After much speculation instigated by two video trailers released earlier this summer, SLAYER – Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph – in conjunction with Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions, announces “Slayer: The Repentless Killogy” motion picture and companion LP/CD, “The Repentless Killogy, Live At The Forum in Inglewood, CA.”
Coming November 8, 2019, the narrative short film paired with Slayer’s entire performance of its August 5, 2017 concert at the Los Angeles Forum 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.
“The Repentless Trilogy” motion picture opens with the three music videos assembled as one chronological storyline and introduces 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. Prior to the first music video, Wyatt had left the gang after he fell in love with Gina. The two had gone into hiding to escape his grisly past and start a family, but The Hand Brotherhood was not going to allow that to happen, and Gina, pregnant with their first child, was savagely murdered as Wyatt was forced to look on. The film then segues into the present-time narrative that sees Wyatt on the run from law enforcement and the Nazi gang, but now dedicated to eliminating The Hand Brotherhood and seeking retribution wherever he can.
“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.”), 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 5, 2017, and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including METALLICA, FOO FIGHTERS, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, and Britney Spears. Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band’s career, SLAYER performs fan favorites, including “South Of Heaven”, “War Ensemble”, “Mandatory Suicide”, “Dead Skin Mask”, “Raining Blood” and “Angel Of Death”.
