  Some of you may have read recently about the filming of Slayer's Repentless video. The movie style filming took place at Sybil Brand Institute, a former county jail for female inmates. Not only did Tom Araya (vocals/bass), Kerry King (guitar), Gary Holt (guitar) and Paul Bostaph (drums) play to a boisterous crowd of "inmates" in the prison yard, but the site was also the scene to some pretty gruesome activity, played out by the likes of Machete himself, Danny Trejo, and legendary Halloween villain Tony Moran

   As people would expect from a Slayer video, there's a lot of blood involved. Directed by BJ McDonnell, the whole filming process apparently had a very film set like vibe about the whole thing, and the results prove it was worth it. Although Metallica played in a prison to real inmates for St Anger, not only is Repentless a much better song, but having the whole prison riot/murder spree concept is so much more interesting than a simple performance video.  It's good to see that the band back on form!
