SLAYER's 'Live Intrusion' To Be Released On DVD

According to Slayerized.com, SLAYER's classic first home video, "Live Intrusion", which was first released in 1995 on VHS, will finally be issued on DVD this summer. "Live Intrusion" is currently scheduled to be released in the U.K. on Monday, August 16; in Germany on Friday, August 27; and in the U.S. on Tuesday, August 17.

Filmed on SLAYER's "Divine Intervention" tour at the Mesa Amphitheater in Mesa, Arizona, on March 12, 1995, "Live Intrusion" features classic performances of "Raining Blood", "At Dawn They Sleep" and "Hell Awaits", as well as a cover version of the VENOM song "Witching Hour", performed by SLAYER with Chris Kontos and Robb Flynn of MACHINE HEAD.

SLAYER's latest album, "World Painted Blood", was recorded in Los Angeles over two time periods, during October 2008 and then between late January and March 2009. The CD was produced by Greg Fidelman, who's spent time in the studio with METALLICA, THE GOSSIP, THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY, SLIPKNOT and others, and executive-produced by longtime SLAYER colleague Rick Rubin, who suggested Fidelman for the project.

The CD initially shipped with four special collector's edition covers. Each of the four covers displayed one-fourth of a provocative continental map illustrated with human skulls and bones; when placed together, the four images form a complete and grisly map of the world. All four of the initial album packages included a special blood-red, see-through top panel with the map displayed beneath it.

SLAYER's track "Hate Worldwide" was nominated for a Grammy Award in the "Best Metal Performance" category. The award eventually went to British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST, who were honored for the track "Dissident Aggressor", from the band's 2009 live album "A Touch of Evil: Live".
