Setlist Breaks my (black) Heart
Attended last nights show and was pretty disappointed with the setlist. Cool that they played so many old jams from the days before Reign in Blood, and crushed that they wasted my time with songs after Seasons.
It was an odd mix, and it makes me wonder who they were targeting. I feel like none of the old school fans give a shit about "Disciple" and "World Painted Blood", and none of the people who like those songs know the old shit anyway.
The most disappointing part was that they played only 3 songs off Reign in Blood, and any clown could guess which three. Plus they broke apart the "Postmortem" into "Raining Blood" combo, which should be illegal.
To me, it seems like they tried to blend a setlist for the old school fans and for less informed fans, and therefore played a mediocre set.
To be fair, the only reason I'm so bitter is because Slayer fuckin' rocks. But they earned that high standard, and their job is to live up to it.
Last night, they did not.
