Fans in attendance at Revolver Magazine’s Golden Gods Awards were treated to a huge surprise when Slayer opened the awards show with a three-song set that also included the global premiere of “Implode,” the band’s first new song in five years.
Shortly after the band’s performance, “Implode” was made available as a free download at Slayer.net. The live version of “Implode” from the Golden Gods Awards last night can be streamed from YouTube.
