SLAYER fan site SlayerSaves.com has posted a "sneak peek" at the packaging for the group's "Soundtrack To The Apocalypse" box set, which is set to be officially released tomorrow (Nov. 25) through American Recordings/Ume. Check it out here.
As previously reported, "Soundtrack To The Apocalypse" includes tracks spanning every SLAYER album since 1986, soundtrack cuts, Japan-only tracks, more than a dozen rarities, and a DVD of live performances spanning 20 years, all digitally remastered. The deluxe edition adds a full-length concert CD from SLAYER's 2002 "God Hates Us All" tour stop in Anaheim, California, presented in a "blood pack" sleeve (with faux blood and floating skulls). The tour was the band's first with original drummer Dave Lombardo since 1992. The deluxe edition also includes a wall banner and replica backstage laminate. Both editions have an extensive, 60-page booklet spotlighting a history based on interviews with each bandmember and long-time producer Rick Rubin.
