Slayer is an American thrash metal band formed in Huntington Park, California in 1981 by Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King with Tom Araya and Dave Lombardo. Before recording original music, the band was playing covers of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest at Southern California parties and clubs. Soon after, with no recording budget, Slayer recorded Show No Mercy, their first studio album. With their fast and aggressive sound, violent lyrics and evil imagery, Slayer gained popularity amongst young metal heads looking for a sound that embodied their energy. With twelve albums and over 20 million records sold, Slayer are considered one of the greatest metal bands in history and to this day resonate with the same intensity.
Supreme has worked with Slayer on a collection for Fall 2016. The collection consists of an M-65 Jacket, Coaches Jacket, Sweater, Waffle Thermal, Hooded Sweatshirt, Crewneck, Sweatpants, four graphic T-Shirts and a 5-Panel Hat.
