SLAYER Is NOT Replacing Tom Araya With Jason Newsted!!!
The main reason why Horns Up Rocks does not fool around on April Fools Day is because it can hurt our reputation as a reliable PROFESSIONAL news source. Also, we don't believe in posting false news in order to score web hits. And come on, it is very disrespectful towards you the fans, to mislead and misinform you.
Earlier this week, another website (that shall remain nameless) "pranked" a lot of Heavy Music fans by reporting that Jason Newsted (ex-METALLICA) was replacing Tom Araya on vocals and bass during SLAYER's upcoming Summer tour. This is false!
In the wise words of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, ex-SEPULTURA) "Don't, don't believe what you see... Don't, don't believe what you read". Specially if it is not Horns Up Rocks reporting it! \m/
