More than 30 years into its career, Slayer remains the preeminent punk-thrash band that helped establish the genre and that up-and-coming metal heads continue to revere and emulate. Slayer is a five-time nominated, two-time Grammy Award-winning metal juggernaut that writes songs which mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society. Repentless, the band’s first new album in six years and 11th studio album, continues the Slaytanic offensive with a 12-song, blood-shaking sonic attack. Repentless is dark, fast, aggressive and without mercy. Repentless is crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.
It was also the most challenging record Slayer has ever had to make.
In 2013 the world mourned the loss of guitarist Jeff Hanneman who died from complications following a two-year illness. A co-founder of Slayer, losing Jeff was very difficult for the band. During Jeff’s illness, friend of the band, guitarist Holt stepped in to help out on tour with Jeff’s blessing and stayed on. Around that time, drummer Dave Lombardo exited the band for the third time and Paul Bostaph, (who played with the band from 1992 – 2001), returned to take over the throne. Slayer never skipped a beat and since Holt and Bostaph both played in Exodus, it was all-in-the-thrash-family.
Slayer’s place in music history is secure as one of The Big Four (alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax): they helped define the thrash-metal genre. With Repentless Kerry, Tom, Paul and Gary affirm that Slayer is unstoppable. Slayer continues fearlessly, aggressively and without contrition; and most importantly, Slayer still rules!
Testament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980’s. Originally formed as ‘Legacy’ in 1983 ,the band became known as ‘Testament’ 3 years later, while recording their debut album in Ithaca, New York.
The Legacy was a brutal intro in 1987, putting Testament at the forefront of the flourishing thrash metal scene. Following “Live At Eindhoven”, an EP recorded at Holland’s Dynamo Festival, The New Order in 1988 was well received producing one of the band’s most memorable classics “Disciples Of The Watch”. Next came the highly successful Practice What You Preach in 1989, then the release of “Souls Of Black” in 1990, coinciding with the European ‘Clash Of The Titans’ tour with Slayer, Megadeth and Suicidal Tendencies.
Carcass hails from Liverpool, England and is largely considered pioneers of the ‘grindcore metal’ and melodic death metal sound.
