Slayer is one of those bands that inspires ridiculous extreme loyalty in it's fans. Slayer fans don't say, "Slayer". They scream it! They've always been one of my favorite bands to see live, and they just bring a simple performance experience to their fans. It's just a brutal assault on you, without any frills or silliness.
Tom Araya has a really laid-back, happy demeanor when he's talking with the crowd, making sure everyone is having a good time, and helping each other out, so everyone can have a good time.
