The End is Coming For Slayer, Final World Tour Dates Coming Soon

by VVN Music

It looks like it is the end of the road for least their days on the Road.

One of the great metal bands, they originally formed in 1981 by Kerry King, Tom Araya, Jeff Hanneman and Dave Lombardo and, over the years, have released twelve studio albums and have received two Grammys for Best Metal Performance for "Eyes of the Insane" (2007) and "Final Six" (2008). They are part of the group of bands known as the Big Four with Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax.

Earlier today (January 22), a video was released declaring "The End of Days is Near", "To Make Their Exit With One Final World Tour" and "Slayer's Final North American Tour Dates Coming".

As far back as 2016, Araya told Loudwire "After 35 years, it's time to collect my pension. This is a career move. Where's my pension? I'm grateful that we've f---ing been around for 35 years. That's a really long time."

Joining them on the tour will be Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament.
