All basically appalling though FWIW.

I think Slayer are all Nazis.


They write a song about Nazis, and every time I talk to someone about Slayer they say there Nazis. They are NOT Nazis they wrote one song about a Josef Mengele. Thats it.

Man, the lyrics are enough to qualify them as sick fucks. The song is shit too, but that's just my opinion.

Saying the song is shit is indeed your opinion and thats totally fine.

Saying the lyrics to the song ''qualifies them as sick fucks'' shows you've wrongly interpreted the song. bravo

Not really. Every song has several interpretations. I know Jeff Hanneman said it wasn't his intention to make it like he's a nazi sympathizer, but they just went crazy with the lyrics IMO. You want to be ironic about something? Good, but make it look at least a little bit like it.

Imagine this: Your family membered suffered and died at the hands of Josef Mengele. Do you really think you'd like his killer to be referenced as the angel of death, and your relative a human mouse?

Cannibal corpse are gross as fuck.

Thing is, as much as I'd dislike the killer being refered to as an angel of death, and my family members human mice, in the grand scheme of things that's how it was really...
If my family spent their last days in the camp of death, I'm pretty sure I'd have other things to do than listen to songs that would make me feel even sadder. Don't you think? All this aside, I'm sure you still think they're sick fucks. thing you need to realize is that bands like slayer thrive on the reaction of people such as yourself.

same goes for cannibal corpse... yes their lyrics are quite gruesome/violent/disgusting. Disgusting as they are, they aren't meant to be taken seriously. Obviously there's a limit... I wouldn't go play the song ''Stripped, Raped and Strangled'' to one of Paul Bernardo's victims. But once again, Cannibal Corpse, and other similar bands such as Gorgasm, Skinless ect, write shocking lyrics just to be considered ''the most extreme band''.

Some bands I obviously don't approve.. Anal Cunt for example, they just piss me off. The difference with Cannibal Corpse is that this band MAKES FUN of rape victims, they are openly racist and are associated with a couple white power bands. And these guys don't even compare with other bands I'm sure I've yet to hear of...

trust me, slayer and cannibal corpse are totally harmless.

I know they are, they thrive on the attention they get after being called the sickest fucks. I still think it makes them sick fucks IMO though icon_wink.gif

They're basically giant trolls.

I find I hard to listen to a Cannibal Corpse song without laughing. It's so ridiculous. I mean "I come blood"... That actually could be cool... hmmm...


By the way, what happened to the people (person) at the start who actually liked Slayer. They may be a bit overrated, but SOME off there songs are classic (my opinion).

I agree. They released the same album for years and still managed to get off with it.


Umm no actually. Listen to a band before you judge them.

Terrible band in my opinion and completely hypocritical (please don't get me started), that being said they must have one of the most loyal followings in the world and have made it with NEVER being played by mainstream radio.

And does anyone else always seem to see the token Slayer T-shirt guy at every concert they go to?

I like Slayer and just want to see other peoples opinions about the?

PLEASE Don't post just to remind me that you think Slayer are all Nazi's or that people who listen to metal will go to hell or stuff like that.



ANGEL OF DEATH!!!! MONARCH TO THE KINGDOM OF THE DEAD!!!!!



and for the people who hate slayer, you DO know that they started out punk rock-ish; right?

so that should explain the hypocrisy, unless you don't understand satire.

Just because they started something, doesn't mean I have to like it.

Which I dont.. I don't like it.

At All.

Not like thats what you were saying... But yeah.. I can respect them for starting something.

I don't know who the f*ck am I quoting on this, but

If you get offended by Slayer, chances are that you deserve to be offended

Metal is not for pussies, you know...

BTW I'm a fan from the Seasons in the Abyss era... I was starting to get into metal when it was released, and it's still one of my favorite albums ever along with Reign in Blood)
