SLAYER have returned with a violent and visceral new video that prequels their hugely popular, gore-filled ‘Repentless’ clip that has to date, racked up over 7.5 million views on YouTube.

In ‘You Against You,’ vocalist Tom Araya screams; “Your perfect world is ending this day,  So what?  I wouldn’t have it any other way.”   And so, from the very first frame of the band’s ‘You Against You’ video, the gore, the violence, the projectile-blood-spewing and carnage begins…and just never ends.  Check out the video here:

As with ‘Repentless,’ which was shot in an LA prison, ‘You Against You’ was directed by BJ McDonnell, stars Jason Trost (Hatchet III) as the eye-patched rebel inmate, Wyatt, and tells the story of the circumstances that led to Wyatt’s erroneous arrest and imprisonment featured in ‘Repentless’.  SLAYER frontman Tom Araya comments “After the ‘Repentless’ video, BJ delivers again with ‘You Against You.’  Fucking awesome!!!!”

SLAYER‘s performance of ‘You Against You’ was shot in California’s Mojave desert earlier this year in a graveyard of jets, airliners, and helicopters.

‘Repentless’, SLAYER‘s 12th studio album, was released on 9/11/2015 and made numerous career-high official album chart debuts, both in the UK (#11). USA (#4) and across the world, for new record label, Nuclear Blast.  In addition, ‘Repentless’ received spectacular press response – “Metal Album of the Year” (Guitar World), “…prime fucking Slayer…” (Metal Hammer), “…thrash redefined, upgraded and reborn, a return to the essence of who Slayer is.” (Houston Press)
