SLAYER SPREADS A LITTLE HATE WORLDWIDE WITH 4TH GRAMMY NOMINATION

Dancing with the Devil must appeal to the N.A.R.A.S. membership, as they've gone and done it again - nominated Slayer for a Grammy Award. And the members of Slayer are wickedly pleased.

This, Slayer's fourth Grammy nod in the Best Metal Performance category, is for the track "Hate Worldwide," off of the band's new album World Painted Blood, which offers a Slayer-ized viewpoint of our world - God's terrifying global genocide, the chaos of our broken political system, the way-too-close proximity of world horrors that technology has brought us, and a chilling hypothesis of how the rest of the world might view America. "Hate Worldwide," written by King, showcases classic Slayer hate-fueled venom spewed forth at impossible speeds - "That's why it's become my obsession/To treat God like an infection/My scars, insane/My life, profane/I deny, defy, and spread a little hate worldwide."

World Painted Blood has received raves from retail: the album debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums charts; radio: after multiple weeks at #1 on all of the major metal radio charts, the album says farewell to 2009 still firmly embedded in that #1 position; and press: according to one media outlet, World Painted Blood "recaptures the manic fury of Reign in Blood, the range of South of Heaven, and the grand scale of Seasons in the Abyss." In addition, the album was a Top Ten debut in numerous countries outside the U.S., including Germany, Australia, Japan, and Canada.

Nominated for a Grammy three previous times in the Best Metal Performance category, Slayer has taken the award home twice - in 2006 for "Eyes of the Insane," from Christ Illusion, and in 2007 for "Final Six," from the Christ Illusion Limited Edition release. The band's first Grammy nomination came in 2002 for the track "Disciple" from the album God Hates Us All.

Slayer will kick off twenty-ten co-headlining the North American American Carnage tour, marking the first time that Slayer and Megadeth have shared a U.S. stage since 1991's epic "Clash of the Titans" tour. The 26-date trek kicks off January 18 in Seattle, WA.

Personally, I can give 2 shits about this nomination. The corprate giants dont no shit about SLAYER or any other form of metal. They go by record sales and by popular demand. Look who won the 1st metal nomination ever, Jethral Tolt or what ever thier called. Not even metal. I think SLAYER is the best band out there in america for this type of music. They never changed thier ways or style to suit the corprate asses. Not to mention hardly any media help. Come to think of it, most buisness and currency powers are jews, so why would they want any thing to do with SLAYER since they wrote a song about a nazi concentration camp, Angel of Death? They recognise SLAYER now because of the record sales and popularity. Not because they kick ass and desrve this more then any other band out there right now. I gaurantee that most metal bands were and are influanced by SLAYER, so for this nomination for this album will be kewl for most of you, but for me its a slap in the face and to us hardcore fans.
