National Day Of Slayer

Today is June 6th, 2006 (6/6/06), and that can only mean one thing National Slayer Day!!! From the web site:

6.6.06 isn’t a date that comes around very often (once per millennium, to be exact), and while plenty of stupid horror movies and terrible albums will be released for the hype value of the day that bears “the number of the beast”, we here at NDoS decided that this would be a perfect day for Hessians across the country to come together and engage in something upon which we can all agree – listening to Slayer! Also, do you really want those evangelical Neo-Cons to have all the fun with their “National Day of Prayer”?

I’m trusting that each and every one of you have “Reign In Blood” in your CD collection so I have decided that for my part, I will post a few covers of Slayer song for you to listen to. Turn your speakers up to 11 now!

First off we have som a capella Slayer with Japanese beatboxer, Dokaka, playing “Angel Of Death”

After that we have some classical (not classic, that’ll come later) Slayer with the String Quartet playing “Expendable Youth”

Next is Wckr Spgt perfoming a folkish version of “South Of Heaven”

Here is the just plain wierd Dictionaraoke performing “South Of Heaven”

On a more nerdy note we have “Angel Of Death” played on a NES Chip

And for something harder, here is Vader doing a live cover of “Raining Blood”

Lastly is a few short clips of live Slayer banter in between songs.

Remember, DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren’t just about celebrating; they’re about forcing it upon non-participants.

Below is a video of classic Slayer, in their heyday of 1985, playing “The Antichrist” live at Studio 54. Slayer owns your soul!

And oh yeah, Slayer is playing the Filmore on Friday.

    Thought of giving my Dad a Slayer CD…since today is his birthday and all…then had second thoughts. My Dad is all about Home Depot…whereas Slayer? Not so much.

    But at least we know what to give you for YOUR birthday!
