Stay Tuned for Premiere of SRL Video 

Last year's Ghostly Scenes of Infernal Desecration: An SRL End of Days Production was filmed by a stellar crew of film makers and videographers and the result is an amazing edit by Ian Williamson and Babalou where the audience is immersed within a 16 channel audio recording, putting them into the middle of the performance, while 10 10' screens surround them with a multi-camera, multi-screen edited video. By far the most accurate reproduction of an SRL show, as well as an experience impossible to have live.

Watch this site for more details on when and where it will be shown!
