Slayer Not for Dummies

(PR) [we reported on this a few weeks ago but here is an official press release from the Slayer camp about it.] In a 1992 Slayer profile, Esquire magazine wrote, "Five out of five kids who kill love Slayer." Times change. According to a report just last month in the UK's national daily newspaper The Independent, a study reveals that "death metal and thrash bands such as Slayer and Slipknot produce the music of choice for today's brightest youngsters."

The report is based on an online survey conducted with students at Great Britain's National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth, representing the top five percent of the country's students. The report further states that "this intellectual elite often [finds] themselves facing situations and issues not encountered by less able students." Researchers associated with the study admitted their surprise that "intelligent" genres traditionally associated with the precociously bright, such as classical and jazz, were the least popular.

For all the honor students in Australia and here in North America, Slayer kicks off their first Australian concert tour in five years on April 21, and will co-headline a North American summer tour with Marilyn Manson beginning July 25.
