SLAYER plan to film their July 11th, 2004 show at the Augusta (Maine) Civic Center for their upcoming DVD, Reign in Blood Live: Still Reigning. The band will perform the 1986 thrash masterpiece, Reign in Blood, in its entirety during the show. SLAYER plans to have ten cameras stationed around the venue to film the performance. Backstage footage and interviews will also be shot for the DVD.
“Reign in Blood is our signature record and if people think that it helped set the path for that genre of music, that’s great,” Tom Araya (vocals/bass) said. “It’s a record that means a lot to all of us in the band.”
SLAYER begin Ozzfest with a July 10th stop in Hartford, Connecticut. The group has lined up headlining dates of its own on Ozzfest off days, with SLIPKNOT, HATEBREED, and JUDAS PRIEST sharing some of the bills.
