Default (Inter)National Day of SLAYER! 6/6/2009


Celebrate this anywhere. A great call for metal unity:

Originally inspired by the National Day of Prayer that religious groups created to draw attention to their beliefs, the National Day of Slayer was thought to be a holiday on June 6, 2006 -- that's 6/6/06 -- but now it has grown.

Thanks to support and enjoyment around the world, the National Day of Slayer is now the INTER-National Day of Slayer, and it happens every year on June 6 starting at hour six. On this day, metalheads worldwide stop the pointless activities of a boring world and listen to Slayer.

International Day of Slayer is bigger than one nation, or even one band. It's a celebration of metal music through one of its most articulate spokesbands. It's also revelry in the spirit that makes metal great. So on June 6, stop everything... and listen to SLAYER!

[I know I'll be listening to Hell Awaits with comrades as many times as I can muster that day.]

Because most people can rally around SLAYER somehow. They are a seminal act with established classics; a gateway for many, and a band who has yet to manage to completely embarrass itself with its later output. National Day of METALLICA lacks the same ring and fails to define metal properly. National Day of DARKTHRONE is too limiting.

A more mundane and secondary reason is that SLAYER loosely rhymes with PRAYER depending on the dialect.
