As we all know by now, the almighty Slayer is currently in the studio working on their new album, which will be coming out later this year. Kerry King previously said this about the new material, “For anybody that was worried about what SLAYER was gonna sound like post-Hanneman, don’t worry about it. I know people are gonna think that, people are gonna expect us to fail because it’s the first record without Jeff; I get it. But I’m also very proud of what of we’ve done so far towards new material. It’s fast, the slow stuff’s heavy. I mean, it’s… Everything that people liked SLAYER for in the past is on this record.”
Gary Holt added that it was “crushing heavy and it’s dark and sinister and it’s everything you hope a Slayer album should be.”
In a brand new interview with ESP Guitars during Namm 2015, that you can watch below, Gary also said this about the new material, “It’s been an honor to watch Kerry King work as hard as he does. People don’t understand how much he lives, breathes and bleeds for Slayer and he, through all the adversity, has really made a monster record, and when people gonna hear it, they’re gonna shit their pants.”
Get your diapers ready, because new Slayer is definitely coming this year, and if all of these statements are true, it’s going to be one hell of a record! Join me in screaming…..
