Band Photo: Slayer (?)

During a recent interview with "The Metal Show", heard live on 92.3 FM WXRK in Cleveland, SLAYER vocalist Tom Araya slammed STATIC-X while discussing their performance during a tour with SLAYER, PANTERA, MORBID ANGEL and others. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

The Metal Show: It's not like the SLAYER fans are very giving when it comes to anybody but you guys playing.

Tom Araya: "Well, they kind of are, especially if you're good. You know…they'll give into you."

The Metal Show: I don't know, man. I saw you guys here on the tour with PANTERA and STATIC-X where STATIC-X got booed right off the stage while people were chanting "SLAYER!"

Tom Araya: "Dude, come on. You're talking about STATIC-X. (laughing a lot) One night…it's pretty understandable why they got booed (Laughs)."

The Metal Show: Very nice, man, I’m sure they are thrilled to hear that.

Tom Araya: "I'm sure they will be! (Laughs)."

You can hear the interview in its entirety at Pitriff.com (Real Player required). This specific exchange can be heard about 9 minutes, 3 seconds into the conversation.

Shadow Zone, are you fvcking kidding me?!! Wisconsin Death Trip and Machine tag-team Shadow Zone all night long, baby! and they're not even particularly excellent metal albums. okay, i DO like Static-X, and I DO like Slayer, but i'm not about to compare them; they're in completely different genres, making completely different styles of music.

i think the best thing about this interview is how Araya just keeps laughing at them. that's just amusing. made me laugh too.

its quite obvious this guy is an idiot, every slayer album has sounded the same predictable trash every time, tom araya needs singing lessons badly!!!!
oh yer as a lyricist he is completly pethetic, windging and whinig about how he hates jesus and how satan rulz gets old really really really fast!!! anyone who thinks he is a talented song writer shuld get a life!!!!
TOM ARAYA I HOPE U READ THIS!!!! BECAUSE U R TRULY THE WORST SINGER IN METAL!!! GO GET A LIFE OR GO JUMP OF A CLIFF I DONT CARE p.s. the rest of the members in slayer are pethetic and need to get a life also (especially kerry king) peh!

To Post 15...

Are you a f***ing idiot? Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon, and Thine Eyes Blind are nu-metal? You moron. Those bands don't come CLOSE to being nu-metal or metalcore. Besides, Slayer wouldn't let a bunch of crappy nu-metal/metalcore bands on their tour anyway.

I think the best band they got on this besides Slayer is Children of Bodom. They are RIDICULOUSLY talented. One of the best new generation metal bands I've heard. Go figure, almost all of the best metal comes from England and the Scandanavian countries.

The Unholy Alliance tour they got this year looks great. Only five bands on this tour and it already outdoes Ozzfest 2006 on so many levels. I'm there for Slayer, Lamb of God, and Bodom baby. \m/

Even if you dont like Slayer (i love em, personally), you've got to respect them for being one of the few bands that came out of the glam metal era and hasnt ever given up their sound or style for anyone or anything. that's what being true metal is all about. well, unless your sound/style was commercial in the first place (ie Static-X).

I think it's pretty obvious why slayer went on tour with static x. at the time static x brought in a younger crowd, so slayer's producer and probably slayer themselves decieded hey lets make some more money. that doesn't mean a band sells out, that means that its still just a bunch of guys playing music to make a living which they have been. Now if your going to say slayer already has a big following which they, due, but most people seem to miss the buisness end of music since its a buisness. why not bring ayounger crowd show them what really metal is, and make more money from it. I dont see why anyone would reject this idea and if they do, there stupid. well thats just my two cents. but I agree slayer is a better band then static x

Hey, i have a question. Do you dipsh**s who hate static x for no reason i've been able to find yet get paid to blow things out of proportion? or do you enjoy bashing a band i'll bet you've never truly listened to. first of all, i agree that slayer is one hell of a band. secondly, no, they are NOT 10000 times better than static x, as all you f***ing neo gothic loosers claim. finaly, to the guy who says they're all pedophiles, that was ONE OF THEM, HE ISNT THERE ANYMORE AND THEY HAVE CUT CONTACT WITH HIM. oh, another thing, HE WAS DRUNK AS sh**. do YOU idiots make good choices after 2/3 of a bottle of vodka?
