- Slayer’s cred: they’re one of the most influential bands of all time, double Grammy-winners, and the progenitors of vicious speed metal
- How vicious: Columbia refused to release their seminal 1986 album Reign of Blood; the band’s 2006 album Christ Illusion was forbidden from the entire nation of India
- How speedy: Reign of Blood was performed at an average of 220 beats per minute
- Where MTV ranked Slayer on its list of Top 100 metal bands of all time: number six
- Why: “Inspired by classic metal, hardcore punk, horror movies and a hunger to destroy, the band wrote brutal, unrestrained songs that were disturbing, controversial and took heavy metal to new extremes.”
- What it sounds like: a chainsaw to the head with double bass drumming, irregular scales, and shouted lyrics
- Lyrics about what?: serial killers, satanists, warfare
- What Jonathan Davis of Korn said: “Hell Awaits… had all this backward-masking stuff, and I’d be spinning the record backwards and they’d be saying, ‘Join us, join us…’ I was sold, man. I loved it.”
- What to do if you start hearing the concert backwards: accept that this is your life now<p>
