Slayer Lullaby Album Coming Next Week

And it comes to this

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star, the company behind a ton of releases which basically convert rock and metal songs into lullabies, announced that next week they’ll ruin Slayer’s songs.

Just as they have with Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Rush’s songs.

I have heard some of these albums. I’ve got nieces and nephews. They’re almost always unlistenable.

Like, it’s funny for a minute. But then it immediately becomes fucking annoying. Especially when they massacre metal tunes.

Lullaby Versions Of Slayer drops August 14 on Roma Music Group.

The disc will feature all the classics: “South Of Heaven,” “Seasons In The Abyss,” “Raining Blood” and “Angel of Death.”

Other songs on the set include “Spill The Blood,” “World Painted Blood,” “Disciple,” “Skeletons Of Society,” “War Ensemble,” “Dead Skin Mask,” “Hell Awaits,” and “Black Magic.”

You can hear samples here.

I can’t wait until Mastodon cash the check and their lullabies are transformed into unlistenable tripe.

Who’s next? Death? Immortal? Mayhem? Burzum? Steel Panther?

    Even converted into lullabies, Slayer’s songs sound too evil to be soothing to babies.  Maybe.  I was playing South of Heaven in my car with my son in the back seat when he was about 2 weeks old.  He didn’t seem to mind.

    Argh!!! Slayer will be good, but I just listened to their rendition of YYZ. I’ll have to add it to my list of rush songs, or rather – wait until I compile the top 20 worst cover songs of all time :)

    For some of us who have GF/Wives that hate heavy metal, this is brilliant for us.
