Slayer

If you're a fan of Slayer and have an Android phone, you're in luck. Sony Music has released the Slayer app for Android, and it's really good. And loud. And evil. You'll find everything you ever wanted to know about Slayer at your fingertips, including show information (with a quick link to buy tickets), the full discography, news, weblinks, and a fanwall for commenting and leaving photos. On the multimedia side, you have a well rounded list of tracks that play right from the app, as well as plenty of concert footage in the form of mobile optimized video. 

Besides being a feast for the senses, the Slayer app has some social media functions as well.  Not all death metal fans are anti-social, so the app gives quick ways to share via SMS or Twitter, and is integrated with Foursquare for concert venue check-ins.

Even if you're not a fan of Slayer -- and you really, really should be -- you have to appreciate the polish and thought that went into this one.  It's done very well and would be a very nice format for other apps of this nature to follow.  If you are a fan, the download link and a bunch of screenshots are after the break.

scottbeamer says:

Well whomever they are, apparently Jerry Hildenbrand is a fan. And/or it's a slow new app day....

deckoff says:

One of the biggest metal acts for the las 30 years :) Today it is all about quality, not quantity = Slayer + official Google docs apps :) (+ Ubuntu Natty coming tomorrow)

jelly roll says:

+1 for Natty Narwhal! I have been counting down with the ubuntu countdown widget. It's great to have fellow linux users.

Would like to see more apps like this. Need a BLS app with 4square to keep track of the society dwellers.

JH, no big deal or anything, but Slayer are really considered a thrash metal band and not generally accepted as death metal. Araya doesn't do the growled DM vocals. Many fans of both thrash and death do like Slayer however.

I think it's awesome if you are a fan.

jonnyl says:

Ugh, metal. *shudders* And people say rap is bad.

Genaro12543 says:

Metal takes alot of talent still. It comes down to if the music is for you. Just cuz you dont like it doesnt mean its bad music thats dumb

Volbeat says:

Ill refrain from commenting on this too much, but have you ever heard the quote "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt"?

Anyway, Every Slayer fan should have this app! \m/

Hypnotosov says:

It's bands like Linkin Park that give metal a bad rap.
