It’s like month four-hundredth (or so it feels) of social distancing and quarantine. Basically, every tour slated for the Spring and Summer have either been scratched or tentatively rescheduled for next year. For those not keeping score that means that we’ve lost a Megadeth and Lamb of God co-headliner, Deftones with support from Gojira, and a Sepultura trek featuring the likes of Sacred Reich and Crowbar. So, it’s been a rough year. Not content to sulk over the loss of their own tour with Jinjer and Toothgrinder, Suicide Silence decided to try something different.

June 6th (6/6) will forever be known as the “International Day of Slayer,” the annual heavy metal holiday that commemorates the uncompromising, loud and defiant music of the iconic band Slayer. At midnight tomorrow, Saturday, June 6, for the first time since its theatrical and DVD/Blu-ray release last November, the motion picture Slayer: The Repentless Killogy will make its VIDEO ON DEMAND debut. The release is in celebration of tomorrow’s “International Day of Slayer,” the annual heavy metal holiday that commemorates the uncompromising, loud and defiant music of the iconic thrash/punk/metal band Slayer. Since the holiday’s inception 18 years ago, every June 6, Slayer fans have staged a “Slay-out,” skipping work or school in favor of spending the day listening to Slayer at nuclear blast level, in their car, at home, or the public place of their choice. However, this year, to make sure every Slayer acolyte stays lean and mean, the “International Day of Slayer” can be saluted in the privacy and comfort of your own home – a “Slay-In.” As part of the celebration, the feature film will premiere at the special rate of $6.66 USD for one week, with 50% of the proceeds, donated on behalf of Slayer, Nuclear Blast and Global Merchandising Services, earmarked for Live Nation’s Crew Nation charity to help support live music road crew members who have been directly impacted as a result of COVID-19. Check out the trailer for the film here; pre-order “Slayer: The Repentless Killogy” ON DEMAND VIDEO below. Watch the trailer now! Continue reading

Many consider the British band, Paradise Lost to be the fathers of the Gothic Metal genre. Formed in 1988, four out of the five members have been there since the beginning. This tight-knit group of guys is a prime example of a hard-working band who knows how to stay creative and original. The exploration and determination of this act has led them down some unique roads over the years. After experimenting on albums like One Second (Music for Nations) and Believe In Nothing (EMI), Paradise Lost got back to their roots in 2015. They embraced their Death Metal background with the release of The Plague Within (Century Media Records) and 2017’s Medusa (Nuclear Blast).
