From Slayerized.com, Kerry King dishes on progress of the new album and an update on Jeff

http://www.slayerized.com/whatsnew/2012/02/kerry-king-gives-more-details-about-the-new-album/


1) Always happy for new Slayer material although I am very sad they aren't going to do any acoustic stuff :mad:

2) Maybe this means they will break out a new song during the summer tour?

3) Glad to see Jeff is making progress I hope to see him in Denver July 8th

I wish slayer would stop making albums. I really liked God hates us all and Christ Illusions but World Painted blood was nothing but a pile of dog shit. Unit 731 is a great song but the rest of the album is a bore fest. They should stop making albums and just go on that Finale Giant world tour before one of them crokes and calls it quits.

I also felt WPB> Christ Illusion.

Anyways, looking forward to this. I think King said somewhere that the songs don't sound like their recent material and that they sound more like their 83-85 era. I don't know how much truth is in there, but if true, should be great.

Didn't Kerry King a while back say that WPB would likely be the last Slayer album? I know it was well before it was recorded and hasn't mentioned it since then, but you'd think with Jeff still recovering and Tom Araya's health issues as well they'd call it quits.

You sure? I've never heard him say that. Maybe I missed it, though. It seems he usually says the albums have a Seasons + God Hates Us All feel. He said that about both Christ Illusion and WPB.

WPB has some great songs and some stinkers. I like it, though it's one of my least favorite Slayer albums. I actually really like Christ Illusion.

I think I remember Tom saying that. I do remember King saying that there would probably be 2-3 albums after Christ Illusion before they called it quits. With Greg Fidelman producing, I have little hope for the album, also, about this sounding like their older material, I'm pretty sure he said the same thing about Christ Illusion.

I like Christ Illusion a lot. It's my favorite post-Seasons album. WPB is pretty meh. Some good, some bad. My favorite songs off the album are the more unorthodox ones (Human Strain and Playing With Dolls). And Americon is just horrible, I have no idea why they chose to play it live. I'm not expecting much from this new album but I'm sure there will be some songs I'll like from it.

Yep. I've never had a problem with it. It's more interesting than the "let's try and be as Slayer as possible" discs. Jeff wrote basically all of the music, so it at least has riffs on it that aren't the bottom of the barrel thrash formula stuff Kerry "writes".

Slayer albums are only popular when they're the same old stuff over and over again though.

The worst part about this is that it sounds like you guys have already made up your mades, regardless of how good or bad it ends up being. You really should be a bit more optimistic; Kerry wrote some of the best metal songs ever. And while Gary didn't write anything, I wouldn't be surprised if he had some influence. The guy is an outstanding guitarist (unlike Jeff) and probably pushed Kerry to work even harder.

The album would definitely be better with Jeff, but it probably won't be awful.

It's gonna be ok guys, the album is going to be sooooo metal that Gary Holt fucked up his wrist writing it!

There’s no doubt that Slayer‘s next album is one of the most anticipated discs of the New Year, and guitarist Gary Holt just gave everyone reason to believe that it’s going to be special.
Speaking with SiriusXM ‘Liquid Metal’ host Jose Mangin (as transcribed by Revolver), Holt teased the new album’s progress with some lofty platitudes. When Mangin brought up ‘Implode,’ the song that Slayer released last year, Holt stated, “‘Implode’ is a great song. I really love it. It’s a lot of fun to play. Compared to the other stuff Kerry [King] has written it’s nothing. Doesn’t even touch it.”
Holt says that he really let loose on the new album as well, revealing, “I went down to do solos and I did nine leads in one day and I went home. Everybody was like damn that was crazy, and what I did was I blew my left wrist out. I was shredding so long and hard and I just wanted to get through them and I felt pain halfway through it and I just kept going and the next day I couldn’t even move my hand.”
The guitarist says that he was given the chance to revisit his parts a few days later, but after listening back to what he did, Holt says, “I was just shredding man, not even gonna mess with them.”
As for what fans can expect, the axeman added, “There’s a little bit of everything but everything I’d reference to is 100 percent Slayer. I mean, it’s crushing heavy and it’s dark and sinister and it’s everything you hope a Slayer album should be. There’s no ballads!”
Though no official album title or street date has spilled out yet, Nuclear Blast confirmed that Slayer will be among their 2015 releases.

Slayer to Issue New Song 'When the Stillness Comes' on Record Store Day

Slayer will be celebrating Record Store Day this year with a picture-disc seven-inch that contains their new song "When the Stillness Comes" ahead of the band's new album later this year. The group recorded the song last year in Los Angeles with producer Terry Date.

The single's A-side features the image of a blood-stained skull with the band's name carved into it, while the flipside sports an inverted cross and a live version of their song "Black Magic" – originally released on their 1983 debut, Show No Mercy – that they recorded at Germany's Wacken festival last year. The single is limited to 5,000 copies and will be available only at the participating stores listed on the Record Store Day website on April 18th.

Slayer last released a new song a year ago, when they premiered "Implode" at the Golden Gods Awards and subsequently put it out as a free download on their website. It was the first new song the group had issued since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who died in 2013 of liver failure. Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in for Hanneman, and the band also now features returning drummer Paul Bostaph. Bostaph replaced founding member Dave Lombardo, who parted ways with Slayer after a contract dispute.

Last February, Hanneman was honored in the small Polish town of Jaworzno with a traffic circle named after him. The roundabout was rechristened, in true metal fashion, "Jeff Hanneman's Circle Pit."

In 2013, Slayer guitarist Kerry King told Rolling Stone that the group intends to put out some previously unreleased songs that his counterpart had written before his death. "There was a song left over from the last album that Jeff finished as an afterthought called 'Piano Wire,'" he said. "It wasn't on the album because it wasn't as good as the other songs. I knew Jeff was gonna work on the lyrics and get it done. He was always talking about reworking the song.... I know there are two other ones, which are incomplete things, which he had for 15 to 20 years. Those will come out."

If anything the fact that it came out on 9/11/2001 makes it more edgy. I mean, come on, an album called God Hates us all coming out on the same day as a terrible terrorist event? Especially with the name of the album, and with promotional materials and flyers around the country with the tagline "God Hates us all on Sept 11, 2001" or something along those lines?

It wasn't purposely edgy, but the fact that it was total coincidence and just resulted in a lot of unintentional skepticism about the album title and the promotion behind it (I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that those said flyers were torn down by label people immediately), and now you're doing the same thing years later on purpose? Even if they hadn't released it on 9/11/2001 it would still be lame as fuck, but already doing it without any planning behind such a thing is what makes this shit not edgy at all, assuming they're going for that. And since two mainstream rappers did the same shit 8 years ago, do you really think anyone is going to give a fuck or make any flak about some past their prime Metal band releasing an album on an independent label that'll maybe shift 30,000 units in its first week?

I doubt the marketing team behind Slayer chose 9/11 as the release date because they thought it would generate all kinds of mainstream publicity and "edginess."

9/11 was probably picked because the marketing team was hoping folks like us who post on boards like Metalsetlists.com and take this shit way too seriously would speculate about why 9/11 was chosen and talk about the new Slayer album more than we would if it was released on, say Aug. 19.

Here's some tidbits on the songs going to be on the album, with a total of 12

In a recent interview with U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine, King spoke about some of the individual tracks that will appear on "Repentless".

"There's a couple of songs that are going to be on it that the fans might know," he said. "'Atrocity Vendor' was released in the States on the B-side of some single [a limited vinyl edition of 'World Painted Blood'], so now it's 'Atrocity Vendor 2015'. It's completely re-recorded. It's got new leads, new vocals, Paul playing drums ... it's pretty cool. There's a brand new version of 'Implode' [which was recorded in 2014 and given away for free] on there. The version of 'When The Stillness Comes' is brand new compared to the single [that came] out [for last month's Record Store Day]."

He continued: "The first song is called 'Repentless' and that one's pretty much... I call it the Hannemanthem! I wrote that for [late SLAYER guitarist] Jeff [Hanneman]. Oh, dude, it's fast as fuck. You don't know what the fuck's coming! [Laughs] A song called 'Vices' is on there somewhere. It's super heavy. It'll pummel you in the face. 'Take Control''s another fast one. 'Cast The First Stone''s another heavy one."

King added: "There's 12 songs on it, one being the intro, one being 'Implode', one being 'Atrocity Vendor' and one being 'When The Stillness Comes', but every version of those songs you may have heard before is different, so I think that's cool, but I also wanted them to be part of a collection. I like the finality of songs belonging on a record. It's probably about 40 or 45 minutes, maybe less. We did 'God Hates Us All' and we put every song we had at the time on the record because that was the trendy thing to do, but as soon as we did that, I vowed never to do it again. I grew up with 10-song albums."

I thought Stillness was a decent song except for the beginning. I don't think the beginning was BAD, just too long. And I'm in the minority as I thought Implode was a fuckin bad ass song. Really dug it.

I'm not expecting the album to be a classic, but based on the two songs we've heard so far, I think there's good potential.

I liked the start, but I agree it only needed one of those passages. Didn't really matter which. Then they could have used the other one on a different song as both are decent, just redundant together.

and new single news:

Additionally, the band has announced that they’ll release the title track as a digital single this Friday, June 19. According to Kerry King, the song is intended as an ode to the late Jeff Hanneman:
“‘Repentless’ is my Jeff tribute. 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.”

First impressions, not mind blowing but still solid I can see it being a sing-along at live shows

Also small side note, early in the video I'm fairly certain I recognize the live shot as being filmed at Riot Fest last year in Denver (there is a bridge shot around 1:00 that is Colfax running right next to the parking lot of Migh High Stadium). Nerdy I know but still cool

I really liked the instrumental number to start out the album. Have Slayer ever really done an instrumental like this? I know they had Darkness of Christ to start God Hates Us All but I wouldn't really call that instrumental. Is there something obvious I'm forgetting?

I really liked Take Control.

Didn't D.I. or D.I.M. have an instrumental opening? I could be wrong, been a long time since I've listened to either of those.

Listened to this at work. I really like it; it isn't a masterpiece but I think overall it is their best work in a long time (maybe since Seasons, idk). What stands out to me is that the album is very energized like the 6 year break between albums not to mention the passing of Jeff and Dave leaving the band may have did them well. Even the songs I haven't gelled with sound wise are up tempo.

Favs so far

-Delusions of Savior- Finally a instrumental intro by Slayer. If done right instrumental intros can really set the tone for the album in a good way
-Repentless
-Take Control
-When the Stillness Comes
-Cast the First Stone- it's growing on me
-Chasing Death
-Piano Wire- I can really hear Jeff's writing in this; I was afraid KK would screw it up but all in all a nice job

Like I said not a Masterpiece but it feels refreshing after a so-so Christ Illusion and a good but flawed World Painted Blood. I'll listen to it some more but I think a solid 8.5/10 is what I'll give Repentless

I still don't completely understand why so many people hated WPB. I thought there was 5 or 6 really good songs on it. I'm not saying they are like late 80s/early 90s Slayer good but still really good.

I love WPB. Pretty much everything except for Americon, Playing With Dolls, and Not of This God is awesome on that record. I wish Psychopathy Red got a bit more recognition for being one of the most brutal Slayer songs in decades. Hate Worldwide has really grown on me too (seeing it live definitely helps).

Along with the album the music video for the title track came out:

(right now the video is locked only viewable if you click the link in the RS story)

Not bad. Killing. Riots. Blood. Gore. A Slayer video. And the first proper live action one since.....shit Bloodline?

I'd have to go back and count but KK has at least double if not more

I do like WPB just some tracks bring it down, like Americon and Not of This God (just another KK religion rant song). Hate Worldwide is a love-hate (see what I did there) thing for me. It sounds good but I can't get into it and it being played live all the time for me just means a better song like psychopathy red or beauty through order or even Human Strain did not get played. Like I said a good but flawed album IMO

Americon is a big pile of shit. There's no getting around it. I think the awfulness of that song really sways the perception of that album in that it's such a terrible song. I wonder if that song wasn't ever made if that changes perception at all.

I remember Kerry saying in an interview in the late 1990's that his solos were mostly just him playing as many notes as he could as fast as he could and he could never reproduce them because he had no idea what he was doing.

One of Slayer's worst records - the lyrics just totally stop it from being anything for mediocre. Two full listens and I don't even have a particular highlight, nothing jumps out at me.

Oh well!

Picked up the album this weekend. Listened twice, and like Dextrimental, nothing really jumps out at me as amazing or very memorable. There are a few songs that I enjoy, and one song that starts out very rad with a punk sounding riff, but then turns to Slayer, but overall just kinda there.

I wouldn't say its a bad album, and it may grow on me, but just sounds like Slayer, which isn't bad, but nothing breathtaking either. I WILL say that its better than World Painted Blood and possibly Christ Illusion, but overall just sounds/feels like God Hates Us All 2.0 without Jeff.

EDIT: I did get the delux edition, so even if the album itself was just there, I at least got a killer layout and a DVD with their Wacken 2014 performance and making of. I love making of DVDs :party:

Picked this up today. The songs are whatever. Repentless and Implode (which sounds WAY better than the version from a year ago) aren't bad. But the production, holy fucking shit. This is one of the hugest mixes I've ever heard on a metal band. The drums especially are just like apocalyptic. The guitars are so spread out over the stereo spectrum that it's just bananas. This album is an audio engineer's wet dream.

Since we are looking at how well Book of Souls is doing in that thread, I figured I would share how well Repentless is doing, and so far it is doing very well:
