SLAYER FAN THROWS A HAIL MARY… AND SLAYER RESPONDS

It appears an old life maxim has just been re-written.  Good things come to those who spill their creative guts, not those who wait.

Example: Los Angeles-based SLAYER fan Jake. In a truly ingenious effort to raise money for SLAYER tickets by offering to sell his 1997 Ford Escort LX, Jake and his friends filmed a spoof of Lincoln’s recent Matthew McConaughey commercial and released it on YouTube on Monday.

Today, three days and over 61,000 views later, SLAYER’s Tom Araya took time off from his studio sessions to respond toJake’s Hail Mary throw.

Watch Tom’s video response on SLAYER’s official YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=T94uaZfyxG0&feature=youtu.be.

SLAYER HAS COPIED W.A.S.P. FOR THEIR ENTIRE CAREER

July 25th, 2014

SLAYER HAS COPIED W.A.S.P. FOR THEIR ENTIRE CAREER.  

THE TOP TEN.

Over the years I have spent (wasted?) lots of time looking at album covers and comparing bands that I enjoy.   I noticed a distinct pattern of W.A.S.P doing something and then later Slayer doing something extremely similar. Coincidence or rip-off? Let’s examine the evidence. Enjoy this feature.  PS. Please read my disclaimer below…

SONISPHERE 2014 – Hietaniemi beach, Helsinki

SONISPHERE

28.05 2014

Hietaniemi beach, Helsinki

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

The Sonisphere Festival is an annual touring metal/rock festival which takes place across Europe between June and August. In Finland, the tour was seen for the sixth time and this time it was organized in Hietaniemi beach in Helsinki. Headlining was, as usual, Metallica. The show is part of “Metallica by Request” tour, where fans can vote for this concert set list. Other performers included: Slayer, Danzig Mastodon, Gojira and Ghost. For practical reasons I didn’t get into area until 06:00, just in time to see Danzig show to begin, so I missed the first three bands this time. But let’s start from there then !!

Fun Fun Fun Fest – November 8-10, 2013

Reviewed by Robert Williams

The eighth installment of Transmission Entertainment’s Fun Fun Fun Fest featured a diverse and eclectic roster of performing artists including Snoop Lion, Jurassic 5 and Daniel Johnston but for those who chose to bang their heads to the beat of a different drum, there was also some exciting performances from thrash metal titans Slayer, the reformed Body Count, the power metal precision and virtuosity of Austin’s own Immortal Guardian, and hardcore punk legends like Subhumans, Cro-Mags and Flag (basically everyone from Black Flag except the main songwriter and figurehead, guitarist Greg Ginn). Canvassing the entirety of the outdoor Auditorium Shores venue, there was also extreme sports skateboarding and bicycling demonstrations, Anarchy Championship Wrestling and a taco cannon that fired rounds of edible ammunition into the audience.

The concrete confines of the Big Four building in Calgary Alta., are not the ideal choice for a concert venue – especially for legends like Slayer, a band you would want to hear no matter where you are standing in a venue. However, on November 3, 2013 over 2,500 fans came out to see Slayer deliver an old school set on their first North American tour since the passing of Jeff Hanneman in May this year. French heavy hitters Gojira and Australia’s 4Arm were support for the tour.

Slayer’s Tom Araya: “We need to sit down and figure out what we want to do and how to move forward.”

November 11th, 2013
Tom

Tom Araya, live in South America, 2013

In recent month’s most of the talk about Slayer has been about what the future, after their current tour, may hold. We still don’t know exactly what that will be as the two remaining original band members (bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King) both need to sit and talk about the future. In a new interview with Houston Press, Tom Araya said “I have my feelings and my thoughts, and I need to share them with Kerry. That’s what’s going to happen on this trip. We need to sit down and figure out what we want to do and how to move forward.

He further elaborated on the future with: “I don’t think Slayer will ever end because our music is going to live forever. Our music will always be accessible to anybody that wants to hear it. When you talk about it like that, I think we’ll be around for a really long time.”

SLAYER WILL PERFORM “OLD SCHOOL SLAYER NIGHT” SET ON ALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES

October 29th, 2013

“We’re having such a great time rehearsing this ‘Old School’ set, we’ve decided to play it on every one of our upcoming tour dates,” announced Slayer’s Kerry King.

Holed up in Las Vegas rehearsing for their five-week North American tour that kicks off at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tomorrow, Slayer – vocalist/bassist Araya, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and Gary Holt, still filling in for fallen founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman – have been rehearsing many of the band’s most classic and fan-favorite songs, all of which were originally written and released between the band’s inception and the 1990 Gold disc Seasons In The Abyss.

Slayer’s “Old School Slayer Night” set will include tracks from 1983’s Show No Mercy, 1985’s Hell Awaits, the genre-defining and Gold-certified Reign In Blood (1986), 1988’s South of Heaven, also certified Gold, and Seasons.

“The final set list is still coming together,” added Araya, “but we’re going to give the fans what amounts to ‘decades of aggression.’  It’s going to be a great night of music and moshing for everyone.”
