Hell Awaits

Slayer:
  • Slayer was direct support for Pantera on this your in the very early 2000's. It's an arena and my seats are decent but not great. While changeover is happening for the Slayer set, I started talking with some dudes named Mike and Pete seated next to me. Our discussion turned to the the insanity of Slayer pits and one of my new friends suggested we rush the pit when the lights go black right before Slayer starts. Playing devils advocate, I point to several police officers ...

    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 ...

  • 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.

fkn awesome album, crypts of eternity is a fkn masterpiece. FKN SLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!

i have seen the darkened depths of hell sorcery beyond the witches spell rob the crypts of death, eternity, yea man fucking awsome track as well as praise of death,Running and hunting and slashing
and crushing and searching
and seeing and stabbing and shooting
and thrashing and smashing and
burning destroying and killing
and bleeding and pleading then Death

THE best follow up album of all time. Alot of bands have breakthrough debut albums, and then release shit as their second album. Not so here.....

this is a reaaaaaalllllllllyyyyyyyy good album i dont know the best song on it though too hard to pick

From it's opening and title track. HELL AWAITS rips into o barrage of brutality in song after song with that unmistakeable two giutar onslaught of Hanneman and King.As I look back on this awesome album...I recall thinking that in many ways, HELL AWAITS was the inspiration for the first early death metal bands. Songs like AT DAWN THEY SLEEP and the chilling NECROPHELIAC, stand proof of this.

What can one say, in looking back on albums like ''Hell Awaits'' other than to mention again that, in my opinion, these were Slayer's true days of metal glory! One of the best! --Whitewizard.
