Slayer - Kerry King

 

 

Slayer is an American thrash metal band, founded in Huntington Park, California, in 1982[1] by Kerry King (guitars), Tom Araya (bass and vocals), Jeff Hanneman (guitars) and Dave Lombardo (drums). Lombardo has been in and out of the group three times, but the others have been permanent members. Hanneman and King are the group's main songwriters. Slayer is often mentioned as one of the "Big Four" of thrash metal, along with Metallica, Anthrax, and Megadeth. ... Christ Illusion was eventually released on August 8, 2006 and it immediately debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, selling 62,000 copies.[citation needed] This is the band's highest chart position in the United States to date, proving the 2000s to be the most commercially successful period for the band within the mainstream. Christ Illusion improved on their previous highest charting album Divine Intervention, which debuted at #8 in 1994. The following week, Christ Illusion dropped to #41 on the charts.[citation needed] During the week of the Christ Illusion CD release, the full album could be heard on Slayer's MySpace page.
