It was great to see Slayer in NZ again and in such a small venue. They opened with World Painted Blood then into War Ensemble. As usual with a Slayer show the sound was outstanding, the playing was incredibly tight and the show was conducted very professionally.
Surprises included Ghosts of War, Hell Awaits & Born of Fire. The only disappointment was the length of the show, at just over an hour long the set list was kept to the classics. However, the classics never disappoint and Mandatory Suicide, South of Heaven, Raining Blood & Angel of Death were performed brilliantly. Slayer are world class and I am glad I have seen them a few times.
Thanks for coming back. Hopefully the promoter will take a chance on Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch next time.
