ABOUT SLAYER:  http://www.slayer.net
For more than three decades, Slayer’s onslaught has proven the band to be the supreme thrash-metal band on the planet, the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to. The two-time Grammy-winners have also accumulated an abundance of certified Gold Albums along with “Best…” awards from media outlets all over the world, including Kerrang!, SPIN, Metal Hammer, Revolver, and Esquire.  Throughout Slayer’s history, the band has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault, and, unlike many of its contemporaries who “commercialized” their sound, Slayer has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream.  Slayer’s founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for him since.  Paul Bostaph, who was Slayer’s drummer from ’94 – ’01, has rejoined bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King, and is back behind the kit.

In September 2015, Slayer released Repentless, the band’s 12th studio album, the first without Hanneman and first with producer Terry Date, to widespread rave reviews and the highest chart debut of the band’s career.  The band also teamed up with director BJ McDonnell for two high-concept and brutal music videos for the album’s “Repentless” and then for “You Against You.”

Exodus & Lost Society : Nosturi Helsinki Finland

March 26th, 2016

exodus_tuska_site_banner

The 19th of March 2016

NOSTURI HELSINKI FINLAND

Article and pics by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjala

When the legendary Bay Area thrash metal veterans visited Helsinki with their own headlining gig fronted by Rob Dukes and Paul Bostaph some years ago, there were hardly 300 or even less thrash metal maniacs having attended the show. Well some years have passed since then until when Exodus hit the Finnish shore with another headlining gig with the domestic thrash wonderkids Lost Society supporting them. The expectations of the number of the attendance were guessed in advance before the show, but having over 500 tickets sold in the pre-sale was beyond the expectation for sure. That was definitely awesome. However the Finnish young thrash patrol Lost Society gave another lesson of violence.

LOST SOCIETY

When arriving at the Nosturi club there was a huge line of the thrash metal maniacs waiting into the club. Lost Society had already kicked the maelstrom of intensive headbanging and a pure riffstorm. The band has relied on all kinds of lame of humor aspects in the past shows, but supporting slot for Exodus proved Lost Society is definitely a vicious and intensive and murderous live act. When abandoning all the worthless and needless hassling, just focusing on creating the total of riff thrash storm with the incredible headbanging at the stage, that gave the entire new meaning of the brutal performance for Lost Society. The four piece just proved to be one hell of a thrash metal war machine by sacrificing themselves at the stage and gave a lesson of the master guided riff playing. The set list consisted of the material off from the new album such as “I Am The Antidote” and of course the mandatory “Terror Hungry” is the essential one for the hyperfast thrash hymn.

Hollow Eyes

I Am the Antidote

EXODUS

When Lost Society’s intensive gig was over and the audience was still gasping for the air, the stage was prepared for Exodus’ tempo of thrash. The latest Exodus offering BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT is still amazingly intensive refreshing brilliant thrash piece of slab. Therefore it was expected to hear quite a few songs picked up from that 10th full length album. Yes indeed those new songs sounded damn catchy as well as brutal as “Body Harvest”, “Salt The Wounds”, and “Blood In Blood Out” were the part of the setlist. Not that surprising the classic debut album BONDED BY BLOOD played the biggest role in the night’s setlist. All in all six songs off from the classic debut album encouraged the crowd go utter insane and bezerk in the pit. The pit turned out to be a merciless and savage and time to time the whole floor was on fire when the insane thrashers crushed their sweating bodies against each other. It surely did help when Steve “Zetro” Souza’s commanded the pit go brutal as hell. But to be honest, Exodus sounded really tight and brutal. Tom Hunting’s clock tight drumming creates the essential part of the Exodus sound. His incredible way of blasting the drums along Jack Gibson’s crushing bass lines and the double guitar work by Kragen Lum and Lee Altus created the total crushing sounds of thrash by Exodus.  The five-piece is definitely in the vital strike and they can still deliver the tempo of the old school thrash metal at its best. “Toxic Waltz” has become one kind of hymn for pit rioters, when the opening riff cut the air, the pit turned an incredible huge, bodies were flying all over and when the final song “Strike Of The Beast” concluded the set with another chaotic pit storm.  Indeed Exodus stroke now back with the vengeance. Even though Gary Holt was now missing, he was busy with his duties with Slayer, Exodus still lives strong and the band still breathes metal more than well in 2016. It was definitely overwhelming and pleasure to see the packed venue on Saturday night in Helsinki. Above all the domestic young thrash guns Lost Society showed their skills  skills and they proved that they’re now ready to conquer the metal world. All in all it would be fabulous to see more often as many metal fans as today to attend upcoming metal shows in the future.

SLAYER Release New Video

March 17th, 2016

In Slayer’s song “You Against You,” vocalist Tom Araya screams “Your perfect world is ending this day, So what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.”  And so, from the very first frame of the band’s “You Against You” music video, the gore, the violence, the projectile-blood-spewing and the carnage begins and just never ends.

“You Against You” is the prequel to “Repentless,” Slayer’s brutal 2015 video filmed at an L.A. prison that has logged nearly 7.5 million YouTube views.  Like “Repentless,” “You Against You” was directed by BJ McDonnell, stars Jason Trost (“Hatchet III”) as Wyatt, the eyepatched rebel inmate, and tells the story of the circumstances that led to Wyatt’s erroneous arrest and imprisonment.

Slayer’s performance of “You Against You” was shot deep in the heart of California’s Mojave desert earlier this year in a graveyard of jets, airliners, and helicopters.

“After the ‘Repentless’ video,” said Slayer’s Tom Araya, “BJ delivers with ‘You Against You.’  Fu**ing awesome!!!!!”

Repentless, Slayer’s 12th studio album, was released on 9/11/15, making its career-highest debut on
Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, coming in at #4 and scanning 50,000 units.  The album also debuted in the Top 5 in the U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Finland, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Portugal, Czech, Greece and Sweden, and was the #2 best-selling album in the world on the United World Chart.  In addition, Repentless received spectacular press response – “Metal Album of the Year” (Guitar World), “…prime fu**ing Slayer…” (Metal Hammer), “…thrash redefined, upgraded and reborn, a return to the essence of who Slayer is.” (Houston Press)

Slayer is currently in the final weeks of its winter 2016 North American tour with Testament and Carcass supporting.  Remaining dates are below.

MARCH
17     Revolution Event Center, Boise, ID
19     The Paramount, Seattle, WA
20     Roseland Ballroom, Portland, OR
22     Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA
23     Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA
25     Rabobank Theatre, Bakersfield, CA

It is not too often that the 2500+ capacity MacEwan Hall gets completely sold out for Metal shows, but Slayer, who have performed at this same venue a few times before, managed to do just that on their most recent stop in Calgary, Alta. Slayer is riding high on what many people are saying is their best album in years (REPENTLESS [Nuclear Blast, 2015]) and the legions of Metal were out in force! Managing crowds and traffic flow is a complicated endeavor at the best of times and it was a bit of a struggle on Monday night.

SLAYER Release New Album And Video

September 11th, 2015

0e4ef0d5-6a47-41a6-b618-6683e64c4755

Today, September 11, 2015, Slayer’s long-awaited 12th studio album Repentless (Nuclear Blast), is released and available to fans.  Launching with glowing early reviews – “Metal Album of the Year” (Guitar World), “Slayer continues to reign” (Kerrang!), “as unrelenting as all of their 11 previous” (SPIN), “the sound of Slayer telling you that it still recognizes its essence” (New York Times), and “a potent release that is undeniably Slayer” (Loudwire), the band is showing they are, as the British daily The Guardian put it, “still the masters of this stuff.”

The first music video from Repentless, the title track, also makes its global premiere today

The video was shot late last month at the Sybil Brand Institute in East Los Angeles and is a grizzly depiction of what the Kerry King-created word means:
to feel no regret or remorse.  Slayer performed the song in the prison yard while a riot broke out, blood flowed in abundance, and inmates and prison guards were slaughtered.  Directed by BJ McDonnell and produced by Felissa Rose, the video features cameos by actors who have been part of some of the most iconic horror films ever made:  Danny Trejo (“Machete,” “From Dusk Till Dawn”), Tony Moran (“Halloween’s” Michael Myers, “American Poltergeist”), Derek Mears (“Predators,” “Friday the 13th”) Tyler Mane (“Halloween”) Jason Trost (“Hatchet III”),  Sean Whalen (“Men In Black,” “Halloween II”), and Vernon Wells (“Mad Max 2,” “Commando,” “Weird Science”).

This is McDonnell’s first stint directing a music video.  He directed the 2013 horror film “Hatchet III,” and his rich resume as a motion picture cameraman includes “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man” and “The Interview.”  For the “Repentless” video, McDonnell and Rose brought in stunt coordinator Nils Allen Stewart who is known for his work on films like “Planet of The Apes,” “Anger Management” and “Daredevil.”

Repentless was produced and mixed by Terry Date and recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.  The album is Slayer’s first release since 2009’s World Painted Blood, and features band members Tom Araya (vocals/bass), Kerry King (guitars), Paul Bostaph (drums), and Exodus/Slayer touring guitarist Gary Holt.

SLAYER shoots music video for new album’s title track “Repentless”

August 28th, 2015
SLAYER shoot music video for new album’s title track “Repentless
video features performances by a slew of iconic character actors!
Yesterday, in near 100-degree heat and high humidity, a riot broke out in the exercise yard of the Sybil Brand Institute, the women’s prison in East Los Angeles, where SLAYER shot the music video for the new track “Repentless.” In fact, whileSLAYER performed the track under that punishing sun over an eight-hour period, the “prisonersˮ had to stage a riot for somewhere north of twelve takes before director BJ McDonnell finally called it a wrap (images can be seen below). But that was all pretty much in keeping with McDonnell‘s brutal vision for the clip, a vision that many in the veteran cast and crew referred to as “more like something for a feature film than a rock band’s music video.ˮ
This is McDonnell’s first stint directing a music video.He directed the 2013 horror film Hatchet III, and his rich resume as a motion picture cameraman includes Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man and The Interview. ForSLAYER‘s “Repentless,” he and the video’s producer Felissa Rose pulled together a gang of actors and crew who have  been part of some of the most iconic horror films ever made: Derek Mears (Predators, Friday The 13th,Tyler Mane (Halloween), Jason Trost (Hatchet III), Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn), Tony Moran (Halloween‘s Michael Myers, American Poltergeist), Sean Whalen (Men In Black, Halloween II), andVernon Wells (Mad Max 2, Commando, Weird Science) all are featured inmates in the video. And if that wasn’t enough, McDonnell and Rose brought in stunt coordinator Nils Allen Stewart who is known for his work on films like Planet Of The Apes, Anger Management and Daredevil.
SLAYER‘s prison yard performance is just one facet of what promises to be a grizzly video. WhileMcDonnell and Rose are keeping full details about the video tightly under wraps until its premiere, it’s safe to say that there was a lot of blood spilled within those prison walls.

The date for the premiere of SLAYER‘s “Repentless” music video will be announced shortly.Repentless, SLAYER‘s 11th studio album, is due out on Septeber 11th via Nuclear Blast, and is already receiving some pretty amazing press:“Metal album of the yearˮGUITAR WORLDRepentless is prime fu**ing SLAYER, arguably their finest album since…if not ever, then it’s certainly among the best. Really, it’s that good.ˮMETAL HAMMER

Repentless is thrash redefined, upgraded and reborn…a return to the essence of who SLAYER is.ˮ– HOUSTON PRESS

Watch the video clip of the band talking about working with producer Terry Date as well as the video for “Repentless,” the clip discussing the promo video for “Chasing Death“ and the video for “When The Stillness Comes” on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel!

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Virginia

July 26th, 2015

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival

Jiffy Lube Live, Bristow, Va., July 24, 2015

Text and photos by Peter Atkinson

By the time the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival limped its way into Northern Virginia there wasn’t anything terribly festive about it. Indeed it felt more like epic fail than anything else, especially when one looked around the grounds of the unfortunately named Jiffy Lube Live and saw not only an empty lawn, but an empty third tier of “shed” seats, a mostly empty second tier and a front section that was maybe two-thirds full.

I felt bad for the main acts, Slayer and King Diamond, both of whom killed it. They certainly would have been better served by playing full theaters instead of desolate amphitheaters on this tour, especially given the rag-tag support cast that made up much of the rest of the bill.

SLAYER – REVEAL REPENTLESS ALBUM ARTWORK; TITLE TRACK TO GET DIGITAL GLOBAL RELEASE FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH!

June 16th, 2015
SLAYER - Repentless

SLAYER – Repentless

Today, SLAYER unveil the album artwork for their 11th studio album, Repentless, due out September 11, 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco in collaboration with the band’s Tom Araya and Kerry King.

“We had a number of submitted ideas for the cover artwork,“ said Araya. “And we felt Marcelo’s was the best. We made some suggestions and the result is an awesome album cover.“

The band also announces that the album’s title and first official track will be available digitally virtually everywhere (Amazon, iTunes, Google) around the globe this Friday, June 19.

“’Repentless’ is my Jeff tribute,“ said SLAYER’s Kerry King. “I call it the ‘HannemAnthem.’ It’s my perspective of Jeff’s perspective, it’s what I think…if Jeff wrote a song for himself “Repentless“ would be it.“

Repentless

Arrogance, violence, world in disarray

Dealing with insanity every fuckin’ day

I hate the life, hate the fame, hate the fuckin’ scene

Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity

Ain’t got the time, I don’t want anything from you

Feeding on my tolerance is all you fuckin’ do

No looking back, no regrets, no apologies

What you get is what you see

Live fast, on high

Repentless, let it ride

My songs relive the atrocities

Can’t take society any fuckin’ more

Intensity, anarchy, hatred amplified

Playing this shit is all that keeps me alive

I leave it all on the road living on the stage

This is my life where I kill it everyday

So take you shot, bottom’s up, this is no lie

I’ll be beating this guitar ’til the day I die

Live fast, on high

Repentless, let it ride

I hate the life, hate the fame, hate fuckin’ scene

Pissing match of egos, fuck their vanity

Ain’t got the time, I don’t want anything from you

Feeding on my tolerance is all you fuckin’ do

No looking back, no regrets, no apologies

What you get is what you see

We’re all killing ourselves a little more everyday

Live fast, on high

Repentless, let it ride
