SLAYER have returned with a violent and visceral new video that prequels their hugely popular, gore-filled ‘Repentless’ clip that has to date, racked up over 7.5 million views on YouTube.

In ‘You Against You,’ vocalist Tom Araya screams; “Your perfect world is ending this day,  So what?  I wouldn’t have it any other way.”   And so, from the very first frame of the band’s ‘You Against You’ video, the gore, the violence, the projectile-blood-spewing and carnage begins…and just never ends.  Check out the video

As with ‘Repentless,’ which was shot in an LA prison, ‘You Against You’ was directed by BJ McDonnell, stars Jason Trost (Hatchet III) as the eye-patched rebel inmate, Wyatt, and tells the story of the circumstances that led to Wyatt’s erroneous arrest and imprisonment featured in ‘Repentless’.  SLAYER frontman Tom Araya comments “After the ‘Repentless’ video, BJ delivers again with ‘You Against You.’  Fucking awesome!!!!”

 

SLAYER‘s performance of ‘You Against You’ was shot in California’s Mojave desert earlier this year in a graveyard of jets, airliners, and helicopters.

‘Repentless’, SLAYER‘s 12th studio album, was released on 9/11/2015 and made numerous career-high official album chart debuts, both in the UK (#11). USA (#4) and across the world, for new record label, Nuclear Blast.  In addition, ‘Repentless’ received spectacular press response – “Metal Album of the Year” (Guitar World), “…prime fucking Slayer…” (Metal Hammer), “…thrash redefined, upgraded and reborn, a return to the essence of who Slayer is.” (Houston Press)

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
