Titans of thrash, Slayer, will rage into Austin for final tour in June

Decades ago, the brutally aggressive noise of Slayer helped define and shape the genre of thrash metal. Now, after almost 37 years, the band members will lay down their axes, but not before one last tour to say goodbye to their fans.
