Kill 'Em All is great but it's no RTL, MOP or Justice in my opinion. Those 3 albums are the one's that really show the signature sound that Metallica had at one time. The only song I don't care for on The Black Album is NEM. Most of Load blows and Reload has some OK tracks on it. St. Anger sucks beyond all things that suck. The new one is very good at least they're trying to get back to doing some good metal again.

New Slayer sucks, not because people don't like them but because they are no longer a thrash band, they have become egotistical assholes and I could easily confuse their new shit with new lame bands like Children of Bodom, Lamb of God or Slipknot (I realize they don't actually sound too much like those bands, but they are of the same caliber of modern shitty metal.)
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? CI isn't my fave record either but it does sound like Slayer. And all those bands you mentioned are all clearly influenced by Slayer so...

While I respect your passion and knowledge of 80's thrash you're still wrong about Slayer. Their new cd is fast as balls from what I've heard. It's total Reign in Blood-ish from the 3 songs I have and I love all 3 of them.

I'm all about the faster the better with Sadus and Dark Angel being my favorite bands for years and Kill em all still being my favorite Metallica album but Sabbat doesn't belong in the same league as any of those bands to me.

They're worth checking out but having a dude in the band named Gizz Butt who left the band to join Prodigy isn't going to be cool to most metalheads.

I dig Prodigy and think the video for Smack my bitch up is the best music video ever made but when I want to take out aggression, I turn to Slayer.

I'm listening to a bootleg from the Hell Awaits tour now and Crypts of Eternity, Hardening of the Arteries, Show No Mercy and Praise of Death are faster and better than anything Sabbat could even think of doing in my opinion.

Lol.... That's a nice Slayer set, with the exception of the absence of Black Magic

and after reading 4 pages of this dispute, I feel I have to display my opinion now.

1. I have never heard a single song by Sabbat, but I've heard the name previously.
2. I enjoy new Slayer, but Blood Painted World(or whatever their new album is called), will never compare to Seasons, or their older, thrashier albums. (And I'm not saying that new Slayer isn't thrash, I'm saying that it's just not the same feeling).
3. Same with Metallica. Same with a bunch of other bands.
4. Da black album waz da besttttt IMO

So to sum up:

For most: Old Slayer > old Metallica > new Slayer > new Metallica > all Sabbat

For some: Old Metallica > old Slayer > new Metallica > new Slayer > all Sabbat

For Wizzbang11: All Sabbat > all Slayer > all Metallica

OK. We get it. Move on.


...and speaking of the above - and getting back on track with the actual topic of this thread, that setlist is phenomenal.

Wow, what a great thread ... I just had to reply!!!

Metallica, Slayer, Sabbat ... 3 of my fave bands (in that order too) (other than Maiden of course!!!)

For me Metallica did nothing between The Black Album and Death Magnetic. Both of which are great albums.
Load, Reload and St Anger (particularly St Anger) were nothing short of shite.
Kill Em All and Ride The Lightning are good, solid early days albums.
Master Of Puppets is a classic masterpiece.
Justice For All is a superb follow-up to Puppets - a rock solid album with awesome tracks.
The Black Album has some great songs too, albeit heading towards the more commercial side of life that they never should've gone down that culminated in St Anger (and nearly cost them everything) ... thank fuck Death Magnetic has saved them ... a great album.

As for Slayer ... Show No Mercy is a great debut album.
Hell Awaits, Reign In Blood, South Of Heaven and Seasons In The Abyss ... ... says it all.
Divine Intervention and Diabulus In Musica (what a shite name for a Slayer album for fucks sake!) are poor.
God Hates Us All returns us to "old" Slayer.
And Christ Illusion is nothing short of superb.
Can't wait for the next installment ... World Painted Blood

And then we have Sabbat ... being from the UK perhaps I know them better than some of you guys in the States?
For me they are a fantastic band you should check out if you enjoy thrash, great lyrics and tight live sets. Be prepared to have your ear drums ring for days after one of their live, intimate gigs!!!
Martin Walkyier is one of the most gifted lyricists I have ever come across and put him together with Andy Sneap - one of the most musically gifted people on the planet - and you have one hell of a band.
I honestly recommend checking out History Of A Time To Come and Dreamweaver
Most people prefer Dreamweaver but for me it is actually History ... that gets the nod from me.
They only did 3 albums (the other was Mourning Has Broken with Richie Desmond on vocals this time around) ... a good, solid album but Martin Walkyier he ain't!!!
Also try out the video (yes, video!!! ) The End Of The Beginning ... fucking brilliant gig. Watch out for a new DVD hopefully coming soon once Andy Sneap has finished with Megadeth's new album, EndGame

Hope I wasnt too long winded, but couldnt resist the right to reply!

Thanks for looking, guys!

You honestly think most people believe St. Anger to be superior to everything Sabbat has done?

And for me, it's more like:
Kill Em All/Ride the Lightning> All Sabbat (minus their last album)>Show No Mercy> Master of Puppets>Hell Awaits-Seasons> Justice> Everything else Slayer/Metallica have done

I'm thinking of checking Sabbat out I like the production work Andy Sneap has done on some of the albums i've heard him do so it will be cool to hear what he does musically.

Also the new Megadeth is finished I got it off a torrent site today
After one listen i can say that i like it better than the last one and Sneap's production is excellent. I'll still buy it though when it comes out next week.
