Over Slayer‘s career, the band has made available to its fans some pretty cool swag, from an ugly Christmas sweater to BMX’s “Cradle to Grave” four-bike collection, a Slayer Snow Globe where blood-red particles fall, a series of Van’s footwear including one with blood-splatters, the Slayer Pinball Rocks app, the Rockhard Limited Edition biker helmet, and the one-of-a-kind vehicle inspired by Slayer and designed by Scion.  In this video, the band members talk about their favourites.

On May 2nd, Slayer will kick off Leg Five: North America for its Final World Tour.  Lamb of God, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse will support on all of these 16 dates.  Leg Six will see Slayer saying farewell to its fans for the last time across Europe, from early June to early August.  Ticket information for all dates is available at slayer.net
