Slayer Rocks in Their Scions

At the NYE Automotive Group, we pride ourselves on offering vehicles for every taste. But what kind of car would members of one of the heaviest of all heavy metal bands drive?

For thrash rock veterans Slayer, it’s a Scion tC. Or more specifically, the all-new Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC, which makes its world debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas from Nov. 4-7, 2014.

Slayer — known as one of the “Big Four” top thrash metal bands in the world — has inspired the sports coupe’s aggressive exterior of Slayer album artwork on the hood and skeletal art all around. Inside, the new raging Scion is a multimedia power machine of amps, speaker towers, a custom sound mixer, and a 32-inch monitor for playback. There are Slayer logos on the headrests and Marshall amplifier art on the seats, reverse access doors, a dagger-styled emergency brake and skull-shaped shifter, and stacks of speakers in the back.

The SEMA show was not open to the general public, but there will be plenty of opportunities to see the Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC at upcoming Scion events. Check out the Gear Gods preview of the epic auto at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSFkSOxmWhs

The band’s affiliation with Scion doesn’t end there. There’s a brand-new “Scion x Slayer Driven” video online featuring the adventures of Slayer lead vocalist/ bassist Tom Araya and lead guitarist Kerry King tooling around in their Scion tCs. They take a trip to the recording studio to work on a new track, and then Araya heads off to the ESP Guitar Company to pick up a new custom-made bass while King visits his warehouse full of snakes.

Their new song “When the Stillness Comes,” written for Scion, is previewed in the video. You can watch the Slayer metal makers in action at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoShkvJsPHw

NYE Automotive knows not everyone rocks as hard as Slayer, so we have Scion vehicles that offer a more relaxed ride as well as a head-banging drive. Stop by today for a test drive of a Scion that is your own style.
