DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today is the sixth edition of the SONISPHERE festival series, plug into all the info below.  The Bear is giving you a chance to go to the world's largest hard music festival this July, and another one of the massive bands that'll be on stage that weekend is one of the greatest Thrash bands ever, SLAYER!  One thing you have to love about Metal bands is that they're never afraid to say what's on their mind, and 2006's "Christ Illusion" is a perfect example of that, with it's heavy political-social commentary.  Click in the album graphic to the right for "CONSFEARACY."
