Slayer is a way of life.
Of the big four, they play the purest form of Thrash Metal. Mozart was, allegedly, accused of making too many notes. I would Eden Hazard a guess that a four minute Slayer song will have more notes in it than any of Agadoos’ symphonies. The speed and intricacy of the guitar solos are mesmerising. Memorising them is a walk on part for these guitar geniuses.
Then there’s the drums. You don’t get many double bass drums in classical music. That would be a drum too far for those “virtuosos”. They couldn’t keep up to our beat.
The bassist/singer of Slayer, Tomas Enrique Araya Diaz, might look like a Billy Connolly lookalike but this Big Tam was born in Chile. There’s a lot of nice wines come from Chile. No really, there is. I don’t know if it’s Global Warming, Climate Change or Alec Salmond, there’s something in the chilled Chile that slays the opposition.

Live Fast. On High. Repentless. Let it Ride.
Play it Loud.

Strewth – that ain’t music, mate. A cacophony of shouting, out-of-time kettle bashing and repetitive chords perhaps, but not music. Talentless bikies with a brain-dead audience.
Yuk !! 😦
It’s energy, Bearsy, energy. And it ain’t Chris Rea.
Baths, haircuts and a year in the Army all round, as my dear old Gran used to say.
I managed about ten seconds of that.
As Chris said: the road to hell. 😱
It’s clear to me what the problem is. Nobody is playing this loud enough. Please read the instructions.
To paraphrase what I said on J’s post re. Sibelius, not good, I prefer Clapton or Peter Green or even folk music (well almost)!!!
Is that singing, or is he suffering from constipation after a bad Indian meal?
This is more like it:
BillStruth! Here I am, trying to rock the place up a bit and I get Shot Down in Flames.
Play it Loud.
Now you’re talking !! 🙂
But then they’re Aussies, so it’s no surprise.
Nationalist noise is always preferable innit?
I took one look at the picture on the video and decided it was not for me… I rather think Bearsy was a lot more polite than I might have been. 🙂
AC/DC’s music does not seem t have done them much good!
Hmmm, silence is golden.
Off to Welsh Wales soon? 🌾🐑🏉🎶
Today as of 9 this evening. Not a good time of year, one wonders how much of the greenhouse will survive!
Plus we have the builders in, who managed to arrive most inopportunely to do various bits and pieces, but they have built a very nice fence for us to keep the dogs in. For the past six months they have been guarding the road, crapping on front gardens and molesting pedestrians for strokes and pettings! (That is the dogs, not the builders!) We have been waiting for a fence since last autumn, now they turn up!!!
Bon voyage, CO – well on the way by now I expect.
