    The Great Holy Wars Ho-Down

    I've said it many times, Holy Wars is the best thrash song ever. I also threw it out there once in a poll, titled Do you know how to play Holy Wars?

    At the time of this posting, that poll reads 29 Yes, 17 No and 19 Noodles. Now it's time to step up, gents.

    One camera angle, one take, clams and all, no bullshit edits or fancy nonsense. Make a video and rip through this most sacred of thrash metal anthems. No need to be exact, just make your best one-shot pass at it and toss it on the 'Tube.

    The most awesome (not necessarily the most accurate, or even the cleanest) rendition of the Mustaine Masterpiece will get an MG T-Shirt, and a cool badge under their username as long as we get at least half a dozen people manning up and rising to the challenge.

    This is not a video creation contest! It doesn't matter how good your video is. Use your phone, a shitty camera, your laptop webcam, whatever. Play it on drums. Or bass. Or freakin' kazoo if you have to. Nobody here cares about fancy camera angles, video edits and perfect lighting. Just light it up with some thrash!

    I'll update this post with new videos as they come up!

    (I removed the embeds in this post so the page is less obnoxious to load.)

    I'll go first.

    I'm not sure if Youtube will break this, and I guess I'll kind of be flattered if they do. One track from the Axe-Fx, over a super brickwalled export from iTunes. It's in HD. The first 10 seconds are a lot quieter than the rest (camcorder audio), so uh, turn your volume down.
