Metal monsters take
over MySpace for some demonic fun.
By Blurt Staff
Now THIS is
scary – even scarier than trying to navigate the clunky, slow-as-molasses
tonight at Midnight, Slayer will commandeer MySpace’s Music Home Page for the entire Halloween
The first Slayer Halloween treat will be the exclusive premiere of Slayer’s
brand new album, World Painted Blood,
which is due in stores next Tuesday, November 3. Check out such sensitive
ditties as “Psychopathy Red,” “Hate Worldwide,” “Snuff,”
“Public Display of Dismemberment,” “Not of This God,” and
“Beauty Through Order” and the title track – the whole thing, start
to finish and on demand – until Tuesday when you can own your very own copy. It’s
even better than getting a box set of Saw DVDs.
But if you really want to get creeped out this Halloween, then check out the
video graphic novel “Playing With Dolls,” which will be exclusively available for viewing on MySpace Music only through
the weekend, and then on Tuesday as part of the World Painted Blood Deluxe Edition.
No mere music video, the 20-minute “Playing with Dolls” was created
and directed by Mark Brooks (Metalocalypse) and is a stark, 12-part nightmare
that breathes corrupt life into Slayer’s latest syllabus of stalkers,
psychopaths and serial killers, merging their aberrant psyches into the
supremely focused desire of a single, merciless malcontent. A methodical
distillation of one man’s lethal frenzy, the film follows the gruesome
outbursts of a nameless protagonist. He is not an indiscriminate murder junkie,
but rather a highly creative snuff-artist with a deeply personal sense of
purpose – a man for whom murder is the only conceivable way forward. With a
black heart hardened by tragedy, he chooses his victims carefully. His methods
are as grisly and varied as they are poetic.
To complete this seizing of MySpace Music, every slot on the MySpace’s Music
Video Homepage will be filled with Slayer music videos, shout-outs, digital
clips of the band providing some behind-the-scenes perspective on World
Painted Blood, and other terrifying tidbits.
