FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SLAYER MASTERPIECE, “REIGN IN BLOOD,” TO BE CORNERSTONE OF NEW DVD

Slayer’s 2004 Summer Touring Schedule Includes Ozzfest, Slipknot and Judas Priest Dates

Slayer devotees, rejoice! For the first time in the band’s long career, fans will be able to see the original Slayer line-up performing an entire concert live on DVD when the band releases Reign In Blood Live: Still Reigning on September 28, 2004. The DVD will have an approximate 75-minute running time and will retail for $14.98.

On Reign In Blood: Still Reigning, the original members of Slayer - Tom Araya (vocals, bass), guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Dave Lombardo (who permanently rejoined the band in 2003) - will perform in its entirety Reign In Blood, the 28-minute, 1986 classic considered to this day the pinnacle album of its genre.

Reign in Blood is our signature record, and if people think that it helped set the path for that genre of music, that’s great,” said Araya. “It’s a record that means a lot to all of us in the band - it was our first record for a major label, and our first record with Rick Rubin who gave it unconditional support.”

Reign In Blood: Still Reigning will be directed by Dean Karr (Iron Maiden's "Rock in Rio, the groundbreaking "Sweet Dreams" for Marilyn Manson), and is set to be shot this Sunday, July 11 at the Civic Center in Augusta, ME. Ten cameras, including three hand-held mini-DVs, will capture Slayer throughout the day and evening, filming an abundance of footage and interviews shot backstage, on the band’s tour bus, and live on stage.

In an effort to revisit the look and feel of the time, the band will have a special “Reign In Blood” stage backdrop, and has recreated some of the original stage banners from the mid-80’s Reign In Blood-era tour dates, which incorporate the Slayer eagle and the controversial upside-down crosses that are part of the lighting rig. And some special on-stage surprises are planned for the DVD.

“If what we’re planning for the final 45-seconds of the song ‘Raining Blood’ looks half as cool as we hope it will,” added guitarist King, “the kids will be blown away. And we’ll probably have to replace all of our gear!”

Named the “Best Live Band Ever” by Revolver magazine and “Best Band” in that magazine’s 2004 “Readers’ Poll,” Slayer remains the heaviest, the fastest, and the band that crafted the brutal thrash-punk-metal blueprint that countless bands have emulated for more than two decades. Their full-throttle velocity, wildly chaotic guitar solos, and powerful musical chops paint an effectively chilling sonic background for their obsessive chronicling of the dark side.

Slayer will play the Main Stage at this Summer’s Ozzfest, due to kick off this Saturday, July 10, joining Ozzy, Black Sabbath, the recently reunited Judas Priest, Philip Anselmo’s Superjoint Ritual, Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society and Norwegian black metal mavens Dimmu Borgir.
