In celebration of what fans call International Slayer Day, heavy metal band Slayer has released a collector's vinyl box set of Repentless.

First released in 2015, Repentless is the band’s first album released after the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

The vinyl box set will be a limited edition available in gold, red and black colored discs. Fans can order the box set through the website of their label, Nuclear Blast, at nuclearblast.de.

Fans are encouraged not to use headphones to force anyone around them to celebrate the event.

This year marks the 13th International Slayer Day. Slayer is known for their defiant, uncompromising and loud music in albums like South of Heaven and Reign in Blood.
