Titans of thrash metal
Slayer is praised for defining the American thrash/metal genre, along with the other Big Four bands. They became popular because of their unique and aggressive music style; their graphic songs were based on topics like horrors of hell, hate crimes, Satanism, human experimentation, genocide and murder. The band was formed by Dave Lombardo, Jeff Haennenman, Kerry King and Tom Araya in California in 1981.
The Early Years
Slayer used to play covers of songs by bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden at clubs and parties. They were invited to perform as the opening act for the band ‘Bitch’ in 1983 in California. A former music journalist and founder of ‘Metal Blade Records,’ Brian Slager, saw them perform live and was impressed by their music. He had a meeting with the band and asked them to record a track. Slayer agreed to record an original song titled ‘Aggressive Perfector’ which was released in 1983, and became an instant hit. The success of the song helped them land a contract with Metal Blade Records.
Slayer find success
Slayer has been performing and recording songs since three decades. They have released a cover album, two extended plays, six music videos, a box set, two live albums and twelve studio albums. Four of their albums have been gold certified in the US. They have also won two Grammy Awards; they won the first Grammy for ‘Eyes of the Insane’ in 2007 and another one for the track ‘Final Six’ in 2008.
Having sold more than 5 million albums in the US between 1991 and 2013, Slayer remain one of the most revered bands in the thrash metal industry. If you want to watch them perform live, grab your Slayer Spokane WA tickets at the earliest.
