Chances are you might hear people randomly scream out “Slaaaaayer” today.
This is the first anniversary of Jeff Hanneman’s departure from our feeble realm.
The master guitarist died one year ago this day, and so did Slayer with him.
That’s just my opinion man.
Look, Jeff wrote all the songs I like. So did Slayer die with him? I think it did. Look at them now. Sure, they’ve just signed to Nuclear Blast (the hotsy label, as I’ve been saying since day one) and Gary Holt is in the band and will help with the new album.
But Slayer, as it stands, is as much Slayer as Guns N’ Roses is Guns N’ Roses, if that makes any sense.
Anyways, the good dudes at Loudwire are asking that people randomly screamed “Slayer!!!” today in honor of Jeff.
Watch the following video about their campaign, if you are so inclined.
