Slayer Christmas Light Show Dedicated to Late Guitarist Jeff Hanneman
This may be the most impressive metal Christmas light show we’ve ever posted. Paying tribute to late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a dedicated metalhead took the time to put together a phenomenal light show using a medley of Slayer anthems including ‘Hell Awaits,’ ‘Angel of Death,’ ‘War Ensemble,’ ‘Raining Blood’ and ‘New Faith.’
The man who created this glorious light show, who goes by ‘Slayer Bob’ on YouTube, completely decked out his house with lights for the Christmas Slayer medley. You may remember Slayer Bob for his Metallica light show in 2012 and his 2011 Machine Head show.
Let’s break this thing down: We’ve got two demonic snowmen, Santa Claus playing guitar, an elf pounding the drums, two ‘devil horn’ hand gestures, star wands and even a tree that radiates light and pictures. The tree may be the most awesome part of the show, as it lights up in the shape of a guitar, illuminates ever-changing patterns and even showcases text. At the right times, the tree will read, “Slayer,” “Bang your head,” “Hanneman” and “Merry Metal Christmas.”
Slayer Bob writes, “THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MONTHS PREPARING THIS,MY WIFE HATES ME,AND I HAVE A FEW MORE GREY HAIRS..HOPE IT WORKS.”
The Christmas light show master also adds, “I worked the entire year on Christmas displays all over the U.S. I had planned on bringing you new bands this year, but [due] to the passing of Jeff Hanneman, I had to do one last Slayer tribute. With the time that I had, I was able to create this light show. This one goes out to all the fans of Metal, and especially Jeff.”
