Not content with just haunting the chapel, Slayer is coming to possess your TV.

On August 17, the thrash-metal titans will reissue the out-of-print DVD titles “War at the Warfield” and “Still Reigning,” from 2003 and 2004, respectively. The pair will be joined by 1995’s “Live Intrusion,” which has been digitally remastered for this first-time-ever release. All three DVDs will be sold separately at retail and online ($13.98 each). A limited edition “Slayer Live DVD 3-Pak” ($29.98), will be available exclusively on Slayer’s website, www.slayer.net.

Along with Slayer’s signature brand of murderous metal mayhem, the DVD’s offer footage of Machine Head’s Robb Flynn and Chris Kontos joining Slayer on stage for a cover of Venom’s “Witching Hour.” You’ll also meet some of Slayer’s very … how-shall-we-say… um, “interesting” fans, including the nut job who had “Slayer” carved into his inner forearm as the ultimate souvenir (because chicks dig scars!).

Also in the works is an upcoming box set titled, “The Vinyl Conflict,” which will feature 10 Slayer albums on 11 discs. The set will feature the band’s entire Def/American Recordings catalogue:  “Reign in Blood (1986),” “South of Heaven (1988),” “Seasons In The Abyss (1990),” the double-record “Live Decade of Aggression (1991),” “Divine Intervention (1994),” “Undisputed Attitude (1998),” “God Hates Us All (2001),” “Christ Illusion (2006),” and “World Painted Blood (2009).”  “The Vinyl Conflict” will be released on October 12, 2010
