Everyone’s Favourite Woolly liberals – Slayer!

Of all the places on the internet that I expected to see Slayer turning up on today, the Guardian’s website wasn’t one of them.

Never knowingly confused with Reckless Love – Los Angeles, California’s finest architects of aural hate, Slayer.

They have – shall we say – opposite views on things.  Kerry King doesn’t strike me as the world’s most liberal and progressive fellow and The Guardian isn’t where I would go to find out Metal news (snarky bobbins from people with several-barrelled names and nice jumpers, yes – metal, no).

That said, you can grab an MP3 mixtape from the Grauniad’s website to promote the Slayer-headlined “I’ll Be Your Mirror” festival and if you’ve never heard Raining Blood before, go nuts.  There’s also the mind-meltingly heavy likes of Wolves in the Throne Room, Melvins, Sleep and Mogwai to enjoy amidst a healthy selection of what can only be described as yawn-inducing indie cruft.  Still, it’s free…
