A zoo in Demidiv, Ukraine has recently revealed a statue of speed/death metal godfather Tom Araya as well as a pillar featuring lyrics from Slayer‘s classic “Dead Skin Mask” off Seasons in the Abyss. Hats off to the folks at XII Months zoo for accomplishing something that will help introduce the next generation (and probably sections of the current youth demographic) to an essential band. Perhaps this will mean that certain children in Ukraine will be exposed to quality metal first rather than the turds that float to the top in media and plant a seed that will help ensure that up and coming hessians aren’t complete modern metal bozos.

He looks a lil limp in the wrist there….
My home town has had a bronze statue of Bon Scott (AC/DC) for years. He’s shirtless and doesn’t look as though he’s playing with himself. We win.
Mine has one of Danny Devito banging Liberace on the green.
