Slayer - _Live Intrusion_
(American Visuals, 1995)
by: Gino Filicetti (10 out of 10)
Holy fuck! That's all I could say after the 70-minute onslaught of pure Slaytanic mayhem that this home video delivers. Incredible to say the least, Slayer have managed to capture the essence of their insanity on this home video. This video was shot at Slayer's final concert on the _Divine Intervention_ tour at the Mesa Amphitheatre in Mesa, Arizona. The film is directed by NFL films' mastermind Phil Tuckett, a perfect choice to capture the brutality which ensues at every Slayer concert. I can safely say that I've never seen a home video filmed from so many camera angles including a first time 'Mosh Cam.' There is never a dull moment in this film, and I have YET to speak about the music. Contained herein are 9 classic Slayer cuts, 5 tracks from _Divine Intervention_ and 1 cover of Venom's "Witching Hour" performed with the aid of Machine Head's drummer Chris Kontos and singer/guitarist Rob Flynn. As with all home videos, offstage and backstage footage is included to give the viewer an inside look at the band. Unfortunately, with the footage they included, Slayer seem to be a bunch of immature dumbasses, which of course, THEY ARE! :) Nevertheless, this video is AN ABSOLUTE MUST for Slayer fans of all ages and for anyone who has yet to experience the mayhem of a Slayer-pit. Also included at the beginning of this tape is exclusive footage of the 'arm-carving session' performed on the crazy, but willing fan who appears on the _Divine Intervention_ CD cover, a gruesome ordeal to say the least.
