Slayer to Invade MySpace Music This Weekend

Starting tonight at Midnight, Slayer will commandeer the site's Music Home Page for the entire Halloween weekend.

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. You've probably heard a few morsels from it - "Psychopathy Red," "Hate Worldwide," and the title track -- but now you'll be able to hear "Snuff," "Public Display of Dismemberment," "Not of This God," and "Beauty Through Order" - the whole thing, start to finish and on demand - until Tuesday when you can own your own copy.

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.

"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 more.
