This week, I spoke with Slayer’s Kerry King by phone and we shot the shit for about 30 minutes about the upcoming American Carnage tour, with Megadeth and Anthrax. Kerry’s psyched to be back on the road with the “Clash of the Titans” tour lineup but he’s even more psyched on the DVD box set the band’s got coming. There’s also some vinyl reissues on the way.
“I know we’ve got all the vinyl from Reign in Blood on being re-issued, and that’s called The Vinyl Conflict,” Kerry tells me. “And there’s a DVD box set coming with [2003’s] War at the Warfield, [2004’s] Still Reigning, and Live Intrusion, which has never been available on DVD.”
That’s right, kids. The 1995 Live Intrusion VHS tape, which has not been in print for years, is coming to DVD. Filmed March 12 in Mesa, Arizona, the tape features a cover of Venom’s “Witching Hour” with Machine Head’s Rob Flynn. How sick is that?
What’s coming for the band after Carnage? “I would imagine we have a lot more touring come up, it just depends on the logistics of everything,” he says. “We’ll pick up in January and we’ll be playing next summer.”
