Slayer in theaters?! I can't think of many things that are more badass than that! Other than seeing the band live, of course.
Well, if you missed the band on their Farewell Tour, you can catch the next best thing, as Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph - along with Trafalgar Releasing, Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions, have announced the new short narrative film and concert, Slayer: The Repentless Killogy, is coming to theaters worldwide for a one-night event on November 6th. Due to be screened in over 1,500 theaters around the world.
Tickets will be on sale starting October 9th at http://www.slayer.film.
Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution. The Repentless Killogy film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos - "You Against You", "Repentless", and "Pride In Prejudice" - for Slayer's final studio album Repentless (2015).
"When we set out to do these initial three videos," said McDonnell, "our intention was to continue the saga of Slayer and Wyatt at some point down the line. But this is the band's final album and world tour so this story, the three videos and the Repentless live concert at The Forum, is a perfect way to wrap up. This is the end of the monsters."
Uncompromising and unmissable, part one of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy begins with the powerful short narrative film that brings together the music of Slayer and the grisly story they wanted to tell. Opening with the trilogy of music videos assembled as one chronological storyline, we are introduced to the narrative's main character Wyatt, a former neo-Nazi associated with a gang known as "The Hand Brotherhood", whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place.
The Repentless Killogy stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series: Jason Trost (Beats Of Rage, Hatchet III) as Wyatt, Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Til Dawn), Richard Speight ("Band Of Brothers", "Supernatural"), Derek Mears ("Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "Swamp Thing"), Jessica Pimentel ("Orange Is The New Black"), Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween II), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Sharknado 4), and Sean Whalen (Twister, The People Under The Stairs).
Part two of The Repentless Killogy features Slayer's entire live set performed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5th, 2017 and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including Metallica, Foo Fighters, and Michael Jackson. Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band's career, Slayer performs fan-favourite’s including "South Of Heaven", "War Ensemble", "Mandatory Suicide", "Dead Skin Mask", "Raining Blood" and "Angel Of Death".
Following the global theatrical premiere, on November 8th, the film will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages.
