Slayer played two NYC-area shows after Bonnaroo, released new song “Repentless” (stream, pics, setlist)

The veteran metal act played fan favorites from the lengthy career, including “Hell Awaits,” “Chemical Warfare,” “Die By The Sword,” “Seasons in the Abyss,” “Raining Blood,” and “Hate Worldwide” among others. They opened the show with “World Painted Blood” and closed it with a two-song encore of fan favorites, “South of Heaven” and “Angel of Death.”

This tour is a ‘must-see’ for any Slayer fan. The energy in the Paramount was electric, and the enthusiasm of those in attendance unquenchable. Without a doubt, Slayer has proven an underground metal band from the early days of thrash can indeed gain the mainstream recognition they greatly deserve. [National Rock Review]

Slayer have been on a tour that just hit two major festivals, Bonnaroo and Amnesia Rockfest, and in between they squeezed in two NYC-area shows. They happened at Long Island’s Paramount in Huntington, NY on June 16 and 17. We’ve got pictures of the first night.

Slayer return to the area later this summer on the Rockstar Mayhem Fest tour with King Diamond, Code Orange and more. It hits PNC Bank Arts Center on July 21 and Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on July 26. Tickets for both are still available.

These shows are ahead of their first album in six years, Repentless, which comes out on 9/11 via Nuclear Blast. Since we last spoke, they revealed the tracklist and a stream of the title track.

Check that out, with more pictures and the setlist from The Paramount, and their updated list of tour dates, below…
