SLAYER'S REPENTLESS - THE #2-BEST SELLING ALBUM ON THE PLANET GIVING THE BAND ITS BIGGEST GLOBAL CHART SUCCESS TO DATE

SLAYER'S REPENTLESS - THE #2-BEST SELLING - 2015-09-24

2015-09-24 - Thirty-two years into its recording career, SLAYER is reveling in its best week on the charts across the globe with the 9/11 release of Repentless (Nuclear Blast). The album is this week's #2-best selling album in the world according to the United World Chart, Media Traffic's amalgamation of official album sales charts from dozens of principal countries around the world.

The album scored a Top 10 debut in 25 countries, Top 5 in 14 countries, and made career-highest debuts in the United States, the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and New Zealand.

"The entire Nuclear Blast global team thanks SLAYER and their loyal fans everywhere for the tremendous first-week success for Repentless," said Gerardo Martinez, NB's General Manager, USA. "SLAYER made an amazing album that stayed true to who the band is, and the fans' overwhelming response is proof of that."

"Repentless," the first music video for the album, has now amassed more views in less than two weeks than any of the band's previous music videos during the same time frame - more than four-million views at social media. The video was directed by BJ McDonnell ("Hatchet III"), filmed at the Sybil Brand women's prison in East Los Angeles, and features copious amounts of blood, grizzly murders, and cameo appearances by some of Hollywood's most recognized anti-heroes, including Danny Trejo ("From Dusk Till Dawn") and Tony Moran ("Halloween").

On this previously unreleased video clip, SLAYER's Tom Araya and Kerry King talk discuss the "Repentless" track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvpM0M3LeCY
