Last week the internet was flooded with rumors that a huge metal tour was going to happen this summer putting Slayer, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament together as one mega line up. Well today that rumor became truth but with a catch…it’s Slayer‘s FINAL tour. Here’s the official video:
“After 35 years, it’s time to like, collect my pension,” frontman Tom Araya said in an interview with Loudwire from 2016. He spoke about his priorities shifting since he became a family man, although playing live still gave him incredible energy. “I like singing and just spitting that shit out and convincing everybody that this guy is a fucking maniac. It’s like acting. You feel the lyrics and you show them with your facial expressions, your body expressions, your intensity — I love that shit.”
No dates have been announced yet but get your hard earned money ready to buy your tickets to this mega tour and toss up your horns for Slayer one FINAL time.
