Last week, SLAYER shot the music video for their upcoming album’s title track, “Repentless”, in the exercise yard of the Sybil Brand Institute, the women’s prison in East Los Angeles, with director BJ McDonnell.
The fitting making-of clip premieres now on rollingstone.com and can be seen exclusively HERE.
This is McDonnell‘s first stint directing a music video. He directed the 2013 horror film “Hatchet III”, and his rich resume as a motion picture cameraman includes “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”, “Ant-Man” and “The Interview”. For SLAYER‘s “Repentless”, he and the video’s producer Felissa Rose pulled together a gang of actors and crew who have been part of some of the most iconic horror films ever made: Derek Mears (“Predators”, “Friday The 13th”), Tyler Mane (“HalloweenV), Jason Trost (VHatchet III”), Danny Trejo (“Machete”, “From Dusk Till Dawn”), Tony Moran (“Halloween”‘s Michael Myers, “American Poltergeist”), Sean Whalen (“Men In Black”, “Halloween II”), and Vernon Wells (“Mad Max 2″, “Commando”, “Weird Science”) all are featured inmates in the video. And if that wasn’t enough, McDonnell and Rose brought in stunt coordinator Nils Allen Stewart who is known for his work on films like “Planet Of The Apes”, “Anger Management” and “Daredevil”.
The date for the premiere of SLAYER‘s ‘Repentless’ music video will be announced shortly. “Repentless”, SLAYER‘s 11th studio album, is due out 9/11/15 via Nuclear Blast Records.
