Slayer - Seasons In The Abyss

Slayer Reflect On “Seasons In The Abyss” Video Turning 25


When Slayer‘s “Seasons In The Abyss” video first premiered back in the early 90’s, there wasn’t anything else quite like it. Shot at some iconic landmarks in Egypt, the band’s Tom Araya and Kerry King have now reflected on the experience in honor of the video’s 25th anniversary. At one point, Araya recalls almost being robbed by a local extra, having been tricked into a horse ride that led him away from the set:

“I’m just thinking, ‘Fuck, I don’t have any money, man; I’m wearing leather pants.’ They wouldn’t take me back unless I gave them something. Eventually they realized we didn’t have any money and brought us back. A dollar bill is like a thousand dollars there, and they just wanted something. That was the last time I did anything with the extras.”
