    Is Slayer now run by shareholders? Fuck them for ousting Lombardo.

    it reminds me of deicide (benton and hoffmans issue)
    remember, it’s not slayer is frankenslayer, slayer has died.

    The only 100% Kerry King penned track they played at this fest was Hate Worldwide which sounds more like a The Haunted track. No crazy headbanging, thrashing or moshing, no Slayer yells either, just standing around and golf claps for the songs. I can’t blame the audience though, FrankenSlayer’s live performance seems so stale and lifeless… Slayer, without energy… a sad sight to behold. I hate Exodus, the Toxic Waltz is stupid, I hope Gary Holt has no involvement in the creative process… in a perfect world Kerry King would ditch plans for a new album and throw in the towel. They can still close their contract with a best of or b-sides and rarities release. The world is an ugly place, and even Slayer is not infallible. Jeff Hanneman and Slayer, R.I.P.

    Bills have to paid, kids have to be fed folks.

      Yeah, except Kerry King is basically the face of B.C. Rich (the reason he does all those NAMM shows) as well as a snake breeder and Tom Araya has a farm. They need to settle down; they’re too old and everything they did since Divine Intervention has been ruining their name. Look at South of Heaven performed on the Live Intrusion video: even when they were creatively past their prime (their “rather be at a football game” clothes being a giveaway), Slayer had a good time playing together live and you could see that. Then look at this video: Tom Araya looks like he wants to sleep.

        It’s not Slayer anymore.
        Those of us that managed to watch them live with the original line-up should be glad.
        Why are we watching this on the International Day of Slayer?

          Perhaps an understanding of Slayer vs. FrankenSlayer should be displayed for the whole world to see.

          Your words are this article, though this isn’t really an article; it’s balderdash.
