Rumours are spreading across the internet that a huge tour of North America will take place this Summer, which will see Slayer and Lamb Of God co-headline a trek which will also feature fellow thrash metal legends Anthrax and Testament, as well as Polish blackened death metal favourites, Behemoth. Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick and Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe have both spoken of signing on for an exciting tour of North America and this, one would assume is it. More details including tour dates etc. will be revealed once this is confirmed.

I think just not all at the same time.
That's a large package (that's what she said), I bet tickets will be pricey.

With Slayer, Testament and Anthrax on the bill, I'd say Lamb Of God and Behemoth should be scrapped so either Overkill, Kreator or Exodus can be on this tour.

Slayer, Testament, Megadeth and Anthrax did Thrash of the Titans in ‘92. Slayer and Testament toured in ‘15. Testament and Anthrax toured in ‘11. I think.,,,

Maybe Anthrax wasn’t there for Thrash of the Titans. And maybe it was billed as Clash if the Titans. My memory is shot. In any case, I’m going!

Actually Bolt Thrower, there were two lineups of Clash of the Titans tour: the European one (1990) had Slayer, Megadeth, Testament and Suicidal Tendencies, and the U.S. version (1991) had Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and Alice in Chains.

pit story---clash of the titans 1991---tingley coliseum, ABQ NM

16 years old, in my final semester of high school...4 of us snagged my buddy sylvan's mom's vw van and hauled a$$ to the venue 3 hours away, slayer fvcking pumping non stop the entire way....I think we listened to every goddamn record ever released up to that point, which would have been seasons

arrive at the venue completely jacked out of our minds on adrenalin and fvckin psych, ready for mayhem...anthrax is fortunately "headlining" that night, which means we don't have to sit thru their bullsh!t to get to what we want, plus we'll be able to get outta there early and miss the traffic jams after the show...double bonuses

we go in early and head up into the way back in obscurity bleachers and wait for the lights to drop so we can burn a marley....lights out and we're puffing that mean hooter, getting completely fvckin hellbaked. the opener hits the stage, music sounds pretty slow but pretty heavy, singers got this kinda nasally croon going...we're like what the f*** is this sh!t man!! but as the set continues and the bake settles in a little deeper, we all find ourselves nodding along in mesmerized unision...this sh!t is fvckin cool!! was the first and unfortunately last time I ever saw Alice in Chains, and I will never forget it

first of the headliners was megadeth, long before they became megadump, when they still knew how to kick fvcking asss...the band was on fvcking fire man, mustaine was spitting venom like a viper and absolutely terrorizing his flying V...they had to turn the house lights on about halfway thru the set because this gigantic fvcking ape of a dude was just hammering people in the dark. this dude was huge, and he was f***ing stacked! looked like he ate the whole fvcking bag of 'roids ya know...his face was all screwed up into a sneer of roid rage and it kinda made him look a bit tarded. he had this whole big area cleared on the packed floor, in a pair of farmer john overalls with only one shoulder strap hooked, no shirt, veins popping out everwhere, stalking about the perimeter swinging one giant fist up and down like a frikken wrecking ball with that tarded fvckin sneer on his face....NO one would go in there with him. he kept that whole pit cleared for the rest of the set, except for one little Spanish dude in full denim with patches all over his jacket who kinda bobbed in, body slammed the roid ape and bounced off back into the crowd, barely missing the swing of the wrecking ball. after megas set, as the roar of the croud was dying down, someone was all "that lifter dude was gnarly!" my buddy thor, in classic deadpan, kinda shruggs and says "yeah, no one could face the down syndrome I guess..." haha :)

NOW it was time! fvcking Slaytanic dudes!! we'd all been to quite a few metal shows so far, but none of us had seen slayer yet, and that was all of our favorite fvcking band, far and away....we descended to the floor and start pushing our way toward the stage, but could get no closer than 5 or 6 deep....thors a tiny little dude, maybe 5 foot even back then, and he was getting lifted off his feet in the crushing surges and swells of the crowd. at one point he kept getting his face smashed up sideways against this big fat sweaty indian dude's back, just getting the full face shot of the back grease....he kept hammering on the guys kidneys trying to get some literal breathing room, and he looks up and sees me laughing at him...he yells up "he cant even feel it dude, hes way too pork!" haha fvckin thor :)

the show is ripping on, song after earth blasting song, the crowd going fvcking apesh**...at least it seemed like they were until Angel of Death came on, that place went off the fvcking hinge! a giant figure 8 pit opened right away in front of the stage and we were standing on the sidelines tripping out on the full on speed and collision force of that thing...after a few seconds I can sense sylvan psyching up, like when we'd be about to drop in on something scary and exposed while skiing or mtn biking...sure enough, he suddenly goes Fvck It! flips his hat around backwards and goes charging in...I follow a split second later, knowing any further hesitation might get me psyched out.
It was fvcking chaos in there, bodies flying in every direction at maximum velocity...if you went with the rough general flow of the thing as fvcking fast as you could run it was ok, but motherfvckers caught in the cross currents were going fvcking down left and right, but mainly center, at the x of the 8, where the roided out ape tard was randomly swinging the battle hammer fist into traffic....that crooked crossroads sent many a wayward metal disciple into the gutter, my buddy theo included. I was coming to the intersection at max tilt, flaring to the outside a bit to hopefully avoid a head on when I see him coming toward me. I dive across the x right before we're passing and we glance across at eachother as we go by...I see this gigantic fist appear right in front of his neck as hes got his head turned toward me, and a cvnt hair of a second later he hits the clothesline full gas...lat thing I see is his head whipping back as his feet go running out from under him....didn't see him smack the ground but he was already up and gone a couple seconds later when I came back around on the return....never see any of my bros again for the rest of the show, we were f***ing scattered and shattered by the Slaytanic Wehrmacht!

so the craziest show of my young life comes to an end and I haul a$$ outta there to find some water, so fvcking thirsty! I slurp at the nasty old drinking fountain for what seems like forever, take a p!ss, and then go look for my bros....I pass one of the merch tables and get a slayer shirt, the screaming skull made up of artillery shells and ammo belts and sh** with Clash of the Titans and the dates on the back...I find sly in the causeway near the front gates and hes wearing the same goddamn shirt! I was like dude, couldn't you have got a different shirt? he's all f*** you bro, I prolly bought this before you! we don't see them other dudes, so we head out to the hippy van...a little while later we see theo rolling up, keeps looking over his shoulder all wild eyed, and he was wearing the same fvcking shirt! he rolls up all "dudes! that was fvcking Gnarly!" turns out he didn't even know he had gotten taken by the ape man, had no idea what had happened! he was all "dude right after I saw you I was just suddenly on the ground and then right away all these hands pulled me up and it was right back into full charge dude!" haha :)

we were starting to wonder what the hell happened to thor when we see him come kinda limping out of the shadows, all diminutive and forlorn looking, like a lost hobbit...he comes into the light, and hes wearing, you fvckin guessed it, the exact same f***ing shirt! what he isn't wearing is his right shoe, completely barefoot, everything gone! we were like wtf dude? he was all "I don't even know what happened dudes, I guess I just blew out!"

definitely one of the sickest concerts of all fvcking time, to be forever remembered and cherished as the show that blew thor's f***in socks off! haha :)
