Slayer Put On 'The War Face'
It's been an intense year or so for metal titans, Slayer. The Huntington Park, California band have hit audiences far beyond their previous reach on the wildly successful Big Four tour, alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. On the flip side, the group have suffered through back surgery, vertigo and flesh-eating spider bites, as well. Still, frontman Kerry King is grateful for the position the group finds itself in. We are making relevant, good music, he told MyDesert.com. We're still putting on good shows and having fun. That's what it's all about. With spider-bitten co-guitarist Jeff Hanneman reportedly on the mend (He seems to be getting better from what I hear, he said), King set his sites on this past weekend's Big Four gig at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, near the group's hometown. The tornado is coming, he said ominously. I've always lived in California, so that show is definitely important to me. The war face will be on. I don't want to suck in front of my friends. Early reports from Indio are that the metal legends most certainly did not. Thanks for the story to Gibson.com.
