Last Friday (May 2), the metal world has marked the first year since the passing of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.
Many prominent metal figures have stepped up to pay their respect, celebrating the man who brought us "Angel of Death," "Raining Blood," "Seasons in the Abyss," "War Ensemble" and so many other Slayer classics.
Jeff died of liver failure in Southern California hospital near his home. It might seem fast and strange, but it has happened over a year now. Check out some of the tributes below.
