Formed in Huntington Park, California in 1981, Slayer produced a fast and aggressive musical style which made them one of the founding“big four” bands of thrash metal, alongside Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax. The band’s lyrics and album art have led to album bans, delays, lawsuits, and criticism. Despite this, its music has been highly influential, often being cited by many bands as an influence musically, visually, and lyrically.
The eagle logo was suggested by the band’s longtime producer and collaborator Rick Rubin. He asked for a book on Nazi war medals and he picked out the eagle as the logo for“Seasons.” The band used it on stage banners as well. Everyone got the wrong impression. They saw what they wanted to see, not that the banners were actually huge upside-down crosses. Rubin came up with the ideas and he was Jewish. People complained, but Slayerignored it all.
