    Needs to be cleaned, and the bar isn't being photogenic, but I don't mind it too much. The symmetry is a little odd (getting SG meets superstrat vibes), but I don't hate it.

    Eh. I just can't get past the obnoxious "teenager with a whammy bar in Guitar Center" nature of their solos. I also felt like they tried way too hard to be "cool," and just aren't.

    While the second half is debatable (I mean I like classic Slayer), I think it's probably just because they were the ones who did it the craziest (Satriani got close, but didn't do the constant horse effects, just "screams"), people thought it was cool, and then picked up a floyd guitar in Guitar Center. I feel the same way about Hans Zimmer; he's cool and all, but I have a hard time listening to his scores because of how many people imitated him, thus making him sound generic to himself, which ain't his fault he was so popular.

    And honestly, if there's anything I was more annoyed with in Kerry's solos, it's the really out of place semi-pentatonic patterns he always plays at the highest frets. It's the same ones every time, but IDK anyone who bothered transcribing it. At least when he added in some tapping, things got more interesting. But the atonal stuff ended up becoming their signature, and they ain't Slayer without them. Well, as long as you have Tom's yells, you still got Slayer.

    ^Looks like it's 'time' to burn that thing and bury the ashes.

    Was the green one with bevels an early Kiesel?

    I don't see the problem with this one.

    On the assumption that it's silly on purpose, it's a very good silly.
