Here is a thing that some of you might have been waiting for, maybe: Rob Zombie and Slayer are going on tour together across the U.S. Here is something else that the same some of you may have hoped for: The 12-date tour is called “Hell On Earth.” And it keeps getting better:
"You can expect no less than “hell on earth,”” Slayer guitarist Kerry King said in an interview with Spin magazine. "Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag..."
Added Zombie: "Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises. Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell."
