Slayer spark controversy

Slayer has sparked controversy with a new track about 9/11 from the terrorists' viewpoint.
The California foursome were fed up with other band's American perspective of the attacks on New York and Washington DC in 2001, so they wrote their own unique version. Guitarist/songwriter Jeff Hanneman has angered September 11th victims' families with the extremist angled track "Jihad", which will be featured on their new album.

Guitarist Kerry King says: "In America every band under the sun has written their 9/11 song. And that's why I didn't want to have any part of it, but this is really cool. It kind of has an 'Angel Of Death' feel because it doesn't condemn anyone or say that anyone's right or wrong."
