Our CFF 2017 Salute to music videos doesn’t end with the Undaground block. There’s a reason iconic metal band Slayer—formed in 1981—is still widely considered one of the world’s greatest, most extreme and most influential heavy metal bands. On its acclaimed 2015 album Repentless, Slayer offered concrete proof that, even after all these years, the band could still live up to its name.
As long-time CFF fans know from our Sonic Cinema block, we’re fascinated by the relationship between film and music. The ambitious trilogy of videos made from Repentless tracks—“Repentless,” “You Against You,” and “Pride in Prejudice”—are joined together here to create a narrative: the brutal, intense, and tragic tale of a former Neo Nazi who chose love over hate, with dire consequences.
The trilogy’s mysterious man in the eye patch is long-time CFF favorite Jason Trost (The FP). McDonnell and Trost will both be on hand to let us devil horn salute this incredibly cool achievement. (CFF PRO-TIP Pair this up with fellow CFF 2017 selections Mayhem & The Devil’s Candy for the most metal film fest experience of your life).
