Finally, the Thirty-Minute Version of Slayer’s “Angel of Death” You’ve Been Waiting For
What did you get Reign in Blood for its recent thirtieth birthday? We got it the world’s foremost Slayer scholar to debunk a bunch of myths and misconceptions about it. It was very appreciative, but it did also seem like it was hoping for something a little less academic. Hey, we get it! Some of us are indoor kids. Reign in Blood is an outdoor kid.
So the record will probably appreciate this gift from fan Andrew Liles: a thirty-minute-long version of “Angel of Death.” It’s like 95% the song’s most famous riff on a loop. The effect is that it starts being funny, stops being funny, and then starts being funny again. It also dares you to try and headbang for half an hour without breaking your neck. It’s a real roller coaster ride of emotion and a test of stamina.
And in case you’re wondering, no — this is not Liles’ first foray into crazy-long versions of classic metal songs.
