Non è così per tutti, ci mancherebbe, ma sicuramente chi apprezza il metal, probabilmente, come punto di partenza potrebbe aver avuto i classici ‘Big 4’, ovvero Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax e Slayer. Mentre i primi tre continuano la loro attività , gli ultimi del lotto sono arrivati alla fine della corsa. Il video qui sotto parla del tour finale di una carriera, il comunicato di Instagram sancisce la definitiva fine.

Gli Slayer, guidati dal carisma di Tom Araya si sono formati nel 1981, dando alle stampe album memorabili come “Show No Mercy” o “Reign In Blood”.

Il loro ultimo album, “Repentless”, risale al 2015. Controversi e al centro di varie accuse per i loro testi, gli Slayer hanno dovuto anche affrontare, nel 2013, il lutto della morte dello storico chitarrista Jeff Hanneman.

After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, being one of the four bands that defined an entire musical genre and being the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to”…after nearly 37 years, releasing 12 studio albums, multiple live recordings, compilations, live video and two box sets, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards including five Grammy nominations and two Grammy awards, Gold records and other accolades”…having its own exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end. Slayer will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank their fans for all the support over the years. N. American tickets public on sale Friday, Jan. 26 at 10AM local.
