(Inter)National Day of Slayer

Metal is spreading worldwide, and with it, Burzum:

Originally inspired by the National Day of Prayer that religious groups created to draw attention to their beliefs, the National Day of Slayer was thought to be a holiday on June 6, 2006 — that’s 6/6/06 — but now it has grown.

Thanks to support and enjoyment around the world, the National Day of Slayer is now the INTER-National Day of Slayer, and it happens every year on June 6 starting at hour six. On this day, metalheads worldwide stop the pointless activities of a boring world and listen to Slayer.

International Day of Slayer is bigger than one nation, or even one band. It’s a celebration of metal music through one of its most articulate spokesbands. It’s also revelry in the spirit that makes metal great. So on June 6, stop everything… and listen to SLAYER!

You may find it odd to see this on a website ostensibly devoted to Burzum, but there is method in this madness. Slayer is one of the most important Metal bands that has ever existed, if not for their more recent releases, then for masterpieces such as Haunting the Chapel, Hell Awaits, and Reign in Blood. Burzum is an extension of the concepts originally explored by bands like Slayer, thus, if even one person becomes a fan as a result of the National Day of Slayer, they will already be well on the way to discovering Burzum, and the truths therein.
