In the late eighties this band's album contained stickers which proudly boasted "featuring brothers of Slayer's Tom Araya and Jeff Hanneman". In reality this was only half true -- yes, bassist Johnny Araya is Tom's brother, but the other guy (Joey "Hanneman") in fact was no relation to Jeff, as his real name was Joey Fuchs, and presumably went with the Hanneman name just as a gimmick. In any case, the album in question, Death By A Clothes Hanger, did bear a vague resemblance to early Slayer -- thrash, yes, but this was more of a messy, punky brand of thrash, verging on crossover. They broke up some time after that album, but some twenty-five years later three of the five members reunited (though neither of the two aforementioned guys are involved), still sporting a punk/thrash sound.
