About Slayer

Founded in 1981 by guitarists Kerry King andJeff Hanneman,and drummer Dave Lombardo, Slayer got their start by playing shows in various clubs and parties across Southern California. Bassist and vocalist Tom Araya joined them, and early shows typically consisted of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest covers. After opening for the band Bitch at the Woodstock Club in Anaheim, California, their rendition of Iron Maiden's "Phantom of the Opera" caught the attention of Brian Slagel from Metal Blade Records. After their performance, Slagel asked them to record a track for his upcoming Metal compilation, Metal Massacre III. The successful track "Aggressive Perfector" was well received in the underground metal scene, and Slayer was offered a contract with Metal Blade Records.

In 1983, Slayer released their self-financed debut album Show No Mercy, which generated more buzz within their niche and gave them the opportunity to begin their no-frills national tour, with Tom Araya's car towing a U-Haul trailer serving as their "tour bus."With the release of their 1984 EP Haunting The Chapel, Slayer had started to carve out their signature sound. The album's opening track, "Chemical Warfare," quickly became the quintessential Slayer song and continues to be played at nearly every live performance since the 80s.

By 1985, Slayer had released their second studio album, Hell Awaits, which was a hit with fans. The album garnered enough popularity to attract the interest of Def Jam Records, which primarily worked with hip-hop artists. Slayer went on to accept a recording contract with Def Jam Records, with a clean-up of their songs, in favor of streamlined, stripped-down productions. The resulting album was Reign In Blood, which came to later represent the emerging thrash metal scene in the 80s. Due to the graphic nature of some of the tracks and cover art, Slayer had a hard time getting their record distributed. Def Jam's own distributor Columbia Records refused to release the album, and even when Geffen Records agreed to release it, they didn't include it on their release schedule. Despite these difficulties, the album broke the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA.

After the success of Reign In Blood and a tour that followed, Slayer set to work on their fourth studio album South of Heaven, which was met with mixed reviews after its release in 1988. Despite its lukewarm reception, the slower-paced album was Slayer's most successful, deputing at number 57 on the Billboard 200 and receiving a gold certification.

After South of Heaven, Slayer returned to the studio for their fifth album, Seasons in the Abyss, which was released in 1990. This album debuted at number 44 on the Billboard 200, and was also certified gold. It was also at this time when Slayer debuted their first ever music video on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, for their track "War Ensemble." Later that year, Slayer returned to the stage as co-headliners for the Clash of the Titans tour with Megadeth and Suicidal Tendencies. The extraordinary popularity for thrash metal at this time caused the tour to be extended until the following year, and Slayer subsequently released a live album Decade of Aggression. This ten-year celebratory compilation record debuted at number 55 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The following year, drummer Dave Lombardo quit, due to conflicts within the band and the birth of his child. Drummer Paul Bostaph later filled his place.

Spanning several decades, Slayer's prolific career has included ten studio albums, five Grammy nominations, two Grammy wins, and four gold certified records, all of which continue to inspire other acts within the metal scene.


Slayer's Breakthrough Album

Slayer's Reign In Blood was the breakthrough album that helped launch them to the mainstream audience. This album is known among fans as having helped to define the emerging thrash metal scene in the 1980s, and is perceived as a classic within the genre. Described as one of Slayer's heaviest albums, its controversial artwork and themes caused it to initially face difficulties, but it went on to perform well in the charts and was eventually certified gold in the US.
