A lot has changed since 1988 when Slayer last laid waste at the historic Hollywood Palladium, playing with Danzig (on a night when a riot broke out, resulting in a ban from playing from the venue). Musical trends have shifted dozens of times since then but Slayer have never veered off course, continuing to plow a path of metal that's as pure, dark and compelling as any other band in the genre.
A few days ago, Slayer announced that they would be performing a singular "Old School Slayer Night" performance at the Hollywood Palladium. However, after initial rehearsals, Slayer have decided to bring the old-school set to every concert on their current North American tour!
We were recently fortunate enough to speak with legendary Slayer frontman Tom Araya.

Father to son bonds are always viewed as one of the most endearing relationships two people can have. Often times, a son will idolize his father and become a fan of the same sports teams and share similar hobbies. Here, we see a father and his 3-year-old son sharing musical tastes during a rendition of ... wait for it ... Slayer's 'Raining Blood'!
We were recently given the privilege of speaking with Slayer frontman Tom Araya for an exclusive interview.
