SLAYER To Guest On Next Week's 'Headbanger's Ball'

According to a posting at the SLAYER fan site SlayerSaves.com, SLAYER will be special guests on the next week's episode of MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" airing at 10:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, November 13.

SLAYER have just issued a new DVD, "Still Reigning", via Universal Music. The disc features, for the first time ever, the original SLAYER lineup — Tom Araya (vocals, bass), guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Dave Lombardo, who permanently rejoined the band in 2003 — performing an entire concert live. The cornerstone of the DVD is the 1986, 28-minute classic album "Reign In Blood", performed in its entirety. During the final 45-seconds of the song "Raining Blood", "blood rains from the heavens," completely drenching the band, their instruments, and the stage.

"Still Reigning" was directed by Dean Karr (IRON MAIDEN's "Rock in Rio", the groundbreaking "Sweet Dreams" for MARILYN MANSON), and was shot on July 11 at the Civic Center in Augusta, ME. Ten cameras, including three hand-held mini-DVs, captured SLAYER throughout the day and evening, filming an abundance of footage and exclusive interviews shot backstage, on the band's tour bus, and live on stage.
