The MetalSucks Podcast #25: Special Guest Tom Araya of Slayer
Tom Araya of the legendary Slayer is our guest this week; we speak about life in small town Texas where he lives, his family and experience with loss surrounding Jeff Hanneman and how it has affected his songwriting, and why bands need to get over themselves and lose the egos.
We talk about Broken Hope’s apology to Glen Benton of Deicide (and take a little credit for working through the drama), we examine Brandan Schieppati of Bleeding Through’s letter of disappointment to himself and his fans and hope he isn’t trying to slit his wrists because of a Facebook comment, and we discuss whether bands should stick to the hits on tour, play full albums, or just perform the new stuff.
