour with them along time ago. Do I remember Tom Araya saying he hated growling bands?? Doesn't matter, Both are awesome....
