SLAYER - to release comic book "Repentless #1"

SLAYER - to release comic book "Repentless #1 - 2017-01-11

2017-01-11 - SLAYER, the most badass thrash/metal band on the planet, will see issue #1 of its three-comic book series "Repentless" released on January 25 through Dark Horse Comics.

The comic book series is based on SLAYER's brutal 'Repentless' music videos, written and directed by B.J. McDonnell (Hatchet III) and scripted by director/producer Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, The Venture Bros., The Death of Superman Lives). "Twilight Zone" artist Guiu Vilanova created the inside artwork, while Eisner Award-winning British comics artist Glenn Fabry drew Issue #1's cover, and Eric Powell (The Goon, Hillbilly) created the variant cover.



Said SLAYER's Tom Araya about 'Repentless', "We're telling the story that we've always told about society and how humans treat each other."

For more than three decades, SLAYER's onslaught has proven the band to be the supreme thrash-metal band on the planet, the band that other heavy acts are measured against and aspire to. Their membership in "The Big Four" - METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX - the four bands that defined the thrash/metal genre - secures their place in music history. The two-time Grammy-winners have also accumulated an abundance of certified Gold Albums along with "Best..." awards from media outlets all over the world, including Kerrang!, SPIN, Metal Hammer, Revolver, and Esquire. Throughout SLAYER's history, the band has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault, and, unlike many of its contemporaries who "commercialized" their sound, SLAYER has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. SLAYER's founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for him since. Paul Bostaph, who was SLAYER's drummer from '94 - '01, has rejoined bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King, and is back behind the kit.

In September 2015, SLAYER released »Repentless«, the band's 12th studio album, the first without Hanneman and first with producer Terry Date, to widespread rave reviews and the highest chart debut of the band's career. The band also teamed up with director BJ McDonnell for three high-concept and brutal music videos for the album's 'Repentless', then for 'You Against You,' and the most recent, 'Pride in Prejudice'.
