NIGHTWISH's Floor Jansen: SLAYER Is "Dreadful," "Unbelievably Boring"
Slayer fans are nothing if not passionate. Over the last 30 years, Slayer have evolved to be, in a way, the Lynard Skynard of heavy metal. You cannot escape a passionate yell of SLAYYYER at any metal concert you go to. The band is so prevalent, that sometimes it might come as a shock that not every metal fan enjoys them.
If you are prone to such shocks, brace yourselves. Nightwish frontwoman Floor Jansen was just interviewed by Metal Hammer and was asked about the most metal album she owns:
"I mainly listen to metal, so they are all metal albums. But the most metal? Some would say Slayer, but I think they're a dreadful band. Unbelievably boring. Terrible. Apparently it's not metal to say that, but it's a personal opinion."
She clarifies it is her personal opinion, you guys! I'm sure Slayer fans, known for their tact and class will take this news well.
Ultimately, if you are a Slayer fan, one other person's opinion of the band shouldn't tarnish your enjoyment, right? We all like what we like.
