Slayer is too gimmicky and they try way to hard to be vulgar. They have this whole "I hate God thing" and it gets really old. They have every right to express their opinion but from a lyrical standpoint it gets really old to write about the same thing over and over again. And now that they are writing a song about 9/11 from the terrorists standpoint I think they have gone too far with the lame gimmicks. If Slayer had to rely on just their music to build their fan base, they would have burned out long ago, their image is the only thing keeping them alive.

That right there is one of the single dumbest posts I've ever read! get your head out of your a**! Slayer created thrash metal, that's no gimmick. Slayer's music is regarded as being a major influence on death metal. None-the-less, through the higher pitched vocals in their songs (compared to the lower death metal range), notes their influence on black metal. S**t loads of premier black metal acts like Emperor or Mayhem name Slayer as a major influence. As for their "gimmicks," in a 2004 interview with Tom Araya, was asked about their lyrics, "Did critics realize you were wallowing in parody?", Tom Araya replied, "No. People thought we were serious!...Back then you had that PMRC(Parents Music Resource Center), who literally took everything to heart. When in actuality you're trying to create an image. You're trying to scare people on purpose". Those who disagree with the critics will tell you that Slayer has no Nazi sympathies or racist views, and point out that Tom Araya and Dave Lombardo are of Hispanic desent.
Slayer moves to challenge society's norms and problems, thus their lyrics seek to promote opposite ideals of tolerance and nonviolence. On top of that, Slayer is tied to the hardcore punk scene, which is totaly anti-racist.

I'm not going to quoute everyone, it's simply a waste of time and energy.

Ok first off, I never said Slayer was Nazi sympathizers or racists. I've listened to all of their albums straight through, and I liked one for awhile, but like I said earlier I grew out of it and sold it for 3 dollars.

As for me not being a metal fan, your the one who isn't a metal fan. I said I didn't like your band and why and you couldn't handle it. I'm more of a real metal fan then half the people at my school who listen to Slayer, in fact of all the people who I know that listen to Slayer, I can only think of 3 who actually like them for the music and not the cheap little gimmic they portray, and thats cool.

Oh and Slayer having invented thrash metal?!! You have to be out of your mind or on some serious drugs to even think they invented thrash metal. Thrash metal culminated over a slow period of time begining with Kill 'em All, and is really just a mesh of parts of Diamond Head and Motorhead. You can't really credit any one band for the creation of thrash metal, but if I had to pick two people it would be James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine, who were working on the material for Kill 'em All back in 1981. Oh and you say that they aren't gimmicky, but this "national slayer day" on 6/6/06 is a prime example, and if thats not a gimmick, I don't know what is. And what norms of society do they challenge that they think they can better?

Ok now lets assume that you like the early stuff Reign in Blood and so forth, thats cool, the album has appeal to it, not my tastes but w/e. They never really changed their music, they slowed down a bit and Tom started sucking less at "singing" but other than that they have been cranking out the same over formulated album over and over again, the only exception being South of Heaven.

On a side note I heard a cover of Electric Funeral by Slayer and it made me sad that Tom has the ability to sing that well, but instead he does...whatever he does on all the Slayer albums.
