By | Published on Tuesday 24 April 2012


Slayer have nine songs written for a new album and recently began recording them with producer Greg Fidelman, who also handled the band’s last album ‘World Painted Blood’, guitarist Kerry King has confirmed.

Speaking to Loudwire, King said: “We’ve only been working on it for a couple of weeks right now, since our producer [Fidelman] had a small window. Me and Dave [Lombardo, drums] are working on nine songs, so we thought we could get in and finish two or three and demo everything else, so that’s what we’re trying to do now”.

He added that fans may be able to hear a new track before the band head out on this year’s Mayhem touring festival: “I don’t know if anything will come out by Mayhem or not. Hopefully we’ll get two done and we can get it out to Mayhem”.
