What the press wrote about the release of Slayer Reign in Blood Wine!

Metal Injection

I know I’ve ragged on Slayer for having shitty merch before, but I think this is sort of cool. While not the first band to get into alcohol, I fully support this synergy. I mean, a Slayer red wine called Reign In Blood? It practically sells itself!

Metal Insider

Bands like KISS, Motörhead, Ratt and many others all have their line of wines. So given how eager they’ve been recently to slap their name on almost any product, is it at all surprising that a Slayer-themed wine will be hitting the market soon?


Do you look for red wines that are “uncompromising and tough,” with an “undisputed attitude”? Have you been searching everywhere for a wine to drink while “headbanging,” preferably one that has spent “a couple of seasons in the abyss”? Oh, and, do you speak Swedish?

If you’ve answered yes to all of those questions, you’ll be happy to hear that the band Slayer, like heavy metal colleagues Whitesnake, Queensrÿche’s Geoff Tate, Ratt and even the late Randy Rhoads, has entered the wine business.



Metal veterans have put their name to a Californian Cabernet Sauvignon. Slayer have become the latest band to announce that they will be launching their own brand of red wine.

The wine, which is fittingly named ‘Reign In Blood’, is a Cabernet Sauvignon from California and not made out of the blood of any sacrificed animals. According to Classic Rock, the wine, much like Slayer’s brand of heavy metal, will have a “tough and uncompromising taste”.
