SLAYER - releases live show opener 'Repentless' from upcoming "Slayer: The Repentless Killogy"
If there is any doubt that SLAYER will be sorely missed once the band performs the last show of its »Final World Tour« on Saturday, November 30, then check out the beginning of the band’s concert, SLAYER‘s entrance on stage, and opening song, ‘Repentless.’ Taken from the upcoming two-part »Slayer: The Repentless Killogy« motion picture and companion LP/CD release »Live At The Forum In Inglewood, CA« due out November 8 (Nuclear Blast), this is just a demonstrable taste of why SLAYER has been one of the most influential thrash/punk/metal bands of the last 35-plus years, why an up-and-coming rock band’s professional “rite of passage” is simply surviving an entire SLAYER tour as the opening band, and why SLAYER‘s live shows are “must-see events.”
Watch the video below:
Directed by Wayne Isham who has worked with artists including METALLICA, FOO FIGHTERS, and MICHAEL JACKSON, part two of »Slayer: The Repentless Killogy« is SLAYER‘s entire 90-minute live set filmed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5, 2017, and showcases the spectacular pyrotechnic stage show for what has been cited as SLAYER‘s finest tour production.
Part one of the »Slayer: The Repentless Killogy« motion picture was written and directed by BJ McDonnell who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos – ‘You Against You,’ ‘Repentless,’ and ‘Pride In Prejudice’ – for SLAYER‘s final studio album, 2015’s »Repentless.« Encompassing revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution, the »Repentless Killogy« short film opens with the three music videos assembled as one chronological storyline and stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series, including Jason Trost (»Hatchet III«) who stars as Wyatt, and Danny Trejo (»From Dusk Till Dawn«).

ALCEST - unveil music video for second single, 'Sapphire'
After recently revealing their first single ‘Protection‘ and performing a genre-crossing set with Perturbator this week, French sound wizards ALCEST are ready to present the second single off their upcoming sixth studio album titled »Spiritual Instinct«. Recorded at the French Drudenhaus Studios and written in bursts both during and after a prolonged period of touring in support of 2016’s hugely successful »Kodama«, the new album – the first via Nuclear Blast – will lead the blackgaze pioneers into dark soundscapes full of spiritual catharsis and will be released on October 25th.
Today’s single, ‘Sapphire‘, is another magical creation blending shadows and light – the video was directed by Craig Murray (Mogwai, etc) and you can watch it here::

Bandleader Neige comments: “Here’s ‘Sapphire’, the second single from our upcoming album »Spiritual Instinct«. This one was also written in a very spontaneous, liberating way and has this 80’s post-punk feel that could remind of The Cure, The Chameleons, or even our older side project Amesoeurs. Hope you guys enjoy it.”
VELVET VIPER issue video for new single
Boosted by the success of their 2017 debut, »Letters To Myself«, modern melodic metal highflyers CYHRA are using that momentum and pushing forward with a new album – the sophomore »No Halos In Hell« will see the light of day on November 15th via Nuclear Blast.
Founded by vocalist Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE) and guitarist Jesper Strömblad (ex-IN FLAMES), CYHRA has gone from being reminiscent of the duo’s former bands to having a unique identity. In fact, »No Halos In Hell« is one of those rare albums that defies being neatly placed in a genre box; coming out heavy and dynamic, the record is loaded with melodic vocal hooks that stay nailed to the brain for days, achieving maximum impact throughout. Fusing a relentless energy and heaviness the best way possible was CYHRA‘s main focus this time out.
The addition of guitarist Euge Valovirta (ex-SHINING) as a full member has raised the creative process to a level where, according to Jake E, “Everyone is playing to the point of what is best for the song.”
Now, the day has finally come for the band to unleash a music video for their first single and lead-off track ‘Out Of My Life‘. Prepare for trouble and check out the new clip, directed by Swedish mastermind Patric Ullaeus, here:
