Slayer to Release ‘The Repentless Killogy’ Live Album/Motion Picture
Slayer's career is coming to an end, but before they play their final show on Nov. 30 later this year, they'll release The Repentless Killogy on Nov. 8, which features a short motion picture in addition to a 2017 audio-only performance on the Repentless tour.
The live recording was culled from an Aug. 5, 2017 gig at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. as Slayer ripped through a 21-song set prior to announcing their multi-year farewell tour. As stated above, the live CD/LP will be accompanied by a BJ McDonnell-directed short film, which the band had been teasing earlier this year.
The director was also the brains behind the ultra-violent music videos that supported the Repentless album, and he said of the star-studded film, "When we set out to do these initial three videos, we had the intention of continuing the next adventures of Slayer and Wyatt on a following album. But, Slayer announced that Repentless was the final album and tour, so this story, the videos, and finally a full live concert at the end is a perfect wrap up of the Repentless final tour. This is the finale of Slayer. This is the end of the monsters."
A press release detailed the motion picture, describing,
The "Repentless Trilogy" motion picture opens with the three music videos assembled as one chronological storyline and introduces the narrative's main character, Wyatt, a former Neo Nazi associated with a gang known as "The Hand Brotherhood," whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place. Prior to the first music video, Wyatt had left the gang after he fell in love with Gina. The two had gone into hiding to escape his grisly past and start a family, but The Hand Brotherhood was not going to allow that to happen, and Gina, pregnant with their first child, was savagely murdered as Wyatt was forced to look on. The film then segues into the present-time narrative that sees Wyatt on the run from law enforcement and the Nazi gang, but now dedicated to eliminating The Hand Brotherhood and seeking retribution wherever he can.
Appearing in the film are Jason Trost (Beats of Rage, Hatchet III) as Wyatt, Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Til Dawn), Richard Speight (Band of Brothers, Supernatural), Derek Mears (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jessica Pimentel (Orange Is The New Black), Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween II), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Sharknado 4), and Sean Whalen (Twister, The People Under The Stairs).
