Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes To Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine: “You’re The King Of The Assholes”

Last night Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine publicly took issue with Metal Blade Records founder Brian Slagel over his version of how he unsuccessfully tried to sign Megadeth in the 1980s in his new book “For The Sake Of Heaviness: The History Of Metal Blade Records”. While Mustaine and Slagel appear to have since buried the hatchet, the manner in which Dave Mustaine called out Brian Slagel drew a fiery response from Six Feet Under’s vocalist Chris Barnes. Six Feet Under is signed to Metal Blade Records.

Barnes tweeted the following:

You sir are a FUCKING ASSHOLE.
