Nightwish Singer Reacts To Backlash Over Slayer Jibe was a Top 3 story on Wednesday: (Metal Hammer) Nightwish singer Floor Jansen has responded to the "fury" generated by her recent comments that "Slayer are a dreadful band." Last week TeamRock reported how Jansen called thrash band Slayer "dreadful," "unbelievably boring" and "terrible" when asked to name the most metal album she owns.

She gave the original comments in Metal Hammer magazine's regular light-hearted feature, The Metal Test. And after Slayer fans reacted angrily to her comments, Jansen wrote on Instagram: "Apparently I unleashed the fury upon metal earth when I was asked a question about the most metal album I own.

"Thinking Slayer's music is not my thing doesn't mean I don't respect the band for what they are and what they've done. I just won't play it. As I can imagine they won't listen to mine either for that matter."

Jansen also claims that TeamRock's news story took her comments "out of context." She adds: "The reaction this triggered online saddens me. We are all entitled to our own opinion. But this sentence about my metal albums was put out of context, blown up and used for pathetic 'shock purposes'.

Does that mean I need to keep my mouth shut next time, no. Does it mean I need to be offended by so many whom I didn't offend? No...I don't like Slayer. Shall we get over that now?" Read more - here.
