On September 24, Mumbai will play host to India’s first-ever SLAYER tribute concert. This gig is a tribute organized by Mumbai death thrash metal band DEVOID. Members of DEMONIC RESURRECTION, BHAYANAK MAUT, ZYGNEMA, ATMOSFEAR and others will also join them on stage. The event will also host a screening session of SLAYER videos prior to the gig.
Several international artists have come and gone over the years to India, but one band that Indian audiences have been yearning to watch is SLAYER. Your everyday Indian metalhead may not have even seen the band once in his/her lifetime but that does not hold back the massive following the band has in this country. For such a scene, hearing the band’s music live is the closest they can get to the SLAYER experience.
Remember that statement made in the Sam Dunn documentary “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey” — no one can ever say “There was that one summer when I was into SLAYER, but it was a phase?” That is what is all about — the scale of the epicness that is called SLAYER.
“We always loved listening to SLAYER,” said DEVOID vocalist Arun Iyer. “We always loved playing SLAYER. On this occasion we will be combining the both for one night that we guarantee will not be soon forgotten. The slayer carnage will be doubled as we will be joined by other artists from various bands for a gig that will send you screaming from the sky. This September 24th things are going to get really, really intense.”
