Slayer Easter Egg - Song Eggs Fer Good Ole Slayer

Well on the album Hell Awaits, in the first song Hell Awaits, play the first minute backwards and you hear what the noise was saying. Join us, chanted over and over. Probably the only Slayer song that sounds half normal backwards. (hehe)

On the album Divine Intervention, 213 is a song name, it's also the apartment of Jeffery Dhamer whom the song is also about.

One member of the band collects WWII items and has alot of references to it in the music.

The first 1000 or so releases of the Seasons in the Abyss cd had 2 extra tracks that were cut after that.

Before the Reign in Blood track on Reign in Blood is a song (or portion of a song) that suposedly was mistakenly left on the recording.

Another funny one (not sure if it's an egg)
The CD Divine Intervention was made to point out how music is being blamed for crimes. On the cover are pics of articles (names missing but it's obvious what the article is for) from the Beavis and Butthead bit, one for Metallica, Kurt, a Rapper, and others. The very album was later blamed for such an incident, the irony.

SLAYER ==> Satan Laughing As You Eternally Rot On Divine Intervention during the beginning of Killing Fields, you can hear either Jeff or Kerry burp. There is also a synchronization between Seasons in the Abyss and a part in Fantasia. It's not as long and involved as Pink Floyd's Darkside of the Moon and the Wizard of Oz, but it's still cool. Fast forward to the part in Fantasia where Satan summons the ghosts. After 5 seconds, start Seasons in the Abyss (the song). There are a lot of things that sync up: 1. Bass drum hits as Satan spreads his wings. 2. One of the guitars breaks into a riff when Satan points. 3. Clean arpeggio starts as the bats begin to fly. 4. Symbol crashes when first ghost flies through gallows. 5. Demons dance in sync with the guitars. 6. When the song goes, "Close your eyes, look deep in yourself..." Satan closes his eyes and looks down. There is bunch of other crap that I don't remember offhand. Slayer could've used this part of the film to make a video. (They probably should've. You never see Slayer videos on MTV) And, by the way, I don't sit around listening to Slayer and watching Disney films. I saw this on the Internet somewhere, and my sister happens to have Fantasia. So, I tried it and it works.

Slayer are DEFINATELY not nazis nor nazi sympathisers. Jeff Henneman's father fought in World War 2, his brother fought in Vietnam, he took thier stories and wrote WAR ENSEMBLE from 'Seasons In The Abyss' from them, he also wrote 'Angel Of Death' from the album of the same name about Dr. Joseph Mengele, the Doctor in Auschwitz who commited acts of human biomedical experiments on half dead (and some human) 'patients'.

Also, after the backwards message before the music, it is spoken, "Welcome Back..." The part before "Raining Blood" the song is actually just a CD dupe error, it is the breakdown verse & ending of the previous song "Postmortem" What are the tracks cut after the first 1000 on Seasons??

The boys from Slayer are not Nazis. In fact Jeff Hanneman is Jewish and wrote "Angel of Death" to describe the atrocities that occured in concentration camps.

Jeff Hanneman's father fought in WW2. He brought home a lot of Nazi memorabilia, and that was what interested Jeff. Some other WW2 songs of his are "SS-3" (from Divine Intervention), and "Behind the crooked cross" (from South of Heaven).

The member who collects WW2 stuff is giitarist Jeff Hanneman. His most noteable song is Angel Of Death, which is terribly cool. There's others, but I can't remember them :-P Up the Irons!

'The part before "Raining Blood" the song is actually just a CD dupe error, it is the breakdown verse & ending of the previous song "Postmortem".' This is true - they corrected it for their 20th anniversary boxset: Soundtrack to the Apocalypse. It has the two tracks, Postmortem and Raining Blood, one after the other, but the track changes as the sound effects and drums for Raining Blood come in, while the last note of Postmortem can still be heard ringing.

Tom Araya wrote "Dead Skin Mask" About Ed Gein. Kerry King played guitar solos on songs by: Beastie Boys, Pantera & Sum 41 (also appeared in the video for the song "What we're all about"!) I don't know for how long on the tour, but when I saw slayer on my last, 21st, b-day Dave Lombardo was the drummer. Kerry King has signature guitars by BC Rich (two models of flying V's (One with tribal design and 1 without) & the warlock (I know of the one w/the tribal design)
