The bass lines where now Tom just yells KILL when they play At Dawn They Sleep live is how much Rubin has been an awesome influence on the band but also not that great either. Those bass lines fit with what the 2 guitars were doing melody wise one after the other and then the bass came in and the, silence, and then massive speed comes in..... Tom played Reign in Blood with his fingers, but afterwards he played with a pick so he didn't really play the fast first riff of War Ensemble, he just goes 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0 under the riffs, he didn't do that here, or in Reign, but in Reign the bass already has been Rubenized...
