He got it from a spider, apparently.

"Necrotizing Fasciitis"

flesh decays
the arachnid's bite
has done the deed

Slow rot
skin betrays
the bones it was meant to protect

Tissue swells
inflamed epidermus
scratching won't help you heal

Skin color
progresses to violet
blisters now begin to form

necrotizing fasciitis
monomicrobial disease
necrotizing fasciitis
seek treatment clinically

solo - King

from a spider's bite
causing severe systemic illness

start them as soon as possible
to avoid the adjunctive therapy

include massive wounds
or least that's what Wikipedia tells me

might be the solution

Hanneman - solo

King - solo

necrotizing fasciitis
monomicrobial disease
necrotizing fasciitis
seek treatment clinically

haha seek treatment clinically

I wonder who's gonna replace him.

No one. No one could possibly replace him. Kerry King will just have to learn those solos.

What about a guitar playing heavy metal robot? That'd be something.

I think Ian Miller should step up. Slayer could use some twang.

That they could, whether they know it or not!

haha ok, I won't. It was only awful to me 'cause I hate things like that (goofball covers). Talented, sure, but I'm a stubborn jerk and my mind is made.

So out of this comes an odd collaboration. (http://www.metalinjection.net/latest-news/yes/slayer-exodus-kyuss-and-possibly-metallica-members-form-new-band)

"After spending the last two years filling in for Jeff Hanneman due to Jeff's nasty spider bite, Exodus guitarist Gary Holt looks to have bro'd down enough with Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo that the two have decided to start jamming on a new project.

Not only are Holt and Lombardo involved, but former Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri and Amen guitarist Casey Chaos are also involved. To top it all off, famed producer Ross Robinson (he of Deftones and Slipknot, and possibly Behemoth production fame) will be behind the boards."

""At one point, Dave stopped, listened back and said: 'That's the fastest drum track I think I've ever done!'"

So there.

I'm glad they have a stable bass player like Nick.
