MetalTown 2012, Gothenburg, SwedenSLAYER READY FOR METAL TOWN 2012!

Last summer, SLAYER almost overturned the Ullevi Stadium with its already legendary gig as part of the “Big 4”. A 30-anniversary Slayer in overall great form. Now the thrash metal kings return to Gothenburg for their first gig at the Metal Center in five years!

Eleven albums, thousands of gigs and 30 years together. That is what has made Slayer one of the world’s largest and most important metal bands, ever. While others are forced to live in nostalgia and old memories, Slayer continued to constantly persuade and never lose their grip as the world’s hardest band. Always beautifully brutal.

Since one of the best and most influential metal album, “Reign in Blood”, was released 25 years ago, they had a demo producer Rick Rubin at his side. A winning partnership which also led them to the latest album “World Painted Blood,” which came a few years ago.

Sonisphere Festival UKSONISPHERE BRINGS THE BIG 4 TO THE UK FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER

Yes, it’s really true. SONISPHERE will be bringing together METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX in the UK for the first time in history to exclusively headline the Friday night at Knebworth.

Given that 2010’s event had sold out before IRON MAIDEN took to the stage, and the hugely exciting headliners set for next year, SONISPHERE can not guarantee that day tickets will be available for 2011, so fans are advised to get their tickets early to ensure they don’t miss out on what is already shaping up to be the festival’s most exciting year yet.

As previously announced, BIFFY CLYRO will headline the Saturday night with SLIPKNOT closing the Sunday. Beat that, Santa.
