*NEW Metal Bulletin #30*

Tom Araya and Slayer come out the closet...As it turns out Slayer is just a bunch of posers after all.

( In the musical subcultures of heavy metal and punk, the word "poseur" (or "poser") is a pejorative term used to describe "a person who habitually pretends to be something he/she is not." In a 1993 profile of heavy metal fans' "subculture of alienation", the author noted that the scene classified some members as "poseurs," that is, heavy metal performers or fans who pretended to be part of the subculture, but who were deemed to lack authenticity and sincerity.)

Tom is a born again christian. We have known this for a while now. We wanted to pass along the word in case you missed it. So Slayer is now Haunting The Gospel (preach brother). What's Next Slayer w/ Stryper - The hell with the devil tour! Who's next Deicide frontman, Glen Benton ( that would be funny cause he has a f**king upside down cross burnt into his forehead ) becomes born again with Dave Mustaine already in the club.

Lets make it Slayer, Deicide, Megadeth, Stryper - To hell and back tour!   It’s a farce, an absolute joke. There’s no one with any sincerity, no one real. But we love you! no, really we do. We understand you have feeling, thoughts and ideas...

You might be asking yourself.. 'Well, if he is Christian, then what the f**k is with all those inverted crosses and pentagrams on their albums and all shit?'See we told. Well, Kerry is an atheist does that make you feel better? *More on Atheist (band) on a later date*

SLAYER frontman Tom Araya spoke to the Denver Westword about his band, his voice, prison letters, child rearing, God, world music and exploiting Satan for fun and profit. Several excerpts from the interview follow:

Westword: Do you still get letters from incarcerated people? 

Tom Araya: "Yeah. They're pretty out there. It's like 'Man, dude, maybe it's a good thing you are in jail.' They're genuine letters. I know that they're kids. It's great that SLAYER inspires them to carry on. There's hope. Which is really odd to be saying. People say that listening to SLAYER has helped them along in crucial parts of their life. I've gotten letters from Marines and different branches of the military. They're pretty trippy, too. Actual accounts of them in Iraq listening to SLAYER while they're doing what they do. I'd like to think that it's the music giving them aggression and strength. It kind of recharges your batteries. It's like some of these athletes that we've met listen to SLAYER to get 'em pumped up. Mostly in hockey and football."

Westword: What's the biggest misconception people have about SLAYER? 

Tom Araya: "The obvious one: the Satan stuff. I'm not here to fault anybody. And I hate to say this, but Christ came and taught us about love. About doing unto others. That was his preach: Accept each other for who we are. Live peacefully, and love one another. Period." 

( Motherf**ker I wonder where we got that impression from? )

Westword: Do you believe in God? 

Tom Araya: "I believe in a supreme being, yeah. But He's an all-loving God." 

Westword: Can you see how people might miss that message in your music? 

Tom Araya: "Yeah. And I don't fault them for that. Songs are open for interpretation, you know? It's like we can both be looking at a flower, but the information that we absorb is different about that flower." 

( No, Tom art is open to interpretation NOT a flower?)

Westword: But SLAYER is not about spreading the love. 

Tom Araya: "SLAYER's about what we enjoy. Putting together some really cool songs. Like on 'God Hates Us All'. There's some really good stuff in there lyrically that just blows my mind. That's something that intrigues me about what I write. The serial-killer stuff is like, 'What thought process led you to this?' It's like everyone has been asking for a sign. The Twin Towers were a fuckin' sign! Actually [September 11, 2001] was the release date of 'God Hates Us All'. We did a midnight signing at a Tower Records. They had over 3,000 kids there. We were supposed to fly out the next day and start a tour in Europe."
