Yeah, maybe in 1986

Your parents are twats, just sayin'.

Also, you definately had waaaay too high expectations. Especially since Araya can't even headbang anymore.

To be honest, I was a little underwhelmed when I saw them on the Mayhem fest last year, but for me there were a few reasons that came into play;
1. I was tired/thirsty (After hours upon hours of waiting with Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, and Killswitch Engage playing in a row before Slayer's set, I think anyone would be fucking dead).
2. Manson fans in the crowd (Do I really need to explain?).

They still played a great set though. Hopefully when I see them next month with hopefully a real thrash crowd (considering it's them with Megadeth and Testament, I'm not so worried) it will be a better show.

Slayer were fantastic on the first date of the Mayhem fest, just as I expected them to be, although I have lower expectations for Carnage.

Fucking tell me about it. So many awesome shows got fucked up for me because of tiredness/dehydration. Testament in Jersey last year, Lamb of God/As I Lay Dying, and the first time I saw Metallica (missed the first half of Puppets and a great spot to get water ) comes to mind.

I was on the lawn for Slayer. Sure you can't really tell whats going on up there, or see the people clearly, but it's still fucking Slayer and they played a killer set, so I have no qualms about their performance at Mayhem, I'm just glad I got the chance to see metal legends that helped shape my interest in metal live.

I would definitely like to see them sometime again though, but my dumbass city doesn't have anywhere for bands of that size to play.

I saw them again last November, though it was in seats, which was pretty lame, especially the fans. That's the one thing I hate about Metallica; the stupid "fans" that go to their shows but only know the fucking singles from the Black Album. Really, I must have been the only person in my section headbanging and singing along to "Fight Fire With Fire" and "Whiplash." The next time they come around I'm probably gonna have to get a goddamn Metclub account, so I can actually get GA.

I've given it some thought, but my parents probably won't let me drive out there
