SLAYER Reveals Cover Art For “Repentless”Tuesday, 16th June 2015
Thrash metal legends SLAYER have posted the cover art for their forthcoming new album, Repentless.
The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco in collaboration with the band’s Tom Araya and Kerry King.
“We had a number of submitted ideas for the cover artwork,” said Araya, “and we felt Marcelo’s was the best. We made some suggestions and the result is an awesome album cover.”
The “Repentless” title track will be available digitally virtually everywhere around the globe this Friday, June 19.
“‘Repentless’ is my Jeff [Hanneman] tribute,” said King. “I call it the ‘HannemAnthem.’ It’s my perspective of Jeff’s perspective, it’s what I think… If Jeff wrote a song for himself, ‘Repentless’ would be it.”
