Slayer BioNo thrash metal band has earned as much respect and as large a following as Slayer. Slayer’s uncompromising metal and controversial lyrics embody everything it means to be a thrash metal band. And the band that defined the genre remains one of the most important force in metal music. Slayer’s legions of fans still rush to buy Slayer tickets and Slayer albums, and the band continues to deliver their extreme brand of loud, fast music.
The intensity of Slayer and their fans may not have changed over the course of the band’s more than thirty years together, but a lot of other things have. Slayer’s journey to metal immortality has been far from easy. Slayer rose from obscurity to dominate the metal scene, and the band has dealt with controversies, lawsuits, changes to their lineup, and even the death of a member. Through it all, Slayer has stayed true to their intense style and their artistic vision.
The story of Slayer starts in 1981, when Kerry King and Dave Lombardo first met. Both were musicians – King played guitar and Lombardo played drums – and they soon discovered that they loved the same type of music. Along with guitarist Jeff Hanneman and bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, the new friends formed a metal band. Slayer was born.
Early on, the band played covers of the groups that they respected. They’d perform songs by metal gods like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. They weren’t yet known for their own material, but the band’s style was still unmistakable: they’d perform on stages full of Satanic imagery, like inverted crosses and pentagrams.
The band’s big break came when they got a gig opening for the band Bitch in Anaheim, California. Brian Slagel, the founder of Metal Blade Records, happened to be in the audience and saw the band play. He asked them to record an original song for a compilation album, and that original song (“Aggressive Perfector”) generated a lot of buzz for the band in the metal scene. Soon, the band had signed a full recording contract with Metal Blade.
But the band’s new contract didn’t come with a budget – they were forced to finance their own debut album. The band was barely able to scrape up the necessary funds, but they were rewarded when Show Now Mercy (1983) became an underground hit. After its release, the band embarked on their first national tour, giving new fans across the country their first chance to buy Slayer tickets.
Slayer was already a metal band, but they began to explore a more thrash-oriented style in their next EP (1984’s Haunting the Chapel). Soon, the band would be the most famous thrash metal band on the planet.
The band gained further notoriety thanks to a feud with fellow metal band Megadeath. King played guitar for Megadeath for a short time before returning to Slayer, a move that would sow the seeds of a rivalry. King’s choice to leave Megadeath and his dismissive comments on the subject led to a long-running feud.
A live album (1984’s Live Undead) brought Slayer’s legendary live experience to fans who hadn’t been able to get Slayer tickets yet, and 1985’s Hell Awaits expanded on the band’s darker, thrash-oriented style. Those successful albums, along with the band’s growing popularity, earned the group a contract with Def Jam Recordings. That set the stage for the release of perhaps their most iconic album.
Reign in Blood (1986) was a critical and commercial hit. The album went gold and helped to define heavy metal at a pivotal moment in its history. Reign in Blood remains Slayer’s most influential album, and it clearly established the group as one of the most important metal bands in history.
Despite the massive success of Reign in Blood, the band refused to stand still creatively. They actively tweaked their style for the next album, deliberately slowing down tempos to give the fans something new. The result was South of Heaven (1988), the band’s most commercially successful album to that point.
Slayer tickets sold better than ever in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and the band released another strong album, Seasons in the Abyss, in 1990. But in the early 1990s, the band lost one of its founding members: Dave Lombardo left the band to spend more time with his family. He was replaced on drums by Paul Bostaph. Slayer’s drumming job was destined to change hands several more times: Bostaph was replaced by Jon Dette in 1996, but returned in 1997, only to be replaced again when Lombardo returned in 2001. Lombardo drummed with his fellow founding members until 2013, when he was replaced by Dette – who was, in turn, replaced by Bostaph again.
Throughout these changes, the band’s core mission remained the same. They continued to make strong thrash metal albums and court controversy. In the 1990s, they were sued by a parent who claimed the band had influenced the fans who had murdered her daughter; in 2006, the band’s album Christ Illusion was recalled in India because of its cover, which depicted a mutilated and dismembered Jesus Christ. These challenges brought Slayer notoriety in many circles, but in the world of metal, controversies like this only sold more Slayer tickets.
The band met a new challenge in 2011, when founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman contracted necrotizing fasciitis – a flesh-eating virus – from a spider bite. The band added guitarist Gary Holt for the remainder of their 2011 tour, but they held off on making new music, waiting for Hanneman to recover.
Hanneman recovered, but passed away just two years later of liver failure brought on by his heavy drinking. It was a dark moment for the band, but after some introspection, they decided to soldier on. They released their first new material in five years in 2014, and released a twelfth studio album, Repentless, in 2015.
Today, Slayer remains thrash metal’s most important and enduring band. Though the band has dealt with musical challenges and personal tragedies, they continue to bring intensity and passion to their brand of heavy metal music. The members of Slayer – like their fans – don’t know the meaning of “slowing down.”
