We’ve known for a while now that the almighty Slayer has been hard at work on their next record. Back in January Kerry King said that “he’s very stoked about the stuff they’re gonna be putting out.” Then in April the heavy metal icons unleashed the new track “Implode” to the masses, and reviews were beyond positive! What that taste of the new material, that you can still download here, you could tell that Kerry has taken full control of the writing, and as long as he’s happy with it, I’m sure Slayer fans will be as well.

So what’s the latest? Kerry was recently interviewed by ARTE Concert at last weekend’s Wacken Open Air festival, and gave this update, “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.
