The reigning kings of thrash, SLAYER, have released their first album in six years, “Repentless”, today via Nuclear Blast.
“Repentless” is SLAYER’s first new studio album since 2009’s critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated »World Painted Blood«. The twelve songs were produced byTerry Date and recorded between August 2014 and mid-January 2015 at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.
The first music video from »Repentless«, the title track, also makes its global premiere today at RollingStone and is available for streaming above.
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: 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”), and Vernon Wells (“Mad Max 2″, “Commando”, “Weird Science”).
