Nightwish singer Floor Jansen has responded to the backlash she faced after recently┬ásharing her personal opinion on Slayer‘s music. You may recall she was in part recently quoted as saying about the band:

“…I think they’re a dreadful band. Unbelievably boring. Terrible. Apparently it’s not metal to say that, but it’s a personal opinion.”

In a new post shared via her Instagram, she offered:

“Apparently I unleashed the fury upon metal earth when I was asked a question about the most metal album I own. Thinking Slayers music is not my thing doesn’t mean I don’t respect the band for what they are and what they’ve done. I just won’t play it. As I can imagine they won’t listen to mine either for that matter ;-)

The reactions this triggered online saddens me. We are all entitled to our own opinion. But this sentence about my metal albums was put out of context, blown up and used for pathetic ‘shock purposes’. Does that mean I need to keep my mouth shut next time, no. Does it mean I need to be offended by so many whom I didn’t offend? No… I don’t like Slayer. Shall we get over that now? 😜”
