The response for International Day of Slayer has been overwhelming! We appreciate your votes of support but due to the high volume of inquiry, we cannot answer emails individually. Don't worry, we hear you! Based on your questions and comments, the NDoS FAQ is here!
How can I support or celebrate the International Day of Slayer?
It's easy. Just follow the recommendations on the main page. All you must do is listen to Slayer (and don't go to work, ideally). Tell your friends, throw Slayer parties, play Slayer covers with your band, or just blast Slayer in your car with the windows rolled down and scream, "SLAYER!" at pedestrians.
Ok, but I want to do more!
Great! Download and print these fliers (PDF, 3.4mb) and pass them out at public gatherings or local metal concerts. Don't put them under windshield wipers, though. It's wasteful and it never works.
Is it the National Day of Slayer or the International Day of Slayer? I don't live in America, and I like Slayer. I want to participate!
By all means, please do! And it's both the National and International Day of Slayer, to be clear. The "National" part is for the US-based organization and events. The "International" side is for anyone outside the US who wants to participate. Just follow the recommendations regardless of where you live. It's the world's first (and only) metal holiday!
What's the big deal about Slayer? Why not a National Metal Day?
National Day of Slayer is meant to be a National Metal Day. Slayer exemplifies metal to the world in terms of presentation and sound, not to mention their sustained popularity. To the general public, "metal" can mean anything from AC/DC to Korn, and that's a broader idea than we want to promote. Most metal fans can agree on Slayer, so Slayer it is. If you don't like them for some bizarre reason, stay home from work on National Day of Slayer and listen to the metal band of your choice. We don't mind.
You realize that 6/6/06 was 4 years ago, right?
Yep, and Columbus Day still happens even though it commemorates events from 1492. Help us celebrate, or shut up and get out of our way.
