Slayer Adds Second Leg To Farewell Tour

Some time ago, seminal band Slayer — who along with Bathory and Hellhammer created the germinal material and style of death metal — decided to call it a day after thirty-seven years of recording, touring, and generally causing problems.

The announcement of the end of Slayer contained a retrospective of all that Slayer has done:

After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, being one of the four bands that defined an entire musical genre and being the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to…after nearly 37 years, releasing 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and two box sets, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards including five Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards, Gold records and other accolades…having its own exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end.

At DMU, we think it is only fitting that this band go out with a Viking funeral and a blaze of glory. For more information on the tour and to purchase tickets, visit the Slaytanic Wehrmacht Slayer Fanclub site.

      the damage is done. 50 more years of bad albums would tarnish their legacy no more than they already have

    Slayer is dead. I was at the grocery store the other day and lo and behold, “Angel of Death” was playing over the PA system. It wasn’t on my shopping list, but I decided to by soap anyhow. Too bad there were no lampshades to purchase.

      The holohoax is yet another Jewish myth. Talk about over exaggeration, filthy hooked nose thieves.
