Slayer's 12th studio album "Repentless" is out today - 9/11 - and in celebration the band drops a new music video for the title track.

The video was shot late last month at the Sybil Brand Institute in East Los Angeles and is a grizzly depiction of what the Kerry King-created word means: "to feel no regret or remorse."

Slayer performed the song in the prison yard while a riot broke out, blood flowed in abundance, and inmates and prison guards were slaughtered. Directed by BJ McDonnell and produced by Felissa Rose, the video features cameos by actors who have been part of some of the most iconic horror films ever made: Danny Trejo ("Machete," "From Dusk Till Dawn"), Tony Moran ("Halloween's" Michael Myers, "American Poltergeist"), Derek Mears ("Predators," "Friday the 13th") Tyler Mane ("Halloween") Jason Trost ("Hatchet III"), Sean Whalen ("Men In Black," "Halloween II"), and Vernon Wells ("Mad Max 2," "Commando," "Weird Science").

This is McDonnell's first stint directing a music video. He directed the 2013 horror film "Hatchet III," and his resume as a motion picture cameraman includes "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Ant-Man" and "The Interview."

For the "Repentless" video, 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."

I dig this song and video. The other songs released so far don't really do anything for me, unfortunately.

I have been listening to Slayer since SoH came out in 88 and they have been my favourite band ever since.

I am not sure what the bagging is about with the new album. I REALLY like it.

IMO, this is the best release since Seasons in the Abyss.

Long live SLAYER!
