Slayer Guitarist Jeff Hanneman Leaves The Band

Slayer guitarist and co-founding member Jeff Hanneman has announced that he has made the decision to leave the band, following his recent medical problems. A message from Hanneman reads as follows:

"In what is probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, I have decided to part company with Slayer. You can imagine how difficult this was for me to do, what with Slayer being such a big part of my life for like thirty years, but due to my problems with my arm, I’ve been left with little other option. I’d just like to say thank you so much to the guys for helping me a part of something so important and amazing, and also a huge thanks should go to you, the fans, for all the support you’ve given me over the years. Thanks again guys! You rule!"

The remaining members of Slayer have also spoken about Hanneman’s departure, posting the following message online:

"We are completely saddened by Jeff’s decision to leave the band after so long, but we don’t want him to rush his recovery, which has suffered another setback recently. He’s more than just a guitarist, as I think our fans will agree, and Slayer just won’t be the same without him. Thank you Jeff.

"Of course the question on everybody’s minds now is what are we gonna do? Obviously we’ve got our tour dates coming up soon which Gary (Holt, Exodus guitarist) and Pat (O’Brien, Cannibal Corpse guitarist) have graciously agreed to be a part of, but the long term future of the band remains a mystery even to us."

More details on Slayer’s plans for the future are expected to be revealed shortly.

A buddy of mine saw the pre "Hanneman sick leave" Slayer live and Hannemann looked like he really didn't give a f*** about being in the band anymore. Played bad, barely moved, really didn't care.

And many others agree.

But, come to think of it, what Big 4 band HASN'T died since the 90's began? Anthrax hasn't had a notable release since Persitence of Time, Slayer killed themselves when they decided to be a low-quality punk band/try Nu-Metal and never recovered, Metallica well.. We ALL know that one, and anyone who thinks Megadeth will release anything anywhere near as good as their first four albums is completely delusional.

They should all hang it up or try something other than Thrash; it's for the young, angry and small venues, not the old, matured, and stadiums.

Yes the big 4 are old;they write@record like old men but they paved the path. I love the Warbringers;Eviles ; Bonded by Bloods etc but they definitely wear they're influences on their sleeves.

I can't believe so many people are getting all bent out of shape over a fvckin' joke. I understand Slayer is a well-known band and loved by many, including myself, but sh**... Just because the guy's health issue was used doesn't make the person who wrote the article a bad fvckin' dude... it makes the JOKE!! on APRIL FOOLS DAY!!! more believable.

And I do agree that they probably will hang it up soon.. and even if this article was true, like others have said, what the fvck can you do about it? Not a damn thing.

I dunno. I just find all this sh** to be a little ridiculous.. I will admit that this was a humorous joke. It's obviously people who aren't members of MU that are getting all whiney about this. They don't know that MU does this sh!t every April Fools Day since what? Like... 2003 or something? lol

I like all of Slayer's stuff, old to new. I was disappointed with Christ Illusion but they made up for it with World Painted Blood, though CI wasn't awful. As much as I like them, I find it quite rare that I listen to them anymore.

I've found over the years that most of my Slayer favorites depend on my mood regarding which era or album I spin. Even Diabolous has its place.

Ya, I can't say I listen to em a whole hell of a lot anymore...likewise sh**allica and Megadump

When I do, I find myself favoring the primitive sh!t...Show No Mercy, Killing is My Biz, Kill em All

As for Horribolus...well, I have always been partial to Screaming from the Skies....not that its any great tune or anything, I just like it

I'm the opposite Oz, CI had enough great tracks to keep me listening but WPB didn't click with me apart from the title track. IMO Kreator are making better new Slayer than Slayer are :P

THIS IS HILARIOUS!!!!!! it follows the perfect overused "amicable" split format...if it was for real though, i think it would've been interesting to see who filled in, mabye Marty Friedman or even Zakk Wylde

World painted blood was their weakest cd to date. Poor production and sh**ty guitar tones. All the other albums are fantastic.

"Grow up and gain some fvcking experience before you start in on your stupid fvcking ignorant drivel, ya punk fvckin kook" - hellrat

and almost right after that is:

"I'm with you btbamfav20. Love all the new Slayer. The Haunted lost me a couple albums ago, but I was a big fan from album #1-4 with both vocalists." - Deathbringer

so ya im pretty sure Deathbringer isn't a "stupid fvcking ignorant punk fvckin kook" who has the same opinion as me. And ironically i didnt like ANY older Slayer until i got used to their new sh** more and came to more appreciate (and now enjoy more) the older music. It's called an opinion, and not everyone has to be yours.

Not so fast Bam-bam...'Bringer didn't call anyone a 'dumbass' for not liking new slayer

I explained the reasoning for my vehemence on the Archenemy thread in response to your pursuit of your complaint there, as I clicked on that before this topic tonight

Still can't fathom how anyone would prefer the newer slayer records to the old, but I certainly wouldn't ever call anyone a 'dumbass' for doing so

So yeah, grow up and gain some fvcking PERSPECTIVE, dumbass! :)

Slayer was at their best from 85 to 90 in my opinion. The four albums released in that period are my favorites. With the exception of the punk covers album;I don't think they've made a horrible album. Unlike The Loads of Metallica and Risks of Megadeth. They've stayed pretty true@ consistant to their style over the years for better or worse imo. I think you can have the old vs new debate with just about any band that's been around longer than 10 years and has released 5 or more albums. Slayers newest isn't something I reach for when in need of a Slayer fix;but it isn't that bad a record.

For those who don't know, calm down, April Fools, gents! ;)

To be perfectly honest, I am actually worried about this becoming reality.

I don't care about Metallica, Anthrax or Megadeth, around or not, I don't care. All the same to me.

But, I am NOT willing to let go of Slayer. Not yet.
