SLAYER Reunites For Two Festival Dates

After a five year long break, one of the greatest metal bands in history returns for two festival dates later this year. SLAYER announced on their social medias with a video where Tom Araya comments “Cause, It gets you when you least expect it. Know what I mean? That’s the best time”, followed with dates for Riot Fest (22 September) and Louder Than Life (27 September).

Tom Araya comments on the return:
“Nothing compares to the 90 minutes when we’re on stage playing live, sharing that intense energy with our fans, and to be honest, we have missed that.”

Kerry King, who recently announced his new band under his own name, also says:
“Have I missed playing live? Absolutely. Slayer means a lot to our fans; they mean a lot to us. It will be five years since we have seen them.”

Is this the first announcement of more concerts to follow? We can always hope, SLAYER is back.

I have been a Metalhead ever since I was old enough to comprehend what music was. Something really called to me when I for the first time heard my fathers IRON MAIDEN albums being played, that gave me such goosebumps which only made me want more! Ever since then, I’ve been listening into multiple genres with the hunger of exploring new metal music and keeping track of upcoming bands. My favorite genres today is Black Metal and Blackgaze which includes most of my favorite bands, but my biggest favorite of them all is called HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY. I’m really passionate about the metal community and frequently goes to concerts to try to support as many band as possible by buying merch and promoting them by doing reviews. The metal community has shaped me into who I am today and is something that I will always give back to!
