Live Tonight: Week of June 6th – June 12th: Happy International Day of Slayer!

int day of slayer

June 6th every year, as everyone knows, is International Slayer Day. It’s a joyous, festive celebration of all things Slayer, including (but not limited to) blaring Slayer albums as loud as possible for 24 straight hours, carving Slayer’s logo into any surface you can find and generally just being as awesome as possible. Slayer is love, Slayer is life: Slayer would want you to go to some shows this week. Hanneman bless you.

Venom, Inc. is original Venom guitarist Mantas and original Venom drummer Abaddon alolng with Demolition Man, Venom’s bassist/vocalist from 1989 to 1992.
