There are very few bands that take me back to the 80s and my awkward teenage haircut more than Slayer.

It was very early 2014. I recall I’d just been introduced to the wonderful world of Causa Sui and El Paraiso Records, the home of the Danish four-piece which is run by Causa Sui’s Jonas Munk and Jakob Skott.
