I'm a fan because Slayer showed this late '80s metal kid what heavy really sounded like. After a life devoted to metal thus far (I bought Ride the Lightning and Seventh Son when I was seven). Slayer never pussed out, never gave in, never gave up, never followed or ever appeared to notice musical fads, never sold out to the music syndicate, and always layed out everything on every album and at every show.
Slayer fans sprouted into a million different metal sub-cultures, but every true metelhead has one thing in common...MOTHER-FUCKING-SLAYER.
Mike Patton once said; "If you don't like Slayer, I don't trust you." I agree with all of my heart. If you consider yourself a fan of ANY kind of metal, but don't know or like SLAYER, you are the shit caught between the treads of my Dr. Martins so go kill yourserlf for being a fake, poser, or simply just plain ignorant!!! HAIL SLAYER! HAIL FATHER HANNEMAN, RIFF IN PEACE!
