    Thursday evening I've been waiting for 2 hours when I see SLAYER out of their bus to enter La Laiterie Strasbourg ... A sign of Gary, smiling Tom and entered prepare ... 21:30, the background music stops ... It's gone! A fucking show with a great choice of songs!! The plublic is shaped ... And SLAYER in great shape! The show is apocalyptic! 1:45 of pure bliss and cutting up the ass!! HELLYEAH SLAYER!!
  • I would love to know how Slayer plans a "world" tour but yet isn't coming to the most important city in the world,FUCKING NYC?? Anyone?
  • I was lucky enough to get to go and see the boys play in Camden last night. The show was awesome! Typically tight sounding thrashing Slayer show. Getting to see "Old School Slayer Night" was perfect for me as 85-90 was when my musical taste was developed and I know the lyrics of every album front to back from that time period. Absolutely all my favorites! The pit was a little active throughout the show but I can tell that the Slayer audience is getting a little older as I ...
  • Just saw Slayer in Columbus for the first time, and also the first metal show I've been too. Big eye opener getting clocked in the face in the first 5 minutes, but it was rad as hell. Shit got gnarly and heavy and it was exactly how I imagined it'd be
  • Ok so I just signed up for an account n I am 25 been to plenty of metal shows, super big fan of Megadeth, I've seen them like 5 times. Any way I'm like 5"11' benching 365 n pretty much fuck up shit in the pit!!! So i haven't been to a Slayer concert yet!!! I'm going to see them this Friday in Las Vegas. I hear stories about the Slayer shows my older cousins been to back in the 90's but they don't get down in the pit like I do!! Some ppl like sky ...
  • My first Slayer shows were when they co-headlined Pantera's two final U.S. Tours. I was 15. Went to the show alone, don't remember how I got home a hour away. concerts pre-9/11 were fucking crazy! First thing I wanted to do was get high and mosh, held my own for awhile until some fat kid started skanking and punched me in the mouth. Got cheap shotted in the back by a skinhead, there were a lot of them there for Pantera obviously. I remember making it through WAR ENSEMBLE. The ...

    After being in the Army for four years and missing you guys all four years, YOU GUYS COME TO MASS!! I'll be there and can't wait to fucking mosh my way to hell!!
  • In summer 2011 Slayer was playing the Heavy festival in Toronto so I knew I'd have to make the journey to the big city. The last night's top three headliners (in order of time playing) were Slayer, Billy Talent and then Rob Zombie. Well everyone thought that Slayer was going to close out the festival but to everyone's dismay it looked as if Slayer would technically be opening for Rob Zombie... and Billy Talent. This did not sit well with the hardcore metal crowd of ...

  • I first heard Slayer in 1998. I was 11 at the time. My older brother just bought the Diabolus In Musica tape. I'll probably make a pussy out of myself but at first I was so fucking afraid of this whiteheaded motherfucker on the cover that I didn't want to get anywhere near this tape. But finally curiosity won. I've put the tape in, pressed play and I waited. It was on side A and the first track was Bitter Peace. At first it was normal. Some guitars, some drums. Just music. ...

  • I still remember this day as it was yesterday..... Heavy Sound Festival in Belgium (1985).... You guys joined us at the festival bar drinking beers, telling jokes.... This was fun ! From that day on, Slayer was in my heart.
  • i went to my first slayer concert either in 2012 or 2011 and everybody was headbanging including me and it was a fucking awesome concert
  • Me and My friend went on a bike ride the day before the mayhem fest in scranton in 2012. I got into a really bad bike crash and broke 2 ribs and brused my left hip. The next day i went and i was in so much pain but i still fucking moshed to every Anthrax song, every Slipknot song, and every fucking Slayer song. I will not let anything get in my way to see and mosh to SSSSLLLAAAAYYYYYEERRRR!!!

I'm 28 and I've been listening to metal since Kindergarten and this is my first Slayer album. I don't know how or why it took so long to get into them, but now I'm hooked. I listen to Emperor, Dimmu Borgir, Celtic Frost, Venom, Hypocrisy, Vader, At The Gates etc. for years now and I just never gave Slayer a shot. I was craving someting straight forward. Something a little more "in your face" and "pure" than the death and black metal I always listen to. I said to myself, "y'know what, it don't get much more straight forward than Slayer." I was always familiar with "Raining Blood" and "Angel of Death" so that confirmed my decision. "Let's give these guys a REAL listen." I listened to "World Painted Blood" over and over and over again. I ran out and bought "Christ Illusion" and "God Hates Us All." They're amazing. Then I bought "Diabolous In Musica", "Divine Intervention", "Seasons In The Abyss", "South of Heaven", and "Reign in Blood". THEN I bought "Hell Awaits", "Haunting the Chapel" and "Show No Mercy". This transpired over the coarse of three days. I've been on steady aural diet of Slayer since I picked up Worl Painted Blood. Having been an on again, off again Metallica fan, I can honestly say "Who the fuck needs Metallica when we still have Slayer?". I owned "Death Magnetic" for....three days. That's a coincidence (3 days again). It's lazy song structures and complete lack of inspiration and detail was nauseating. It was a snooze a thon. It's like easy listening for a hard rock audience. Slayer, on the other hand, still has the drive and desire to make a great album. I honestly don't feel that it's necisary to listen to Metallica, Megadeth, or Exodus. Slayer owns that style of metal. They do it the best. All others pail in comparison. HAIL SLAYER! I'm a new fan but they have easily become one of my top bands. NOW I know why Slayer fans are so ravenously devoted. Slayer never disapoints. Slayer does not have a bad album in their discography.

Just read the Revolver SLAYER tribute articles. Wow... alot of little tid-bit's of info that every SLAYER head needs to know.

I did not know (how would I) that Tommies sister died... my condolences man. Jeff's father passed also... and my condolences to you Jeff on his passing. Man... death really puts life into perspective when the ones we love, and care for go.

Anyway...

This was a really good look into the making of the albums, and structure that is put into the creative process of SLAYER's music. I mean, it wasn't totally chaulk full of information, and text for text of how they do make their music, but it let's one see what they are doing for each album made.

I laughed at the thought of them wearing eyeliner back in the day, but that is what they were about back then, and thankfully seen that wasn't what they were. I enjoyed the fact that they ARE regular people, with the usual problems everyone faces, and if I were as good as a drummer as Dave, or Paul... I would have auditioned for the band, but I suck compared to those two.

Until further literature is purchased about SLAYER by me... Fuckin' SLAAAAAAAYER!!!

Oh yeah... completely awesome that the spoken word at the beginning of the album (World Painted Blood) is of Native American tongue.

AWSOME WORK GUYS!
I have listened to you since 86` Rock on.

PLEASE COME TO UTAH I NEED MY SLAYER FIX FOR THE YEAR!!!!!! CHRIS SLAY

CHRIS"FELL A VICTIM"(R) Slay

ITHINK THIS ALBUM IS NECK AND NECK WITH REIGN IN BLOOD,ITS THAT GOOD!!!!!!HOPE YOUR DOING ALLRIGHT TOM. KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOCTOR TOLD YOU!!!!!!MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT. CHRIS SLAY

CHRIS"FELL A VICTIM"(R) Slay

IM CONVIENCED THAT "WORLD PAINTED BLOOD" IHATE TO SAY IT BUT I LIKE IT BETTER THAN "SOUTH OF HEAVEN"FOR SLAYER TO IN MY OPINION THERE ISNT 1 SINGLS BAD SONG ON THE ALBUM.ITS ALEADY A CLASSIC AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED!!!!!!AND IT BETTER WIN THE GRAMMY.THERE JUST SO UNDERATED, I THINK THE MUSIC WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT SLAYER ALOT BETTER.THEY SELL OUT SHOWS,WITH NO AIRPLAY,LET ME REPEAT MY SELF NO AIR PLAY,ENOUGH SAID.THANKS CHRIS SLAY

CHRIS"FELL A VICTIM"(R) Slay

its like the unholy matrimony of raining blood and diabolus in musica. AND ITS FKN INSANE!!!!!!!!!! FKN SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

World Painted Blood is just as mind blowing and powerful as Christ Illusion was. These last 2 albums are in my opinion the best studio albums Slayer have released since Seasons In the Abyss! Nothing wrong at all with God Hates Us All, Divine Intervention, Undisputed attitude or Diabolus In Musica, but these last two definately have a throw back sound to them. Classic Slayer modern day. Fuckin' A! \m/ >_< \m/

Its EPIDEMIC
