Slayer And Rob Zombie Promise Hell On Earth
By Andrew Tijs
Metal heroes Slayer and Rob Zombie join forces for a sixteen-date tour across the US and Canada.
The tour, dubbed Hell On Earth, is purportedly the first time these metal legends have shared a stage since Ozzfest in 1999 – twelve years ago (we guess that sharing places on the Soundwave bill this year don’t quite count.
Slayer axeman Kerry King said in a statement: “You can expect no less than 'hell on earth’. Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag...”
And Rob Zombie got a little Spinal Tap on the fans, saying, “Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises. Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell.”
They’ll play 16 dates in late July and early August, from Pittsburgh to Seattle and hopping up Canada for shows in Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Victoria and Vancouver.
Before the tour kicks off, Slayer join Metallica, Anthrax and Megadeth for the monstrous Big Four concert in California on April 23.
(Are you ready to go to hell? ;) what a tour that will be, metal till you BURN!)
