Musician, Guitarist. Hanneman co-founded the thrash metal band Slayer in 1981, after auditioning for lead guitarist in a band. He approached Kerry King, who was trying out for the same band, when the two began playing songs together and decided to form their own band. Although they released their first album in 1983 with 'Show No Mercy', their breakthrough came in 1986 with the album 'Reign in Blood'. Among some of the albums he wrote or co-wrote songs for were 'Hell Awaits' (1985), 'South Of Heaven' (1988), 'Seasons In The Abyss' (1990), 'Divine Intervention' (1994), 'Christ Illusion' (2006) and 'World Painted Blood' (2009). Hanneman, who nearly died in 2011 from necrotizing fasciitis, which he contracted from a spider bite, died from liver failure. (bio by: Louis Mata)
