For years, artists have looked to create exciting and innovative stage designs for their fans - thrash/punk/metal gods SLAYER will push that concept right over the edge this fall with an effect dubbed the "Wall of Blood." Slayer's Wall of Blood will make its North American debut when the band headlines the Jagermeister Music Tour, set to kick off October 29 in Springfield, MO.

At select shows (determined by each venue's technical specs) during Slayer's classic song "Raining Blood," the band, their instruments, and the stage will be drenched by a downpour of "blood." The "Wall of Blood" will rain more than 150 litres of theatrical blood over an area measuring from 32-feet to 40-feet wide (determined by the size of the venue’s stage), 25-feet high, and six-feet deep. The device is a dedicated truss and sprinkler system that utilizes a unique pump technology, and was designed exclusively for Slayer by UK-based Hangman Productions.

Slayer used the "raining blood" effect last July in Augusta, ME while filming their brand-new DVD, "Still Reigning." The Dean Karr-directed DVD opens with the the band's 1986, 28-minute benchmark album "Reign In Blood" performed live in its entirety by Slayer's original line-up - Tom Araya (vocals, bass), guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Dave Lombardo, who permanently rejoined the band in 2003. "Still Reigning" also offers bonus material including live performances of Slayer classics such as "War Ensemble," "Hallowed Point," "Necrophobic," "Mandatory Suicide," "Spill The Blood," "Hell Awaits," and "South of Heaven," as well as exclusive interviews and backstage footage. "Still Reigning" has a running time of more than 80-minutes and a confirmed November 2, 2004 release date.

SLAYER was named the "Best Live Band Ever" in Revolver magazine, and "Best Band" in that magazine's 2004 Readers' Poll. In addition, Slayer's video, "Bloodline," was just named "#1 Best Metal Video of the New Millennium (So Far)" by viewers of MTV2's "Headbangers Ball" and readers of Revolver.

Slayer’s “Wall of Blood” will be in effect at as many venues on the Fall Jagermeister Music Tour as possible; the confirmed “bloodbath” cities/venues will be announced shortly.
