CRUSTY CLIP OF THE WEEK: SLAYER - 'HELL AWAITS' LIVE AT STUDIO 54 '85



Every single Wednesday without fail, your hosts post a suitably stale video clip that we think needs to be revisited. Click here for more Crusty Clips. Got a clip you think we should post? Send it to crustcake@gmail.com.

Yes, THAT Studio 54.

For one night, flowing love became flowing hate, as Slayer(rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!), Exodus, and Venom descended upon the former boogie wonderland to record the seminal VHS Ultimate Revenge for Disco. Such a bill nowadays would be considered a cash grab, but then it was like trading "Disco Duck" for foie gras. People, especially dudes hip to thrash then, still yelled "Disco Sucks!" loudly, and it wouldn't be for another 10 years that folks could ironically enjoy it again. But who cares about fads? Slayer are eternal.

There are two truths in life: Only Death is Real, and "Hell Awaits." Enjoy.
