As a longtime Slayer fan myself, I shall definitely be checking their new album out. I wasn’t all that blown away by their previous effort, I have to confess, so I’ll be interested to see if they redeem themselves with this one. On the subject of new releases, I just picked up a copy of Suffocation’s latest effort (after seeing that band play in my neck of the woods last night), but have yet to listen to it, so we’ll see how that one goes.
Ah, someone else who recognizes the musical genius that was Demolition Hammer! I really get into their stuff myself, and was always amused by the way a lot of their songs were actually quite educational, both in their subject matter (eg Neanderthal, Pyroclastic Annihilation, Omnivore) and vocabulary. Who says metal’s only for morons?
