It appears an old life maxim has just been re-written. Good things come to those who spill their creative guts, not those who wait.

Example: Los Angeles-based SLAYER fan Jake. In a truly ingenious effort to raise money for SLAYER tickets by offering to sell his 1997 Ford Escort LX, Jake and his friends filmed a spoof of Lincoln’s recent Matthew McConaughey commercial and released it on YouTube on Monday:

Today, three days and over 61,000 views later, SLAYER’s Tom Araya took time off from his studio sessions to respond to Jake’s Hail Mary throw.

The Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot wrote that the five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning SLAYER is "one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre." Their membership in "The Big Four" - Metallica, SLAYER, Megadeth and Anthrax - the four bands that defined the thrash/metal genre - secures their place in music history. Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that SLAYER brings to its live shows, having been named "Best Live Band" by numerous media outlets including Revolver, SPIN, and Metal Hammer. With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society - God's terrifying global genocide, the chaos of our broken political system, chemical warfare, the hideous minds of serial killers, and the way-too-close proximity of world horrors that technology has brought us, SLAYER remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the Mainstream. SLAYER’s founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in since. The band is currently in the studio recording a new album set for an early 2015 release.
