Post Slayer Farewell Tour...
Taken off Blabbermouth:

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/slayer ... t-presale/

The North American leg of the tour gets Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament.

I bet the UK leg gets a shit Nu-Metal band that no-one has heard of and Gama Bomb...

Depressingly, I reckon that's not going to be too far off.

Anyone who's seen Tom's interviews since the release of Repentless would have guessed this was coming tbf.
He's been wanting out for ages, but Kerry clearly wasn't going to let that happen.

It's been visible in his performances as well. King's probably had a gun to his head. I'm surprised King hasn't formed "Kerry King's Slayer"........yet.

Yeah Tom looked weary as hell during the whole Repentless release-tour cycle, which I can't believe started almost 2.5 years ago. There was definitely a sense that this could likely be the final Slayer album.

I've heard people claim it doesn't matter that they are splitting up because they haven't been great since the early or mid 90's, but to me that misses the point and quite frankly seems a bit childish. It's some pop cultural what-have-you-done-for-me-lately style bullshit. Their departure has great symbolic significance for the genre. There is a bigger picture that needs to be acknowledged.

I must admit that my 'hard on' for Slayer began to soften in 1998 with DIM, but I was glad that they were still around, even if their albums became increasingly interchangeable after GHUA.

Repentless was quite good though, better than most people said it was, and I think there was a tendency to take them for granted too.

It probably really should have happened after Hanneman's passing. Holt definitely has the cred, but Hanneman was such an instrumental part of Slayer. At this point, was a record like 'Repentless' really needed other than kicking off another tour cycle? (Granted Araya has looked, for the most part, disinterested). I imagine it's quite tough on groups like this. It's your career and your paycheck, so I can't really blame them for going on.

Regardless, I will definitely be going to see them one last time (assuming they announce Aussie dates). For me they were the greatest band ever when in their prime & few bands have left as bigger impression on me.

I'm glad I got to first see Slayer before the decline in 95 when they were just out of their prime but remained a phenomenal live act.

Easily one of the best live bands I've seen.

Yeah it's a shame that we didn't get Slayer in Australia a little earlier than 1995 really. I'd been waiting to see them for a good seven years by that stage so my expectations were enormous.

Slayer didn't tour Aus before 95? Are you sure? Not even for Seasons?

I don't believe so. Unless they didn't play any underage shows.. I turned 18 in 1993 so it's possible but I don't recall it happening.

First time I saw Slayer was Clash of the Titans in 1990. They'd been doing a whole revolving headliner thing with Megadave, but they headlined every show in the UK.
Megadeth were great, but were blown the fuck away by Slayer. Even Testament with a half hour slot gave Deth a run for their money. No way should it have been a revolving headline anywhere.

My first gig was slayer in 88, saw them again at clash in brum and on the seasons tour with mindfunk, best I've seen them was In Budapest in 2004 or so, perfect outdoor venue and perfect set list, red hot, 40p a pint, glorious.

Yeah, my first Slayer gig was the Seasons in the Abyss tour, with Mindfunk, at the Hammy O. Can you believe it was an all seat gig? :shock:

Still enjoyed it, though. I also remember queuing around the block to see them with Sepultura at the Astoria. Good times.

Funny, I've never even been slightly tempted to go see Slayer, as much as I like them (well, up to DI anyway). Same with Motorhead, Judas Priest, AC/DC, lots of the big names.

The south of heaven and season shows I saw were all seater as well, Newcastle city hall, everyone played there, Metallica, anthrax, Motörhead, priest, megadeth. All seated.

Dunno. With Priest, Motorhead and AC/DC I've just never cared enough about them to be bothered enough to go to the effort/expense of seeing them - to the extent that I turned down free AC/DC tickets a couple of years ago. I like plenty of their material (though AC/DC are ridiculously overrated and the definition of a 'greatest hits' band) but won't miss any of them when they're all gone.

Slayer I was a big fan of (up to and including Divine...) but seeing them live just never appealed to me. Anthrax are another one, though that's as much to do with Ian being a money-hungry prick as anything else. I've seen Metallica a couple of times and Megadeth once, so it's selective, not sure why.
