Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd recalled the time he attended a Slayer concert during his latest appearance on Revolver’s Fan First and revealed that he had to leave the show to save his life.
As a member of Big Four alongside Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax, Slayer has greatly influenced the metal music genre. They have a devoted fanbase thanks to their iconic records that explore tricky themes such as organized crime, secret societies, murder, serial killers, torture, genocide, and politics.
Aside from their talents, the Slayer members are also known for their wild stage shows which have been defined as risky and dangerous by their fans. Nonetheless, this didn’t scare their dedicated fans, who continued attending the band’s concerts.
In his recent conversation, Brandon Boyd admitted that he too experienced an unforgettable moment during a Slayer concert at Whiskey A-Go-Go. The musician thought that he could get killed during the show. The reason behind his fear was probably Slayer’s audience’s violent and reckless behavior. He added that, as a Slayer fan, he shouldn’t have left the concert.
In Boyd’s words, he stated:
“That’s amazing, that’s actually a really great description of that band. I saw Slayer too at Whiskey A-Go-Go, and it was terrifying.
I was afraid for my life, I was with Mike Einziger from our band, and we watched like the first handful of songs, and we were like, ‘We gotta get out of here, we’re gonna die. I don’t wanna die at a Slayer concert.’
Which would make me a terrible Slayer fan, by the way. If you’re a real Slayer fan, you’re down to die at one of their shows.”
