SLAYYYYYYYEEEERRR!!: Slayer Concert Review

My brother and I saw Slayer for the first time a few weeks after we saw Tool and Tomahawk.

This was the second time I had been to the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH.

It does not look like much on the outside, but the venue is really cool and has been around for decades.

Soooooo many have played and do play there.

We did not see any of the opening acts (I don’t even know who they were), but we were only there to see Slayer anyways.

The band (consisting of Singer/Bassist Tom Araya and Guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman) had just brought back original drummer Dave Lombardo to play with them for the first time in 10 years.  It was great seeing him back with them.

Slayer is definitely not for everyone, but for me, they are one of the best, if not the best, at what they do.

They’re mostly consistent on album and they blow most bands away in concert.

I think of them as like AC/DC, in terms of know what you’re going to get with them.

They’re sooooo heavy.  Sooooo loud.  They’re awesome.

This was such an awesome show.

My brother and I had a great time.
