Nightwish singer Floor Jansen has responded to the "fury" generated by her recent comments that "Slayer are a dreadful band."
SOURCE TEAM ROCK
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."
