Slayer are a thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, U.S., formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hannemann and Kerry King.

One of the highly-revered ‘big four’ of the thrash metal genre, alongside their contemporaries Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax, Slayer have always been defined by two thing; the ferocity and speed with which they play, and the deeply dark nature of their thematic approach and lyricism, where pretty much nothing has been off limits - everything from Satanism to necrophilia has cropped up over the course of their ten records to date. The group is currently comprised of King on guitar, bass-playing frontman Tom Araya, drummer Paul Bostaph and guitarist Gary Holt; founding guitar player Hannemann passed away last year. The band made their name with their third album, “Reign in Blood”, in 1986; that record’s kind-of title track “Raining Blood” is effectively their signature song.

They’ve continued to both entertain, influence and provoke in equal measure ever since; from (albeit inadvertently) managing to release a record entitled “God Hates Us All” on September 11th, 2001 to routinely being accused of Nazi sympathies, Slayer have certainly earned more than their fair share of notoriety, but it’s perhaps in terms of their huge influence on the genre of metal in general that they’ll be best remembered over time; everybody from System of a Down to Slipknot to Darkthrone have attributed some of their style to Slayer over the years, proving their towering stature within the metal community.

Live reviews

Slayer is frighteningly intense live. You could either get your skull cracked open in a mosh pit or from the sheer amplitude of Kerry King’s guitar. But that’s the thrill of attending a Slayer concert.

It is impossible to be anything other than fully engaged at a Slayer show with red lights of doom blaring on the stage, pentagrams and World War II imagery depicted in the background, and stacks of guitar amps blaring in your face at full volume all while trying to avoid getting beat to a pulp in a mosh pit. Slayer’s performance is fast and loud with their songs relying on fast tremolo picking, booming double bass pedals pounding away at the bass drums, and dueling guitars playing chaotic melodies in irregular scales creating dissonant sounds.

Slayer has a unique style of performing by playing at rapidly fast tempos and tuning their guitars to very low pitches getting deeper, heavier sounds. Slayer has gained critical acclaim already being nominated for five grammys, and are considered one of the most influential metal bands having directly inspired the genres of death metal and black metal. The singer, Tom Araya, adds much charisma to Slayer’s style with his death-like screams, and the violent imagery depicted in Slayer’s lyrics puts Slayer in a hardcore level of their own.

It is unpredictable what one might see at a Slayer concert. You might see a fan carving an upside down cross in their skin or you might see someone in a wheelchair crowd surfing, as I saw at my first Slayer concert. One thing you can predict is a mind-blowing thrill of a ride.

Slayer Still Stay True to Roots

Slayer still know how to deliver the goods and deliver them well in a world where so much music has become formulaic. The band performed older and newer numbers such as Angel of Death, South of Heaven and Reign in Blood at a high octane level of energy, all against a backdrop of upside down crosses. During the song Angel of Death, the backdrop also displayed a variation on the Heineken beer logo, showing and paying homage to the late guitar player Jeff Hanneman who passed away last year. What I found most memorable was the pit area, seemingly a sea of fans moshing constantly throughout the set and making it appear as if the floor itself were moving!

Opening for Slayer were thrash and groove metal bands Exodus and Suicidal Tendencies. Both set the stage and night for a great fusion of different yet similar music genres and sub genres. Gary Holt, veteran ax man for Exodus, did double duty churning out guitar solos and riffs for both them and in his gig with Slayer at the end of the night, proof positive that he has truly hit the ground running with the latter band! A grand night out as always with them!

What a crap-hole of a venue. Google maps kept sending us to the VIP entrance (which of course costs more $$$). Parking was a nightmare, it rained and was muddy. Everything was monetized, down to the height of the chairs you were allowed to bring in. Water was allowed in sealed containers only (unopened with the little ring attached, yeah this was wasteful). Wow -- $16 beers, no thanks. $45 per tee-shirt in the merch, even for the opening bands. You have to pay to get closer to the band. Pit tickets were upwards of $200+, what a joke. The cameras and projection screens weren't even turned on until Lamb of God. Beers of fishing quality were being sold for $10 a can, and the good beers were $16 each. My wife got a shot that was $15. Sound was ok. Cannibal Corpse played for a whole 20 minutes. We were up in the lawn-grass area and there was fresh manure spread on the hillside, wafting in our direction. Ironic due to the crappy quality of our experience.

Can't wait for Maryland Deathfest 2019 and Devastation on the Nation 2019-- Two shows that I spent a lot less money on and get a lot more trve cvlt metal out of.

They rocked!!! I saw them in Bakersfield where it was standing room only, and the pit was awesome. That being said, if you're not down for that, you can still stand (mostly) in peace. It was LOUD. Which is AWESOME. But for the songs I didn't know, I put in earplugs to save my hearing just a little. Defnitly at bring at least a pair (I lost mine in the moshpit and had to use beer stained, trampled, earplugs). And the show was great, they keep the intensity going the whole way through. Even my dad, who didn't know a single song, enjoyed the concert just from the intensity in the pit and onstage. Tom engaged the crowd a little, but for the most part it was all about the music. I would've liked an encore, but eh my ears were dead anyways. Overall great show, I can't wait to see them again.

I saw each of the final tour legs that hit Ohio and each was amazingly awesome! The sounds was great. The viewing was great (we had floor), it’s sad for me to think this is the end but I feel like they may do festivals and a one off here or there. I will surely attend! I drag my husband to these shows and he is not a Fuckin Slayer fan at all, but he even admitted these final tours are pretty awesome even though once Fuckin Slayer comes on, it just sounds like one giant song to him until we leave. Lol I disagree, but he did not grow up with them the same as me. I will be a die hard Fuckin Slayer to the end and can’t wait to see what is in store for them in the future! Final Leg Tour Number 9 maybe???? Regardless, I will be there! Fuckin Slaaaaaayyyerrrr!!!!

Slayer came out on stage completely apathetic. Like they couldn't wait to get out of our state! I've been a life long fan since 84' and this was not a great performance. Yes they sounded good stage pyrotechnic were ok,but they played with no emotion or heart at all. Tom got all pissed off over something in the mosh pit. Stopped playing for at least 9 minutes in middle of set. Then cussed out the crowd told off Albuquerque then played 4 more songs cut set short no oncour just walked off stage. What assholes!! People pay a lot of money. For him to do that is bull shot!!don't plan to ever pay for another Slayer show again!

There's few words that can be said about this band and this show that would do them justice.

Slayer is an amazing band overall and I've been listening to them since I was a teenager. I was never disappointed about the quality of their albums.

The show was simply sensational! Besides the sweet music played by the band the stage props were really great.

The fire show was another incredible piece, I really loved how some of the flames were forming a pentagram.

Their band logo burning while they played Angel of Death was really great!

I'm never good with endings, but all I can say is that I loved it!

adrian-coroi’s profile image

I know that saying "that was fire!" is a pretty common and basic way of praising something, but considering the actual fire on stage and sparks of energy throughout the show, there really can't be a better way to describe it. They put on one hell of a show. You can see Tom's great sincerity towards the audience in his talks between some songs. They really looked like they enjoyed themselves, and of course the audience did as well. Whole band played great, hard, and LOUD.


(Be prepared to hear that often)

Loud heavy fast sweaty long hair and brilliant time!

I've been a fan of slayer since about 1988 and it was great to go to a gig where everyone was not there filming it instead just taking in the brutal power of Slayer!

All the classics were played with a few new songs off the new record "Repentless" you can't argue when a band like Slayer roll into town turn up no encores and smash through 20 brutally fast thrash classics. I left minus a phone in my sweat soaked t-shirt and absolutely loved this gig.

SLAYER reuniting for 2024 Louder Than Life and Riot Fest

slayer_featured.jpg, Jimmy Hubbard

This doesn't even feel real. But it is. Slayer are reuniting this year.

The thrash titans, who famously retired in 2019, have been announced as the headliners of the 2024 Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky, and Riot Fest in Chicago.

This is profoundly surprising news on multiple levels. Slayer embarked on their drawn-out farewell tour in 2019, and have made no indication that they ever planned to reform.

In fact, just earlier this month, guitarist Kerry King — who just launched his long-awaited, post-Slayer solo band — told Rolling Stone that he was almost positive he and Slayer co-founder Tom Araya would never get the band back together — at least not for many years.

"I can pretty much a hundred percent say no because I have a new outlet, and it's not Slayer, but it sounds like Slayer," King said of a potential Slayer reunion.

Clearly, the tables have turned. Slayer will be headlining Riot Fest on Sunday September 22nd and day two of Louder Than Life on Friday September 27th.

"Nothing compares to the 90 minutes when we're on stage playing live, sharing that intense energy with our fans," Araya said in a press release. "And to be honest, we have missed that."

King added his own enthusiastic message: "Have I missed playing live? Absolutely. Slayer means a lot to our fans; they mean a lot to us. It will be five years since we have seen them."

Check out the announcements below.

The lineup for this iteration of Slayer will be same configuration who put the band to rest in 2019: co-founders Araya and King, guitarist Gary Holt (also of Exodus) and longtime drummer Paul Bostaph.

Slayer to reunite to play Louder Than Life 2024 alongside Slipknot, Korn, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Disturbed, Evanescence, Five Finger Death Punch and many more

Slayer are officially back, and they are playing one of the biggest festival lineups of 2024!

Slayer on stage

Louder Than Life have announced an absolutely stacked lineup for 2024, and it's packing one of this year's biggest surprises: Slayer are reuniting to headline this year's festival!

The thrash metal titans - who seemingly disbanded for good in 2019 - will headline Louder Than Life 2024 alongside Slipknot , Motley Crue and Korn when the festival touches down at the Kentucky Exposition Center from September 26-29.

Joining those four headliners on this year's bill are the likes of Evanescence, Disturbed, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Halestorm, Gojira, Tom Morello, Anthrax, Mastodon, Architects , Lorna Shore, Body Count, Spiritbox, Jinjer, Poppy and many, many more.

"We're thrilled to announce that Slayer will be reuniting for an earth-shattering performance at Louder Than Life,” comments Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents, the organisers of the festival. ”I was at their last show at The Forum in 2019 and have been working since then to bring them back to the Louder stage! With over 140 bands on five stages, we’re celebrating our 10th Louder Than Life with the biggest lineup yet!”

Tickets for Louder Than Life 2024 are on sale now from their official website . See the full lineup for this year's huge festival below.

As well as LTL, the thrash heroes will additionally be playing at this year's Riot Fest in Chicago on September 22. 

The Louder Than Life 2024 lineup

The news of Slayer's return will shock most fans, with guitarist Kerry King stating earlier this very month that he hadn't heard from frontman Tom Araya since the band hung up their instruments after their 'final' show at the LA Forum on November 30, 2019.

King, who kicked off his new project this year, told Rolling Stone that he'd had no contact whatsoever with his former bandmate. "Not even a text," he insisted. "Not even an email. I’ve talked to everybody else from the band on the phone, text, or email. If Tom hit me up, I’d probably respond. It probably depends on what he hit me up for, but I don’t wish him dead at this moment."

Kerry King's new project - bannered under his own name - will feature Slayer bandmate Paul Bostaph on drums, ex- Machine Head  guitairst Phil Demmel, Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders and Death Angel singer Mark Osegueda. The band's debut album, From Hell I Rise , will arrive on May 17.

"Will Slayer tour again? I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen," King told Rolling Stone . "Could Slayer play a show again? I’m sure there’s a scenario." It seems that scenario has unfolded sooner than expected.

Thrash metal icons Slayer have announced a second North American date on their much-publicised “final” world tour, first announced on 22 January. The new dates have literally been added due to popular demand as with more than half the original tour dates have already either completely sold out or are likely to do so shortly.

Set to kick off on Thursday, 26 July at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire, the tour will travel to 20 cities over about five weeks, culminating at San Jose’s SAP Center on August 26. Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Testament And Napalm Death will accompany the band on all dates. The general ticket on-sale for most dates begins this Friday, 9 March 9 at 10 am local times. Very limited Slayer onstage + meet-and-greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available. Log on to Slayer’s website for all ticket and package purchasing information.

A second North American leg for this tour had been considered to take place at some point down the line, but within 48 hours of the initial January 26 ticket on sale date, that all changed.

“We were blown away by the speed of sales for the final run,” said Rick Franks, president of touring for Live Nation, one of the tour’s promoters. “Thirty-six years later and Slayer are bigger than ever before.”

After announcing their retirement in 2019 followed by a world tour, Slayer announced their return in 2024. The group announced that they will perform at the Riot Fest in Chicago next September and at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville in the same month. Alongside Tom Araya (Bass and vocals) and Kerry King (Guitar), the final members of the band Paul Bostaph (Drums) and Gary Holt (Guitar) will also come back for these shows.

“Nothing compares to the 90 minutes when we’re on stage playing live, sharing that intense energy with our fans and to be honest, we have missed that,” Tom Araya said.

Kerry King also talked about the return, saying: “Have I missed playing live? Absolutely. Slayer means a lot to our fans. They mean a lot to us. It will be five years since we have seen them.”

The surprising announcement came a few weeks after the guitarist Kerry King said that he didn’t speak to Araya since the band came to an end. But it doesn’t seem like Slayer will tour around the world at least this year since Kerry King now has a solo band and has many scheduled tour dates in 2024.

DAVID ELLEFSON On SLAYER Reuniting For Festival Appearances: 'Farewells Are Just A Temporary Goodbye'

In a new interview with Greg Prato of Ultimate Guitar , former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson was asked for his opinion on the recent announcement that SLAYER was reuniting for three festival appearances this September and October. He said: "It's inevitable. Look, I don't know their reason for it, other than I can't sit still. I can't sit home and not go play. At some point, this is what you're on the planet to do."

He continued: "They're my friends, so I'm happy for any successes they have. If they're worn out and they want to quit, I'm happy for that, too. But if they're rested up now and getting ready to go play — go play.

"There's all this controversy around PANTERA [reforming with a new lineup and going back on the road], and as I found out with KINGS OF THRASH [ Ellefson 's project with ex- MEGADETH guitarist Jeff Young celebrating that band's early material], fans still want to hear these songs. Regardless of what you call it, people still want to go hear those songs. Farewells are just a temporary goodbye."

Back in June 2018, Ellefson was asked by Inquisitr about SLAYER 's decision to call it quits after completing one final world tour. He said: "Look, groups retire for all kinds of different reasons. Either they've just lost interest, their heart just isn't into it anymore, maybe it's a health issue, for who knows what reasons. And I don't know why SLAYER 's hanging it up; I've not talked to Tom [ Araya , SLAYER bassist/vocalist] or Kerry [ King , SLAYER guitarist] about it to know. It's great to see them have this big last hurrah of success. I'd like to think they're not gone forever, on some level, y'know what I mean? Many farewell tours have made for a hell of a reunion tour later."

He continued: "But they've also lost their dear friend Jeff Hanneman [late SLAYER guitarist], and he was a key writer for SLAYER . Me and Dave [ Mustaine , MEGADETH leader] have been through that; past members have passed away. We've been through a lot of lineup changes and stuff, and when lineup changes happen, it's always kind of a shot in the dark whether you're going to be able to capture lightning twice and recreate the magic. Some of our lineups did and some of them didn't.

"Again, a lot of different reasons for doing it," he added. "Now we're making 50-year-olds' decisions, we're not making 20- and 30-year-olds' decisions, which are fight and kill at all cost when you're younger. When you get a little bit older, for all of us, we look back at the roller coaster ride we've been on; some days you go, 'Do I want to get back on that roller coaster again or not?' It's like skydiving. 'I've jumped a couple of times and I've survived. Do I want to really go do it again?' Sometimes you count your blessings; sometimes it's okay to leave Vegas and leave a little on the table."

Five years after SLAYER played the last concert of what was being billed as the band's farewell tour and just weeks after Kerry unveiled the details of his solo project, King and his longtime bandmates announced that they will play at the Aftershock , Riot Fest and Louder Than Life festivals.

When Kerry 's solo project was first announced, King told Rolling Stone that he was almost positive he and Tom would never resurrect the band. "I can pretty much a hundred percent say no because I have a new outlet, and it's not SLAYER , but it sounds like SLAYER ," King said of a potential SLAYER reunion.

The lineup for SLAYER 's comeback will be the same as the one which last toured in 2019: Araya and King , along with guitarist Gary Holt (also of EXODUS ) and longtime drummer Paul Bostaph .

Days after SLAYER 's reunion was announced, Tom Araya 's wife wrote on social media that she "harassed him for over a year" before he "agreed finally" to play more shows with the band. "We shared that news with SLAYER 's awesome managers and they did the rest!" she explained. "So yes without Tom it wouldn't have happened.. without me BUGGING HIM it wouldn't have happened."

SLAYER played the final show of its farewell tour in November 2019 at the Forum in Los Angeles.

Slayer’s Kerry King wants to record his second solo album this year: “I’ve got everything in place to make that happen now”

Slayer guitarist Kerry King has revealed that he wants to record his second solo album this year.

The 59-year-old, who’ll release his solo debut From Hell I Rise this Friday (May 17), has told The Aquarian that he wants to return to the recording studio the moment he finishes touring with his solo band in 2024.

“I said to Paul [Bostaph, drummer for Slayer and King’s solo band], ‘I want to go immediately into the studio and bang out record two afterward,’” King explained.

“When you’re fresh off the tour and sharp, you can do a super quick performance because we’ll all be rehearsed on it. That’s the plan.

The guitarist continued: “I’ve got everything in place to make that happen now. We’re going to be on tour and I can work on lyrics for pieces that aren’t finished yet. Hopefully everything will be done by the time the tour’s done.”

King has also spoken about plans for a followup in an exclusive conversation with Metal Hammer , where he revealed, “A lot of songs for the next record are already in demo phases.”

He continued: “At this point in my career and in my life, I wanna get the record out, do the first tour for however long that takes us, but once that’s done Paul and I want to get back into the studio and get record two out of the way.

“I’m-old school, which is why we did an album. But I’ve gotta tell ya, there’s nothing that says albums are the path of the future. Maybe we put out four songs, go on tour. Then another four songs, another tour. I’m not sure. I’m planning on doing a second record and we’ll see what the public demands when that happens.”

King officially unveiled his solo project in February , following years of rumours and speculation .

The band was revealed as being rounded out by Bostaph, vocalist Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), co-guitarist Phil Demmel (ex-Machine Head) and bassist Kyle Sanders (ex-Hellyeah).

King’s band made their live debut on May 7 and have announced an extensive tour spanning Europe and North America, which wraps up at the end of August.

Get tickets via the guitarist’s website .

The announcement of King’s long-anticipated solo band was confounded by the return of Slayer in late February.

The thrash metal heavies, who disbanded in 2019 following a worldwide farewell tour, unexpectedly announced their reunion for a short string of US festivals later this year.

In the new issue of Metal Hammer , where he’s the cover star, King stated that the timing of the Slayer announcement was out of his hands.

“Yes, it was not my favourite timing,” the guitarist said.

“In Kerry King world, would I have wished that that announcement had taken place a few months later? Absolutely. But that was out of my hands.

“The announcement came, and people got all excited or all pained about it, but hopefully when I release another song, the attention will switch back to my record.”

Slayer’s Final Tour: See Exclusive All-Access Photos

By Kory Grow

Slayer have always strived to be the hardest, fastest and toughest live band around. Now they’re calling it quits with a final world tour.  After kicking things off in San Diego last week, they welcomed Rolling Stone backstage, onstage and in the pit to document all the mayhem of the second date of the trek, which took place at Irvine, California’s FivePoint Amphitheatre.

We were able to witness performances by their opening bands, which included Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament; the excitement of the fans; Slayer’s pre-show backstage rituals; and the intensity on their faces during the gig. The band played a career-spanning set list at the gig, including the fan favorites “Angel of Death, “Raining Blood,” “South of Heaven” and “War Ensemble,” among many others, as well as a few surprises, like Divine Intervention ‘s “Dittohead” and Seasons in the Abyss’  “Blood Red.” Needless to say, it whipped the audience into a frenzy. Scroll through the following photos to see the carnage they wrought.

The Littlest Headbanger

slayer on tour

Fans of all generations showed up early to catch a metal marathon that included Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament – four bands brave enough to open for hardline Slayer fans.

Anthrax Heat Things Up

slayer on tour

One of the bands supporting Slayer on the tour is Anthrax, another member of the so-called “Big Four of Thrash Metal,” which, in addition to Slayer, includes Metallica and Megadeth. Anthrax have toured with Slayer numerous times over the years, notably on the Clash of the Titans tour  and later on the American Carnage and European Carnage tours, in addition to the Big Four shows. Here, frontman Joey Belladonna invites fans to get “Caught in a Mosh.”

Anthrax Cool Off

After their set, Anthrax guitarists Jon Donais and Scott Ian and drummer Charlie Benante head backstage to towel off after whipping fans into a howling fury.

A Dangerous Meeting

Train in Blood

slayer on tour

Before the show, King and guitarist Gary Holt meet up backstage to run through some of the songs and get their blood pumping. The fact that they do so in a pale, red room might be the most Slayer thing ever.

Kerry King Wrings His Guitar’s Neck

slayer on tour

King, who is covered in tribal tattoos, just like his guitar, spends some of the time before the show running through his solos, which requires playing high up on the instrument’s neck almost as if he’s getting ready to strangle it.

The Rhythm Kings

slayer on tour

Slayer bassist-singer Tom Araya, erstwhile Testament, Exodus and White Zombie drummer John Tempesta, and Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph hang out outside of Lamb of God’s dressing room before the big show. The three of them are responsible for some of the most skull-rattling rhythms in metal.

Slayer, Ready to Reign

slayer on tour

The four members of Slayer – Bostaph, Holt, Araya and King – get together just before showtime in their stage gear, which includes camo shorts for Bostaph, a battle vest for Holt, leather pants for Araya and, of course, chains for King.

Stairway to Hell

Lest anyone trips on their way to the stage, the steps leading up to it feature the band’s logo and a Satanic pentagram in day-glo white and neon.

No More Photos Please

Relentless, Repenteless

slayer on tour

In Irvine, California, Slayer opened the show with the title track of their most recent album, Repentless . It was the band’s first LP without founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who died in 2013, and first with his replacement, Gary Holt, who also plays in Exodus.

Watch the Throne

A backstage view of what Bostaph sees every night, looking out from behind his drum stool. The drummer, who played with the band in the Nineties and early 2000s after founding drummer Dave Lombardo quit, re-joined the band in 2013 after Lombardo exited the band over a contract dispute.

Tom Araya Finds His Happy Place

With a fog around him and perspiration pouring off him, Araya looks content as he plays bass during a break from vocals.

Slayer and the Fog

King, Araya and Holt make their way through a smoky mist during one of the songs.

King not only plays the band’s technically demanding guitar parts, he also does so while headbanging. In this shot, you can see the toll that takes on his mile-long goatee.

Caught in a Mosh

slayer on tour

Attending a Slayer show is not for the faint of heart – now imagine getting in a mosh pit when the band is onstage. Here’s a look at the carnage that ensues once Slayer find their groove.

The Aftermath

slayer on tour

Irvine, California’s FivePoint Amphitheatre can contain about 12,000 Slayer fans – even when they can’t contain themselves. Here’s a glimpse of what was left on the field after the band left the stage.

How to Watch New Episodes of 'Demon Slayer' Each Week From Anywhere

Get immersed in the Hashira Training Arc that pits the slayers against Muzan.

slayer on tour

  • Though Kourtnee hasn't won any journalism awards yet, she's been a Netflix streaming subscriber since 2012 and knows the magic of its hidden codes.


Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the anime series based on Koyoharu Gotoge's popular manga of the same name, is back on the small screen. The story follows siblings Tanjiro and his sister Nezuko, the sole survivors of a demon attack on their family. The incident transforms Nezuko into a demon, and while Tanjiro is bent on avenging his family's deaths, he's also consumed with finding a cure for his younger sister's condition. The fantasy series has returned with a fresh storyline and higher stakes this season.

Tanjiro really went through it in the movie Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -- To the Hashira Training, in which he killed Urami and Hantengu, but he thought his sister died in all the fighting. Wounded but relieved, he learned that Tamayo had good news: The Twelve Kizuki demon blood can cure humans.

In the Hashira Training arc in season 4, the wicked demon king King Muzan is coming for Nezuko, hoping to devour her to become immortal. To prepare for his unwelcome arrival, the Hashira are training the corps for another dangerous showdown, and Tanjiro will get to sharpen his combat skills. Fans will also get to see Sanemi and Giyu work together, a dynamic that's sure to entertain.
