Slayer was formed in Southern California when Kerry King and Dave
Lombardo first met and immediately bonded over their shared love for heavy metal and rock. After deciding to form a band together,
Lombardo and King recruited a couple other members to augment the band, including Jeff Hanneman and Tom Araya. The band initially
practiced and performed cover versions of songs by Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, and hints of Satanism were reflected in their
style early on in their career. Slayer became known for their controversial image: heavy makeup, spiked jewelry and inverted
crosses, and other Satanic symbols like pentagrams. Fittingly, Slayer's first live gig was on Halloween night in South Gate,
California. After heavy gigging throughout Southern California, Slayer caught their big break when music journalist Brian
Slagel heard them perform, and subsequently scored them a recording contract with Metal Blade.
Once they had a record
deal, it wasn't long before Slayer became a huge sensation. They released their debut album, Show No Mercy, in 1983, and record
sales immediately started soaring. In order to promote the album, Slayer went on a massive national tour, and quickly earned
