THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE TOUR A MIGHTY ALLIANCE ON DVD
Hailed as "the heaviest, darkest metal tour of the summer, if not the year," the Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted, stomped and screamed around the globe last year. On October 30, just in time for Halloween, the Unholy Alliance Tour DVD package will be released (American Recordings) and will feature the tour's line-up - headliner Slayer, the undisputed kings of speed metal/thrash, and the "future of heavy metal contenders" - Lamb of God, Mastodon, Children of Bodom and Thine Eyes Bleed. The DVD will have an approximate running time of 90-minutes.
The Unholy Alliance Tour DVD/CD was shot at Vancouver's General Motors Place on July 13, 2006, was directed by Adam Rothlein (Speedway Films), and boasts performance footage plus bonus material to include backstage, behind-the-scenes and one-on-one interviews, many of which were conducted by the Unholy Alliance artists themselves.
Slayer's "Eyes of the Insane," which took home a Grammy Award this year, is included on the DVD. Other selections on the DVD include Lamb of God's "Vigil," Mastodon's "Blood Thunder," "Capillarian Crest," and "Crystal Skull," Children of Bodom's "Angels Don't Kill" and "In Your Face," and Slayer's "Angel of Death," "Dead Skin Mask," "South of Heaven," and "Antichrist," among many others.
The Unholy Alliance Tour: Preaching to the Perverted garnered terrific press last summer - "It's so metal, it HURTS - KKKKK (Kerrang!), "Effin' brutal!" (OC Weekly), "...stomps, rages and screams..." (Los Angeles Times, "...a show no metalhead should miss..." (Harder Beat), and "...the alliance itself proved mighty" (Worcester Telegram Gazette).
Currently, Slayer is just wrapping up a North American co-headline concert tour with Marilyn Manson. The dates are in support of the band's new release, a special limited edition of "Christ Illusion," which hit stores July 24. The next edition of the worldwide Unholy Alliance Tour will kick off late 2008.
