Celebrate The International Day of Slayer Today!

June 6th shall always be known as the International Day of Slayer, going back to 06/06/06 for the jackpot of all cosmic calendar dates aligning. Thanks for that, Satan, and oddly, Christians too! As we move into year three without one of the best Metal bands ever, let’s take a second to praise the dark forces for giving us this band. Not only is the 6th Day of the 6th month Slayer Day, but examine some of the facts that make today even more perfect: two members of Slayer were born in June – in Kerry King and Tom Araya (Happy Birthday today, Tom, born on Slayer Day), the band has two great releases in June – the Haunting The Chapel EP and Diabolus in Musica, and the band kicked off their farewell tour in June as well. So the month is meaningful to the band for a variety of reasons. We had covered the band dozens of times, documented their final moments as a band, and our Chief Editor Keefy personally saw Slayer 32 times! We wrote not one, but two retrospective pieces about the band calling it quits which you can read here and here. Things have been quiet on the band news front, other than some merch collabs, tribute albums, and Kerry King musing on the end of the band on the one-year anniversary of its ending. So turn this mother up to 11, and throw the horns for Slayer today! Continue reading

Slayer to Release The “Repentless Killogy” for On-Demand Tomorrow for International Slayer Day

June 6th (6/6) will forever be known as the “International Day of Slayer,” the annual heavy metal holiday that commemorates the uncompromising, loud and defiant music of the iconic band Slayer. At midnight tomorrow, Saturday, June 6, for the first time since its theatrical and DVD/Blu-ray release last November, the motion picture Slayer: The Repentless Killogy will make its VIDEO ON DEMAND debut. The release is in celebration of tomorrow’s “International Day of Slayer,” the annual heavy metal holiday that commemorates the uncompromising, loud and defiant music of the iconic thrash/punk/metal band Slayer. Since the holiday’s inception 18 years ago, every June 6, Slayer fans have staged a “Slay-out,” skipping work or school in favor of spending the day listening to Slayer at nuclear blast level, in their car, at home, or the public place of their choice. However, this year, to make sure every Slayer acolyte stays lean and mean, the “International Day of Slayer” can be saluted in the privacy and comfort of your own home – a “Slay-In.” As part of the celebration, the feature film will premiere at the special rate of $6.66 USD for one week, with 50% of the proceeds, donated on behalf of Slayer, Nuclear Blast and Global Merchandising Services, earmarked for Live Nation’s Crew Nation charity to help support live music road crew members who have been directly impacted as a result of COVID-19. Check out the trailer for the film here; pre-order “Slayer: The Repentless Killogy” ON DEMAND VIDEO below. Watch the trailer now!Continue reading
