I think that list is hit-and-miss. Some definite classics in there, but personally I can’t stand PANTERA. I’m surprised he picked God Hates Us All, SLAYER’s early work seems much more in his style. I know he’s stated his appreciation for BATHORY before, it’s too bad they didn’t make the list. It’s good to see MERCYFUL FATE in there though, I always knew the line in \"Tarantula\" was a (not-so) veiled reference to their album Don’t Break the Oath.
As a black/death metal fanatic, I wish there was a bit more of that in there, haha.
