29th May 2010. Slayer. Birmingham. Academy.

A bit wary about going to this as I had fond memories of seeing Slayer in the 80’s

I needn’t have worried. The band still had it. The newer material that I had not heard also sounded very good. One of my two mates that went to this gig after about 15 minutes turned and asked “are you moshing i’ve got to go in”. Two of us declined. As the set got more intense my other mate very politely said “actually i’ve got to go in too (mosh). A cool moment.

The set was very strong. Brave too to cut Raining Blood and bleed in into the lesser known Anti-Christ. The cult following lapped in up.

Rate 9 out of 10.
