Haiku – Perchance to Mosh

Metal in my veins

Filled up with adrenaline

Blood filled energy

I know this probably won’t be super popular, but the opening line to this Haiku popped into my head earlier today. I had to do something with it so I wrote this. I’ve also been listening to a lot of Slayer recently. A band that I kind of ignored for many years because I thought they were just too Satanic for my blood. I realized that if you just get past the album covers and album titles that they have some truly great metal to listen to. I honestly believe that out of all the speed and thrash metal bands out there that they are among the fastest I have ever heard. I’ll include “Hallowed Point” as an example for you. Warning, it isn’t for the faint of heart and it isn’t for those who can’t take blistering fast music. Nuff said. Let’s do this.

So, thoughts on Slayer? I know there are a few of you out there who can answer this.
