By on May 16, 2018

They are the creators of one of the most brutal and aggressive music ever created. Slayer is one of four bands that has defined a whole genre – and has become a benchmark for how to make metal. After almost 37 years, the band has released 12 studio albums and won a lot of prizes (including two Grammy Awards). The records have sold gold several times and the band has even got its own show at enrich Smithsonian Institute.

It’s a band that has been on the front of hundreds of metal and rock magazines and toured the world over in front of thousands dedicated fans. There is also a band that has been in deep sorrow, with the guitarist and co-founder Jeff Hanneman’s tragic death in 2013.

Now the story of Slayer is over. And for their final goodbye they bring Lamb of God, Anthrax and Obituary. All this farewell will we in Sweden take part of on December 5th at Hovet in Stockholm!

We look forward to seeing Slayer on Swedish soil – one last time!
