International Day of Slayer XI — June 6, 2016

Every June 6, Slayer fanatics worldwide come together to blast Slayer and be disobedient. This year, the International Day of Slayer XI falls on a Monday, which is a perfect time to call in sick to school/work and listen to Slayer instead!

The fanatics over at the International Day of Slayer have thrown a special celebration with two Slayer bootlegs to download and pictures of Slayer throughout their career. There’s also a statement about the importance of Slayer yet again.

As far as we go here at Death Metal Underground, we will be celebrating in the style that has made this holiday a metalhead favorite for ten years:

How to Celebrate

  • Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
  • Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
  • Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
  • Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.

DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren’t just about celebrating; they’re about forcing it upon non-participants.

Taking that participation to a problematic level

  • Stage a “Slay-out.” Don’t go to work. Listen to Slayer.
  • Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
  • Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
  • Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
  • Kill the neighbor’s dog and blame it on Slayer.

    Listened to the first 4 full-lenghts, Live Undead and Haunting the Chapel 3 times already today. It’s time for a fourth

    Hail Slayer!! Death to false metal!!

  3. Hræsvelgr says:

    Thanks for this reminder. It’s the National Day of Sweden today as well, so I almost forgot that it’s (Inter-) National Day of Slayer. I’m faithfully blasting South of Heaven as we speak. My moslem neighbours are probably having a blast.

      I was going to burn a mosque, but I decided against it.
      Do you know why?

      1. Ludvig B.B. (vOddy) says:

        Because unlike churches, mosques are made of stone.

        Ba dum tish!

        1. dylan roof says:

          You could do it my way, doesn’t matter what the building is made of.

          1. Ludvig B.B. (vOddy) says:

            Are you the one who told me to “use more fire”?

            I don’t think that’s going to work.

            1. LostInTheANUS says:

              Just make some fertilizer bombs.

  4. Anthony says:

    Spray-paint that logo on synagogues and churches, but not mosques, because that would be a hate crime! Oy vey goyim! What would Angela Merkel think?

  5. anal wax says:

    We have to drive Christianity from Europe and embrace our Arabic heritage!

    No pork! No alcohol! No Fun!

    1. morbideathscream says:

      And no women hahaha.

      1. Ludvig B.B. (vOddy) says:

        What are you talking about?

        Four women for every man, if he can afford them. As long as their heads are covered.

        1. morbideathscream says:

          Don’t take my reply so seriously now.

          They are as quick to kill a woman as they are an “infidel”. The so-called refugees invading Europe are almost exclusively adult males. It’s a religion of closet homos. Even though my comment wasn’t literal, there is truth behind the joke.

          1. Ludvig B.B. (vOddy) says:

            Closet homos? You’ve lost me there, mate :D

            1. morbideathscream says:

              Closet homo is a slang term used for folks who are not open about their homosexuality. For example, when Rob Halford came out and told everyone he was gay, that would be called coming out of the closet.

  6. SomberSun says:

    Too busy enjoying my birthday to celebrate Slayer Day….not.

    Just finished listening to Reign In Blood. Just moved on to South Of Heaven. Unsurprisingly, that’s also where i’ll stop.


  8. Ludvig B.B. (vOddy) says:

    In the one metal concert that I have gone to in my life, Deathcrusher 2015, people shouted “SLAYER!” multiple times.

    Slayer was not playing.


    1. OliveFox says:

      I once saw a guy get the shit kicked out of him in a circle pit during “Angel of Death.” Not a unique story, you muse? Consider that it was just being played over the PA in between bands…and it wasn’t even a metal show.


      HELL AWAITS and SEASONS…while playing Legacy of the Wizard on the NES is my poison for this blessed today.

      1. Meek Metalhead says:

        This story had me giggling like a little girl.

  9. Hillary Sanders says:

    So… wot ’bout Ungod n’ Dark Funeral my homies???

    1. David Parland is dead. Are you an illegal immigrant? Why are you harassing us?

      1. Hillary Sanders says:

        > Why are you harassing us?

        Simple. Cuz your ass seems tasty enough and I´m gunna have it.

        Why do you ask?

    2. Johan P says:

      *throws dices* …..

      Dark Funeral: 1/6

      Ungod: 3/6


    3. Kermit the Fucking Fuckface Frog says:

      Yeah you’re pretty gay

  10. Billy Foss says:

    Is anyone aware of this?

    I remember being pretty disappointed when I first found out. Obviously, it doesn’t detract from the music, but it’s still unfortunate nonetheless. I guess not many Moebius fans listen to Slayer which is equally unfortunate. And yet the plagiarized image is still in use. Does anyone know if Metal Blade paid for use of the image?

  11. Rainer Weikusat says:

    As I’ve just finished reading the complete tail section of the FAQ (philosophy & context), everything’s doom-and-gloom and at least in Europe, Slayer is as mainstream as it can get (try googling for slayer rock am ring, the latter being ‘the’ German panem et circenses rock music festival), can we have some tea with that: (fairly new band from NY with a female vocalist).

  12. morbideathscream says:

    Any pre-divine intervention Slayer is nothing short of legendary and a mandatory purchase for anyone who claims to be a metalhead.
