Viral Video of the Day: Renaissance Fair Folk Band Cover Slayer at Jeff Hanneman’s Traffic Circle in Poland

Screen shot 2014-05-28 at 11.47.26 AMDoes it get more metal than Renaissance Fair folk musicians covering Slayer’s “Seasons in the Abyss” and “Raining Blood” at the “Jeff Hanneman’s Circle Pit” traffic circle in Jaworzno, Poland? Probably, but we’re having a hard time of thinking of how at the moment.

The musicians had the following to say about the performance caught in the video below.

The task wasn’t easy – the traffic was quite heavy and we had difficulties even with getting to the traffic circle. The noise of cars passing by drowned out the sound of our instruments. For that reason we needed to record the sound once again.

The whole event was a huge attraction to the local people. In addition, it caused some small problems in the traffic and municipal police arriving. Fortunately it ended up with a verbal warning.

Now we have a great remembrance of that moment. It’s our small tribute to the one of the greatest metal bands. SLAYER!!!

Greetings to all Slayer fans and those who on that day were on the circle pit!
