SLAYER VISITS SCOTIABANK PLACE FEB. 9

House of Blues Concerts Canada presents Warner Music Recording Artists SLAYER with special guests... UNEARTH TICKETS ON SALE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18 at 10 a.m.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 14, 2006) - SLAYER - the masters of metal are back! The thrash metal titans have returned to pummel listeners with a raging onslaught of new music guaranteed to lay waste to MP3 players, car stereo speakers and whatever else gets in their way.

Christ Illusion marks the long-awaited return of the legendary SLAYER. It's the first record in five years and it's the first record in fifteen years with the original band line-up; Christ Illusion is a cacophony of brutality. Steeped in scorching riffs and a litany of menacing tracks/tirades on religion and violence, SLAYER forges ahead on its devastating path of aural destruction with ten new songs, each charged with the electric hostility for which SLAYER is renowned. With this album, the band marks its territory.

SLAYER is often assailed for its subject matter, though the band is unrepentant. Beyond being controversial, SLAYER is an exceptional force in music, highly praised for its trailblazing style of fast, heavy and aggressive music yet bristling with melody. The much-heralded return of Dave Lombardo to the drummer's throne will leave fans gasping for breath as he clobbers the listener on song after song.

SLAYER has created a mesmerizing force and has influenced many of today's most successful bands, including Slipknot and Sepultura, and continues to earn new generations of fans, while staying true to its ceaselessly devoted followers. SLAYER's legacy is cemented in music forever and the band remains undaunted in its directive to make punishing, aggressive and exciting music. The band has exceeded themselves far beyond thrash metal to become an unstoppable juggernaut without equal.
