Ukrainian Zoo Puts Up Statue Of Slayer’s Tom Araya

Apparently the XII Months Zoo in Demidiv, Ukraine has randomly put up a statue of Slayer’s Tom Araya. On top of that, the statue also comes complete with a huge Slayer logo and some lyrics from “Dead Skin Mask.“

The following said about that (translated from Russian):

“Dear friends, we have finally finished our discussions and alterations, and can say – a sculpture by Tom Araya in our park is completed and submitted for your critical inspection. I can not tell you how hard it was and how much we argued about the accuracy of, say, shape the beard 🙂 or Tom guitar.

I put the results of our work on the official website of Tom, I have heard that he is now back from Chile and the rest before the European tour – perhaps peep us. At least mileyshaya Sandra Araya (wife) told me that she liked. . God forbid. . . I also told her how things were arguing about any details on the sculpture and even joked that thankfully there that at the concert – and if the sculpture called, for example, Tom on the beach. . . .

In general, write (those who are interested) as we have got.
and I am pleased that Ukraine has paid attention to the whole army (mullions) Slayer fans and Tom. Take a look at his website 🙂 and all approval

Propaganda, war ensemble, Burial to the BE ;)”

Volume 1 Of Official Slayer Comic Book Series To Be Released In January

As previously reported, writer Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) and artist Guiu Vilanova (Twilight Zone,etc.) teamed up to create a three part comic series based on Slayer’s “Repentless” videos. Now, it has been revealed that the first volume will be released on January 25, via Dark Horse Comics. Prorders can be found HERE. You can see the cover, which was designed by Glenn Fabry, below. A variant cover from Eric Powell is also being readied as well. Schnepp said of the following:

“It’s been my honor to chronicle the bloody road trip that is the Slayer comic series from Dark Horse/Nuclear Blast. Using the band’s music and lyrics from their three decades of albums, while crossing over and through the Repentless music videos by BJ McDonnell, I have woven a tale of betrayal, hate, perspective, loyalty, family, and murder that will need to be experienced through the comic books’ pages.”
