It’s the moment we hoped would never arrive because we simply can’t accept that we’ll never get to see SLAYER again…
The legendary metallers have announced their final-ever UK and European tour, kicking off on November 1 and running through until December 8.
Iconic metal band SLAYER says farewell after almost 40 years as a thrash metal giants. They are the creators of one of the most brutal and aggressive music ever created. SLAYER is one of four bands that has defined a whole genre - and has become a benchmark for how to make metal.
After almost 37 years, the band has released 12 studio albums and won a lot of prizes (including two Grammy Awards). The records have sold gold several times and the band has even got its own show at the rich Smithsonian Institute. It's a band that has been on the front of hundreds of metal and rock magazines and toured the world over thousands of dedicated fans. There is also a band that has been in deep sorrow, with the guitarist and co-founder Jeff Hanneman's tragic death in 2013.
Now the story of SLAYER is over. And for their final goodbye they bring LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX and OBITUARY. All this farewell, we in Sweden says goodby and thank you for all this year this evening, December 5th at Hovet in Stockholm, see all the dates below.
Today's tune is a real classic, enjoy the "War Ensemble". The tune is taken from the fifth studio album "Seasons in the Abyss" by the American thrash metal band SLAYER, released on October 9, 1990. The tune is written by Jeff Hanneman.
