SLAYER: 'Still Reigning' Video Samples Posted Online

Streaming video clips of three songs from SLAYER's brand new DVD, "Still Reigning", have been made available from Universal Music. Check them out: "Angel of Death" (Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Media), "Criminally Insane" (Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Media) and "Post Mortem" (Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Media).

"Still Reigning" 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. Hanneman unintentionally avoided the initial bloodbath as he stepped offstage for just a moment to handle a problem with his guitar, and missed the cue; but was deluged as he stepped back onstage.

"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.
