Metal music lovers are in heaven right now because a tour was just announced that has sent shockwaves through the metal community. SLAYER will be on tour this year with both Lamb Of God and Behemoth. Just saying that gives me good chills. So far about six weeks of concerts have been planned out, which comes out to about 25 appearances or performances, and that includes a few metal music festivals.
Said SLAYER’s Kerry King: “As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!” (see video below) …… Added LAMB OF GOD’s Randy Blythe: “It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty SLAYER and even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in BEHEMOTH. I can’t wait! This tour is gonna be the feel-good event of the summer — the gigs are gonna be like the Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love in ’67! Ok, so that’s complete bullshit, it’s gonna be absolutely nothing like that, so don’t show up with flowers in your hair looking for free hugs or anything stupid like that. It will definitely be a good fucking time though (as long as your definition of a good time means brutal, caustic, and hideously loud music) — see ya there!”
