Jeff Hanneman passes away

It is with a heavy heart I deliver this news: Jeff Hanneman, founding member of Slayer and one of the best shredders in thrash metal history, passed away today from liver failure. I can only assume this is directly related to the spider bite he suffered a few years ago. This is a devastating loss for the heavy metal world. He co-wrote classic Slayer songs like “Raining Blood” and “Angel of Death.” I held hope that he would join the band as soon as he got better. This is just a shock.

Rest in piece Jeff Hanneman. We love you. Thank you for the music.
