.Slayer Bid Farewell at SAP Center

The Angels of Death are bidding fans goodbye after 37 years of brutality. For some purists the thrash giants haven’t been the same since co-founder Jeff Hanneman’s untimely death, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a substitute with more shred cred than Gary Holt of Bay Area legend Exodus, who appears on the band’s latest release, Repentless, and who has amazing synergy with co-guitarist Kerry King when the two swap blistering leads. That album and its predecessor, World Painted Blood, capture Slayer’s punk-inspired mid-1980s rawness more than the overly ProTool’d mid-period stuff. Let’s hope all this “final tour” talk is a bluff because metal needs Slayer more than ever.
