When we got into metal, thrash metal was HUGE. There were great bands like Testament, Metallica, Megadeth, Antrhax and our personal favorites Slayer. The main reason why we loved Slayer more than the others was mostly because of Dave Lombardo over-the-top drumming style. And they were also slightly more nasty and "evil" than the others. A great dark image.
We didn't listen to all their stuff, most of it was just too noisy for us. But when they took it down a notch, and you could hear the power of their riffs, they were excellent. Their image, guitar sound and drumming was amazing, and it influenced us a lot.
