The founders of this increasingly recognized "holiday" have gone all cerebral on our asses this year, assembling a panel of academically-inclined experts--including Steve Waksman, author of This Ain't the Summer of Love: Conflict and Crossover in Heavy Metal and Punk --to analyze the impact of what a holiday oriented around Tom Araya and company really means to culture in general.

Slayer play Seattle's WaMu Theater with Megadeth this September 3. Tickets over here.
