SLAYER: More Studio Photos Available Online

Tuesday, 2nd September 2014

SLAYER’s official Facebook page has posted new photos (courtesy of Andrew Stuart Photography) of the band working with legendary producer Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden, Metal Church) at an undisclosed studio in California. Stuart says: “Week 1 (is) in the can.”

The follow-up to 2009’s World Painted Blood and as-yet-untitled album is tentatively set for an early 2015 release date. The album will make SLAYER history as it will be released on Nuclear Blast Records through the band’s own label imprint, closing out a 28-year relationship with Rick Rubin and American Recordings. No name for the imprint has been decided on yet. All future recordings on the band’s label imprint will be released worldwide exclusively through Nuclear Blast.

SLAYER – Tom Araya/vocals, bass, Kerry King/guitar, drummer Paul Bostaph, and Gary Holt who continues to stand in for the band’s founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman – unleashed the new song “Implode” in April. The song was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with producer Terry Date and co-producer Greg Fidelman.
