Slayer frontman Tom Araya spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about how the heavy metal band has managed to stick together since the early ’80s. “It’s still the same, I don’t feel any older,” Araya said. “Our audience definitely has changed, though. I guess 25 years ago I wasn’t selling books at my kid’s book fair either, but 25 years ago I wasn’t married! I can’t say that the thought [of moving on from Slayer] hasn’t crossed my mind, but everything takes its course, and you have to allow everything to take its course. I don’t know how much longer the course has for us, but everything has to take its turn.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
