Watch Slayer’s Vicious Video for “You Against You”
Thrash metal icons Slayer have released a vicious new video for “You Against You,” the latest track to emerge from the 2015 Repentless album.
“It’s really cool being part of a video that’s not just some crappy music video from the Eighties or Nineties,”said Kerry King in an interview with Rolling Stone. “It’s from a real Hollywood director (BJ McDonnell) who has a lot of friends in the biz who stepped up and wanted to be in a Slayer video. That’s what makes it cool to me.”
This video serves as a prequel to the prison riot video for “Repentless.” Here, you get to see how the psychopathic, eye-patch wearing character wound up (briefly) behind bars.

“As long as we are doing this, yeah, we want to push boundaries,” said Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph in a 2015 interview with Riffyou.com. “Sometimes you stumble upon a formula that really pushes boundaries and its magic and lightning in a bottle. Other times, it takes years to come up with a really great album or another pinnacle album. We’re going to keeping trying to push the boundaries – that’s what we do. That’s what music is all about.”
