Over the course of the band's 25-year career, the thrash-metal pioneers of Slayer have been accused of inspiring murder and necrophilia (check out www.elysemarie.org). They've covered "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" for the Less than Zero movie soundtrack. And just last year they won a Grammy for the song "Eyes of the Insane," off their latest album, Christ Illusion. Wednesday kicks off the quartet's second national tour this year, this time with Marilyn Manson...

After a four-year absence, Marilyn Manson has returned to the public eye in the video for "Heart-Shaped Glasses" by porking his barely legal girlfriend in a rain of blood. Considering Manson's affinity for shock value, it was a grand reentry into the rock world. That kind of flashy, trashy imagery may prevent Manson from ever being taken seriously as an artist, but his followers are still out there...

Slayer has posted its new track, "The Final Six", on the band's MySpace page. The song is featured on the re-release of Slayer's "Christ Illusion" album, which is due on July 24. The limited-edition set will also contain an alternate version of "Black Serenade". The reissue marks the band's first collaboration with new label home Columbia Records; Slayer left Warner Bros. when longtime producer Rick Rubin jumped ship to head Columbia back in May...

Guitarist Kerry King can't even remember the last time his band — the iconic speed-metal maelstrom that is Slayer — played a gig it didn't close out. That's because, with more than 25 years in the business, Slayer have been a headlining act for quite some time. When Slayer take the stage, no one else follows. Or at least that's the way things were before the band decided to team up with Marilyn Manson.

"Marilyn Manson puts on a great show and his fans are very loyal as our fans are.  Like Slayer, Manson has had his share of controversy, and like Slayer, he's never backed down from that.  And also like Slayer, Manson is outspoken and has taken a lot of grief for being that way.  While there are similarities between us, there are differences too, and we think that the combination of those factors will make for a very interesting, possibly surprising, but definitely very entertaining show for both Manson fans and Slayer fans."        -- Tom Araya, Slayer
