The world of heavy metal has lost one of its pioneering guitarists.

Jeff Hanneman, one of the cofounders of Slayer, died today, the band announced on its website. He was 49.

"Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11 am this morning near his Southern California home," the statement reads. "Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed."

This news really shocked me. Reign In Blood and South Of Heaven are two of my favorite metal albums. I'll have to break them out this weekend and have a Slayer mini-marathon as a tribute. R.I.P. Jeff, and thanks for all the great music.

Metallica's lib, at least Lars and Hammett. Hetfield is anti-political anything - which is probably the majority of metal.

“uh, Metallica got their collective panties in a wad because their music was used in Gitmo interrogations. I guess Lars wanted to get paid for that too.”

According to the official Metallica website:

Clearing the Air
February 18, 2013

There has been a lot of talk recently about us asking the military not to use our music to “soften people up before interrogation”. We NEVER commented to the military either way on this matter. Any statements that have been made otherwise are not correct.
