Full of revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution, the first part of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy is a short narrative film written and directed by BJ McDonnell, that blends the music of Slayer with an uncompromising and unmissable trilogy of music videos assembled as one chronological storyline.

About Slayer - www.slayer.net
In January 2018, thrash titans SLAYER devastated metalheads across the globe announcing they were calling it a day, along with a mammoth final world tour. After 37 years, 12 studio releases, five GRAMMY nominations and two wins, an abundance of Gold albums, multitudes of magazine covers and other recognitions, Slayer's place in music history is secure as one of The Big Four (alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax): they helped define the thrash-metal genre. Even among peers of that quality, Slayer still proudly stands alone and remains one of the most influential bands in heavy metal history. With Tom Araya's unmistakable vocals, Kerry King and Gary Holt's slaughtering guitar riffs, Paul Bostaph's hostile drums, and nasty-as-fuck lyrics, Slayer continues to whip its fans into anarchistic, antichrist-fueled frenzies unmatched by any other act on the planet. Not many bands can add to their resume having been banned from the Hollywood Palladium and Madison Square Garden for twenty-five years.
Throughout the band's history, Slayer has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault and, unlike many of its contemporaries who chose to commercialize their sound, Slayer has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. Slayer's founding member, the beloved and uncompromising guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who wrote some of Slayer's most iconic songs including "Angel of Death," passed in 2013, and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for him since. Paul Bostaph, who was Slayer's drummer from '94 - '01, rejoined the lineup in 2013 and is back behind the kit to the end.
Launched on May 10, 2018 in San Diego, CA, by the time the 18-month, seven-leg, 152-show tour wraps on November 30, 2019 at the Los Angeles Forum, Slayer will have said goodbye to fans in 30 countries over five continents. All hail Slayer.
