Female Slayer Fans Become ‘Slaywhores’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Five metal-loving women are slaying music fans in New York with their Slayer tribute band, SlayWhore.

The band started putting pedal to the metal a few years ago when lead singer Joanne Filipone was gabbing about the trend of all-female tribute bands with her pals and wanted to form a tribute band to honor Slayer, a group she’s loved all her life.

She explains, “I said we should do ‘SlayWhore’ and our friends egged us on.”

Their first gig was in 2006 and slayed the crowd despite not being a perfect tribute.

She admits, “If we were a true Slayer tribute, the bassist would sing all the lyrics and we wouldn’t have a keyboardist doing all the hooks.”

Although Filipone doesn’t know if the real members of Slayer are aware of her band, she’s happy with the support she’s getting from music fans, such as a recent encounter with a group of guys who chanted, “SlayWhore! SlayWhore! Slaywhore!” as she walked down the street.
