October 30: In a new video released today, Slayer’s own Tom Araya and Kerry King share the story behind the previously-unseen short film and boundary-pushing music video trilogy that is set to feature alongside live concert footage from the revered 2017 Los Angeles Forum concert, during the one-night theatrical release of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy, coming to cinemas worldwide on November 6, from Trafalgar Releasing.
Featured in this exclusive new interview footage, Araya and King break down the making of the final film, from the original concept for the Repentless music video with Director BJ McDonnell, to collaborating with Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions to produce McDonnell’s larger vision for a unique, three-part narrative trilogy of relentlessly blood-soaked, revenge-driven music videos and the short film they inspired.
“When we first did it I thought we were just doing [the] Repentless [music video], I didn’t know we had a plan for three videos,” says Kerry speaking to the overall concept, “…this trilogy is unique and I think it’s unique to Slayer which makes it even cooler.”
The interview also explores Slayer’s relationship with Los Angeles and how meaningful it was to finally play the “Fabulous” Los Angeles Forum after years of being banned from playing live shows anywhere in Los Angeles County. Said Araya, “I grew up in L.A…I watched the Lakers, Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, a f*cking awesome team, that’s what I watched growing up and they were at the Fabulous Forum.”
The film will be in theaters for one-night-only from Trafalgar Releasing, Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions on November 6, and fans can now find local theaters and purchase tickets at Slayer.Film.
