SLAYER: Entire DOWNLOAD Festival Performance Available
SLAYER's entire performance at this year's Download festival, which took place June 8-10 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, England, has been posted at Google Video.
Celebrating its 26th year together, the always-uncompromising SLAYER was recently named "Best Live Band" in SPIN's 2006 Readers' Poll, and picked up their first Grammy Award in February for "Best Metal Performance." Their latest album, "Christ Illusion" — which debuted at #5 on Billboard's album chart — takes on the U.S. government about the War in Iraq, prompting one newspaper to speculate, "If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, he undoubtedly would be listening to SLAYER."
SLAYER and MARILYN MANSON will co-headline a North American major-market summer tour beginning on July 25 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
