It has only been eight months since Slayer last dropped a tonne of unprincipled decibels on the faithful minions of Calgary; eight months since the world's most grisly band pledged to return to the thrashing masses that bought-out the February show in less than a day.

My God, can't that damn alarm clock shut up! What time is it? 9:47 a.m. Is it Monday today? Feels like Monday. Man my head hurts--I think I've got class in ten minutes.

"On Wednesday night, me and two of my friends were at the Den, celebrating the end of the first day of U of C 101.
