    If we're talking extreme music in a heavy metal sense, wouldn't the next big ting so to speak ultimately be a band or individual that has achieved a following like Slayer. Their fanbase is one of the more fanatical ones out there. On top of that Slayer is the only one of the "big four" of the original core of speed-metal that hasn't changed their overall sound, nor are they called sell-outs.

    So yeah, I think whomever or whatever is out there has to get that Slayer Seal of Approval.

    I don't think in this day and age any one band will get as huge a following as any of the big four had. Our culture's gotten to fragmented and decentralized, we're all off listening to completely different things, and even within one basic genre like metal there's such huge variety that I don't think one single band can come along and make waves like they did.

    Slayer might not have sold out, but in a way I think their not changing at all is almost as bad, since they're now basically resting on their laurels. I saw them live and it was boring as hell, like they didn't have to make an effort on stage because just the fact that they're Slayer is enough, same with their music, they can churn out anything and people will buy it because it's Slayer.

    Slayer HAS changed, they're still playing the same genre of music but you can't listen to "Haunting the Chapel" and "God Hates Us All" back to back and then tell me they sound identical.

    Okay, if we've gotten to Slayer, then this excellent thread (thanks, Joe) has run its course.
