Metallica James Hetfield One 8-Bit art

The gang at Loudwire teamed up with the folks over at Filthy Frackers to create a video of a “what if” NES-style 8-bit video game featuring the thrash metal giants of The Big 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax.

The 83-second 8-bit animated video with chiptune audio features Metallica’s “One,” including scenes from the video of the band members as well as the footage from the Johnny Got His Gun movie; Slayer’s “Raining Blood” (with the band in a live performance sequence); Megadeth’s “Sweating Bullets,” which showcases frontman Dave Mustaine’s multiple personalities from the video; and Anthrax’s “Madhouse,” with zany footage from that music video, as well as guest appearances from retro gaming characters.

Watch the video here below.

Slayer Rescue Cat From Indianapolis Street

Slayer: legendary thrash metal band, angels of death, servants of the dark lord, and… rescuers of kittens? I grew up outside of Indianapolis, Indiana, and woke up this morning to find that my childhood friend Dave Fox had sent me this awesome story which ran originally in Indy’s alternative newspaper Nuvo. It seems that heavy metal icons Slayer and their entourage came to the rescue of one defenseless feline before their recent show at The Old National Centre in Indianapolis.

Nuvo’s music blogger Katherine Coplen got the full story from Old National Centre spokesperson Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald.

In honor of the fact that I am taking my 12 year-old son and his friend to see Slayer, Exodus, and Suicidal Tendencies at The Forum in Los Angeles tomorrow night, this week’s Thrashback Thursday thrashes all the way back to where it started for me. I was about their age when I went down that heavy metal rabbit hole. Slayer and early Metallica were like a godsend for a hormonal teenage boy to headband his aggressions, frustrations, and angst out to. May the metal be as kind to the kids as it’s been to me all of these years.

With the opening track of their brilliant 1984 EP Haunting The Chapel here is the mighty Slayer with “Chemical Warfare.”
