DISTURBED, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, LAMB OF GOD, ALTER BRIDGE Members Salute SLAYER (Video)

LAMB OF GOD's Willie Adler and John Campbell, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's Tom Morello, DISTURBED's David Draiman, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's Jesse Leach and ALTER BRIDGE's Mark Tremonti are among the artists in the rock and metal community who are featured in Consequence Of Sound 's new video paying respect to SLAYER, which will kick off the final leg of its farewell tour tonight (Saturday, November 2) in Asheville, North Carolina.

"They're so good at what they do, masters of the art," Draiman said. "So dark, so unapologetic in their subject matter, in creating art, and in their execution. They really defined the more hardcore end of thrash for generations to come."

"The Final Campaign", the seventh leg of SLAYER's farewell world tour, will see the band taking its goodbye bow at the Los Angeles Forum on November 30. Accompanying SLAYER for this last ride are PRIMUS, MINISTRY and PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS performing a vulgar display of PANTERA, who will support on all dates.

SLAYER's final world tour began on May 10, 2018 with the band's intention to play as many places as possible, to make it easy for the fans to see one last SLAYER show and say goodbye. By the time the 18-month trek wraps on November 30, the band will have completed seven tour legs plus a series of one-off major summer festivals, performing more than 140 shows in 30 countries and 40 U.S. states.

SLAYER's final world tour has been a wild ride. Three bus drivers, four truck drivers, and a crew of 32 have traveled all over the world to set the stage for this farewell. At most shows, SLAYER's pyro expert set off 160 pounds of propane and 10 liters of 99% isopropyl alcohol, prompting the Phoenix New Times reviewer to comment on the "eyebrow-singeing pyrotechnics that could be felt even 10 rows behind the pit."
