Slayer: Staying heavy

Since their debut in 1983, American thrash metal legends Slayer have stayed heavy, aggressive and controversial.  Unlike Metallica, who lost their way in the 90s, Slayer have never deviated from the conventions their fans love and expect. Lyrically this means you get slammed with images of death, torture, serial killings, suicide, war, religion and insanity.  Musically you can expect evil riffs, frenetic tremolo picking, double bass drumming and whammy bar antics.  They've been known to ruffle a few feathers.

Metallica DEFINITELY lost their way in the 90s....nice to know that finally someone agrees with me on that. They've ruffled my feathers LOL- I used to have an ex that was a HUGE fan of theirs and would set the alarm on full blast to Slayer. Have you ever heard of Verbal Assault? My cousin's husband was the drummer and Slayer used five of their songs.
