SLAYER's KING, LOMBARDO Diss CELTIC FROST, METALLICA During 'That Metal Show' Appearance

November 4, 2009

SLAYER's Kerry King and Dave Lombardo reviewed random CDs — including LPs from CELTIC FROST, METALLICA, SLIPKNOT, MARILYN MANSON and NIRVANA — during a recent appearance on VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show". Watch the segment below.

SLAYER was forced to postpone its "Canadian Carnage" tour with MEGADETH, which was due to begin on November 8. In addition, the band has cancelled its appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", which had been set for this Wednesday, November 4. More information will be released shortly regarding the rescheduling of the Canadian dates, as well as the "Kimmel" appearance.

SLAYER's Tom Araya is currently under the care of a specialist for a back injury, thought to be related to his on-stage activity, and the physician has ordered an immediate surgical procedure, which was to take place in Texas yesterday (Tuesday, November 3) morning.

"What is foremost in our minds right now is that Tom do whatever he needs to to get this taken care of," said King. "While all four of us are disappointed that we won't be able to see through all of our commitments set for the next few weeks, the most important thing is Tom's health. We thank the fans in Canada and here in L.A., the MEGADETH camp, and everyone associated with 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' for their understanding. We look forward to seeing you all soon."

SLAYER's Kerry King, Jeff Hanneman and Dave Lombardo are looking forward to meeting their fans at a previously announced in-store appearance this Wednesday, November 4 at 3:30 p.m. at the Hot Topic store located at the Hollywood and Highland complex.

SLAYER's "World Painted Blood" was released yesterday, November 3.
