I always thought that was their Christmas song.

Well, Raining Blood is one of the greatest works of art of our time, and I'm not sure a crass house decoration is the best...NAH - THAT RULED!

In fact, I could not imagine Christmas lights being remotely awesome before seeing that even if I tried. Very nicely done! Especially the insanity during the noise leads at the end. SLAYER!

Can't wait for Pantera. That was amazing.

P.S. THIS IS MY DAUGHTERS ACCOUNT SO DONT PAY ATTENTION TO THE GIRLY STUFF!!!! SLAYER RULES

Oh man.

Christmas lights (and maybe sports-themed bodypaint/costuming) are the only bits of artistic expression we let straight men have in America, it seems. Now technology has helped us reach the baroque period of Christmas decor.

And it is kick-ass.

Household conversation during our viewing:

"You know, this is [REDACTED SLAYER-LOVING FRIEND] in 30 years, Mr. F."

"Post that shit to Facebook and it'll be [REDACTED SLAYER-LOVING FRIEND] next year, honey."

"...right, I'll get right on that."

Holy shit, I just realized it's been 24 years since Reign in Blood came out.

Holy shit, I just realized it's been 24 years since Reign in Blood came out.

The Still Reigning DVD records their 2004 performance of the entire album in concert. Dave Lombardo, who was 39 at the time, occasionally looks like he's going to have a heart attack.

Um. Holy crap I'm a freak. I work in a sweetshop that just got a Slayer espresso machine and I thought that was what this FPP was talking about. Nope.

I read this as SLAYER! KITTENS! SLAYER KITTENS LIGHTS LIGHTORAMA!

I was somehow expecting christmas style laser cats. Was so confused when I clicked on the link and didn't see any kittens. Love the link though!

I see where I switched things. Slayer kittens would still be awesome.

I watched it until I passed out from the awesomeness. Or perhaps the epilepsy.

Crap, why can't I find the lovely recording Slater made of Winter Wonderland online?

Christmas + metal = TINSEL!

Heavy Tinsel
Death Tinsel
Thrash Tinsel
Black Tinsel
Power Tinsel

Just doesn't carry the same weight somehow.

Finally, an Arduino project worthy of the chase.

But... every hour, on the hour? Until Christmas Day, you say?

Am I missing build info somewhere?

Please tell me the genius who made this posted some info on how he built/programmed it. I am so fascinated. And overwhelmed by the awesome.

I thought the Thriller one was much better -- the animated faces are really what pushes it over the top.

The Thriller guy says he used Light-O-Rama; based on the similarity of some of the light effects I'm guessing this one does too. (I admit discovering this is available out of the box takes some of the fun out of it for me: it's not genius, just disposable income)

A guy down the street does this every Christmas with "Bohemian Rhapsody," a rotating Clash song, and Mannheim Steamroller.
