According to Punknews.org, Mediaskare has announced plans for a hardcore tribute to influential metal act Slayer. The tentative list of participants includes The Warriors, On Broken Wings, Dino Cazares (ex-Fear Factory), New Dead Radio, Silent Civilian, The Taste Of Blood, Cold War, Contra, and The Burning Room.

In 2003, a similarly themed tribute was released by Spook City. The compilation, titled "Cover in Blood" included performances by Most Precious Blood and Sworn Vengeance but tracks were confined to the material from Slayer's classic "Reign in Blood" album.

The label is aiming for a November 8th release and expects to confirm more artists shortly.

Slayer rules. One of the only bands to stay true to their roots. They deserve a tribute.
