For this issue of Metal Hammer, we bid farewell to the legendary SLAYEEEERRRR! We ask metal’s brightest stars to choose their favourite Slayer track, and revisit the making of Reign In Blood with Tom Araya, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo, Rick Sales and more. We also bring you our end-of-year poll, counting down the very best 50 albums of 2018. Who took the Number One spot? We look back at an awesome year of metal with Immortal, Conjurer, A Perfect Circle, Ghost, Carpenter Brut, Watain and Rolo Tomassi. Elsewhere in the mag, we talk supernatural shenanigans with Slash, fangirling with Floor Jansen and the music business with Ben Bruce. We pop into the studio with Dream Theater, get utterly bewitched by Heilung and wonder WTF at Threatin. As if all this wasn’t enough to keep you busy, we’re throwing in a free 100-page Slayer book and a couple of huge posters. Phew.
