Thrashers, bow down. Starting on Sept. 9, Slayer and Anthrax will tour for seven weeks for Death Angel. That's two of metal's Big Four on the same bill, if you're keeping score.

Slayer guitarist Kerry King says "fans will probably see the best package this year," noting that Anthrax bassist Frank Bello is "one of my best friends in the biz!!"

Death Angel's Mark Osegueda had this to offer:

"This will be Death Angel's first-ever tour with Slayer, something we've hungered for our entire career. And we will bring that hunger to the stage every night, so get there early because this will be a show not to be missed; from the first note of the night until the very last! Metal is alive, hungry, thriving, and coming for you!"
