Slayer’s farewell tour is finally in its last leg ever — which they’re calling the Final Campaign — and the heavy-metal legends kicked off the month-long run in Asheville, North Carolina on Saturday, November 2nd, with an explosive performance that showed the thrash OGs are ready to burn it all down in fiery, hit-filled style. The 20-song set saw the quartet span the range of their entire career, including the title cut off their debut album, Show No Mercy, which they haven’t pulled out on stage since 2007.

Several fans captured the action in high-quality amateur footage, including Slayer’s performances of “Repentless,” “Raining Blood,” “South of Heaven,” “Mandatory Suicide” and “War Ensemble” as you can see here. In addition to playing the hits, Slayer have been adding in some deeper cuts like “Stain of Mind” from 1998 LP  Diabolus in Musica, widely considered their riskiest and most experimental album of the lot. Reign in Blood‘s “Jesus Saves” also reared its thrashing head, showing up on the set list for the first time since the kickoff of final tour way back in May of 2018.
