On 23 January 2018, thrash metal icons Slayer announced they would be wrapping up their career after 37 years together with one last tour of duty around the globe. However, before the band sets out on that final sojourn on 10 May, Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph sat down and talked about all things Slayer in a new video documentary they have shared.
In the new video, King and Araya look back at how the band first came together, while Bostaph and Holt recall where they were when they heard Slayer for the first time. Bostaph was Slayer’s drummer from 1992-2001 and returned in 2013 to replace the outgoing Dave Lombardo. You can watch the video documentary below here.
