Producer Says New SLAYER DVD Was 'Tough To Mix' Due To Its Sloppiness

Producer Kevin Shirley (DREAM THEATER, IRON MAIDEN) has finished mixing a live performance by SLAYER for their upcoming DVD, "Reign in Blood Live: Still Reigning", due on September 28. Regarding the DVD recordings, Shirley writes on his web site, "It's OK — some places it rocks hard, and others are a bit sloppy, but I'm sure they won't use the whole concert. It was tough to mix." [Editor's note: the original post on Shirley's web site has since been altered to read, "The rest of the week I finished mixing a live SLAYER set for a DVD, in stereo and surround, and it's great — it rocks hard, but it was tough to mix."]

As previously reported, "Reign in Blood Live: Still Reigning" will feature a full performance of the 1986 album "Reign in Blood" by all original members of the veteran thrash metal outfit. The DVD, recorded on July 11 in Augusta, Maine, will have an approximate 75-minute running time and will retail for $14.98.

SLAYER modified their stage backdrop at the Augusta Concert to reflect the look of the mid-'80s "Reign in Blood" tour, including the SLAYER eagle and the controversial upside-down crosses that are part of the lighting rig. A ten-camera crew under the direction of Dean Karr (IRON MAIDEN) was on hand to document the show plus all the backstage action.
