Slayer’s Old School Set in Pictures




There’s no way to understand what being at a Slayer show is, unless you’ve actually been to one.  Like sex, it’s one of those things in life where no words can come close to conveying the feeling, and even if someone gets the gist of it, there’s no way he’ll ever come close to hitting the mark of what it’s like in person.  I heard about Slayer shows long before I went to my first back in February 2007, but no explanation came within a country mile of preparing me for just how brutal and intense an experience it is.  And as talented as I am with words, I won’t even try to explain.  Instead, let these pictures do their best.  Thank my Samsung Galaxy III for braving Hell on Earth.
