“Another song about the refusal of God, which I think is an interesting concept. A lot of people would disagree with me on this song – ‘Oh, no, the early stuff, the early stuff’ – but I think it’s one of Slayer's greatest ever.
“The album is called God Hates Us All, and it came out in 2001 on 9/11. It’s a cry-out in that we’re all in this thing by ourselves, and whatever we’re cursed by in life is ours alone to deal with.
“It’s got the quintessential Slayer solo, this cluster of angry notes that sounds like somebody having an aneurysm. It reminds me of nerve endings dancing around. There’s a breakdown where Tom Araya says, ‘I keep my Bible in a pool of blood, so none of its lies will affect me.’ So we know where this is coming from. Slayer don’t hide what they’re talking about.”
