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".

Sadly, it's currently only onsale in Sweden, so you'll have to order some specially rather than heading to the supermarket. You can find out more about 'Reign In Blood' at Brandsforfans.se.

Slayer are following in the footsteps of AC/DC, who brought out their own range of wine last year. The Australian arena rockers launched four wines, the first is 'Highway To Hell' which is a Cabernet Sauvignon, the second is 'Hells Bells', which is a Sauvignon Blanc, a third is, of course, called 'Back In Black' which is a Shiraz and finally there is 'You Shook Me All Night Long', which is a Moscato.

Slayer are currently working on new material for the follow-up to their 2009 record 'World Painted Blood'.
