Slayer, an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, was formed in 1981 and featured a fast and aggressive musical style that made them one of the founding“big four” bands of thrash metal – alongside Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax. The band has received five Grammy Award nominations, winning one in 2007 for the song“Eyes of the Insane” and one in 2008 for the song“Final Six.”
Between 1991 and 2013, the band sold five million albums in the United States. Considered the strongest member of the“Big Four” thrash metal bands, Slayer’s infectious guitar licks, graphically violent lyrics, and grisly artwork set the standard and their music was directly responsible for the rise of the death metal scene. Other bands who cite Slayer as their major influence include Slipknot, Gojira, Hatebreed, Pantera, System of a Down, and Lamb of God.
