The Press Release:
Today, Nuclear Blast is very pleased to announce the signing of modern metal outfit AMARANTHE. The Swedish/Danish six-piece is currently working on their 6th studio album, which will tentatively be unleashed in 2020. More big announcements are currently in the pipeline, stay tuned!

AMARANTHE’s Olof Mörck states, “It feels amazing to unveil our cooperation with the giants at Nuclear Blast! Ever since we held our shiny new Nuclear Blast CD’s in our teenage hands back in the mid-90’s, they have been at the forefront of bringing the best of the best to the metal scene, and to have them as partners is a dream come true! They are not only massively experienced in the metal scene, but also wonderful people and it has been a pleasure getting to know them. We are already nailing down great plans for the future, and things are looking brighter and stronger for AMARANTHE than ever! Keep your eyes open for our next leap forward together in the near future!”

Marcus Hammer, Managing Director of Nuclear Blast, adds, “We’re more than happy to welcome AMARANTHE and Kult Management to the Nuclear Blast family. I’ve already been following the group for a while as they were touring with some of their new label mates. Being both great musicians and humans, that have a clear vision and are supported by an experienced team in the back, it was a no-brainer to try to win this outstanding band for our roster. Now we’re stoked to be the new partner at their side pursuing one goal: adding a successful next chapter to their already shiny career. The future looks bright for both, AMARANTHE and Nuclear Blast.”

The Press Release:
After much speculation instigated by two video trailers released earlier this summer, SLAYER – Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt and Paul Bostaph – in conjunction with Nuclear Blast Records and Prime Zero Productions, announces SLAYER The Repentless Killogy motion picture and companion LP/CD, “The Repentless Killogy, Live At The Forum in Inglewood, CA.” Coming November 8, 2019, the narrative short film paired with SLAYER ’s entire performance of its August 5, 2017 concert at the Los Angeles Forum will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages. In addition to the standard black vinyl, eight limited-edition colored vinyl configurations will be available: red, gold and silver vinyl, red/black & orange splatter, red/orange swirl, red/black splatter, yellow/red corona, and black/white corona Pre-orders can be placed HERE. Check out the trailer for this special movie release below.

Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution. The “Repentless Killogy” film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos – “You Against You,” “Repentless,” and “Pride in Prejudice”- for SLAYER’s final studio album Repentless (2015). “When we set out to do these initial three videos,” said McDonnell, “we had the intention of continuing the next adventures of SLAYER and Wyatt on a following album. But, SLAYER announced that Repentless was the final album and tour, so this story, the videos, and finally a full live concert at the end is a perfect wrap up of the Repentless final tour. This is the finale of SLAYER. This is the end of the monsters.”

I don’t recall a headlining appearance as a proper tour since one that hit the now shuttered B.B. King Blues Club that came through in 2008.
