Slayer’s Manager Is “Not Sensing” A Reunion In The Future
The time is almost upon us. Slayer will be hanging up their bloodstained boots in just a matter of days, and let’s be honest, that sucks. The world is going to be a much quieter and less scary place without them, but in this current climate of reunions (everyone from My Chemical Romance to Rage Against The Machine in the past few weeks), is it really the end of Slayer?
The band’s longtime manager Rick Sales thinks so.
When asked about the prospect of a reunion further down the line by the, Rick told the Los Angeles Times, “I’m not sensing that at all… Let’s put the touring to bed. I’ve got a couple of ideas [for future projects], but we haven’t made any decisions.
“Right now, they’re preoccupied with the end, and I imagine it’s emotional. It’s emotional for me.”

He added: “They’ve been doing this for so long. They just said, ‘OK, this is enough.’”
“My analogy is Jerry Seinfeld, who had probably the biggest TV show when he went out on top. I respect the band for the decision. If you’re going to do it, this is the way.”
Speaking to MassLive earlier this month, Rick said that just because Slayer have made the decision to stop touring, it “doesn’t mean the end of the band.”
Slayer recently released the feature-length movie The Repentless Killogy, which is out now digitally and on Blu-Ray/DVD.
The band’s final two shows take place at The Forum in Los Angeles, California, on November 29 and 30.
