Slayer announces “The Repentless Killogy” motion picture
After much speculation instigated by two video trailers released earlier this summer, Slayer 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. Pre-orders can be placed HERE.
Check out the trailer for this special movie release here:
The “Repentless Killogy” film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos – “You Against You”, “Repentless”, and “Pride in Prejudice” – for Slayer’s final studio album “Repentless” (2015). McDonell comments: “When we set out to do these initial three videos, we had the intention of continuing the next adventures of Slayer and Wyatt on a following album. But, Slayer announced that “Repentless” was the final album and tour, so this story, the videos, and finally a full live concert at the end is a perfect wrap up of the “Repentless” final tour. This is the finale of Slayer. This is the end of the monsters.”
“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”), 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”.
