And that’s a wrap. RIP Slayer. For 37 years these guys have been annihilating stages across the planet. They were one of the first metal bands that I ever listened to way back in high school. The first song I ever heard was Raining Blood on Guitar Hero 3, and their sound helped guide me to many different bands and influenced my guitar playing style for a long time as well (it still comes out every once in a while). As of tonight, I have seen all four of the original Big Four bands of thrash metal. That’s a story that I’ll be telling years from now. And for a band as old as these guys, they sounded fucking phenomenal. The guitars were massive and the vocals sounded as good as the day they were recorded. And at the end when Tom walked across the stage simply looking the crowd over, and then said his goodbyes to the fans I could see the sadness, and at the same time happiness, on his face. At that moment one of the most evil sounding bands to ever exist almost made me cry. This is one of those shows that I will never forget for as long as I live. •

Why can’t I look you in the eye
Say goodbye get it over with.
A little white lie In disguise with your every kiss.
I’ll stay another night
Then deny that I’ll always miss
Breathing you in
Breathing you out •
Hands down my favorite band discovery at Echo Park Rising this year was Spare Parts for Broken Hearts — who tore the roof off of a sandwich shop. If you have the opportunity to see them, go! I hope to see them again...but maybe in a proper venue next time! 💔 #echoparkrising#sparepartsforbrokenhearts
