Slayer DVD Still Reigning To Be Released October 26, 2004

Recognized as the pioneers of the thrash/punk/metal sound that set a benchmark for the genre, the mighty Slayer will headline this fall's Jagermeister Music Tour, set to kick off October 29 in Springfield, MO. The tour will rage across the country for seven weeks, playing in some 37-cities. This will be the second consecutive year that Slayer has headlined the tour. Joining Slayer for the Jagermeister Music Tour fall dates will be Killswitch Engage and Mastodon.

Slayer's Jagermeister tour follows the band's summer dates on Ozzfest where they received glowing press. A Cleveland weekly wrote, “Slayer is arguably the greatest and most influential thrash/speed metal band of all time,” while the Reuters review noted, “Slayer was the only act whose intensity remains undiminished...unmatched.” Just before the Jagermeister dates kick off, Slayer will co-headline a four-week, 21-city tour of the UK and Europe with Slipknot.

On October 26, in tandem with the Jagermeister Music tour, Slayer will release the DVD Still Reigning. The DVD will feature, for the first time ever, the original Slayer line-up -- Tom Araya vocals, bass, guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Dave Lombardo (who permanently rejoined the band in 2003), performing an entire concert live. The cornerstone of the DVD will be the 1986, 28-minute classic album Reign In Blood, performed in its entirety. During the final 45-seconds of the song "Raining Blood," "blood rains from the heavens," completely drenching the band, their instruments, and the stage. Hanneman unintentionally avoided the initial bloodbath as he stepped offstage for just a moment to handle a problem with his guitar and missed the cue, but was deluged as he stepped back onstage.

Still Reigning was directed by Dean Karr (Iron Maiden's Rock in Rio, the groundbreaking "Sweet Dreams" for Marilyn Manson), and was shot in July at the Civic Center in Augusta, ME. Ten cameras, including three hand-held mini-DVs, captured 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.

It's been more than 20 years since Slayer unleashed its extreme and focused sonic assault, and, unlike many of their contemporaries who "commercialized" their sound, Slayer remains crushing and brutal and have steadfastly refused to cater to radio programmers. Slayer's influence is evident on bands from Slipknot to Ministry to Deftones, and throughout its history, Slayer has played host to many band's breakthrough tours, taking out System of a Down, Hatebreed, Chimaira, In Flames, and Clutch, among others.
