Jeff Hanneman, one year gone

In what will surely be an annual thing like Dimebag, Dio or Peter Steele, today we bow or bang our heads at the memory of Mr. Jeff Hanneman of Slayer.  One year since his death the metal world is still very divided over whether Slayer should still continue. MetalSucks ran an awesome piece today featuring every song Jeff wrote music and lyrics for, Here.

My favorite tribute was from thrash legends Cryptic Slaughter (at one point in the 80′s surpassing Slayer as the champions of speed), who posted the above photo on their Facebook and the following message:

One year ago today the metal world lost one of the greats! Without his killer riffs and SLAYER, there would be no CS. In honor of Jeff, crank SLAYER all day!!!!!!!!! R.I.P. Jeff!!!
