Nza’s Review: Slayer – Live DVD 3 Pack Box Set – “Live Intrusion,” “Still Reigning,” & “War At The Warfield” Posted in Slayer on August 30, 2010 by gearsofrock
Upcoming Releases: Rammstein “Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da,” Slayer “World Painted Blood,” & Rob Zombie “Hellbilly Deluxe 2”Posted in Rob Zombie, Slayer with tags Music releases on October 17, 2009 by gearsofrock
Rammstein – Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da [Oct. 20, 2009] Never fully got into these guys, don’t consider myself a fan, but you can’t dislike their one hit track “Du Hast.” Have they released anything as powerful since? Not so much. Pre-release verdict: Rammstein’s music is always amusing from an American’s perspective. There is something about the aggression, hostility, and anger in their presentation of the German language.
Slayer – World Painted Blood [Nov.3, 2009] I have been looking forward to this album since last year’s release of the thrash punk track “Psychopathy Red” that was offered during the “Unholy Alliance” tour. Pre-release verdict: Slayer is legendary and is not capable of releasing bad thrash music. This could be in the running for best metal album of the year, even with its November 3 release date.
Rob Zombie – Hellbilly Deluxe 2 [2010?] Just got word today that Zombie pushed this release from Nov. 17 to next year. Why? Perhaps “What?,” the first single did not receive a great reception. Pre-release verdict: Weird delays like this make me very nervous. Probably won’t be as great as the original Hellbilly Deluxe or The Sinister Urge. Let’s see how the fall/winter tour progress.
2009 is really winding down now. Make sure you vote for the best hard rock and heavy metal album in the Gears of Rock poll. I am really looking forward to your picks. The results will be posted in December -Meds

Above is the only decent video with good audio that I could find from the Dimebag tribute. It is “A New Level” with Max Cavalera [Soulfly], King Diamond, Scott Ian [Anthrax], and Kerry King [Slayer]. Many people are thrashing on King Diamond’s backing vocals, I embrace them.
From what I have seen of this venue on YouTube, it really doesn’t seem like the greatest place to hold the only Ozzfest show of the year. You can probably see what I mean. There seems to be no good view of the stage and the location of the jumbo screens are not optimal. Then there is that ugly Pizza Hut logo on top of the stage. I am confident they will bring the show back on the road next year.
Pantera and Slayer at Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY, June 21, 2001
First of all the, this show’s lineup was just insane and does not require any explanation of its awesomeness. Pantera and Slayer on the same night…Can life get any better?
This was also the final time I got to see the legendary, Dimebag Darrell perform. I still have his guitar pick from this amazing concert that I caught, wrestled for, then bled on. Yes, the pick is still fully outfitted with my blood. Ah, memories.
