Slayer To Release “The Repentless Killogy” Motion Picture And LP/CD In November

Slayer have announced that they will be releasing a new motion picture, titled “The Repentless Killogy,” on November 8. You can find a trailer for that below. The effort will be released alongside a live companion LP/CD, titled “The Repentless Killogy (Live at the Forum in Inglewood, CA),” which was recorded during the band’s August 5, 2017 show at The Forum in Inglewood, CA.

A press release offered more info:

Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution. 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).

“When we set out to do these initial three videos,” said McDonnell, “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 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, Jr. (“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.”

Tribulation To Release “Alive & Dead At Södra Teatern” In November

Tribulation have announced that they will be digitally releasing a new live album titled “Alive & Dead At Södra Teatern” on November 15. It will also be available as a 2-CD/1-DVD set and as a LP/DVD set on November 29. The effort was recorded during the band’s December 8, 2018 show at the Södra Teatern in Stockholm, Sweden, in which they played “Down Below” in full and other fan favorites.

The group commented:

“Playing Stockholm is always a special occasion for us, and since we’ve been living here for so long it in a way feels like playing at home. Since it’s a special thing for us, we always try to make it special for everyone else as well. Having the show at Södra Teatern made finding these special things easier than if we had been at a different location since just being there provided us with a beautifully haunting backdrop and gave us half of the ideas.

Having the show in two acts is something that we’ve had in mind for quite some time, and being at an old theatre obviously made this the perfect opportunity. Along with the two acts we also had Orvar Säfström as a compere or as a, more dramatic sounding, master of ceremonies framing the evening with two short speeches at the beginning of each act.

We played ‘Down Below‘ from start til finish in the first act with a stage set up we’ve never used before, something that could hint at a future development. Time will tell. The second act was the more traditional act with the old stage design and an array of old songs. The best thing about it might be that this event might be the first of similar events in the future, but those would, if they happen, obviously be even more grandiose! Again, time will tell.”

“Alive & Dead at Södra Teatern” Track Listing:


01. “The Lament”
02. “Nightbound”
03. “Lady Death”
04. “Subterranea”
05. “Purgatorio”
06. “Cries From The Underworld”
07. “Lacrimosa”
08. “The World”
09. “Here Be Dragons”


01. “Trollens Brudmarsch”
02. “Melancholia”
03. “The Motherhood Of God”
04. “Rånda”
05. “Ultra Silvam”
06. “Guitar Solo”
07. “Strange Gateways Beckon”
08. “Strains Of Horror”

Skindred To Record Live Album At London Show

Skindred have announced that they will be recording their first-ever live album during a show at the Roundhouse in London, England. The concert will be held on November 21, 2020 and tickets will be available this Friday (September 6) at Live Nation.

Drummer Arya Goggin commented:

“We are stoked to be playing at the Roundhouse. It has been on my personal bucket list for a while, so recording it as a live album makes it all the better for us to bring our A game and put on an amazing show.

Skindred are all about supporting the live industry and helping to keep historical music venues open, so playing in rooms like the Roundhouse only endorses our want to support these fantastic rooms rather than see them turned into car parks.”

The group’s manager Seven Webster (7pm Management) added:

“The band have always wanted to record a live album and for us it was just a matter of finding somewhere extremely unique to record it. The Roundhouse, aside from being a landmark venue, has had some incredible rock bands play there over the years, from the likes of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Ramones and Motörhead, so where else were we going to do it.”

📀The DVD/BLU-RAY nails the tour with recordings from Wacken in front of 75,000 metal heads and 14,000 fans in the Madrid arena – and as a bonus, the show in the Espaço das Américas, gathering 8,000 in São Paulo. Altogether it offers over three hours of live material in stereo and premium 5.1 surround sound, plus backstage material, tons of surprises, and a very personal band interview about the past, present, and future. The LIVE-CD/VINYL presents a whopping 2 hours 20 of pure audio material from the concert in Madrid plus four bonus tracks from the shows in Prague, São Paulo, Wacken, and Santiago de Chile. – There honestly was no way, we could’ve fit more on the discs.

This record is live, unedited, no backing tracks, and all songs are performed and written by the people in this band.
