The Slayer Podcast
This week on NewbsRadio, we’re talking Slayer. It’s been a while since we’ve felt so close to the dark lord here on NewbsRadio, but we’ve put it off long enough. It’s time, it’s time to get in touch with our bad selves. And I do mean bad. Slayer are arguably the scariest band to come out of the 80s metal scene, or if you don’t agree with that, you’ve got to agree that they were the most popular/scariest band out of the 80s. No one was quite like Slayer. So we wanted to do this right, in fear of Kerry King visiting us in our dreams Freddie Kruger styles for years to come, so we invited the guy who probably knows Slayer better than Slayer – D. X. Ferris. D. X. has written the Bloomsbury’s 33 1/3 book about Slayer’s Reign in Blood and more recently wrote another Slayer book entitled:
It actually has 96 words in the title, and Christian Zyp nails all of them later in the episode so get ready for that. Click the link above to get yourself a copy from the Amazon. You should also go and follow D.X. Ferris on twitter right now because he is hilarious.
We also talk about South Park episodes with Bob from the Edmonton band Black Mastiff whose just wrapped a tour with Portland’s Red Fang and will be accompanying the Smalls on their cross Canada reunion tour. If you don’t know the Smalls then we don’t know what we’re going to do with you. Black Mastiff also recorded their latest album down in California with Kyuss’ John Garcia – talk about connections! Follow Black Mastiff on the twitter and here is the latest video from Black Mastiff for your listening enjoyment:
Then finally we have
D.X. Ferris’ mom on the show and she’s a real special lady Trent Wilke, part of Mostly Water Theatre steps up to help us out too! You can follow him on the twitter over on the twitter.
