Slayer Split From Rick Rubin
Slayer have split with producer Rick Rubin for the first time in 28 years, Classic Rock reports.

While Rubin has been involved in every Slayer album since "Reign in Blood," the band will not be working with him on their next album release. Furthermore, they are no longer releasing albums on Rubin's American Recordings label, having announced that their next album will be coming out on Nuclear Blast.

Speaking of the situation, Slayer frontman Tom Araya offered the following comment:

"Rick has played a huge role in our career - we've made some great albums with him.

"But today is a new day. Record companies don't play the kind of role they once did, and we really like the idea of going out on our own, connecting directly with our fans; and Nuclear Blast is fired up about taking on that challenge with us."

Slayer recently debuted Implode, the first new song from the band in five years and the first to feature guitarist Gary Holt.
