As the year winds down and fewer new songs hit the airwaves, we're forgoing our traditional Cage Match in favor of the Classic Cage Match!

Slayer returned to New York's Theater at Madison Square Garden for the first time in 25 years on Thanksgiving Eve, and metal fans certainly had a lot to be grateful for after witnessing the legendary band deliver a set of 'old-school' classics.
Metal fans rejoiced back in 2010 and 2011 when the Big 4 of thrash (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax) joined forces for a handful of shows around the world, including the most recent one at New York's Yankee Stadium in September 2011. Fans still holding out hope that these four metal powerhouses might join forces again on the same stage in the future may not get their way.
Just in time for the holidays, Slayer are reissuing 10 of their seminal albums on vinyl and Loudwire and Noisecreep have teamed up with the band to give away a full set of all 10 discs that are being released by American Recordings.
