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 shes 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 wouldnt have a keyboardist doing all the hooks.
Although Filipone doesnt know if the real members of Slayer are aware of her band, shes happy with the support shes 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.
