SLAYER: Performance Footage From Switzerland’s SONISPHERE Festival

Fan-filmed video footage of SLAYER performing the song “Angel Of Death” on May 30 at the Swiss edition of the Sonisphere festival at Rives du Lac in Yverdon-les-Bains can be seen below.

SLAYER performed its classic 1986 album “Reign In Blood” in its entirety at All Tomorrow’s Parties‘ second U.K. “I’ll Be Your Mirror” event, which took place on May 25-27 at Alexandra Palace, London, England.

SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman has been forced to sit out the band’s current tour dates due to complications from a spider bite.

Hanneman contracted necrotising fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease, from a spider bite over a year ago.

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt is filling in for Hanneman on SLAYER‘s summer tour, which began at All Tomorrow’s Parties.

SLAYER‘s latest album, “World Painted Blood”, sold 41,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart.
