SLAYER 'Christ Illusion' Bus Benches Removed From Fullerton - Aug. 7, 2006 All 17 of the SLAYER "Christ Illusion" bus benches scattered through the city of Fullerton, CA have been eliminated. "We were told that the city was getting so much attention through the press and online exposure, they just flat-out removed them," reads a statement from the band's publicist. "However, lots of Orange County, CA areas surrounding Fullerton where the benches still sit proud, sporting the cover art for SLAYER's 'Christ Illusion' album, due out tomorrow [August 8]." The locations of those benches are below:

Brea and Rolling Hills
Brookhurst and Commonwealth
Chapman and Ladera Vista
Commonwealth and Magnolia
Commonwealth and State College
Euclid and Commonwealth
Euclid and Fern
Commonwealth and Euclid
Imperial and Harbor
Imperial and Palm
Harbor and Bastanchury
Malvern and Adlena
Magnolia and Commonwealth
Orangethorpe and Euclid
Orangethorpe and Brookhurst
Placentia and Kimberly
State College and Orangethorpe

Check out a photo of one of the SLAYER bus benches at this location.

As previously reported, SLAYER's entire appearance on "The Henry Rollins Show" — including live performances of the songs "Cult" and "Disciple" (which didn't air on the original program), and an interview with all four members of the group — has been made available for viewing online at this location.

SLAYER is streaming "Christ Illusion" in its entirety on the band's official MySpace page.

"Christ Illusion" is SLAYER's first new studio album since 2001, and the first recorded by the band's original line-up — Kerry King (guitar), Tom Araya (bass, vocals), Jeff Hanneman (guitars), Dave Lombardo (drums) — since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss". "Christ Illusion" was produced by Josh Abraham and executive-produced by Rick Rubin.

Still playing that age-old 'anti religion' card eh guys? How original and rebellious. Seriously, think of something new to write about.

The cover art for Slayer's new album looks like a 10-year old drew it. Ah well, ugly cover for a stupid band.

why a bus bench? WHY A FUCKING BUS BENCH. That is really reaching out to the senior citizens and adults going to work. Slayer is still a great band and in a way it is a good idea but if I was in Slayer I would just say, isnt this fucking stupid.

God Hates Us All came out on 9/11 as the Twin Towers fell...

Tomorrow will see the release of Christ Illusion...

Somewhere at this very moment, the rudest, greediest, cheesiest, most arrogant cock in the music business, Greed Simmons, is stealing this idea and concocting the Official KI$$ Collectible Bus Bench and Matching Phone Booth and Electrical Transformer Box Cover Set.

Each set will retail for a bargain-basement $150,000. There will be a limited run on the sets, available for pre-order next week to brain-dead tools with too much money.

Seems trendy to bash Slayer these days.

Regardless, they still are and always will be one of the most important and influential heavy bands of all time.

Every album they have done is good. Some better than others of course. There were Slayer bashers when the old shit was being released just like today....but through it all, they are still around and doing what they do best.

It's the Christian/Republican stronghold of southern California...they knew what was going to happen to those benches! They paid a couple grand for the bench advertising and are getting a priceless amount from them being removed! I also like how the photo shows the notorious anti-homeless/anti-skateboarder benches that abound in the area...Nazi fucks!!!

it's about the music. Slayer influnced tons of metal bands. Kerry's beliefs (i dont agree with them) are just that. HIS BELIFES. As I have mine. But debating esoteric points of view defeats the whole purpose of this site. To be updated on the latest METAL music news. Benches? fine, they removed them. WHO FUCKING CARES???? I wanna know what the MUSIC is doing.

So the marketing campaign worked and because of that decided to pull them down?

It's just past midnight in the Central time zone....did any of you Slayer nerds go out to your local CD store to buy the new CD?

(No offense, I'd probably do it, too, if I were 10 years younger and a huge Slayer fan)

Is it worth my money? If not, should I buy "Seasons..."?

Why should Slayer stop doing what made them big? They just write about evil, religion and stuf like that. that's what they are and always have been. Changing that is not a good idea, I believe, Metallica also changed during the years and look what happened. This is just what Slayer is about, if you don't like it go listen to Disturbed

COMMENT | mmmh

i think it's time for slayer to stop that crap. in case they don't notice "the shock is over" satanic images or propaganda ain't shocking anymore since...well...EVERY FUCKING BAND outh there is "satanic" or "anty-system" (I mean, of course, anti-christian).

but who cares??????'


i think that even if they start singing about dolphins and sea food i'd buy their albums. as long as the great dave lombardo is behind the drums of course
