System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan was recently interviewed by Metal Hammer and revealed his favorite Metallica & Slayer albums and compared these iconic albums from his perspective.
As you might check out the statements of John, he indicated that Metallica’s legendary album ‘…And Justice For All’ is his favorite ‘tallica record ever.
Here is what he said:
“Apart from the fact that there is no bass on it, it is the most complete set of songs that that band has ever written. The most complete, the most complex, there was so much fire in their bellies as they had just lost Cliff Burton.
So, I think emotionally it was where they were at their best. But, for me, it’s them at their most perfect, nothing can come before, and nothing has come since where they nailed it. They extended everything and for me, it is their apex.”
He continued by saying Slayer is on the same point when their famous album ‘South of Heaven’ was released. Here’s the rest of the statement:
“It had a huge effect on me as it is the most melodic Slayer album. I think that Slayer and Metallica were on the same point when this record came out, but Metallica was always more melodic, and I think the reason that they got so much bigger over the years is that Slayer abandoned the melody and went off into so many other directions, whereas Metallica just went further with the melody.”
