There's another huge metal tour to feast on in early 2016: Slayer are hitting the road with fellow legends Testament and Carcass. Even without Dave Lombardo (who's now in a punk band) and Jeff Hanneman (RIP) (and despite certain teenagers thinking that they're lame), Slayer still rip and this is still an exciting lineup of three very different but equally awesome bands.

The tour hits the NYC-area for a Port Chester show at Capitol Theatre on March 2. Tickets for that show go on sale Saturday (12/5) at 10 AM, but first there's a BrooklynVegan presale starting Friday (12/4) at 10 AM. Check back here Friday morning for the password.
