A live video of METALLICA members James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo performing the track "Battery" with SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo at the Download festival in England on June 6, 2004 has been posted online at YouTube.com. More footage — including interview clips with some of the other bands performing at the Download 2004 festival (such as DAMAGEPLAN, HATEBREED and ILL NINO) — can be found here.

METALLICA's regular drummer, Lars Ulrich, was taken to hospital with an undisclosed illness just hours before METALLICA were due to headline the festival. Rather than pull the show and risk a revolt from fans, METALLICA called upon SLAYER and SLIPKNOT drummers, Lombardo and Joey Jordison (respectively), alongside Ulrich's long-standing drum tech Flemming Larsen, to rescue the gig. Jordison played in his SLIPKNOT mask. You can watch a clip of Joey Jordison performing "Enter Sandman" with METALLICA at this location. Video of Jordison's rendition of "For Whom the Bell Tolls" with METALLICA can be viewed here.

I HATE YOU
ANGEL OF DEATH
RAINING BLOOD (of course)
ANTI-CHRIST

and like 2 more songs on god hate us all whom i forgot. you know i do consider now that god hate us all may be worth while to listen to. plz forgive if you think i actually thought slayer as a mere band but i don't know them that much. i need to know more of their albums names.

Actually, I'm a fan of Metallica myself. I just recognise the fact that they have nothing on Slayer. not since Cliff died, anyway. I enjoyed God Hates Us All a lot, actually. lol, I when I first told my mate about Slayer, he got Diabolicus in Musica or however that's spelt. I thought that was awesome, as I didn't have that album at the time, so I was able to listen to it through him. But after about three plays of the album, he pretty much wrote Slayer off as a shlt band - I wanted to deck him that badly, then and there. Lucky the bastard's my friend, he wouldn't have seen that king hit coming. Anyway, ramble, ramble, blah, blah, blah, etc etc Slayer are intense, I highly recommend you get into them just as soon as you possibly can.
