Tom Araya: Slayer Hasn't Yet Taken Its Course

Slayer frontman Tom Araya spoke with Australia's Time Off magazine about how the heavy metal band has managed to stick together since the early '80s. "It's still the same, I don't feel any older," Araya said. "Our audience definitely has changed, though. I guess 25 years ago I wasn't selling books at my kid's book fair either, but 25 years ago I wasn't married! I can't say that the thought [of moving on from Slayer] hasn't crossed my mind, but everything takes its course, and you have to allow everything to take its course. I don't know how much longer the course has for us, but everything has to take its turn."

I saw them play in Brisbane (Time Off is a Brisbane entertainment/gig mag) and they were at their brutal best. Mastodon also were pretty damn good, but nothing topped off Slayer, they played an awesome set....only thing was, they played nothing from Hell Awaits.
THANKS FOR A GREAT NIGHT SLAYER!!!! Awesome!!!!
