Jeff Hanneman's Circle Pit

Well, he was snubbed by the Grammys this year, but late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman did at least get a traffic circle named for him in Jaworzno, Poland.

According to CentrumDruku3D, the traffic circle will officially be known Jeff Hanneman's Circle Pit for one year. The rebranding was made possible by Art-Com Ltd., who won a charity auction during Wielkiej Orkiestry Swiatecznej Pomocy (Great Christmas Aid Orchestra).

Hanneman passed away on May 2, 2013 from alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver.

A video report on the unveiling can be viewed below:

Hopefully cars driving through there fling out of the circle and into the crowds.

how were the germans able to conquer the poles so easily during world war 2??? the germans marched in backwards and the poles thought they were leaving!

anonymous 2/7/2014 4:25:17 PM

the anti slayer guys is like "guys we should so make the circle blood on the dance floor pit" fcking grow a pair and listen to real music

to the guy trying to make this awesomeness about nationalism - chuj ci w dupe, lol jeff hanneman died last year - this is a tribute. get the fck over it. if dime died last year, maybe they'd name it after him. and as for behemoth....shit, there are a TON of amazing polish bands....why not name it decapitated? or vader? whatever. stfu and enjoy the fact that you are from an amazing country that would do something this fckin cool. as a pole, i'm pretty proud. also, lighten the fck up :P


anonymous 2/7/2014 5:10:33 PM

Who the fck is Behemoth? and would they even be around if it wasn't for Slayer and Hanneman?..Nuff said...


anonymous 2/7/2014 8:44:01 PM

decapitated hasn't been good since the first 3 albums and when vitek was killed in the car accident and vader hasn't been good since 97 so fck Hanneman and slimebag darrell and let's do tribute for Daniel Nosek and metal's own hero Nathan Gale

to all the bashers of jeff fck u im from canada and aint heard of one of the other bands mentioned so i guess slayer was world wide and the others obviously not, not knocking them but your musics reach goes along way and slayer was everywhere and the others were nobodies!!!


anonymous 2/8/2014 5:08:35 AM

Seriously a tribute to some kid that didn't know how to crowd surf and a redneck who didn't understand the reasons for Pantera breaking up, despite claiming to be a huge fan of the band....hope your ancestors were beatd by germans, then at least there would be a reason for you being such a fck-nugget.


anonymous 2/8/2014 8:15:33 AM

@mummified_circuitry I think u studied in the usa - the dumbest country of all. The germans didn`t counquer the poles. They tried but they failed as they were smite to the ground.

this article got 28,000 likes on Facebook? What the heck, did ABC link to this or something?


anonymous 2/8/2014 11:04:52 AM

No what Mummified Circuitry did is called Racism to all that think Polish jokes are a cool thing. I don't know why you think it's anything else! I'm proud of my Heritage and if people think it's OK to do this you can fck OFF. Say that crap to me at your crappy party and I'd put a hurtin on your Racist little Face. So now you know Polish jokes ARE NOT OK!


anonymous 2/8/2014 3:51:15 PM

How did the Polish mother teach her son which way to put his underwear on? Yellow in the front, Brown in the back! polish metal sucks ass


anonymous 2/8/2014 9:02:09 PM

Who said shittiest guitarist in metal ? You should be ashamed. Yeah Behemoth kicks ass but without groups like Slayer and Venom you probably wouldn't have Behemoth.

First I got excited, then I realized Nergal survived...


anonymous 2/12/2014 12:34:27 PM

"Wielkiej Orkiestry Swiatecznej Pomocy" It's actually "Wielka Orkiestra Swiatecznej Pomocy" - a small mistake, but you might consider correcting that. :)


anonymous 2/13/2014 8:16:17 AM

what the fck is wrong with some of you people?? wether you like slayer or not..this isn't about them it's about a guy who was in slayer getting a tribute to him!!
