SLAYER have released the episode 2 of its »SLAYER looks back on 37 years« video interview series. You can check it out here:
In this episode, Tom Araya and Kerry King talk about SLAYER‘s earliest shows, especially the band’s very first show as SLAYER: how nervous they were, the home-made flash pots that just didn’t quite work the way they had intended, and more. The clip contains not only vintage live footage of the band, but the band-made flyers that promoted some of their first shows. In these early days, SLAYER toured the country in Araya‘s Camero and a U-Haul trailer, a far cry from the way they tour today.
