*sighs* as has been explained countless times here on the MU; the story picks up the pics based on the names mentioned in the article. Since Dave Lombardo of Slayer was mentioned in the article and Slayer has more hits that Apocalyptica the system attaches the article to the Slayer pic (or vice versa). The administration, staff and regulaer users here at MU believe that it's more important to bring the metal news than it is to show the latest and greatest publicity shot for any particular band. If it's pictures you seek, navigate your way over to the photo gallery. Thanks for playing, now go fvck yourself.

That plus the fact that the guys in Apocalyptica are pretty ugly and they don't show pics of ugly dudes around here.

I've heard 2 tracks already, sounds pretty promising.

MuDvAyNefan: Clearly I am not the person that posted the story (darkstar did). So i'm not really sure why you're calling ME the dumbass. Nobody is responsible for posting pics with their stories here. In fact, I don't believe the site is set up to have that capability even if a writer wanted to. If you truely want to know the in's and out's of MetalUnderground I suggest you scroll down and click on "contact us" and address your questions directly to the owner of the site (DeathBringer). It's not my site and it's not my call, so again if it's pretty pictures you seek go to the photo gallery. The photo gallery here is an award winning gallery and i'm sure you can find plenty of pictures in there to smack your pathetic little hog around with.
