Guess it would be cool to see these old timers do one last hurrah, maybe. Kinda pride myself on somehow never having heard a note of Sepultura with green on vocals. It's become a thing now that hopefully I'll see out.

Apparently Sepultura was supposed to be on the "Clash of the Titans" tour in 1991 with Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax. I think Sepultura being on the bill instead of Alice in Chains then would've made sense because, not only are Sepultura influenced by all the "Big Four" thrash bands, but they had just put out "Arise" and were about to be huge.

The article also made me think, "I guess that explains why Sepultura is rumored to be on some new Clash of the Titans tour with Megadeth, Slayer and Testament."

How many times, ST won’t happen. Lombardo plays for them, hello?


Lombardo left Slayer over money issues. King is a businessman. Neither of them seem to particularly hate the other. If King thought it'd make money he wouldn't leave it on the table just because Lombardo wanted a new business model for Slayer.

It looks like this tour is a no-go. Blabbermouth.net just posted an article on Slayer, Testament, Anthrax, Lamb of God and Behemoth touring together this summer.

Also, Dave Mustaine recently said Megadeth should be in the studio around this summer to start recording a new album that's supposed to be out next year. So, I suppose this "Clash of the Titans" tour won't happen until after Megadeth, Slayer, Testament and Sepultura release new albums. That would've been either 2019 or 2020-ish.

It looks like this tour will never happen. Slayer just announced they're doing one last tour.

Ultimate Guitar now says this tour might be Slayer's very last one, though I think either Overkill or Kreator should do the tour instead of Sepultura.

Aye, if the line-up consists entirely of bands who've released nothing but mediocrity in the last twentyfive years, it will make for a much more cohesive experience for the attendees.

Can't see Slayer going out on a support slot but also can't see Megadave being happy about not headlining that lineup.

Megadeth played under Slayer on the Fab Four tour, didn't they?

Yes, and on any of their other recent appearances with Slayer. I know there hasn't been to many but they definitely went on before them in the US/Canada on a few dates with Testament. King even played a track with Megadeth on those shows so I'd say they couldn't give a fuck really. A paycheck's a paycheck.

I think Testament is the only band out of this lineup that hasn't released anything considered mediocre in over the last 25 years. Their last two albums "Dark Roots of Earth" and "Brotherhood of the Snake" are great albums.

We'll agree to disagree, I thought they were shite, personally. Formation of Damnation had nothing to say either.

Brotherhood of the Snake has to be the worst album title I have ever heard.
