Slayer have released a brand new video for 'Pride In Prejudice', completing the their 'Repentless' video trilogy. The dark clip follows on from 'Repentless' itself, which was released in late 2015, and 'You Against You', which followed earlier this year.
A convicted prisoner on death row, a family unit putting up the Christmas decorations, lightness and darkness colliding, white supremacists, ruthless murders - it's all there in the 'Pride in Prejudice' music video.
"I'm particularly excited about this third video," says director BJ McDonnell, "because we played with stylistic differences with the trilogy. Where one video plays like an action film, this third one is more of a dramatic piece. The final story takes us into a world that is especially sinister in tone, with the dark and the light colliding. The conclusion is visually cinematic and harsh, with Slayer conducting us through it all with 'Pride In Prejudice.'"
Speaking about the recording of the video, Slayer guitarist Kerry King was full of praise for the director. Says King: "It was a pleasure working with BJ on this project. Slayer is notorious for letting the artist be the artist, the producer be the producer, and the director be the director, etc. By doing this we get a completely unique perspective that never really strays far from our own. Get ready for video three. It's my favourite!"
With the premiere of 'Pride in Prejudice,' which can be viewed below, Slayer completes the 'Repentless' music video trilogy. The 'Repentless' trilogy was conceived and directed by BJ McDonnell, who directed the 2013 horror film, 'Hatchett III.' His rich resume as a motion picture cameraman includes 'Jack Reacher,' 'Tomorrowland' and 'The Interview,.
In September 2015, Slayer released 'Repentless', the band's twelfth studio album, and their first without founding member Jeff Hanneman. It was also their first with producer Terry Date, who is most famously associated with Pantera. Slayer - voaclist / bassist Tom Araya, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and touring guitarist Gary Holt - has toured almost non-stop since the release, including headlining the U.K.'s recent Bloodstock Festival.
