Slayer Releases "You Against You" Music Video

In Slayer's song "You Against You," vocalist Tom Araya screams "Your perfect world is ending this day, So what? I wouldn't have it any other way." And so, from the very first frame of the band's "You Against You" music video, the gore, the violence, the projectile-blood-spewing and the carnage begins and just never ends.

"You Against You" is the prequel to "Repentless," Slayer's brutal 2015 video filmed at an L.A. prison that has logged nearly 7.5 million YouTube views.

Like "Repentless," "You Against You" was directed by BJ McDonnell, stars Jason Trost ("Hatchet III") as Wyatt (the eyepatched rebel inmate) and tells the story of the circumstances that led to Wyatt's erroneous arrest and imprisonment.

Slayer's performance of "You Against You" was shot deep in the heart of California's Mojave desert earlier this year in a graveyard of jets, airliners, and helicopters.

"After the 'Repentless' video," said Slayer's Tom Araya, "BJ delivers with 'You Against You.' Fucking awesome!!!!!"

Slayer is currently in the final weeks of a winter 2016 North American tour with Testament and Carcass supporting. Remaining dates are below.

3/17 Revolution Event Center, Boise, ID
3/19 The Paramount, Seattle, WA
3/20 Roseland Ballroom, Portland, OR
3/22 Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA
3/23 Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA
3/25 Rabobank Theatre, Bakersfield, CA

Although I'm not a huge fan of the music itself, these clips are fantastic mini-movies.

This video is awesome, but I like the song repentless better....I wish I could have caught slayer on this album tour but they didn't come to my state so I went to see Iron Maiden instead.....My favorite slayer albums will always be the old stuff with hanneman but the newest one is pretty good and gets frequent play in my car....Hails and Horns to the Almighty Slayer......SLAYER UBER ALLES!!!! \m/
