Slayer Frontman Explains Unholy Alliance Trivium Slot

Photo of Slayer

Band Photo: Slayer (?)

In a recent interview with Thrash Hits, Slayer frontman Tom Araya explained why more established acts like Trivium and Mastodon were being given slots on the Unholy Alliance tour instead of younger groups. An excerpt from the conversation is as follows:

Q: Some people would say that you, Slayer, are in a position to give smaller bands much-needed exposure by taking them on tour with you, rather than taking Trivium and Mastodon out who are already established.

A: "I hate to say this, but at this stage of the game, for as many years as we’ve been out as a band, it’s about income. When it comes to having a band who you would love to give exposure to, in all honesty, you would have to be really wowed by that band. I can honestly say that there’s only been one other band in recent times that has done that for us, and that’s SYSTEM OF A DOWN. Nobody knew them, but we heard them and we were like ‘Fuck! Let’s take these guys out on the road’. And look what happened."

Well that a real kanick in the kanackers. I've only ever bought Terrorizer once as it happens which was August 2004 'cause they had a load of detail of Megadeth's "The System Has Falied" album which I was crapping myself over and wanted to read as much about as possible. It's not a bad magazine but I don't tend to buy magazine's much as due to coming on MU everyday, I usually go through it and find myself going "yeah old news, yeah I know" all the way through and find I've just wasted a fiver.

Bands that wow the world must be intact with other great bands too.

Wow fail right there. I just lost a WHOLE lot of respect for Tom Araya and Slayer all together. f***in Sellouts. Your no better than the scum your bringing on tour with you now. Piece of sh**.

Now that I got that out of my system. I still and pretty ashamed to read what he said. Yeah, you are doing a job and you expect to make a certain amount of money and such. But, come on, thats sh**. You honestly believe Trivium is going to bring you a good fan base. There's plenty of young acts that would be more deserving than Triv-pieceofsh**-ium. The Absence, Arsis and Meshuggah just to name a few.

A lot of people dislike trivium because they are "sellouts" etc. I for one like trivium but i do see how headlining over SLAYER is bullsh**. I am a huge SLAYER fan and dont get it why no one is raggin on them for playin for income, when if this was metallica people would go crazy with hate posts (not to be off topic). Regardless im fans of both, and i will be regardless how much money they make.

Come on! Oh sweet lord of darkness, do you all really believe that Slayer is any different from any other band. They want to play their music and they want to make money doing it. DUH. If they don't make enough money they can't afford to tour, nor pay their bills or raise their kids. Besides you all act as if they are some righteous band that is infallable. WRONG! They are a group of dudes that don't even believe anything they say anymore. They just happen to know what will please the people that buy their songs, no wonder they have stayed the same for so long. Kerry writes the words and Tom (an active catholic member) sings them. All bands that can afford to go out and have a major tour have sold out. If they don't they would be club bands you never hear of in some hole in the wall. All of you need to understand how the world works before you get out of the basement. Slayer aren't gods, they are riff masters with really retarded solos that write scary songs about the devil ... OOOOH. How evil is Kerry King when he is playing with his kids, not really at all. It's an act on stage to make you bang your head and pump your fist and buy their cd's. Slayer is one of my all time favorite bands but I don't stop listening if they take a band i don't like on tour with them. Hell they could take Justin Timberlake for all i care, If i don't want to hear it i won't listen. Now officially Slayer can be lumped in with Metallica as that sell out band that everybody hates because they have found the "Ecstasy of Gold". Piss off all of you, stop thinking bands are so perfect. their f'n bands that play music for a living. IT'S A LIVING not a revolution.

The only reason I see selling out as an option, is if I had mouths to feed, in which case I don't, so in their shoes, I'd stay trve for the art and die of starvation before letting a sh*t band like Trivium take a slot where bands like Kvlt ov Azazel, Averse Sifera, and Scourge should be.

Speaking of which, anyone know where I can find music from the boston-based Death Metal band Scourge (I specify because there are apparently 2 bands with that name, so I specify that I want to listen to the band from Boston).

I wouldn't go as far as to call Slayer as 'Sellouts'. How do we know how much their management / American recordings / Warners pulls the strings on the U.A. They way I see it, Tom meant that they will have to pick 'relatively' known bands just in order to get the financing etc etc for the whole tour. I bet Slayer isn't financing the whole thing out of their pockets, that's for sure

There's no explanation for Trivium's slot. It's just sad. And as far as SOAD, I was "wowed" by them until my mind couldn't take their nonsense anymore. I despise them now, and if Tom Araya and Slayer are responsible for ANYTHRING of SOAD's, it's their long overstayed welcome, and their battering assault of repetition and incoherence. Or something.

Sure the day slayer is no more will be sad indeed, but it will also leave a big space for new bands to rise to the occasion to fill the shoes they left behind. Metal is coming back, especially with the reformation of legends like carcass and at the gates. The genre certainly has a future.

First of, I hate Slayer. I've never enjoyed their music, thats just me. Kerry King annoy's me to no end. That being said, I will defend them here. I'm betting that they're not wanting to make money for themselves, they're probably wanting to make money to pay for this tour. Tour's are not cheap. And the UA is probably pretty costley. Bringing on a band like Trivium would bring in their fanbase, thus more money to pay off the concert. The more money this tour brings in will make investors more likely to put money in it which, in turn, will possibly lower ticket and merch cost. That would be better for you, the fan. And please, before you start calling anyone a sell-out, just think, you would love to be able to buy nice things. And I know that Slayer are already rich, but just because they want to make more money doesn't mean they've sold out, it means they're good business men. Metal, true metal, isn't about how much money a band makes, it's about the music they make. And if Slayer continues to make the music you the fans have loved for 20-someodd years, isn't that all that matters? But what do I know, I'm not a Slayer fan.

^Most of the people on this board are kids? Really? How does one come about that logic Sherlock? In fact, I'm actually one of the few regulars on here under 20, and I still wouldn't call myself ignorant of "why bands (& people for that matter) do the things they do." The reason so many are angry on here about the reason slayer gives for touring with Trivium, is that Metalheads, as a rule, are genarally adamant about their principles, and Slayer has given up on theirs. I understand the need for money, sure, they need to pay their bills. Bu they don't need Trivium to do that. they got fairly wealthy in the first place simply BECAUSE they were Slayer. they recently released a cd, that actually did fairly well I hear. Their label doesn't need other big-name bands on the tour to help with the bill, they've paid the bill many times before under the assurance that the immortal name of Slayer would draw plenty of fans by itself, and it has, several times so far.

So now to have Slayer, the band that everybody who hated Metallica listened to, now travelling down that same dilluted road as those they once stood in contention to, is simply heart-wrenching. The use of the Satanic imagery was used for the same reason that punk music used the swastika; not because they actually believed in that image, but because it attracted the disenfranchised, it brought together the underdogs in the music scene. Slayer were the band for the outsider that everybody loved. Now, they let us know that it was all just a giant commercial machine?

As far as I'm concerned, yes they can be lumped in with Metallica, which is kindof ironic considering that they are touring with "The band who would be Metallica", Trivium. I will always treasure what they did with Reign in Blood, but as of right now, f*** em'.

Let's see, I'm 19, so I am a law abiding american, I work at Global Response Communications, so yes I have a real job, and before that, I've worked in Construction since I was 14 under three different companies that build houses in South Florida, so yes I would say I'm hard-working. yes, I do live with my parents, but only because with the housing market the way it is, It's less expensive to pay a little rent to my parents while I save up money for my own place. Oh, and I registered to vote when I was 17, so I've got that little tidbit taken control of as well.

Plus, just because the first person to respond to you may be what you qualify as a "kid", doesn't mean the point still isnt valid.

No way I'm with YOU man.^_^ Everyone else can call me an idiot all they want, but last time I checked every opinion matters, otherwise nothing would be fun and no one would learn anything.

After checking out this topic, i had to say something. I would much rather go to a show with diversity in the bands then pay and sit through a show with 3 to 5 bands who all sound the f**king same. Its happens all the time, and its f**king gay. About the "income" comment Araya made, who gives a f**k. Who has not got there pay check from work, and been like "damn it, i wish i made more money" ? (if thats what he ment). Sellouts ? They have been around forever, and a lot (i.e millions) of people love them , buy there sh*t and pay to go to shows, so that makes a band a sellout band ? Because so many love there music ? That makes no f**king sense. This is not directed to everyone on here, but to the few, grow up. As for Trivium, they work just as hard at making there own music, as Slayer did and i guess still does. At least give 'em that, also the fact that there trying to bring back some old school thrash metal, and none of this f**king "as i lay dying,protest the hero,all that remains" Bull s**t.Everyones taste in music is different, even if the difference is slight, so get off your high and mighty horse and live your own life, stop telling other people how to live theres (and yeah i know thats how i sound right now , so don't bother pointing it out)
