It was just a short time ago when the news began circulating about Slayer and the Fifth Leg of their “Final World Tour”. The North American run will feature support from Lamb Of God, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse and the bands full itinerary was outlined HERE. Since the other bands would be releasing their own thoughts and some expanded press notes, I’ve chosen to shine the spotlight on each of them. Here is the Press Release from Lamb Of God.
The Press Release:
Music legends Slayer have just announced Leg 5: North America, the fifth overall leg of their final world tour. Heavy rock icons LAMB OF GOD will continue on as direct support to the tour, kicking off on May 2, 2019 at the Ak-Chin Amphitheatre in Phoenix, AZ. The tour will culminate at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, MA on May 25. LAMB OF GOD, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse will support Slayer on all Leg 5: North America dates.

You guys remember yesterday when the Internet was torn asunder with the thinly veiled announcement that Slayer would be heading out on their final tour right? I spoke about it HERE if you didn’t see what I added to the mix. Well, not 24 hours later we have the official press release, and the dates where they will be crushing our skulls for one final go round. You can check this out below the poster that we also shared yesterday.
The Press Release:
After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end.
Slayer will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank their fans for all of their support over the years, for making the last three-and-a-half decades so packed with good times and unforgettable experiences, and will then move on. Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament will support Slayer on the first leg, North America, of its final world tour.

Despite what some might tell you, print is NOT dead and many still enjoy the medium when it comes to books, magazines and comic books. With that being said I am taking a moment to share with you the news about a new magazine that comes care of Alex Skolnick, Randy Blythe and Tom Bejgrowicz. Check out the cover and details that I culled from its website for your indulgence.
From The Official Website:
“UNBUILT is a biannual, limited edition culture and lifestyle publication debuting Issue 01 in Spring 2016. Conceived, developed, and designed by Tom Bejgrowicz, Tom partnered with fellow editors D. Randall Blythe (Vocalist, Lamb of God) and Alex Skolnick (Lead Guitarist, Testament) to bring UNBUILT to life.
It’s raining and gloomy here in NYC today and that is making me spend far too much time surfing around the web and “ugh” on Facebook but fortunately my email has been hefty with awesome news to share with the readership to get me away from the drivel over there. With that being said, once such note announced an early 2016 tour with a headlining Lamb Of God who will be bringing along Anthrax as direct support and both Deafheaven and Kylesa as the lead off bands. I’ve embedded the tour poster and the official press copy for your indulgence and then I’ll return with my two cents.
The Press Release: “World-renowned American heavy rock band LAMB OF GOD are pleased to announce their upcoming January/February 2016 U.S. headline tour featuring direct support from very special guests and thrash metal legends Anthrax, with additional support from two more bands to be announced soon.
