That indeed is one helluva piece of music.

I'm not positive but I think Jose Mesa uses

I believe Chacon used the theme from Looney Tunes....

At least that is what it should have been.

The first 2+ minutes (up until the first vocals) of Slayer's Raining Blood is by far the most intimidating sequence I have ever heard and should be mandatory for all non-hispanic closers (they all like peppy music for some reason). It's also the perfect length for someone walking in from an outfield pen. I suggest everyone have a listen who has not heard the song.
