NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen says that SLAYER is “a dreadful band” whose music is “unbelievably boring.”
The Dutch vocalist’s comments were part of an interview for Metal Hammer ‘s regular light-hearted feature “The Metal Test” in which she was asked to name the most metal album she has ever owned. Jansen responded: “I mainly listen to metal, so they are all metal albums. But the most metal? Some would say SLAYER, but I think they’re a dreadful band. Unbelievably boring. Terrible. Apparently it’s not metal to say that, but it’s a personal opinion.”
Jansen revealed in September that she was four months pregnant. The singer’s partner is SABATON drummer Hannes Van Dahl.
Jansen, who officially joined NIGHTWISH in 2013, recently shot down speculation that NIGHTWISH‘s upcoming year-long break in 2017 has something to do with tension between members of the group. The vocalist also dismissed rumors that she will leave the band after welcoming her first child in early 2017. She told Mariskal Rock TV: “No, I won’t [quit NIGHTWISH]. I love this way too much; don’t worry. You don’t even have negative speculations one way or another. Things are great, and let’s keep on doing this forever.”
