Slayer is one of if not the most iconic Thrash Metal band that has ever existed. Starting out in the Orange County area as a humble cover band in high school, they grew to be powerhouses of the metal world. Since their rise, they continued to go full force with recording and touring, even after the passing of Jeff Hanneman, their founding guitarist. Finally after 3 and a half decades, they decided to do one last World Tour before hanging it up. They played some epic shows in Michigan, and recently a video surfaced showing them shred faces in Grand Rapids back in 1991.

The performance came in the middle of their set during their "Touring The Abyss" Tour live at Club Eastbrook on February 1st in 1991, now known as the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids. The song you get to check out is "Dead Skin Mask" off the album Season of the Abyss:

One person in the comment section of the video made a great point, which I think we can all relate to today:
