The end of Slayer?

http://www.antimusic.com/news/07/aug/07-07.shtml
Quote:
(antiMusic) Tom Araya has told Worcester magazine that the next Slayer album may be their last. In an interview discussing the Slayer/Marilyn Manson coheadlining tour, the metal legend also discussed what the future may hold for Slayer and Araya feels that the end may be near.

"Well, there have been remarks made about seeing an old man headbang. And I have to agree," Araya said in the interview. "I think the Stones can do that, probably go out and do their stuff in their 80s, but it just wouldn't look right [for us], you know what I mean?

"It's actually pretty strenuous. That's why I don't see it going any further than a certain point in time. We have one more record to do, which is our deal with [Rick] Rubin, and we'll have to sit down and discuss the future. But I can't really see myself doing this at a later age."
read the whole interview here


actually it may be time for Slayer to call it quits. After Christ Illusion it's obvious that they've run out of ideas.

I can see the other guys continuing on in some form (maybe as Slayer or maybe not) without Tom. I always figured he'd be the one to call it quits.

I distinctly remember reading an interview with Tom that he actually wanted to do a solo record in the near future. He said there were alot of ideas he had that weren't appropriate for Slayer or something like that.

if they were calling it quits there'd be no reason to kick anyone out.

Fixed.

Seriously, though. The guy wrote Angel of Death, Postmortem & Raining Blood by himself. If that doesn't say "MVP," I'd like to know what does.

no arguments there but when I think of the "Slayer sound", King's guitar solos are one of the things I think of first.

Dave Lombardo is Slayer to me. None of the albums without him are any good. (Christ Illusion sucks too)

That said, DAMMIT I MUST SEE THEM BEFORE THEY QUIT!
