The world is ablaze, everyone is checked out of reality, and we are going to listen to Slayer and toast marshmallows in the flames. Seriously, humans, you were warned by the greatest metal band of all time* that you were going straight to Hell in flames. Did you listen? No! So now you can watch your human world explode as it is possessed by the demons of our inner bestial misanthropy.
All kidding aside, the fire rises and the world falls apart, but for most of us this has been obviously the case since we were knee-high, so we have been blasting Slayer to keep sane in an insane world... or insane in a world that is too sane... something like that.
This 6th of June at 7:06am (six hours and sixty-six minutes) you can launch yourself into a demonic trance of unholy union with the occult mythological forces that will tear this world apart by listening to Slayer! To make it easier, we have hauled from the vault Obscure and Obscene, a Slayer bootleg from the mid-1980s which should keep your toes tapping and fists ripping out the viscera of the oblivious... or something like that.**
Like any good Slayer fan, I am warming up the stereo for a full 24 hours of Slayer starting early tomorrow, or maybe during the witching hour tonight. This is our holiday and we choose to celebrate it with the metal band that heralded the end of the world, as the sky turns black and unspeakable horror grips us. Relish the moment of death... and blast Slayer!
