Slayer's Ugly Xmas Jumper
Slayer are getting into the Christmas spirit after unveiling an unashamedly sh-t knitted jumper on their merch store. After writings songs like "Reign In Blood" and "God Hates Us All", you wouldn't expect something so woollen and soft from Slayer, but it's real and has already sold out from their official merch store. It's not cheap though - on the UK store it's £50 ($80). Slayer are selling other holiday-themed items including baubles for your Christmas tree. Perfect for your own black Christmas. Slayer are no strangers to original merchandise. In April the band launched their own brand of Californian wine, which is said to have a "tough and uncompromising taste." A bit like Slayer, then. Meanwhile, the band are still working on their new album which has been held up by guitarist Jeff Hanneman's illness. He contracted a flesh-eating disease from a spider bite, and his recovery has been slow. "We've recorded very little," Kerry King said in August. "We got a little bit done. We had a 12-day window where we hijacked [producer] Greg Fidelma from Metallica and worked with him a little bit." See the unusual Slayer Christmas merchandise here:
