    Unhappy A legend has died today...

    Earlier this morning around 11 A.M. a very legendary and influential guitarist for Slayer, Jeff Hanneman passed away from liver failure. I am sorry to announce this. I now ask that we share our respects towards this awesome and talented man. May he rest in peace. Thank you, everyone.

    Slayer is one of my favorite bands. They are an integral part of my teenage years and of my surviving high school. Neither happened too long ago for me. Jeff Hanneman, to me, was the best songwriter of Slayer. Postmortem, Raining Blood, Angel of Death, Seasons in the Abyss, South of Heaven... Hanneman was the riff writer for all these songs and I don't think he got enough credit.

    I know Slayer was different without Lombardo, but I still like them and listen to their Lombardo-less stuff. Some of the songs on God Hates Us All are definitely good jams. But I don't believe I can imagine a Slayer without Hanneman. I know he was on sabbatical before his unfortunate passing and someone else was playing in his place, but I just don't think I could take hearing new Slayer tracks that don't feature his playing or his writing.

    Of course, it wouldn't surprise if the folks at Slayer continue on. It would be the metal thing to do, I think. And God bless 'em if that's what they choose.

    But I'll take the Devil any day. Hail Hanneman. R.I.P.

    RIP. My first Slayer album was South of Heaven, and along with Seasons in the Abyss, it still is my favorite. I guess I've always liked their melodic stuff more. Hanneman and Kerry King had quite a unique way of "passing a solo", the lead starting by King and on the fly carried on by Hanneman, (or vice versa). That was really something.
