» 5 out of 5 Evil Faces
I remember back when I was a youth and was into Ratt, Motley Crue, Ozzy and the likes! (yes I admit it)
A friend of mine had a Slayer album (Show No Mercy, on vinyl even) and we used to listen to it for jokes, as neither of us liked it much.
It was just noise, no melody at all.
Then as the years went by, I found myself interested in harder and heavier metal. First it was Metallica, Anthrax and then came Slayer. It was the Hell Awaits release that converted me. So in a way, Slayer can be credited with igniting my passion for the dark side of metal.
I can still remember the day I heard that intro to the album with that great marching riff, at first that was the only part I liked. Then as more time went by I found myself hooked on the whole album. Especially the song “Hardening of the Arteries”
Thus beginning my love affair with Death Metal!
The godfathers of metal are back with a brand new CD for our musical enjoyment. This time they even got original drummer Dave Lombardo back!
