Slayer - "Wall of Blood" cities 26.10.2004
"According to Slayer fan site SlayerSaves.com, SLAYER have announced the cities on the group's upcoming Jägermeister Music Tour that will include an effect dubbed the "Wall of Blood."
At select shows (determined by each venue's technical specs) during SLAYER's classic song "Raining Blood", the band, their instruments, and the stage will be drenched by a downpour of "blood." The "Wall of Blood" will rain more than 150 litres of theatrical blood over an area measuring from 32-feet to 40-feet wide (determined by the size of the venue's stage), 25-feet high, and six-feet deep. The device is a dedicated truss and sprinkler system that utilizes a unique pump technology, and was designed exclusively for Slayer by U.K.-based Hangman Productions.
Slayer first used the "raining blood" effect last July in Augusta, ME while filming their brand-new DVD, "Still Reigning". The Dean Karr-directed DVD, due on November 2, opens with the the band's 1986, 28-minute benchmark album "Reign In Blood" performed live in its entirety by Slayer's original line-up — Tom Araya (vocals, bass), guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Dave Lombardo, who permanently rejoined the band in 2003.
