Slayer "Still Reigning" American Recordings 2004 reviewed by: Ken Pierce
Those that attended the “Jaegermeister Music Tour 2003” will remember that “Reign In Blood” was performed as the encore to the bands set. Since I attended these shows, I found it to be a pretty excellent treat for all of the fans. The only difference from those nights is that during the climax of this DVD, the band is drenched in blood that pours down upon them and covers the players and the instruments. It is an intense visual as only you would expect from a band like Slayer.
While one of my criticisms of the DVD is the fact that they did not include the entire performance from the shows and I am guessing that this was avoided in order to have this DVD to be different from the “War” DVD. The bonus songs featured on the DVD were actually performed at the beginning and it would have been nice to perhaps see a couple of the recent videos they had done. “Reign In Blood” is performed to its perfection and it is excellent to see the original lineup in their most brutal fashion. Slayer while a band best experienced live, is still able to give you an example of what to expect in this DVD. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed at these masters of the craft.
