SLAYER played their last-ever show last night, then wished a fond farewell to the sold-out crowd at the Forum in their hometown of Los Angeles.

You can watch fan-shot video of the moment below.

Appropriately, the final song the legendary metal group played was a fiery "Angel of Death." Afterwards, band members Kerry King, Tom Araya, Paul Bostaph and Gary Holt basked in the love and "Slayer! Slayer! Slayer" chants from the crowd for a few minutes. Finally, Araya offered a brief but emotionally charged farewell speech.

Thank you. Thank you very much. I want to thank you for sharing your time with us. Time is precious. So I thank you for sharing that time with us, thank you. I’m gonna miss you guys. But the most important thing I want to thank you for being a part of my life, thank you. Good night. You guys be safe.”
