lol. I don't think his abilities are very good. He plays with his fingers on "Show No Mercy". He does a few riffs mimicking some guitar that might be a tad bit challenging...but nothing too special.

I dont think that there is one good bass player that also does vocals, except Geddy Lee.

Yeah, lame topic indeed. Maybe you should look for more into half decent metal bassists..which are well...almost everyone except Tom Araya.

What he does with his bass is perfectly fitting with Slayer's music.

so youre fine with just doing the bare minimum, and not over achieving in life?
I hope you dont take yourself seriously as an aspiring musician, because you wont make it very far in the business at all with that state of mind.

just accepting the mimimum gets you a C average, which even thou can make you the president of the united states apparently. But it wont help you anywhere else. trust me.

There's a difference between getting by in life on a C average and doing what's best for a song. A lot of bassists here think that the best thing to do would be to come up with the most exciting bassline for every song, but a lot of the time what Tom does will end up being better for the song and the band, even if it's not as great a showcase for a bassist. There's a lot to be said for doing what the song needs, and not ruining it by doing more any more than you would by doing less.

Of course, in Tom's case it seems to be a lack of talent and imagination as a musician, which can't exactly be lauded. But, at least he knows what he can do and doesn't do anything to detract from the song or band.

Indeed. On Hell Awaits his basslines (and bassplaying) is quite great, some of the riffs on Necrophiliac/Kill Again/At Dawn they Sleep... Dayumn shizzle.

Im not saying that you should kill yourself on every song from exhaustion.
Just push yourself.
If you're telling me that a better bassplayer wouldnt make slayer a better band as a whole than you are full of shit.
Dont take examples from lemmy and araya's bass playing, they're mediocre bassists. NEVER accept a plateau in your abilities.
