VENUE: Big Four

By Adriana Malinowska

On Saturday a music lover's dream came true when 5 huge bands in their own right came together to put on a fantastic show at the Big Four in Calgary, Canada. To usher the end of an era in the run-up to their final set of shows as a band, Slayer decided to enlist the help of a few giants in the Rock/Metal genre, namely Behemoth, TestamentAnthrax and Lamb of God for a mammoth show.

Although I was not able to capture the show in its entirety, it was clear from the beer-laden floors and gleeful pandemonium that this was a show attendees would not be forgetting in a hurry!

When it came to the time Slayer were ready to play after being expertly warmed up by the four bands that proceeded them, Guitarist Gary Holt was certainly not shy on stage, using every opportunity to construct mind-blowing solos that whipped the crowd into a frenzy. Despite many years in the business, Slayer demonstrated once again how fantastic they are and why they have so many die-hard fans. 
 
With the understanding amongst many that this was their last set of shows, it was certainly a difficult thought to come to terms with, whilst trying to enjoy and savour every last second of their time on stage. If you were unable to attend this fantastic merging of rock Gods, we have a gallery below along with setlists for each band that you can feast your eyes on. Enjoy!
