Tom Araya: 'New Slayer Album Has to Be Extraordinary'
Despite expressing a pessimistic attitude regarding the band's future on several recent occasions, Slayer singer/bassist Tom Araya stressed that the group is still in obligation to bring something special to the table with the new album as a proper tribute to late guitarist Jeff Hanneman. "This record has to be something special, it has to be extraordinary - it can't just be another Slayer record," Araya told Metroactive. "There's a lot on the plate for the band, and we've gotten quite a bit of support from a lot of fans.

"We've also gotten a lot of negative feedback about things that we've done
[over the years], so we'll see what the future holds. Usually our attitude about that has been 'F--k 'em!' It seems to have worked for us so far, so I doubt we'll change that aspect of the band." Tom also once again noted that after the band's done with their touring obligations, they'll have to sit down and discuss the future. "There was a lot of stuff that we had already lined up to do, and then we got the news about Jeff passing - so at the moment it's more about fulfilling obligations - after this tour is over, we have to sit down and really discuss what the plans are, what the future is," he explained. "We're moving forward, and finishing up the year, basically so everyone can have closure," Araya concluded. "It will allow fans to have closure too and we can all remember Jeff one last time."
