Slayer Confirms Break-Up Rumors

For a while I have been hearing about a Slayer break up, but refused to post anything about it here due to the fact that something this important shouldn't be tossed around until it's confirmed. It has been confirmed and the story is as follows:

According to sources close to the band, and Kerry King's official statements. Slayer have officially broken up. Here is the reason Metalunderground.com was given for the break up:

“All members of Slayer have all realized that they no longer want to pursue their careers in the band. They are all moving on to do several different music projects. They came to realize this after they were almost near completion of their upcoming album. The follow-up to “God Hates Us All” was supposed to be released this summer as well. Also, due to this the band will not be performing at any shows including Ozzfest.”

When asked about this Kerry King said the following:

“I honestly didn’t see any future anymore for Slayer, everything just wasn’t feeling right anymore and I hate to leave our fans out there like this but we all feel it’s the best for us at this time. I will be involved with a few other projects as well. I will be teaming up with Avril Lavigne and Ben Moody (former Evanescence guitarist) on the new Avril cd that will be out sometime late this year, or early next year. A tour is said to follow as well. As many of you probably will disown me for this, nothing will make me change my mind, it is what I want to do. As for Tom and the rest of the guys, they are starting a new project with Creed’s guitarist Mark Tremonti. I do not know how well these new projects will work out, or how any of you will react to this. As I said this is what we all decided upon and I wish you all the thanks in the world for being the greatest fans anyone could ever ask for! Thank you all for your love and support over the years, but as I said this is the end of Slayer, every band has it’s demise eventually, this band lasted over 20 years which is more then most bands can say for themselves.”
