Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Reveals His Favorite Song by Slayer

In honor of the hugely-anticipated Big 4 Festival in Indio, California, on April 23, Revolver has put out The Big Four special collector’s issue, chronicling the history of thrash metal’s most legendary bands. The magazine is on newsstands now, as well as available online here. While making the issue, we talked to some of the Big Four’s most heralded musicians about their favorite songs from the other bands. Today, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine tells us about his favorite Slayer song.

“I just started recently getting into Slayer’s music because I was pretty much at odds with those guys for so long. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to hang out over the years, much to my loss. I’d have to say probably my favorite Slayer song is the one that they close with, ‘Angel of Death’ [off 1986’s Reign in Blood]. Yeah, I love the killer double-kick part at the end of that one.”
