Hardcore heavy metal is a state of mind. Loud, fast, aggressive and raw, it never fails to get you pumped to ride. Hell; it’ll get your pumped to do just about anything. Seeing it live however, is just a whole ‘nother animal. A massive release of energy. Insanely deafening power riffs. Heart attack-inducing double drums and bass. Above all, an ultimate camaraderie with your brethren in the pit.
… Until they knock you out.

Megadeth and Slayer are two of the greatest and heaviest metal bands of all-time. For them to share a bill throughout the American Carnage Tour this summer is nothing less than a metalhead’s wet dream. The combination is exhausting: Megadeth’s technical skill, diesel-fired guitar work and on-stage flair immediately give way to the harrowing, blood-draining raw power of Slayer, leaving you deeply rattled, strangely enlightened, and 100% scared for your  life.

Pat Moore once teamed with Slayer to make his pro model snowboard, because Pat knows: nothing will make you shred harder, faster, or longer than cranking up “War Ensemble” and pulsing some old-school death metal through your skull. ~~~
