Slayer Album Due This Year
Slayer guitarist Kerry King has confirmed their long-awaited new album will be released this year. Their last album "World Painted Blood" was released in 2009. They hoped to start writing again soon after, but production was halted when guitarist Jeff Hanneman contracted a flesh-eating virus from a spider bite. Now King confirms that eleven songs have been written for the album, and they just need to head into a recording studio to finish it up. Sadly, Jeff Hanneman is yet to contribute with any songwriting because of his illness. "The whole hold-up now, as with every record we ever do: it seems like [head of label American Recordings] Rick Rubin changes distributors. And we're kind of, like, left in limbo until he lands somewhere," he told Eddie Trunk (via Blabbermouth). "I mean, realistically, we're without a deal [right now], but we plan on staying with Rick. But he's working out his distribution - when that gets settled, we'll be recording. So I am very comfortable saying it will be out this year." King says he hasn't spoken to Jeff in a while, but according to their manager, he's keen to recover and get back to playing guitar. But what if it's too late to contribute to this record? "I have enough material to do it on my own, if need be," said King. "But I'm open; if Jeff comes to the party with some material, hell yeah, I've got extras." See the full interview here:
